Hey Berkeley! It’s been a while (kind of) since we last took a stand on a politically contentious issue, alienating ourselves from much of red state/middle America. Is this a bad thing? A good thing? Well, that depends on your opinion, but here’s another stand-taking that might get ugly: Berkeley City Council is now thinking of honoring the man who allegedly leaked the first set of documents.

The Council will vote on Tuesday of next week on “a resolution to honor” Pfc. Bradley Manning, the guy suspected to be behind many of the leaks (including the leak of a video of a US bomb strike on civilians). It was drafted by City Peace and Justice Commissioner Bob Meola who told the AP that Manning should get a medal.

Unsurprisingly, Fox News has already weighed in on the issue with the classy headline “Berkeley Gives America the Middle Finger.” The headline is followed by a picture of a giant flag, in case you didn’t already get the extreme subtlety of their message.

We would wager a good amount of our freedom that this issue is going to get a lot of hackles up on both sides. So how about it, Clog fans? Whaddya think?
