They need these stinking badges

Arthur Silber says to the right-wing warbloggers: It's hard to take you seriously about freedom of the press now, when you took the opposite position less than a year ago.

How quickly they forget.

Still, in the warbloggers' defense, their memories have been through a lot more trauma than the average person's over the past three years. War cheerleaders had about two dozen different primary reasons for supporting the Iraq war. These reasons sometimes changed more than once a day, and always with the claim that this reason has always been the real reason.

If I had turned over my brain over to that kind of 1984 thinking, my memory would probably be a bit damaged as well.

So, fellow liberals, how about a portion of that famous bleeding-heart sympathy for these beleaguered warbloggers? I think one of us with some coding savvy should make one of those desktop widgets. It would just be a simple one. Every morning, when the warblogger gets up, rips open the day's first bag of Cheetos and fires up the laptop, this desktop widget would remind the warblogger of his club's current position on freedom of the press.

On days like today, it would read:

warblogger widget support

But when the winds inevitably change, it would read:

warblogger widget oppose

If you know how to make these images into a widget, feel free.
