The SwiftBoating of Murtha has begun
The only thing more outrageous than the swift-boating of John Murtha is this that this ridiculous notion of 'the party of patriotism, the military, and national security' continues to be taken seriously.Exactly. Or, as someone in the comments on a post elsewhere put it, "they are not pro-military, they are pro-war... there's a big difference".
I am truly sickened by the way that creeps like Cheney, Rove and Bush besmirch the records of those who served this country when they themselves "had other priorities".
It's amazing that it took these creeps so long to dig something up.
But what really pisses me off is that it has nothing to do whatsoever with the issue at hand.
It is typical Rove-style politics. Attack your enemy with his strength and use that to change the subject.
Frankly, I think that Bush's AWOL status and less than exemplary service in the TANG are now back in play and, as Rove would put it "fair game". Cheney's five, count 'em, five deferments are "fair game". The fact that none of the Bu$hCo war criminals ever served their country is "fair game".
It's all about politics with this administration. I can't wait until their term is ended (with any luck, prematurely).
