You may think that you have felt dumb before, but let me tell you something: until you have stood in front of a man who knows real pain and told him that you are against your country’s alleviation of his country’s state-sponsored murderous suffering, you have not felt truly, deeply, like a total fucking moron.

I don’t mind that he doesn’t like Bush, or thinks Rove is evil (a ridiculous notion, but one that Rove himself thrives on), I just don’t understand why, even in the name of fairness, you can look at “well-fed and intentionally scruffy” protesters who are “legitimately angry” and weigh them equally against the actual Iraqis he met and interviewed and photographed and who told him their stories, horrible stories.
