The Losers Who Would Lead Us

Here, in the wake of last night's speech by President Bush, is the latest form letter to MSM-World from the dhummis at MoveOn. It's nothing more than a recycling of old material left over from their goulish and lame campaign to defeat Dubya in '04. We all know the Stuart Smalley-left's defeatism only too well: everything is falling to pieces, we must cocoon and cocoon now, we need to tell Zarqawi when it's safe to come out of hiding to rampage across Iraq, and doggone it, murderous weasels will like us after our worldwide retreat. Check it out- you'll probably read and hear this nonsense all over the MSM:

Talking Points

It’s time to start responsibly coming home from Iraq.

The president offered nothing new in his speech. No plan. No exit strategy. Nothing.

Iraq is no closer to stability than it was a year ago. Things keep getting worse every week. More than 1,700 Americans have been killed and more than 12,000 wounded.

The U.S. occupation is fueling a growing insurgency. Our presence is exacerbating the problem. There are tens of thousands of insurgents backed by hundreds of thousands of supporters.

We got into this war based on lies – the wrong way. It’s time to get out the right way. The first step is to realize that the Bush policy is out of touch with reality.

We need a real exit plan with a real timeline providing real accountability for our leaders. We need to turn control of the training of Iraqi forces and the rebuilding of Iraq to the international community. And we must renounce permanent military bases in Iraq because that angers the Iraqi people.

Such tripe begs this simple question: says who?

No Good Deed Goes Unpunished by Palestinians

Captain's Quarters observes the Palestinian response to Israeli peace initiatives:

The Israelis agreed to admit a Palestinian woman to their country in order to treat her for severe burns after a kitchen explosion left her scarred and in great pain. What did they get for their compassion and generosity? A suicide bomber -- but fortunately, an incompetent one.

A badly burned Palestinian woman was alternately defiant and tearful Monday after Israeli soldiers caught her trying to enter Israel with 22 pounds of explosives hidden on her body.
The woman, who suffered serious burns on her hands, feet and neck in a kitchen explosion five months ago, had been granted permission to cross into Israel from the Gaza Strip for medical treatment when she raised the suspicion of soldiers at the Erez checkpoint. ...
At the Shikma Prison in Israel's Negev Desert, where the Shin Bet security service allowed Israeli TV reporters to interview her, al-Biss said she was determined to carry out a suicide attack against Israel because of its occupation of the West Bank and Gaza.
"My dream was to be a martyr," she said, adding that she was recruited by the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, a violent offshoot of Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah movement. "I believe in death."

No shame, no conscience, no ethos, just a love of death. It is simply indefensible.

The Downing Street Memo: Real But Irrelevant

My skepticism about the DSM has turned; particularly, the silence of the Blair government on the matter speaks volumes to me, as does the item below: Power Line has a good argument for the authenticity of the Downing Street memo, as well as its irrelevance.

Here's John Hinderaker:

FURTHER UPDATE: Bush and Blair were asked about the DSM during their joint press conference on June 7. Blair seemed to admit the genuineness of the memo:
Q. Thank you, sir. On Iraq, the so-called Downing Street memo from July 2002 says intelligence and facts were being fixed around the policy of removing Saddam through military action. Is this an accurate reflection of what happened? Could both of you respond?
PRIME MINISTER BLAIR: Well, I can respond to that very easily. No, the facts were not being fixed in any shape or form at all. And let me remind you that that memorandum was written before we then went to the United Nations. Now, no one knows more intimately the discussions that we were conducting as two countries at the time than me. And the fact is we decided to go to the United Nations and went through that process, which resulted in the November 2002 United Nations resolution, to give a final chance to Saddam Hussein to comply with international law. He didn't do so. And that was the reason why we had to take military action.
That seems pretty conclusive, doesn't it? "That memorandum" was written before the U.S. and U.K. went to the U.N. If "that memorandum" was a fraud, wouldn't have this been an appropriate time to mention it?

Case closed.

House Dems' Circle Jerk Climaxes In Anti-Israel Hatefest

Senate Democrats scurried to the basement of the Capitol Building to play out a masturbatory mock trial of the Bush White House based on the now apparently "false but accurate" (a la Dan Rather) Downing Street memo. After decorating a small basement conference room in a vain attempt to make the affair look like something other than the farce it was, they got down to their version of business, calling a series of "witnesses", all of whom pronounced President Bush guilty of whatever crimes it is they imagine are described in the evidence burned by Times reporter Michael Smith, or possibly eaten by his dog.

They didn't stop there, however;

The session took an awkward turn when witness Ray McGovern, a former intelligence analyst, declared that the United States went to war in Iraq for oil, Israel and military bases craved by administration "neocons" so "the United States and Israel could dominate that part of the world." He said that Israel should not be considered an ally and that Bush was doing the bidding of Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon.
"Israel is not allowed to be brought up in polite conversation," McGovern said. "The last time I did this, the previous director of Central Intelligence called me anti-Semitic."

Go figure.

McGovern has since been castigated by Democratic party chairman Howard Dean who, having recently described Republicans as a “white, Christian party” and black Republicans as “hotel staff,” lacks both credibility and authority.

Read it all, because this is the left today: now that they can no longer pretend the rest of America shares their frenzied hatred of George W. Bush, they have taken to elaborately pretending that they can impeach him. We are talking about supposedly responsible peoples' representatives here. What's next from House Democrats-- a mock execution?

The Real Thing

This is the real thing:
God forbid, if something happens to me over here, I do not want to be used by the likes of Phil Hansen in Seattle, Michael Moore, Gary Trudeau, or Ted Koppel, to make their political points against the war, the President, and finally the country, all the while saying "they support the troops".

In other words, he doesn't want his service to his country to be coat-tailed by a leftist weasel.

Sounds fair to me.


Leading Idiots

Markos Moulitsas “Screw Them” Zuniga earned notoriety and, amongst idiots, fame by stating that he had no problem with four of his American countrymen being burned alive by Islamists, torn apart and eviscerated, their remains hung from a bridge in Fallujah. Now the other shoe has dropped: Markos Moulitsas “Screw Them” Zuniga is against the torture he feverishly imagines (and in my opinion he and his inmates actually hope) is taking place at Gitmo. "Well", an undoubtedly akimbo Markos Moulitsas “Screw Them” Zuniga intones, "I stand with (Senator DICK, and I do mean DICK,) Durbin. Proudly. Because opposing torture is the Right Thing." Unless it means torturing American contractors to a hellish, monstrous demise in front of the entire planet. Those guys can Screw Themselves.

Whilst professing to support the troops (nothing about their commitment to carry out The President's mission to free Iraq, of course), Markos Moulitsas “Screw Them” Zuniga's actual practice is apparently to first accuse them of atrocities, followed by libeling their supporters and then rollin' it all home by pretending to defend their honour. "And we'll do it by shedding crocodile tears for the troops", he mocks, lost in a moment of raw projection. Now, the only thing worse than a hypocrite is a weasel, and Markos Moulitsas “Screw Them” Zuniga is in my opinion The Grand Weasel of the left. Thankfully, his website enables the sane world to keep track of all the little weasels living among us.

Man, I love this guy.

UPDATE: Newt Gingrich weighs in with this letter demanding Durbin's censure.
