Ruining America

Ruining America

Some powerful words on Bush's recent press conference on Iraq. Of course in this day and age of partisan spin-doctoring, culture wars, and internet news where you can find a source to support any nut-job opinion one might hope to possess, well ya gotta ask yourself, "What kind of pinko, un-American, beatnik, granola-eatin', birkenstock-wearin', atheistic, pot-smokin', free-lovin', anarchistic, sexually deviant, conspiracy theorist, would post this kind of tripe?"

The president declared himself confident that Republicans would sweep to victory and maintain their stranglehold on both houses of a Congress that's done nothing but rubberstamp Bush's war policies and Republican efforts to enrich their fat-cat donors and themselves, of course.
If he's right and that's the result of the Nov. 7 elections, then the American people will finally have fulfilled H.L. Mencken's prophecy that we'd continue choosing the lowest common denominator until, in the end, we get precisely the government we deserve. ...
This unseemly circus and its clowns in Congress can't go away fast enough and with enough dishonor and disgrace to suit the circumstances. Their place in America's history is secure: They will go down as the worst administration and the worst Congress we've ever had. Period.
They deserve to lose both the House and the Senate on Nov. 7, and the White House in 2008. They bullied their way into a war that they thought would be a slam-dunk and then so bungled things that the only superpower left in the world has been humbled and hobbled in a world that they've made more dangerous for us.

Noam Chomsky? Amy Goodman? Micheal Moore? Jane Fonda? Hilary Clinton?


It's this guy:

Joseph L. Galloway is the senior military correspondent for Knight Ridder Newspapers and a nationally syndicated columnist. One of America's preeminent war correspondents, with more than four decades as a reporter and writer, he recently concluded an assignment as a special consultant to Gen. Colin Powell at the State Department. Galloway, a native of Refugio, Texas, spent 22 years as a foreign and war correspondent and bureau chief for United Press International, and nearly 20 years as a senior editor and senior writer for U.S. News & World Report magazine. In 1990-1991 Galloway covered Desert Shield/Desert Storm, riding with the 24th Infantry Division (Mech) in the assault into Iraq. General H. Norman Schwarzkopf has called Galloway "The finest combat correspondent of our generation -- a soldier's reporter and a soldier's friend."

And where was it posted? Democracy Now? Indy Media? Socialist Worker?


None other than that hallowed web portal to leftist dissent,

Folks, I urge you to support our troops. Sticking a magnetic yellow ribbon on your SUV, just ain't gonna do it. Vote the rubber-stamping Neo-cons out this November.
