Ok, I said I wasn’t going to make political rants on this blog. I lied.
Here are questions that I, as a nominally liberal person, ask myself, and which I don’t like the answers I come up with.
1. Why, after defending Clinton by saying that it doesn’t matter how much of a scumbag he is to his family, that’s between him and his family, are Democrats making such hay over the fact that Arnie is just as much of a scumbag towards his wife?
2. Remember those people from Europe who went to Iraq to be human shields, and left in disgust when Saddam wanted to use them to protect military targets rather than infastructure which wasn’t going to be targetted anyway? Now that pro-Saddam guerillas are attacking infastructure like water and electricity, how many of them have come back to offer their services as human shields? Or just come back to help with the reconstruction?
3. Why am I against the death penalty, but I’m perfectly happy to make exceptions, like the guy who killed Lacy Miller?
