Stupid Michael Ledeen Quote

This has been blogged around the block, but I can't resist pointing out the stupidity that is The Corner.

America was founded by explorers and conquerors, not "immigrants." If those guys had been immigrants they'd have had to learn indian...

Ledeen isn't kidding. He really believes that America has a Manifest Destiny.

"I think the level of casualties is secondary. I mean, it may sound like an odd thing to say, but all the great scholars who have studied American character have come to the conclusion that we are a warlike people and that we love war. . . . What we hate is not casualties but losing. And if the war goes well and if the American public has the conviction that we're being well-led and that our people are fighting well and that we're winning, I don't think casualties are going to be the issue."

Fun fact: Ledeen was denied tenure at Washington University because he plagiarized.

Hat tip to Jeremías.
