The Priorities of Liberals

James Taranto at Opinion Journal writes:
Erstwhile fringe presidential candidate Ralph Nader, anti-American historian Howard Zinn and someone called Patti Smith (we think she's a songstress) are holding a STOP THE IRAQ WAR BRING THE TROOPS HOME event tomorrow at a Unitarian facility in Cambridge, Mass. (link in PDF). Admission is $10. Proceeds will go toward: a. Helping wounded soldiers. b. Helping wounded Iraqis. c. Debt relief for Iraq. d. Debt relief for Nader's presidential campaign. It won't shock you to learn the answer is (d). Maybe Naomi Klein is right when she says the left has accepted the idea that "Americans can only care about selfish demands."
