    And too selfless.

    This man is an exceptionally low form of life, even by right-wing standards. His career has consisted of taking scalps - he doesn't work to advance the fortunes of his political allies, only to ruin the lives and careers of his opponents, whom he treats as enemies. He was probably the person operationally responsible for destroying both Dan Rather's and Elliot Spitzer's careers, while his own personal life has been very much at odds with conservative orthodoxy.

    Libertarianism, with its attendant extreme selfishness, is probably a more suitable ideology for him, but that doesn't make me think that he has become one iota more ethical than he has ever been. Quite the opposite, actually.

    "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself."........ "The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little." (yeah, same guy.)
