Ramesh Ponnuru on Karen Hughes & Life on National Review Online

Ramesh Ponnuru addresses comments made by President Bush and Karen Hughes:

National Review Online: "Hard words get said in politics. At last weekend's march, politicians suggested, explicitly or implicitly, that pro-lifers are enemies of the Constitution, haters of women, slave drivers, people without consciences, and opponents of civil rights."

Indeed, it seems harsh words in politics are only punnishable if they come from the right. Further comparision: Sen. Trent Lott's birthday wishes to Strom Thurman vs. Sen. Chris Dodd's wishes to Sen. Robert Byrd. In defense of Sen. Lott: at least his comments were not on the floor of the Senate!
