The choice in this election is illustrated by the stark contrast between running mates: the religious bullying of Mike Pence, who signed a law requiring funerals for aborted fetuses, versus the humble faith that drove the young Tim Kaine to teach carpentry and welding as a missionary in Honduras.

Muslims, Mass Shootings and the Media

My analysis of the media coverage related to each mass shooting revealed a pattern. For every non-Muslim shooting suspect, the media never mentioned their religion. Moreover, in nearly every case, it was claimed that the mass shooters were suffering from some sort of mental instability.

They're catnip for commentators -- two dynasts announcing within two days. Except the differences far exceed the parallels -- one's a yellow-pad wonk related to a popular ex-POTUS who leads with 60 percent in Democratic polls. The other is a "Jar of Mayo" with 100 percent recognition yet only 10 percent in GOP polls. Lowry and Katrina debate why.

Sunday Roundup

This week, another Bush got caught in an Iraq quagmire with no exit strategy. When Jeb Bush was asked if he'd have authorized invading Iraq knowing what we know now, he replied, "I would have." He continued to flail all week, saying on Wednesday that such "hypotheticals" are a "disservice" to the troops, and on Thursday that he "would not have gone into Iraq." The jaws that rightly dropped in response to his floundering were notably bipartisan. Laura Ingraham declared "there has to be something wrong with you," and Byron York said it was "a step backward" for the GOP. It's shocking that Jeb didn't have a prepared answer to this elephant sitting in the middle of his campaign headquarters, but heartening to see how far establishment thinking has come on Iraq. And given the speed with which Jeb shifted gears, who knows, by next week he might be demanding that those who led us into that disastrous war be held accountable.

Let's be clear, violence committed in the name of religion, racial superiority, ideology or any other form of hatred is evil. Smearing a whole group because of the actions of some who claim membership may not be as evil, but that's an awfully low bar to clear.
