It's a sad freakin' world when it's considered ground breaking to see things from another culture's perspective. I don't think most on the right see this as an asset and not just something they are willing to overlook. But then again, if I put myself in their shoes (ala the great, intellectual, and noble thinker RP), it's great strategy towards ideologically distancing themselves from the Bush / neocon stigma.
Hey wait, is it still unamerican to criticize the president in a time of war? Just flashed back on some unpleasant history, sorry...
Snap back to reality, they didn't like Bush that much either... now.
