Apparently, according to right-wingers, if a news service merely reports that a bombing has taken place in Iraq, or acknowledges a death-toll milestone at all, it's "celebrating."

These people are insane.


And "insane" doesn't even begin to describe the group hysteria on the right in reaction to the technical gaffe that led to the brief appearance of an X on Dick Cheney's face during a live CNN broadcast. There are perfectly rational explanations for this from TV techies (Harry Shearer can point you to some), but the righties have already moved to Level Two -- now they're critiquing one another's enhanced, super-slo-mo downloads of the 1/15th-of-a-second clip. Holy Zapruder! Can an entire Regnery book on this be far behind?
