Kevin Drum and Matthew Yglesias are getting annoyed with Glenn Reynolds's whole "Let's snoop around the news from 1946 and compare the situation then to the situation in Iraq right now" schtick. I've never been a regular reader of Reynolds, primarily because when I do read him I'm generally reminded of that scene in The Breakfast Club when Bender (Judd Nelson's degenerate) tells Andrew (Emilio Estevez's wrestler): "When I grow up I wanna be just like you. I figure all I need is a lobotomy and some tights."
(Yeah, that's not fair. Reynolds does link a lot of interesting stuff. But his own logic is invariably half-baked. Probably comes from updating eight blogs fifty times a day.)
