The Washington Post published an incoherent screed against Eric Holder written by a man named Edward Whelan today. Whelan is identified as the president of the Ethics and Public Policy Center (as well as former deputy in the OLC). What is the Ethics and Public Policy Center?
The Ethics and Public Policy Center was established in 1976 to clarify and reinforce the bond between the Judeo-Christian moral tradition and the public debate over domestic and foreign policy issues.
Check out their web page. Undiluted batshit craziness. “Pope was right to expose cult of the condom” (referring to opposition to the use of condoms to slow the spread of AIDs in Africa), “Should the University of Notre Dame honor our most anti-life president?”, an article by Rick Santorum, an article that wonders “If Whole Foods is a culture’s answer to the demise of the Sixth Commandment”.
Amazing what Fred Hiatt will publish.
Update. From the comments:
And it’s even more telling that the Post knows that someone who was at OLC during that time has no credibility. They included the note “His portfolio did not include national security matters.” in his bio line. They might have well said that “He worked in the sewer but he wasn’t covered in shit.”
