Know Your Target Audience
Andrew Sullivan posts this quote from an al Sadr supporter that must tie the left in knots. Describing his time in jail:
"They knew this would humiliate us. We are men. It's OK if they beat me. Beating don't hurt us, it's just a blow. But no one would want their manhood to be shattered. They wanted us to feel as though we were women, the way women feel, and this is the worst insult, to feel like a woman."
Um, OK. We did a bad thing in those prisons and that needs to be fixed immediately, but a little perspective should be in order.
