Schaudenfreude Over Ken Lay's Death

Jim Pinkerton had it right on Fox NewsWatch tonight.

Imagine, if you will, the reaction of the far Left if Ann Coulter had suggested delight over the prospect of the prison rape of the likes of Bill Clinton, or Governor Jim Guy Tucker, or Louisiana Congressman Bill Jefferson.

Then compare it to the comments in this Washington Post essay by Henry Allen:
now that he's died of a heart attack in the luxury of his Colorado getaway while awaiting sentencing for his crimes, none of his victims will be able to contemplate that he's locked away in a place that makes the Baltimore Harbor Tunnel look like Hawaii; that he might be spending long nights locked in a cell with a panting tattooed monster named Sumo, a man of strange and constant demands;
Why does this guy still have a job?

Actually, Allen does go on to ask a very good question: "Is it possible that a micron below the surface of our liberal and enlightened beliefs lurks savagery?"

Gee. Ya think?

Actually, Henry, the "surface of [y]our liberal and enlightened beliefs" is nothing more than a fraudulent veneer.
