 "On the one hand, the conservative movement has gotten deeply invested in rhetorical tropes about 'freedom' and 'democracy.' On the other hand, the conservative movement is deeply hypocritical and mostly likes this rhetoric because it can be used as a club to wield against regimes that stand in the way of our geopolitical aspirations. Hosni Mubarak's Egypt is, on this score, not an anti-American rogue state. It's a client, a lackey, an ideologically and economically exhausted regime eager to do Washington's bidding." (02/03/11)
