Never Batted an Eye?

Morgan's excellent post on Progressives behaving like bad husbands aside, this particular part of the Wrong Wreverend Wright's tirade is just nakedly wrong.

"We bombed Hiroshima, we bombed Nagasaki and we nuked far more than the thousands in New York and the Pentagon, and we never batted an eye."

--"Rev" Wright

There was lots of eye-batting before, during, and ever since. Everyone acknowledges how horrific it was. It was a painful decision that Truman and others agonized over. A tough decision between evils that he made nonetheless. America has never been proud of killing civillians. America not only bats an eye, but winces in pain when she thinks of it.

It's this kind of intellectual dishonesty upon which progressives build their worldview, and hopefully the rot inherent in it will continue to cause it to crumle in the end.
