Do I even have to explain the stupidity of saying something like this about a regime that's broadly repressive? Do I need to explain that it's sort of like saying things would have been really different in Hitler's concentration camps if he'd only allowed inmates access to earth-moving equipment? And this is the depth of thought we get from a would-be U.S. senator?
Ladies and gentlemen, there are your movement conservatives. John Cole said for much of 2008 that John McCain's campaign seemed as if it was run by wingnut bloggers; we're basically to the point where you can say that about the whole Republican Party.
