OKAY, I CAN’T RESIST: Contrast the images of Lebanese pro-democracy protesters below with these pro-Syrian demonstrators and, well, it just says it all, doesn’t it?

I mean, talk about being on the wrong side of history. And I think I know which image will sell better on TV, too. I mean, who would you rather hang with?

UPDATE: As The Belmont Club puts it, it’s “a whole new species of ‘cool’.”

ANOTHER UPDATE: Or, on the other side, “murderous losers” sums it up pretty well.
