They’re ALL Communists

I've been saying it for a long time but not as well as Laura Hollis. Read her entire post.

Connect the dots, people. It’s not that Jones, Dunn, Sunstein et al were not properly vetted; it’s that they were. It’s not that Obama wasn’t familiar enough with their viewpoints; it’s that he was. These people were not chosen despite their views; they were chosen precisely because their views coincide with Obama’s own. If it walks like a communist, talks like a communist, and espouses state control in the name of “the people” like a communist, it’s a communist.

OK, I was wrong on the Polanski extradition

But forgiveness is still divine. As Jonah Goldberg points out in his column, even if Polanski were totally innocent of the charges against him there would still be the necessity of bringing him back to the US because he fled a charge of which he was convicted and bringing him back preserves the integrity of the rule of law.

I am still disturbed though about the ferocity with which I was attacked when I suggested that his 30+ year-old crime(s) be forgiven. I was particularly disturbed that so many assaulted me with the horrendous details of sexual perversion that attended the crimes. If this behavior were recent or shown to be a pattern with him I would feel differently but I contend that the concept of forgiveness, especially when the danger to the community has passed, is absolute. Christ did not say forgive unless you can't. He said forgive.

And I will be attacked again for this. I don't want to hear the sordid details again, those of you that have committed these to memory have a profound sickness of your own.
