addendum to two of last night's posts

Typical reaction from a leftie when called on the carpet:

"This is being turned into a circus by the right-wing media outlets and fed by right-wing haters," [Sen. Murray's spokesman, Todd] Webster said.

Bullshit. For once I would like to see a left-winger stand up and say "I was wrong," instead of immediately going on the defensive and telling the media "everyone who thinks I was wrong is a poopy head."

Usual leftist crap of resorting to name calling and finger pointing instead of taking responsibility for their actions. Or, god forbid, admitting their actions were less than stellar.

Before you get your panties in a bunch, I understand that these traits are not strictly held by the left, but they seem to have a corner on the market.

Engaging in debate is one thing. Using your "America is to blame for everything" views to bring your brand of propaganda to high school students is reprehensible.

Don't be surprised at my reaction, after all, I am a blogging blowhard.

One more thing, just to piss off Acidman.

Oh, give me money, I am a poor, hungry soul. Feed me, clothe me, bathe me, shower me with your plastic goodness and dirty dollars.

Fuck that. Buy me tequila.

If I buy you tequila will it get me laid?

She just makes it worse. She could have said something like: "I was just trying to point out that OBL uses highly-visible aid as a tactic to gain support, and that we need to think about how to make our aid programs higher-profile so that we get credit for them from the local people." Then this affair would probably have blown over.

Instead, her spokesman accuses those who criticize her of being "right-wing haters."

"Progressives" seem to believe that they should have an inherent immunity to any form of criticism. Expect assaults on free speech and the free press to increase dramatically.

1. I'm a lefty, and I am usually wrong.
2. You left off the "W" in QOTWFI.
3. I'm paid up. Now I want a "I bought Michele a fucking tequila, but she still won't shut up" t-shirt.

Nyah!

p.s. I love you.

Okay. How much do ya need, darlin'? It's yours as long as I get a back scratch out of it.

I think you shouldn't let a few give the entirety a bad name. I stand pretty far to the left and have often voiced an oppinion on you're site. When I'm wrong I'm glad to admit it and I'm all for taking responsibility.
Just because one jack ass is bouting for attention in the public eye by being just that, a jack ass doesn't mean that all of us left siders are bad. That would be like saying all Right wingers are Seperatist Racists who don't have a fucking clue about the way the world works. Is it true about some? Yes, but not all.

If anything all you have succedded at is giving him the attention he wants and pointing yet another finger. Good Job.

For instance, my spelling on the last comment. Completely wrong.

Ummm, as usual, I'll say this:

She had a point. She DID say he was a terrorist. What she was doing was raising the point about why we're not liked in that part of the world, and he is.

What is wrong with that? Is it written somewhere that we're not allowed to voice such opinions?? It's the damned truth, for crying out loud. Hell, we've let Afghanistan return to chaos, haven't we? Taliban and Taliban-like forces are at work again in that country, and women are terrified again. Isn't that fodder for bin Laden and his cronies?

"See? They bomb you, kill you, install a new leader, and leave. We, at least, fed you, built hospitals, etc."

How is what she said untrue? How? Those words are the fucking truth, for crying out loud. Blasting her for saying this to students is ludicrous, and, yes, typical.

David, she did say that, in essence.

Bin Laden may have bought some ‘hearts and minds’ through a few random building projects. Hamas also provides ‘charity’. Serial killer John Wayne Gacy also did some charity work, dressing up as a clown to entertain kids.

If a US Senator had appeared in front of a group of students and said – “We have to ask ourselves, why was John Wayne Gacy such a successful entertainer, and what can he learn from his charitable works?” I, as a parent, would object.

A US Senator should not be encouraging kids to learn from the acts of a mass murderer. A US senator shouldn’t threaten those who disagree with her with the loss of student aid. Any US senator who does that should be criticized by her peers, Republican AND Democrat.

If Patty Murray had told high school students that Afghanistan is a mess and we need to do something about it, that would be true and I would agree. Its in every American’s best interests to improve the situation in Afghanistan. But Patty didn’t do that. She tried to give those kids the impression that Osama is more generous than the US. That isn’t true. She praised a mass murderer while disparaging our government. This is not in our best interests, and we should all, Republican and Democrat, recognize that fact.

Did she praise him? No, she didn't. Look at what she literally said, not at what you think she said.

Then, look at your over-reaction to what happened. She said we need to examine why he's liked and we're not. Not once did she praise his works.

Instead, she highlighted how he's been successful, and we have not.

She said nothing more than that, yet she's being lynched by everyone looking for either revenge for Lott's stupidity, or who aren't willing to read, word for word, what the lady said.

This has nothing to do with political parties or left/right agendas. What she says makes sense.

Unfortunately, for the lot of you, along with the Administration, that point appears to be lost.

This is what Senator Patty had to say about Osama bin Laden’s accomplishments:

“He's been out in these countries for decades, building schools, building roads, building infrastructure, building day care facilities, building health care facilities, and the people are extremely grateful. We haven't done that. “
That sounds like praise to me. And she is claiming that we haven’t ‘done that’, when in fact we have. The senator is wrong, and she is committing a grave sin of omission by neglecting to tell these kids about the horrors that Osama & his followers have inflicted on people around the world.

Here’s what the women of Afghanistan have to say about the loss of their benefactor, bin Laden after the Afghan war: They praised “the fumigation of the Taliban pestilence and their al-Qaeda carriers”

The Afghans openly criticize the US for their support of bin Laden in the past, and their support of the Northern Alliance now. I’d be happy to have those women come to talk to my kids at school. But if Senator Patty Murray was going to speak, I’d have to ask them to skip it – or at least fill them in on all of the facts that Senator Murray conveniently ‘forgot’ to mention.

Sins of omission can cause great harm. If a doctor conveniently forgets to mention a tumor growing on your lymph nodes, that could cause great harm. If a Senator conveniently forgets to tell kids that Osama is a mass murderer who is despised by the people who lived in his ‘ideal’ Islamic state, that could also cause great harm. When she holds him up as an example to emulate, that’s unforgivable.

How in the world has bin Laden contributed SO MUCH to Afghanistan??? Isn't he worth millions or more? YET, after 9/11 when some people were saying "Bomb them back into the stone age", the common reply was "We can't because they're already there".

Ho you people are just plain mean, mean mean!!!

Leave me alone! I can't help it. I was born with a silver tennis shoe in my mouth!!
