I guess I’m getting old and slower, but I can’t tell whether this, from Yglesias, is ironic or not. Certainly hope so…

Because what I was thinking about was incidents like this one, in which we were introduced to General William Boykin:

Discussing the battle against a Muslim warlord in Somalia, Boykin told another audience, “I knew my God was bigger than his. I knew that my God was a real God and his was an idol.”

Seemed a little extreme, and dangerous, to me. Update: Especially since Boykin had just been given a pretty big job in the Pentagon.
