Tempest in the Blogosphere

Jeez, what you can miss in a weekend...
Long story short: Kos made some comments about the contractors who were killed and mutilated in Iraq ("Screw 'em" were part of his exact words), then retracted them. Anyhow, it's caused quite a furor, right-qing bloggers in an uproar about how liberals hate America (Kos especially, what with his having been in the Marines, that breeding ground for anti-Americanism). The usual. The best treatment of the whole thing, and its implications, is here; Kos' response/retraction to the affair is here.

I'll have more on this later.
