  •  Didn't Tucker say he was against the war... (0+ / 0-)

    ...a few years back? He IS quite the duplicitous one--he just LURVES the Bushites, yet he's "against the war." And he's never even given any substantial reason why.

    Interesting, that. But I do give him props, in a bland "well, a stopped clock is right twice a day" sort of manner, for coming out against the war well in advance of the 2004 elections, for whatever that was worth at the time:

    Mr. Carlson has had a change of heart recently. While he’s still a staunch conservative—he’s anti-abortion, married with four kids—he’s changed his mind about the war in Iraq. "I think it’s a total nightmare and disaster, and I’m ashamed that I went against my own instincts in supporting it," he said. "It’s something I’ll never do again. Never. I got convinced by a friend of mine who’s smarter than I am, and I shouldn’t have done that. No. I want things to work out, but I’m enraged by it, actually."

    Mr. Carlson—never really a card-carrying member of the vast right-wing conspiracy—said he had broken off from the hawkish neoconservatives who flogged the war from the get-go. "I’m getting more paleo every day," he said, referring to the so-called paleoconservatives.

    Yeah, but I still think he's a doofus.
