"I would urge you to observe some minimum proper conduct and language..."

Orwellian overtones, anyone? This comes via Andrew Sullivan, who picked it up via a seemingly endless chain of other bloggers. It's a speech made to the UN Human Rights Commission by Hillel Neuer, the head of UN Watch, an organization that's clearly needed. If only its sentiments were considered "admissible." As others have pointed out, this is worthy of note not only because of Neuer's statement, but because of the way that statement is, as one blogger smartly put it, "compounded by the response of the chair."
