I did this as a quick blog comment in response to someone on another blog of mine, thought it was blog-worthy:
People politicize everything, even basic morality. A guy got nailed for trying to bug a US senator’s office and CPAC (the big conservative conference where dick cheney, glenn beck and a bunch of congressmen were speakers) gave him an award for it. He’s wanted for at least two felonies in two states, but he committed felonies against democrats so it’s not just okay, but praiseworthy.
Whether torture is moral or immoral is a right-left issue in this country.
