On poor judgment

In response to Dr. Dawg's challenge, there's one Lib blogger willing to try to defend the Cons' free trade agreement with Colombia. But this one leads to a follow-up test: try to find a word of Bionic Liberal's post which wouldn't be equally applicable as an argument in favour of expanded trade with, say, apartheid-era South Africa. (If not more so, given that the obvious problems in Canada which BL claims should disqualify us from trying to take any action to preserve human rights anywhere were actually the model for the regime which Canada boycotted.)

So the rallying cry has gone up from the Libs: "we are all Rob Anders now".
