Big Time Smackdown

Rep. Murtha in his tirade calling for an immediate withdrawal from Mess-o-potamia:
Seldom overtly political, Murtha uncharacteristically responded to Vice President Dick Cheney's comments this week that Democrats were spouting 'one of the most dishonest and reprehensible charges' about the Bush administration's use of intelligence before the war.

'I like guys who've never been there that criticize us who've been there. I like that. I like guys who got five deferments and never been there and send people to war, and then don't like to hear suggestions about what needs to be done,' Murtha said.

Referring to Bush, Murtha added, 'I resent the fact, on Veterans Day, he criticized Democrats for criticizing them.'
Yes, let's remind everyone what a pucilanimous chicken-hawk Big Time really is.

Then, we have former top spook Adm. Stansfield Turner yesterday:
The accusations have been made by Admiral Stansfield Turner who labelled Dick Cheney "a vice president for torture".

He said: "We have crossed the line into dangerous territory".

The American Senate says torture should be banned - whatever the justification. But President Bush has threatened to veto the ruling.

The former spymaster claims Mr Bush is not telling the truth when he says that torture is not a method used by the US.

Speaking of Bush's claims that the US does not use torture, Admiral Turner, who ran the CIA from 1977 to 1981, said: "I do not believe him".

On Dick Cheney he said "I'm embarrassed the United States has a vice president for torture."

Admiral Turner's remarks were echoed by Republican Senator John McCain, himself a victim of torture in Vietnam.

He said torturing to get information was immoral, was not effective and encouraged potential enemies to do the same.
I can only hope that Dimwit and de Sade keep up their attacks, because they are backfiring. The VP for torture is sputtering vitriol at those who would dare to accuse the administration of lying in the run up to war, calling them un-American and unpatriotic. Unfortunately for him, his venomous spittle is sprayed in the direction of a majority of Americans, some 57% who now believe that the administration intentionally lied to them in the run-up to war. Keep it up, Dick. You're doing a heck-uv-a-job at alienating yourself to the country.

The MSM is no longer your sock puppet. Last night, on Anderson Cooper 360, for the second night in a row, Anderson skewered the Bu$hCo clownshow. He called "liar, liar, pants on fire" to Dubya's claim that the Democrats in the House and Senate received the same intelligence as the war criminals in the administration... NOT! Only eight members of congress saw the unclassified NIE, the one that contained all of the footnotes that suggested that the intelligence, that was blown out of all proportion by the administration hacks on the Sunday talk shows, might be flawed. What's worse is that the Dems who did manage to receive the "same intelligence" voted against giving the war criminals authority to use force against Iraq.

Finally, with the bombshell dropped by Woodward this week, the CIA leak investigation and its focus on the lies that lead us to war is once again frontpage news. We now learn that Fitzgerald intends to present Woodward's deposition to a new grand jury... that can't be good news for the members of the WHIG.

I'm looking forward to the day when "our long national nightmare is over". There's finally light at the end of the tunnel.
