Since when do we justify our actions based on Nazi atrocities anyway? Should we have taken Germans off the streets and made lampshades out of them also?
Dresden was a holocaust very dissimilar to Hiroshima.

It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
