"The term 'isolationist' is much like the word 'racist' in that it has become almost useless due to its overuse. For example, if the Left rightly considers Ku Klux Klan members racist — but also members of the Tea Party who merely criticize President Obama 'racist' -- such a glaring logical disparity cries out for a reassessment of terminology. A word that can mean anything can quickly become meaningless — and it also becomes a great rhetorical weapon in a political environment that substitutes smears for thoughtful debate." (06/13/11)
