Kaus Keeps the Heat on Cele...

Yeah, it's better that we execute people after not 9 days, but after decades. It's so much more just. Oh, and as Yoko and co. ignore Fidel's transgressions, so do the killhappy local Ashcrofts ignore procedural bumblings, updated achievements in forensics, and the PROFOUNDLY RACIST OUTCOMES OF A SUPPOSEDLY NEUTRAL CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM.

It's just great that you focus your (unerpowered) guns on a pathetic asshole - long hectored and harassed by the U.S. - while the world's "only superpower" hectors and harasses the whole world.

That's nice, Skippy.

"OHNO YUO CANT POINT FINGERS AT CASTRO YUO AMERIKKKAN IMPERIALISTS AMERIKKA IZ JUST AS BAD OR WORSE LOL!!!1"

Yes, poor lil' Fidel being picked on all these years. He's just that sad lil' kid getting stomped on by the big bad bully and having his lunch money taken and getting snicker-snagged on.

From the time the U.S. Supreme Court ruled the death penalty constitutional (about 25 years ago), we've executed about 900-1000 convicted murderers. Over that same quarter century, the U.S. has seen more than 500,000 murders.

Personally, I'm against the death penalty for a number of reasons. But no reasonable person, pace our friend Francois above, can argue with any basis that we are reckless in the application of capital punishment.

Isn't it, well, revealing that to the left the U.S. doesn't have the moral stature - our racism, social injustice, poverty, et cetera - to condemn the policies of leftwing regimes such as Castro's.

But the U.S. sure has the standing to condemn the policies of Israel. Somehow, our moral standing and credibility miraculously improves. No more lectures about our own shortcomings and failings.

Hmm, can't imagine why this is so.

Take it to the streets, folks. We're talking about Yoko Ono here, not moral equivalency, whatever that means. Yoko was honored at a show at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art last year. In one room of the exhibit was a telephone that would occasionally ring, and on the other end of the line would be ol' Yoko herself. When asked by a morning radio jock what he would ask Yoko if the phone rang, one caller's response was "How does it feel to have broken up the world's greatest rock'n'roll band ever?" Nuff said.

It's not just the ridiculous Yoko Ono - who cares about her attendance? It's the media moguls, the Redfords, the Gary Harts, the Lowell Weickers, the Barbara Walters, the Speilbergs, the . . . need I go on? The list is lengthy and embarassing.
