A Brief Note on (Imagined) Isolationism

Apparently, the buzz word of the month among media types is “isolationism.”  Numerous talking heads keep warning us of the “growing isolationist” tendencies on the right.  What are they referring to?  The right’s opposition to the war in Libya.  Somehow, this was a word that we never heard during the Bush administration.  Even when the left was willing to fight against our involvement in ANY war tooth and nail (not only because the cause was ignoble, but because war itself is inherently “bad” ((no, not evil!  that would be a moral judgment!))), we never saw the media misting up over the left’s “growing isolationism.”  No synthesis of ideas today: just noting again how quickly the sands move.
