Cruise Missile Leftists

Ari Berman takes aim at the "Democratic strategic class" and "liberal hawks" in particular in this week's issue of The Nation.

Good to see and, please, keep it coming. Tons of ink has been spilled on the neocons since 2002, and rightly so. But the folks Berman is talking about deserve equal amounts of critical attention because they are, at least in my estimation, just as much of an odious force in this nation's political scene.

And, as an added bonus, they make really easy targets. I, for one, scream in delight whenever an Ignatieff piece pops up because it always makes for great comedy. The other CMLs are often just as amusing, displaying the insularity and blindness that I suspect can only come from being well-entrenched in American think tanks and elite universities.
