Noonan - Part 2

Andrew Sullivan:
Am I the only one to free associate from Peggy Noonan's infamous quote last Sunday to the church sex abuse crisis?...And it's the same reasoning: your loyalty to an institution requires covering up its crimes, not exposing them. But there is one difference: child abuse was not the actual policy of the Vatican. Torture was the actual policy of the Bush White House. And still she walks on.
I'm sure we could find any number of other analogies, once we get into it.
