And very few of these PNACers ever suited up and actually went to war for their country

that they supposedly are more patriotic about than either you or I are.

These are part of the "YOU First!" crowd. If they want more war so badly, let them sign up, suit up, and ship out - FIRST. Let them really BE the "leaders" they so loudly claim they are.

OMG! "Y'all-Qaeda"? You're spot-on about that one, too!


I am SO stealing that one!


Needs - and very well deserves - to be Said, Read, and SPREAD!

Excellent post, Florencenj2point0!

Good stuff! Kicked, rec'd, and bookmarked!

Thanks for the Kos reference, too. A keeper for sure!

Dayum - you make me think back to the hapless, pathetic April Ryan after the Iraq War started.

She was in the White House Press Corpse at the news conference the next morning. Amidst the protests and the lobbying WE all did on this side of that miserable mess, and the controversy about it, what does she ask bush when he calls on her? "Mr. President, how does your faith serve you?" And this hideously most godless of all Presidents in American history began to pontificate about all kinds of vague religion-based bullshit. Our kids are being sent over there to get their legs blown off, and April Ryan asks that dry-drunk jerk how his faith serves him. UN-FUCKING-BELIEVABLE. What a disgrace. Of all questions...

I cannot see her to this very day and not remember that. What a bullshit. What absolute horse-hockey. Pathetic and utterly disgraceful!

So did I!

Been agitating about this for some time now. Two of the WORST-EVER Democratic election losses in recent history have happened on HER watch. 2014 of course, and more critically, 2010 - in which the teabaggers got their big launch and they've never looked back from that, either. And what did she do about it? NOTHING.

Where is Howard Dean when we need him?

And mine!!!

Fuck 'em.

That's all I've got for the "republicans were quick to take umbrage..." Hell, they take umbrage to everything and anything that doesn't conform to their narrow views. Fuck 'em!

Just Fuck 'em.

Dayum - you're on a roll, MynameisBlarney!

I like your "Talibangelicals" term too!

EXCELLENT!!! I like your thinking!

Well, there is this...

From the handy dandy CON rag, the national review:


Same piece-of-shit outfit that, during the 90s, featured john derbyshire's article exhorting the murder of the then-teenaged Chelsea Clinton because she might grow up and get into politics, extending the Clinton legacy.

Glad the Clinton campaign people were on the ball, and on their toes. I would hope EVERYBODY on our side, from the Sanders, O'Malley, and even Webb campaigns stays sharp about this. These jerks WILL be back. They WILL try again. In any and many other ways - as many as theyThey WILL stop at nothing. Take that to the bank. I'm kind of surprised at the Planned Parenthood people for being gullible and letting their guard down, and getting played like that. Were they all living on some other planet for the past few years or something??? They of ALL people should have been wary as hell. ANYONE involved in women's health and reproductive health matters needs to be vigilant as can be.

As Mad-Eye Moody always warned Harry Potter - "CONSTANT VIGILANCE!!!!!!!"
