OpinionJournal's 'Best of the Web' for 16 May 2007

The editors over at do a great job of pulling together a great sampling of news, reviews, and quips from across the Interweb with their "Best of the Web Today" column, and today's entry is no different.

I would like to focus on one portion in specific, although it is all quite enlightening. The fourth topic down the list talks about the death of Moral Majority founder Jerry Falwell, and the unbridled hate that he inspired in the liberal left.

Here is just one of the examples of the irrational hatred that littered the internet today:
"tzs," on Marcotte's blog: "If Mr. Falwell had not used his life to spew hatred at anyone who did not fit his narrow-minded, bigoted idea of who was a True God-fearing American™, one might feel more willing to refrain from stating what an absolutely putrid little excrescence of vomit he was. But I'm being polite, so I won't say that. R.I.P., and after watching Falwell I know know why the Romans threw the Christians to the lions."
WTF? Did Mr Falwell stab this dude's puppy with a screwdriver? Falwell was a relatively polarizing public figure, but, I mean, c'mon, was there some personal conflict here that was left unresolved since college? I don't think so, based on the wealth of similar mindless comments listed.

This is just one more example of how the "enlightened" and "open" and "caring" and "nonjudgmental" liberal Democrat party and their apparent base are really just a bunch of hate mongering hypocrites.

Definitely check out what Porn-Icon Larry Flynt had to say though.

Umm, I don't think you can generalize this to the entire democratic party. Remember, some of these comments are being made by republicans too.
