"Guys: it's a curved grove of maple trees for God's sake. Get over it," writes Dean Esmay of Dean's World in the first sensible thing we've read -- other than our own brilliant posts here and here -- re the recent hysteria being fomented by a handful of leading lights of the right side of the blogosphere over perceived hidden messages in the plan for the Flight 93 memorial:
So, while I like and respect Michelle Malkin and many of the blogs she links to, I have to say, this entire kerfuffle over a 9/11 memorial that has a red semi-circle in it strikes me as over-the-top, and it seems to me to point to a growing trend of the right to be as shrill and perpetually indignant as the PC mavens most of us grew to hate so much in the 1990s.
Exactly. Whether of the left or or the right, conspiracy theories and evocations of evil forces lurking in the shadows -- reminiscent of medieval witchhunting -- have no place in measured political discourse. It isn't just Hillary anymore.
