Rightwing can't handle the truth

Rightwing bloggers are frothing at this year's Pulitzer winners for photography as some of the Iraq photos were more gruesome than your typical newscast. Athenae, addressing pro-war bloggers, writes: "Guess what? Freedom isn't free. You're awfully fond of that slogan, aren't you? Freedom isn't free. So why aren't you using these photos in your 'support the troops' rallies? Why aren't you using them to remind us all what a solemn and glorified endeavor this war really is? Why do you so hate to look at the thing you profess to love?" (First Draft via TBogg)
