Thanks to dglenn for his link to this delicious meta-rant about the principle of outrage from a few months ago. It's not long, and well worth reading; personally, I find it a refreshing tonic.  Just a taste, from the end:

"Smart, informed outrage engages you and fires your heart, your mind. It is fuel. It is the reason you claim you enjoy being an American, to question malevolent government actions and take a stand and demand accountability where there has, for the past seven years, been none. Bottom line: We simply cannot let them convince us, by way of an all-out assault on science, sex, love, et al, that the good fight just ain't worth fighting."
