Yesterday on The Daily Show, Charles Krauthammer was shown claiming on Faux News that the humanitarian flotilla that was attacked by Israel whilst en route to Gaza had no purpose because (paraphrasing from memory) “there’s no crisis in Gaza” and “no-one there is starving”. At which point Jon Stewart aired footage of the devastation and suffering there and remarked, “If you can’t see the suffering there, your heart is so dead that tourists flock there to float on their backs in it”. And yet, people like that ghoul are folks Sarah Palin wants us to listen to. You know, “2learn other side”. Other side of what, m’dear? Reality? Compassion? Decency?

As always, if you have any story suggestions, feel free to send them in.
