And now the other side

Yesterday I highlighted how a post on Talkleft expressing some regret that it was necessary to kill the pirates produced some rather…interesting comments. Now lets look at the other side of the coin.

Gateway Pundit points to this post at Kos where the Captain of the vessel is derided for his resistance. As the newly re-designed (not bad) GP points out the post is outrageous, but I want to tip my hat to most of the commentators.

The commentators are almost unanimous in their disdain for the post, quite a few are calling for it to come down. Some may in fact agree with the line of argument but think it reflects poorly on liberalism but I prefer to think that these people get it.

This is why I think that a post like this shouldn’t come down. The commentators on this diary do much more credit to the left than the diary does against it. Plus the image in this comment is worth the price of admission.

…well maybe not in FAVOR but in sympathy to the slain pirates. These aren’t my numbers that’s their numbers. That very much explains the coverage of yesterday.

6:43 a.m. The environment is poisoned politically. I don’t see how it will be a burden on the republicans since they don’t have the votes and the democrats do.

6:53 a.m. I’ve never seen a grounder go between two people legs at once. Of course they are Yankees so it makes it sweeter.

6:58 a.m. Honor the Messiah or else Arizona!

7:01 a.m. It’s pretty sad when SNL is the only TV show that actually even pretends to ask Biden if what he said was actually true.

7:06 a.m. The Darwin awards were made for that woman with the bears.

7:08 a.m. Very good point on the image stuff.

7:27 a.m. Instead of talk like a pirate day we need apparently Hug a pirate day.

7:29 a.m. Pat had the best line: “The terrorist’s were misguided when they stuck their head out of the porthole.”

7:31 a.m. The Somalia point is a good one, but China is protecting them due to oil contracts Todd should have mentioned that.

7:33 a.m. Only MSNBC could have asked what if the sailors missed their shots.

8:03 a.m. My mother and aunt are visiting that trumps joe.
