    ... who died in an offroading accident...

    Imagine the self-righteous whining from these folks if a left-leaning publication had fun at the expense of that particular dead scumbag.

    •  There's a death that didn't bother me. (none)
      I probably should be ashamed to admit it but I was glad when Michael Kelly died.  I figured that if anyone had to die in this clusterfuck they called Operation Iraqi Liberation, by rights it should be those who wanted it to happen.  All the liberal Hawks, the entire staff of the New Republic, and of course the lovable neocons and their scruffy little mascot David Brooks.  Yes in my view these are the proper stuffing for transfer tubes.

        In my own opinion yes, I think you should be ashamed.  I strongly and firmly disagree with the liberal hawks and the neocons but I still assume that they had their reasons for supporting this war which somehow, some way, included what they thought were the strategic interests of the United States.  Now, we can have a debate about ideology blinding people to the facts, but to wish them dead for it seems to be.. beyond the pale.

          Daria,

          Right on. Saying something like that makes you no better than the people at LFG. You might not have agreed with Kelly (I didn't) but show some respect. It is this respect that makes liberals what they are - and not like the LGF gang.

          PS - By the way, did you know Sullivan links to that site all the time? I've stopped reading Andy cause he got real predictable, but I think I should point this out, cause others here probably read him.

            since he declared the Governator's serial assaults on women 1) were only an issue of concern to feminists and 2) could not be criticized because some feminists defended Clinton for a consensual affair.  F(*k you Andy, I'll still stand up in support of gay marriage even though you stabbed me in the back there.
