Unfortunately, the only disproportionate response we will likely ever see to the recent rash of piracy took place on the Sunday political talk shows.
I'm glad the captain and crew are safe. The Navy Seals are incredible. All of the Navy personnel that responded to the incident deserve recognition.
But Meet The Press, Fox News, and This Week, all featured lengthy discussions about the actual hijacking and the ramifications for US foreign policy. Why?
In fairness to This Week, Rick Warren was supposed to be on, but canceled at the last minute due to the fact that he seems to be going all John Kerry on California's Prop. 8 (he was for it before he was against it, apparently).
I won't bore you with the litany of crises that might, maybe, be a little more important to focus on, but I am sure you can think of one or two on your own.
You know, like what is going on with the Obama dog.
