Neocon Ship of Fools

Johann Hari has an interesting account of what is an excursion into the netherworlds of American political life, a cruise with 500 National Review subscribers. The scariest aspect is that the views are representative of what passes for the elite in this country.

"The Iraq war has been an amazing success, global warming is just a myth – and as for Guantanamo Bay, it's practically a holiday camp... The annual cruise organised by the 'National Review', mouthpiece of right-wing America, is a parallel universe populated by straight-talking, gun-toting, God-fearing Republicans."

Read and be afraid.
