On watching the RNC

As I watched Fred Thompson go through the story of John McCain's time as a POW I was struck most by the audience shots. The same people with tears running down their faces are the same hooting troglodytes that are first to the barricades anytime anyone has the temerity to insinuate that our military should stop torturing the prisoners in our military prisons.

And their faces betray no trace of appreciation of the irony. If it wasn't the very definition of the word tragic, it would be funny.
