It's okay for Bush to lie...

just not okay for him to deceive poor Andrew Sullivan!. Wahh!

Sterling notes that two years ago in the New Republic, Andrew said presidential lying was a good thing. Now it's a bad thing.

Maybe this is that moral clarity and absolutism we keep hearing about.

But, anyway Andy, I haven't been deceived - I always knew Bush was neither a compassionate nor fiscal conservative, and that he would cave on most trade issues.

We couldn't even keep our promise to cut textile tariffs with Pakistan. Argentina's economy is in the dump and we can't even help out by getting rid of our beef import quota.
