Your hammering on this story is simply despicable.  Your limp justifications have no merit.  You obviously don't feel it now, but I hope someday you reflect back on these posts with the appropriate -- significant -- amount of shame.

What really, deeply distresses me is that I've spent the last few years vehemently defending you to my conservative and moderate friends.  I'd always respected what I thought was your deep integrity -- your willingness to view issues honestly and openly, reevaluating as circumstances changed.  Now I see how incredibly wrong I've been, and I'm embarrassed that I've ever spoken a good word on your behalf.

You're disgusting. You've become an ugly, horrible person.

All I can say is: anyone who wanted to play safe would just wait for this to emerge, as it surely will. But I just want to know the truth about this - which can be easily provided. And I stand by my view that the facts as they currently stand - all from mainstream media sources - are very strange. So have at it - make me look like a fool for even bringing this up. And then we can move on. But the job of a blogger is to get facts straight.
