Oh the irony

The richness of the irony of this story is so very sweet.

"The American Civil Liberties Union is weighing new standards that would discourage its board members from publicly criticizing the organization's policies and internal administration.
"Where an individual director disagrees with a board position on matters of civil liberties policy, the director should refrain from publicly highlighting the fact of such disagreement," the committee that compiled the standards wrote in its proposals. "

Excuse me???? Isn't this the same ACLU that encourages people who disagree with big business or the Bush Administration to go public with any and ALL criticisms no matter who sensitive to national security?

I loved this quote though.

"Nat Hentoff, a writer and former A.C.L.U. board member, was incredulous. "You sure that didn't come out of Dick Cheney's office?" he asked. "

Ah yes.....hypocricy by any name would still be spelled D-E-M-O-C-R-A-T-S...
