Liberal Badge Of Courage...

... is bestowed upon your friend and mine, Alan Dershowitz. It seems that all that is needed to receive such an honor is to trash a deceased Supreme Court Chief Justice before said Justice is even buried.

Some of my favorite comments from the post over at HuffPo:

Mr. Dershowitz - Thanks for your clear thinking and your spine.

Thank you, Alan, for the courage to speak out. God bless you.

Frankly , Alan, you've done a great mitzvah for everyone who reads this exposee of a tyrant. May he rest in peace - after atonement.

And my personal fave:

I suspect that Rehnquist is now arguing his case before Satan.

Let's review:

cour-age n. The state or quality of mind or spirit that enables one to face danger, fear, or vicissitudes with self-possession, confidence, and resolution; bravery.

What exactly was courageous in Dershowitz's commentary? Is he now in danger of being "silenced" by the CIA (a la Mayor Nagin)? Will he be carted off to some internment camp for overzealous liberals for "speaking the truth"? I doubt it. Nor should he. He has every right to say whatever he wants about whoever he wants.

These are voices of our "compassionate" counterparts across the aisle. And yet, time and time again, I am floored with the hate and vitriol they so easily spew. A Chief Justice has died. At least wait until Rehnquist is buried.

As a matter of respect.
