Nick Denton points out the doublethink behind Bush's steel tariffs: How the hell can the US administration lecture the developing world on the virtues of free markets if it is unwilling to take on its own steel and textile lobbies?

Sell them Disney and remaindered drugs, and crush the towel-heads every decade when they rise up. (via Matt Welch)
