Beyond Satire Indeed

I've often lamented how the sad state of our political climate almost renders satire obsolete and now I have another great example... Glenn Greenwald has a must-read writeup on how Michelle Malkin (who like the entire right-wing blogosphere is blasting McCain, Democrats, and others traitors for standing up to Bush's draconian pro-torture legislation) is now arguing for the right to a fair trial and adherence to international law for terrorist suspects... in Indonesia who are Christian. You have to read this one.

This example perfectly illustrates how the far-right views the war on terror as just a means for a battle between Christianity and Islam... and not really about stopping terrorism at all. We can't get these people out of power fast enough.
