PRECIOUS BODILY FLUIDS….First there was Trent Lott putting his foot in his mouth. Then Howard Coble suggested that it was all for the best that Americans of Japanese descent were interned during World War II since it was really for their own safety. Now we have James Moran blaming the upcoming war on a Jewish cabal and Arlon Lindner claiming that homosexuals weren’t persecuted by the Nazis.

I realize that a PhD in history is not required for election to the U.S. congress ? nor even a three-digit IQ for that matter ? but what the hell is going on here? Is it something in the water?

Or is it always like this and it’s just that blogging makes it more obvious?
