The right-wing P.C. police
...conservatives have become such sensitive souls.
The right used to decry political correctness. They had a point - our culture has become far too sensitive to the possibility that our speech or actions can possibly offend someone, somewhere. Our discourse has become far less colorful and interesting as a result of this fear of offending PC sensibilities.
However, recently the right has become fallen in love with PC as long as it serves their interests. One prime example is conservative whining about the attacks on Christians ...
...The other great Washington PC offence was Senator Durbin's remarks about Gitmo. Clearly, Durbin uttered an unartful and inappropriate analogy. It would be wise to apologize. But the conservative mob surely knows that Durbin was not suggesting that the U.S. military was either the SS or Beria's secret police. They are merely pouncing on Durbin in order to distract us from all the bad news that envelops the GOP.
