The Cognitive Dissonance. It Tickles.

How many blogs simultaneously defend Geert Wilders' criticism of Islam (and not just his right to voice that criticism -- but that, too, obviously!), and also mourn the passing of the great historian and humanitarian Howard Zinn, who was one of the most important leftist voices in the English speaking world in the late 20th century and even well into the first decade of the 21st??

Not very freaking many. That's how many.

"If two people agree about everything, one of them is unnecessary."
Oscar Wilde*

*Oh, alright. Maybe it was Winston Churchill, or someone else. But Oscar Wilde obviously should have said it. I mean, anyone can see that, right?
