Today's conservative columnist canard: Hating Bush = hating democracy.

In today's New York Times, David Brooks calls Bush-haters ignorant, and "a threat to democracy." Brooks cites the New Republic senior editor Jonathan Chait's column, "The Case for Bush Hatred: Mad About You."

Read Chait's column yourself. The case for Bush-hatred is neither ignorant nor anti-democratic; rather, it's pretty damn sensible.
