Glenn Greenwald Nails It

Glenn Greenwald's column today in Salon addresses a particularly fatuous quote by right wing loony Thomas Sowell :

We all believe that people are innocent until proven guilty. Some on the left believe that they are innocent even after being proven guilty.

Of course, as Greenwald points out, the wingnuts have no problem believing that people who are merely suspected of terrorist activity are guilty until proven innocent, AND they still insist Scooter Libby is innocent after being found guilty by a jury. Greenwald's explanation of the reason for this mental disconnect is well worth a read.
