In the wake of Scott McClellan's book coming out, conservatives are lamenting the fact that liberals who previously thought McClellan was a dolt are now willing to accept his accusations wholesale.
In turn, I wanted to lament the fact that these laments are so common. It takes place on both sides, of course. Almost everyone is predisposed towards giving more credibility to those supporting their opinions. And the other side, never misses an opportunity to point out the hypocrisy.
It then occurred to me, however, that my lament about these laments was itself a tired complaint. And I lamented.
