There is some very weird liberal opinion on display in this week's Newsweek. Which is goofier?
A) Cindy Sheehan interviewed by Newsweek in the "Fast Chat":
But the peace movement in the U.S. remains small. Why? One thing that has prevented the peace movement in America is the media. I spoke with 5,000 people in North Carolina on March 19, 2005, and the press called the protest "insignificant." They covered the Terri Schiavo case instead.
You feel like you were mistreated by the press? They got hold of everything I've ever said and scrutinized it so carefully. They never scrutinized what Bush said...
B) Newsweek columnist Anna Quindlen on Christmas, and how the Christmas story has survived for millennia, despite some idiotic Christians of the conservative variety: "Horrific wrongdoing by the people who embraced the story has not been able to kill it: the Inquisition, the Holocaust." I somehow doubt that the Nazis can be cast persuasively as fervent conservative Christians.
