Can you imagine the outrage from the animal rights crowd if a conservative smacked his dog at a Tea Party rally? Front page news right?
So, when the Daily Show drags a poor camel out in the freezing Wisconsin winter to play up the non-existent connection between the Egyptian protests and the illegal union strike in Wisconsin you're probably not too surprised that when the camel suffers a possible injury no one on the left even cares. To the left, the cause is more important than the life of a camel, OR even a human being.
