When I think of how morally depraved and deprived so many of my fellow citizens are, I mourn.
Weren’t you people awake in civics class, when we all learned that everyone is innocent until proven guilty? That everyone—now matter how much we hate them—is entitled to a fair trial? That assassinating those we hate is an act of lawless thuggery?
The OBL rubout is an impeachable, prosecutable offense, not to mention an act of war (against Pakistan). But here’s how depraved we are—Obama is using it as a campaign talking point.
(And yeah, I know OBL was a bad guy. That’s why he needed a trial, duh.)
