A lot of nasty stuff is happening in the world these days: war, poverty, terrorism, racism, and the collapse of the housing market, to name just a few.
And yet Mitt Romney, the pretty boy among Republican presidential candidates, has time to fret about the cartoon violence in video games and other forms of media. Okay, he's entitled to his view. But his view looks hypocritical - even bizarre - when you consider the fact that real-world torture is okay with Mitt.
If you caught the recent CNN/YouTube Republican debate, you saw Romney refuse to condemn the use of waterboarding as an interrogation technique. Now, waterboarding is acknowledged as a form of torture all over the world, except for two places: the Bush White House and Romney campaign headquarters.
