Like pundits in search of an apocryphal Barack Obama skeet-shooting photograph, Capitol Hill conservatives have been scampering for a reason to oppose former Republican Sen. Chuck Hagel’s nomination as defense secretary. Last week, they deemed Hagel too conservative for Obama supporters: He’s an anti-Semite! He’s not cool with the gays! But now that those ad hominems have failed to inspire much chattering beyond the Beltway, Republicans are attacking Hagel from the right: He’s a dirty hippie peacenik who wants to steal our atomic security!
