Greedy Blog

In all the stuff I've read on both sides, I'm surprised that I haven't seen this piece of analysis in criticism from the right or justification from the left: Why does it matter that he was a blind quadriplegic? Does this make him less of a man, and thus less worthy of killing? I see absolutely no reason to include these facts in any piece about his death.
This is like saying that Steven Hawking thinks pretty good, for a guy in a wheelchair. Usually, his theories would be dismissed. However, since he is in a wheelchair, everyone should sit up and take note.
If this isn't the definition of anti-PC handicappism (looking for something akin to racism), I don't know what is. Funny how it comes from the left.

UPDATE: This is one reason I read Tim Blair.
