The so-called liberal media has been on the attack recently because Jonathan Edwards hired a couple of bloggers who once wrote nastily about religion. That's a fine thing to fret about, I suppose, now that the war in Iraq is over, and our dependency on foreign oil has been eliminated, but I need to ask why the fretting is so one-sided.
As Media Matters reports, Mitt Romney announced his candidacy for the Republican party's nomination at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan. Yup, the very same Henry Ford who received a Grand Service Cross of the Supreme Order of the German Eagle from Adolf Hitler. The liberal media, so far, has largely given Romney a pass.
I'm prepared to concede that both stories are irrelevant, and tell us nothing about the candidates or their real views. I don't think Romney is an anti-Semite, any more than I think Edwards approves of people who insult religion. Still, if you're going to insist that Edward's choice reflects poorly on his judgement, what does Romney's choice say about him?
