Last note before I go to bed is The Nation's David Corn proved on last night's "O'Reilly Factor" on the Fox News Channel what an idiot he can be. Corn actually advocates cash payments to Afghan civilians or their families who have been accidentally hurt or killed by our bombing campaign.

Someone call a doctor, because Corn is obviously suffering from a severe case of Cranial Rectal Impaction.

Corn says that since we have made it clear that our war is not against the Afghan people, but against the Taliban and al Qaeda, that if we accidentally hit civilians then we owe them money.

The fact that our technology enables us to go to extraordinary lengths to prevent the deaths of civilians does not legally or morally obligate us to make payments when something goes wrong.

The @sdutOpinion Editorial pages used to be fairly mainstream conservative. When I applied for a letters editor opening there in the mid-00s, I was asked if there's an editorial I wouldn't write. I replied: a pro-abortion one. 1/

Supreme Court: “The Second Amendment is not a second class right. States can’t use subjective criteria when issuing carry permits.”
California: “But what if we added in illegal viewpoint discrimination, and violated the First Amendment at the same time?”
