On Tuesday, The Washington Post’s delayed story on Obama’s no-show in Paris showed up on page A-9. On A-2, Post columnist Dana Milbank defended Obama with a column titled “Conservatives find their inner Francophiles.” He insisted “The conservatives are guilty of a bit of inconsistency, if not hypocrisy, in criticizing the Obama administration for snubbing a people they not long ago called cheese-eating surrender monkeys.”

This is as “inconsistent” as mocking the ultraliberalism of Boston and then sympathizing with Bostonians after terrorists blew up the finish line at the Boston Marathon. Are we supposed to believe Milbank would applaud conservatives if they never stopped to mourn a terrorist attack or make a "Boston Strong" gesture of good will?
