Real courage, real dissent

Left-wingers are always congratulating themselves on how brave they are to dissent against Bush administration policies. Oh, what courage, to "speak truth to power" when you're a rich Hollywood movie star, a tenured university professor or a paid flack for George Soros.

But let's talk about real courage. We previously mentioned how Bruce Bartlett seemed to have the exact same idea about Democratic scandals that we have documented in DONKEY CONS. Well, guess what?

Bruce Bartlett -- a well-respected economist who served in the administrations of both Reagan and Bush 41 -- was FIRED from his job at a conservative think tank.

Why? Because he wrote a book explaining why he believes President Bush is not a conservative.

That is courage.
