But none of this means that I can agree with this article — or with the Pravda article on which it is partly based — in calling Palin a traitor for criticizing a president during a time of crisis (as if every time is not a time of crisis). That argument is precisely what George W. Bush supporters tried to use to silence dissent during the previous administration. It was a bad argument then, and since nothing has fundamentally changed, it is therefore a bad argument now.
It is particularly incongruous when that argument is presented by someone who, according to her on-page introduction, “staunchly defends the right to free speech and open dialogue.”
