"Why on earth should [the 9mm lynching of Trayvon Martin and the subsequent police cover-up] be a partisan issue, one wonders?"
-- Andrew Sullivan.
Grow the fuck up, Andrew.
And while you're growing up, grow up in this country. In America. In the real America, not the Disneyfied Reaganeque fantasyland that you and just about every other dorm-room Conservative in the world has spent the last 30 years pretending we are.
Grow up in America, Andrew, steeping in our bloody, jeering, racist past from the day you are born and you will learn very quickly that, depending on where you live and who your parents are, you will either soak the racial history of America in as something shameful to be atoned for and transcended, or something patriotic and pure; the noble struggle of great men living in a better America whose godly ideals need to be "conserved" and resurrected.
And if you can't grow up in America, Andrew, then shut the fuck up and listen to your Liberal betters, because only a fop living in an Adamantine bubble of near-psychotic denial about the true nature of the America Conservative movement could possibly wonder why this this has become a "partisan" issue.
