The need for rationality

Real Clear Politics has this column about the relentless rush to condemn the US military and Bush. I want to focus on one point made at the end, "surely there is also an obligation ... to grant members of the American military the same presumption of innocence afforded petty thieves".

Compare the attitudes of the Free Mumia! types. The US military is always presumed guilty. Those for whom the evidence is beyond dispute that they are cold-blooded murderers, however, deserve every possible presumption of innocence.

The strange "through the looking glass" world of the liberal gets increasingly "curiouser and curiouser" no matter how often one thinks that it couldn't get any more bizarre and twisted than it already is.
