August sums it Up about Right

Following up on what Avedon posted earlier. August Pollak sums up my feelings on the cutesy phraseology the right-wing brigade is using about the Newsweek piece.

So now there's a bunch of right-wingers who are pitching the desecrated Koran riot story with the line "Newsweek Lied, People Died."

Get it? It's funny, because it's making fun of what all the anti-war people said when 1,700 Americans were killed based on lies they were warned about but didn't listen to. What, don't you have a fucking sense of humor?

This isn't even not caring. It's beyond not caring. It's taking pride in not caring.
