Sometimes you just have to laugh at the jackyderm mudslinging.
Let’s just take this apart bit by bit, it’s truly awesome in the magnitude of its hypocrisy.
A Vermont Democrat running for Congress said the Bush administration has “no clear strategy for success” in Iraq and that the “Republican ‘Rubber Stamp Congress’ has failed to do its duty when it comes to the oversight of this administration.”
Well, seems to me all you kids but Russ Feingold rubberstamped the USA PATRIOT Act, and then we got to hear that “extend it, mend it, but not end it” tripe coming out of that jackass Democrat Jane Harmon, with naught but bleating assent coming from everyone but Feingold and the few moderate libertarians in the GOP.
And what about Iraq? Let’s talk about Iraq. Let’s talk about your 2004 candidate voted for the war… and how your likely 2008 candidate voted for it too. Let’s talk about how when Murtha spoke the truth you were all too chickenshit to stand behind him because “OMG THEY MIGHT THINK WE WUB TEH TERARORISTS!”
State Sen. Peter Welch, the fourth congressional candidate this year to deliver the Democratic weekly radio address, said “the American people have had enough and it is long past time to change course.”
We need change! The American people want something different! What that change or difference might be, I have no fucking clue! Howard Dean’s still working that out in committee and the focus groups haven’t weighed in yet! But I fully commit myself to fucking up in a completely new manner if you stoop to electing me!”
“We must ensure that 2006 is a year of significant transition to full Iraqi sovereignty,” Welch said. “We must establish clear benchmarks for the Iraqis to take care of their own country and defend themselves, so that we can transition our troops out and move to fight a smarter war on terrorism — including doing a better job of securing our ports and our borders.”
We need clear benchmarks, dammit! What they are, eh, who knows? I sure as fuck don’t! But we do need them! Oh yeah, and, uh, Bush is polling really bad about the ports deal so I’m gonna kick him in the nuts for that again so it looks like I stand for something!
Yeah, this is just more jackyderm shit. They’re all spouting the same garbage, everywhere you go. Republican Senate contender Pete Ricketts back in my home state of Nebraska waffled on a lot of stuff dealing with the wiretappings when I asked him about it… and Democrat Scott Kleeb boldly declared that healthcare was his top priority… and that he didn’t have a plan, so much, about what needed to be done with it.
Someone fucking stand for something already!
