Cuts right through the ‘freedom’ rhetoric, doesn’t it?

Update: Fr Jim Tucker reports that John McCain slipped by saying the carnage is a waste and was slated for it — by the Democrats. The state of course wants to wrap itself blasphemously in religious language and so the PC term is sacrifice.
McCain obliged, saying he should have used the word "sacrificed." Among the sacrifices being made, of course, is McCain's integrity....
That crafty spinning of terms has been around at least as long as men with fancy hats and grandiose titles have been sending men without hats or titles to die for their causes.
