Walsh, frequent contributor to Counterpunch.org, discusses the Left’s outrage about Sarah Palin’s virtual cross hairs (in the wake of the Tucson shootings) and near-silence about the real cross hairs of helicopter gunships and Predator drones killing civilians overseas; the American reverence of government officials, especially in death, and the popular belief in the righteousness of state-sanctioned murder; the spectacle of Obama being cheered like a rock star while delivering his eulogy in Tucson; and the collection of antiwar writing from across the political spectrum in the book ComeHomeAmerica.
