It never fails: Some brown or black guy is apprehended and charged with terrorism, and a week later conservative pundits and politicians are upset because the cops didn't go all Jack Bauer on him. They read him his Miranda rights, the wimps! He should have been tortured waterboarded aggressively interrogated!

Don't they understand that what the government can do to anyone, it can do to anyone -- including them? They can't be that stupid. You don't have to be any smarter than Larry Flynt to figure that one out.

Maybe what they know is that while it's theoretically true that one law applies to everyone, it doesn't really apply to them, because they're not brown or black -- or if they are, they've got the middle- or upper-class credentials to overcome that disadvantage.

But that would be so hypocritical, so contemptible. I would rather think they were just stupid.
