192. So you've dropped the pretense
that the moderator's announcement was aimed at "thoughtful criticism." I guess that's some form of progress.

If you imagine that I was or am "unfazed" by Snow and other Bush apologists, you've plainly not read much of what I've written here. The fact that I disliked Snow as a public figure, however, doesn't mean I consider it's all right to mock his illness or his death.

I'll put this as simply as possible -- For years now, I have written about the far right, particularly the disgusting habit that Freepers and others like them have of mocking the personal tragedies of liberals. I spoke out about it when they did it to Paul Wellstone, when they did it to Cindy Sheehan, when they did it to Marla Ruzicka and Andy Stephenson. I'm not going to hypocritically stay silent when I see liberals mocking the personal tragedies of right wingers, even right wingers I dislike.
