Question Of The Day

From MEC at Mercury Rising:

George W. Bush criticized the Chinese government for rounding up dissenters to prevent unseemly displays during the Olympic Games:

“America stands in firm opposition to China’s detention of political dissidents, human rights advocates and religious activists,” Bush will declare in the marquee speech of his three-nation Asia trip. “We speak out for a free press, freedom of assembly and labor rights — not to antagonize China’s leaders, but because trusting its people with greater freedom is the only way for China to develop its full potential.”

Is anybody going to ask him what he thinks about the police doing the exact same kind of pre-emptive strike against possible protesters in Minneapolis and St. Paul?

Well, that depends.  When you say “anybody,” do you mean media, Democrats, or filthy hippie bloggers?  My answers would be, respectively, Hell No, Possibly But Not Probably, and Hell Yes.

The answer will be something along the lines of, “We do not round up activists; the police were just using enhanced making-sure-everything-is-okay techniques.”
