Why Does Evil Make Liberals Stupid? | Power Line:
I happened to touch on the main column covered by PL in this blog.
This is worth a read. The point that PL does NOT make here is that if the bombers had turned out to be in ANY way "right wing", or even if they had just been nuts, and opened up with an AK-47 at the finish line the inability to deal with evil and thus the fall to incoherency would not have happened.
If the bombing had in any way been "right wing", **EVIL**!!!!!! would be shouted from the rooftops and COMPLETELY connected with "Fox News, Talk Radio, Conservative Bloggers, Republicans, the NRA, Christians hating gay marriage, etc, etc" ... now? There is just no way for a liberal to understand the complexity of it all.
In fact, as we saw in both the bombing and ricin case, the MSM could barely contain their hopeful rage in either case that it WOULD turn out to be "right wing". They MUCH more enjoy being able to pound on what they see as the SOLE source of evil in the world, rather than having to drift into inconsolable incoherency in defense of the indefensible.
