What I Said....Only Better

In my "Still Seething" post I wrote how I was puzzled that Democrats hadn't figured out that it is time to reconsider their stance on the war. Matt Stoller at Mydd.com gets my point across for me.

"That's how John Murtha talks. He never says he's against the war, he says that having American troops in that region is making things worse. And that's based on the facts that he got, from the military.
Don't wear your anti-war attitude on your sleave; it's a pragmatic thing. Then when right-wingers say that they are for the war, they will look like mindless ideologues."


One point Dems also need to get across is that we aren't going to continue to run the war just to boost the self esteem of our soldiers fighting in Iraq. We have to stop letting the Preznut and his wingnuts push this idea that our dissent is demoralizing the troops. Do you think the Preznut is worried about the self esteem of workers in any other industry in America? Do you think Bush and Congress worried about the self esteem of Textile workers when they pushed Cafta through? Of course they didn't.

I am proud of our soldiers and when we bring them home we will make sure they know that any failures or perceived failures in Iraq were not their fault. Since Bushie is so worried about their self esteem we will make sure the troops know that any failures rest firmly on the shoulders of the Preznut, The Vice Preznut, Rumsfeld and the rest of the war cabal in Washington.

I agree, agree, agree. The Republicans have been absolutely effective at convincing people that all liberals hold the views of the most extreme left. I've been reading Michelle Malkin's blog lately and that's her entire schtick.

There are positive signs, though. (Like this blog!)

Thank you. I'm impressed you are able to read more than a sentence of Malkin. I assume you are doing so on an empty stomach?
