140. Good Victims, Bad Victims

That’s the way things tend to be framed in 2015 America. The left was all over the Planned Parenthood shooting – and Mona recounts her experience discussing it on NPR earlier this week – but when San Bernardino happened, official organs were reluctant to “attribute motive.” Jay notes some basic truths he discovered long ago about gun control.

The Democrats have painted themselves into quite a corner with their refusal to face the reality of jihadi violence. But then, Republicans may not be able to take advantage of that if they nominate Trump.

Jay and Mona also consider the triumph of p.c. over good sense in the decision to open all combat roles to women.

The closing music is the theme from “The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly” by Ennio Morricone.
