The 'debate' over all the bad and scary things that will happen if Obama closes Guantanamo and we then incarcerate those detainees in American prisons is so painfully stupid even by the standards of our political discourse that it's hard to put into words ...It meshes nicely with this week's Tom Tomorrow cartoon about how the Repugs can continue to set the terms of debates despite their considerable limitations.
Where oh where is the right-wing version of "Canadian Cynic" or "Sadly, No!" that skewers the brain-dead political culture of lefties? I suspect it doesn't exist because it can't exist. There's no way that there are significant portions of the leftist internet that are as ugly and stupid, so irredeemably stupid, as smalldeadanimals, dustmybroom, freedominion, freerepublic, littlegreenfootballs, nationalreviewonline, redstate, etc., etc.,. (FTR: right-wing circle-jerks about how awesome they are and how "leftards" are stupid, well, just 'cause, don't count.)
We have a lot of work to do to turn the human race off the path to self-annihilation and the fact that moronic drivel like the "terrorists on American soil" debate is allowed to waste our time is testimony to how dangerously far behind we are. These cretins are dangerous for the things they wish to do and for the energy they divert from more worthy causes. They should just shut the fuck up and let the grown-ups get to work.
