Wolcott Dismantles the Wingnuts

James Wolcott has a particularly good post on wingnuttery and the sadistic tendencies of those who support the One True Party and all of their evil deeds.
It's no accident that it is the rightwing bloggers and pundits who have been avid about defending the use of torture against suspected terrorists. Nor is it an accident that many of them pooh-poohed Abu Ghraib, sluffing it off as no more harmless than fraternity hazing. But what their decapitation odes reveal is that what they'd really like to do is permit torture closer to home. Domesticate it. Trivialize it. Completely destigmatize it as a tool of the state.
Careful, they may be armed.
