Department of stupid questions

Andrew Sullivan is OUTRAGED by the failure of liberal columnists to be sufficiently OUTRAGED by the murder of Dutch filmmaker Theo Van Gogh by Islamic fanatics. Mr. Sullivan asks:

ONE SENTENCE: From Roger Ebert. And a good piece on NPR. That's my summary so far of liberal outrage about the murder of Theo Van Gogh. Do you think if a member of the religious right had killed a Hollywood director they would have managed to say something?"

Well, uh, yeah. I do think the murder of a Hollywood director by a religious right wing whacko would probably get more press in America than the murder of an unknown (to most Americans) Dutch filmmaker in Europe.

(And yes, Mr. Van Gogh's murder was indeed an outrage)
