Mark Steyn is a genius: You can read his latest here, at OpinionJournal.com. It's about doomed Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry.
In his summary of Kerry's faults, (the fact that he's a Massachusetts liberal is at the top) Steyn points out that Kerry is opposed to the death penalty.
Steyn points out the twisted logic Kerry displayed on a recent interview on NBC's "Meet the Press." Kerry repeated his anti-death penalty stand, saying that life in prison was a harsher punishment for convicted criminals.
BUT, there was an exception. Kerry said he was not opposed to executing terrorists, like Osama bin Laden, who attack America.
Think about it.
Kerry would like to give terrorists that attack America a lesser punishment (in his opinion) than he gives your average murderer.
Then again, maybe he really doesn't think that life in prison is a harsher sentence.
