I am amazed that the Times is using military casualties to build a potential toehold for the Kerry campaign.
The Times isn't the only one. Here's an email I got from one Daniel Burosh, who opposes the war, in connection with a recent bombing in Iraq:
I Guess the baby soldier body parts flew just EVERYWHERE! Imagine the game:
"Look Abdul, I found an arm!"
"Here's a couple of ears!"
"Gee, Mustafa. I think a found a scrotum, and the ball are still inside!"
Hoo-ray! 985 and counting... When it hits 1000, my friends and I are going to PAR-TAY!
I get a steady flow of emails along these lines. Rooting for American soldiers to die strikes me as a poor strategy for the anti-Bush forces.
UPDATE: Further thoughts here.
