And We Are Right I Think You'll Say To Argue In This Kind Of Way

Just following up on the wanker, it really is quite amazing how many pundits write columns which basically assert that the columnist has solved the problem for all eternity and that we should all just agree that he is right and we should never broach the subject again. People actually, you know, disagree about stuff. There is no "right" answer on the death penalty in the sense of a Chuck Lane dictated position that all Americans will agree with. Personally, I think empowering the state to kill its own citizens is a rather bad idea. Other people think we should line up everybody who doesn't quite look right and machine gun them, possibly for broadcast after American Idol. No pundit-determined solution is going to please us all no matter how sensibly Broderific it is.
