Reading a column like Michael Daly's makes one realize that it is next-to impossible to parody the left anymore. As you will recall, one Nick Minucci was sentenced to 15 years for beating Glenn Moore with a baseball bat. Minucci was also convicted of a hate crime for using the N-word during the attack. Here is Daly's take on the sentencing:
Glenn Moore has at times played a bit part in this city's troubles and he does not dispute he was up to no good the night Nick Minucci beat him with a baseball bat while uttering a racial epithet.
But, when he stepped up to speak at his assailant's sentencing yesterday, Moore proved he also harbors a small yet precious piece of our city's greatness.
At the same time, Moore taught an important lesson to those of us who tend to divide the world into good guys and bad guys.
