They're pathetic, creepy and obsessed.
UPDATE: Though I didn't use it in the column I got a kick out of reading that NAMBLA, the North American Man-Boy Love Association, lists among its reasons "Why NAMBLA Matters" this:
"NAMBLA has consistently protested ill advised wars that needlessly maim and kill young people and devastate families here and abroad. Even before it started, NAMBLA warned against the Iraq invasion. Our warning was on our Web site long before many of the politicians, who belatedly recognized their immense error, echoed our concerns."
In other words: Make Love, Not War. Only in their case... to boys.
As they say, politics makes strange bedfellows. And sometimes not so strange.
