Abu Ghreib

Kevin Drum is covering the continuing scandal of Abu Ghreib. I'm heartsick and have little useful to say. kid oakland at Kos had some thought-provoking words about the banality and ubiquity of evil closing with a political call to arms.

People will squeal, of course, about "politicizing" such things. But you know what, sometimes the vote is the only tool we've got. The first step that regular citizens can take is to oust the regime responsible for this madness.

Even so, I don't know how we'll ever recover from all of this.
