Every time I listen to wingnuts talk about family values, I wonder just what kind of fucked up family they come from. We’re used to hearing conservatives talk about the corruption of the American soul, and usually the corruption they are talking about is stuff they just don’t like- women controlling their own bodies, someone saying fuck on a tv show, gay people and brown people breathing, etc. I really did think, though, that at one point, there were a few things we all, from every political persuasion, agreed on. Torture got tossed off that list during the Bush years, and now it appears that conservatives have decided that desecrating corpses (heckuva job, CNN) and urinating on the dead should also be yanked off the list of things we all abhor. I wish I was surprised, but I’m really not. Fortunately, the military still at least is pretending to take this seriously.
And remember- the people defending this are the EXACT same people who wanted you to believe soldiers never told an off color joke in a cafeteria, or ran over a dog, or the other stuff they furiously attacked Beauchamp for a couple years ago.
