Tears all over town

I gave up sobriety for Lent.

It appears that American Republicans and Iranian Atomic Ayatollahs agree on one thing: both want Iran to have nukes.

Oddly, Republicans, who say Iran can’t be trusted, have told Iran that they (Republicans) can’t be trusted.

As the debate develops over a possible deal with Iran, remember that ad hominem will be used whenever a compelling counter-argument is lacking.

Today’s conservatives, from Mr Putin to the American Republican Tea Party to the UK Tories and fashionable Farageistas, appear to embrace, if not welcome, chaos. It is a radical brand of conservatism that seeks not to conserve institutions but rather to tear them down, in the name of ideology.
