Then I read this interview with Hugh Hewitt and came to the realization that the LA Times columnist isn't really a traitor either. I had given him too much credit. Joel Stein is a moron who can't put two coherent sentences together. One who doesn't know what he believes.

January 30, 2006 -- SAG'S UNSADDLING NIGHT FOR 'BROKEBACK'
The gay cowboys fell off their horse and "Crashed" at the Screen Actor's Guild Awards last night.
The cast of pre-show favorite "Brokeback Mountain" came away broke, losing the award for ensemble performance to the cast of "Crash," a film about racial tensions in Los Angeles.
Meanwhile, "Brokeback's" two stars, Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal, lost out in individual categories. Ledger was beaten for the best lead actor in a film by Phillip Seymour Hoffman, who portrayed writer Truman Capote in "Capote." (link)
BAGHDAD, Iraq, Jan. 29 — One of the new co-anchors of ABC's evening newscast, Bob Woodruff, and a network cameraman suffered head wounds and other serious injuries on Sunday when a large roadside bomb struck the Iraqi military vehicle carrying them north of the capital.How cold is that?

The injuries represented the latest crisis for a network news division that has been reeling since Peter Jennings, the longtime anchor of "World News Tonight," died of lung cancer in August [my emphasis]. (link)
Shameful. Pathetic and shameful.
