"Whoops, I see our time is up here."

It's always easier when you avoid the tough questions, isn't it?

Does anybody care to take a guess as to what the international outcry will be over reports that 2 American troopers were tortured and killed by Islamo-fanatics in Iraq? How many days of condemnation will the MSM dedicate to pillorying Islamist fanatics? How many of the world’s leftist elite will step forward and condemn the crime without the usual excuses thrown in (ie: If the USA wasn’t in Iraq, this wouldn’t happen)? How many lefty blogs will condemn the crime without drafting moral equivalency arguments that include Guantanamo or Abu Ghraib or Haditha? And, how many politicians from the “progressive” camp will condemn the deed without piggy-backing into a “withdrawal timetable”?

And, while we're on the topic, how many right-wing, fighting keyboarders are going to whip themselves into a froth over this without ever once pointing out that it was the Bush administration that decided to flush the protections of the Geneva Conventions down the loo before this happened?

As Jon Stewart would say, "Awwwwwwkward."

P.S. I'll bet this guy would appreciate the irony of the situation. If he wasn't dead, that is.

Why can't Conservatives/Republicans just comment on current events without pretending to speak for us on the left too?

That was a rhetorical question, of course.

Oh. Look. Two. American. Soldiers. Were. Tortured. And. Killed. I. Am. Condemning. The. Islamofascists.

There. Do you think that'll shut her up? Jesus, tens of thousands of deaths (many including torture and beheadings) and of course, let's not forget Gitmo and rendition and Secret CIA prisons and somehow, these two deaths are going to bring my outrage to a breaking point?
