    Except, I'm not really being too hyperbolic on this either. Moral relativity is something the righteous are supposed to be against I thought? No wonder it's so dark outside here all the time.

    Who better than a man using Shinola on his eyebrows to give us moral instruction?

    I thought Cal got all his inspiration from the Bible. Guess God wasn't as clear on torture, though Job may beg to differ.

    Is he running for office?

    Has Pat Robertson endorsed him?

    Alice in Wonderland time.

    Yup, Cal Thomas and Alan Derschowitz are intellectual lightweights when compared to the likes of Fenian.They couldn't possibly have an informed opinion.

    I'll bet Chertoff hosts regular "24" watching parties during the season.

    Don't forget to bring the freedom fries, Dick!

    Can someone older than me explain when Thomas was relevant? Was he ever relevant? His columns read like they originally ran next to a Walter Winchell gossip column from the early 50s.

    Sorry, o_t, Cal's position is morally and intellectually incoherent on its own merits.

    Given the subject, the snarkiness and the use of Times-inspired headline capitalization rules, I would have bet every nickel I own (all four of them) that Fenian would have started this thread.

    I think all the Grecian Formula for Eyebrows fumes have gone to Cal's head.

    No, but they could have an uniformed opinion--which they do.
