Who Loves Dictators?

It all depends on the dictator, but they all have their supporters. What’s inexplicable is how Mark Steyn has tried to suggest that it’s only liberals that get behind dictators. Really? Why then did Jonah Goldberg write such a loving eulogy for Augusto Pinochet? Why did Reagan send his buddy Don Rumsfeld to kick it with Saddam in the 1980s? Those are two examples off the top of my head, the fact is, I don’t see dictator support as a liberal quirk.
