Still, the suicidal nature of ideological cleansing, which is what I was referring to and which is what will cost Joe Lieberman his party’s nomination if he loses tomorrow, is that it is never-ending. ~John Podhoretz

Odd, ideological cleansing didn’t register too many alarms from JPod when Frum denounced about a dozen people.  Now the Kossacks and friends go after one, and he’s concerned for the fate of the Democratic Party?  He hasn’t normally seemed to trouble himself about the never-ending danger of the spirit of cleansing the impure on his side.  He does not say, “First they came for the paleos, but I was not a paleo, and so I said nothing…”  Of course, it is hard to sympathise with the targets of ideological cleansing when you and yours are the ones doing the denouncing.
