'Yeah, but look at how many skyscrapers haven't been blown up'

"Just when you thought Arthur Chrenkoff couldn't get any better, he does," comments Justin Logan of the Rightwing Australian blogger's idea for ABC: "He wants Nightline to run a 'Faces of the Still-Standing' featuring the soldiers who haven't been killed as a result of operations in Iraq and Afghanistan." Is anyone else sick of people who aren't American telling Americans how to be better Americans? Australian Rupert Murdoch's Fox, Rev Moon's Washington Times, and others like Chrenkoff. Actually, Memorial Day is ABOUT remembering the dead, numbskull. (JustinLogan)
