American History - Picking and Choosing

Andrew Sullivan's anti-Bush hysteria is making him sloppy:
QUOTE FOR THE DAY I: "I fear you do not fully comprehend the danger of abridging the liberties of the people. Nothing but the sternest necessity can ever justify it. A government had better go to the extreme of toleration, than to do aught that could be construed into an interference with, or to jeopardize in any degree, the common rights of its citizens," - Abraham Lincoln, in the midst of a national insurrection. It's on page 523 of Doris Kearns Goodwin's wonderful new book, "Team of Rivals." The italics are in the original.

QUOTE FOR THE DAY II: "We do not torture," - George W. Bush, earlier this week.
What a silly bint.

Hey Andrew, did you forget when Lincoln - in the midst of a national inssurection - suspended habeas corpus? Take a pill Andy.
