Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Dems take exception to Bush’s remarks in Israel

Here are Bush’s words:

“Some seem to believe we should negotiate with terrorists and radicals, as if some ingenious argument will persuade them they have been wrong all along,” the President said to the country’s legislative body, “We have heard this foolish delusion before. As Nazi tanks crossed into Poland in 1939, an American senator declared: ‘Lord, if only I could have talked to Hitler, all of this might have been avoided.’ We have an obligation to call this what it is –- the false comfort of appeasement, which has been repeatedly discredited by history.”

The Dems’ reactions?

In a statement, Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., shot across the bow: “It is sad that President Bush would use a speech to the Knesset on the 6Oth anniversary of Israel’s independence to launch a false political attack. It is time to turn the page on eight years of policies that have strengthened Iran and failed to secure America or our ally Israel. Instead of tough talk and no action, we need to do what Kennedy, Nixon and Reagan did and use all elements of American power — including tough, principled, and direct diplomacy – to pressure countries like Iran and Syria. George Bush knows that I have never supported engagement with terrorists, and the President’s extraordinary politicization of foreign policy and the politics of fear do nothing to secure the American people or our stalwart ally Israel.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Cali., did not take kindly to the remarks calling Bush’s statement “beneath the dignity of the office of the president” in her weekly press conference on Capitol Hill.

Pelosi alluded that presumptive Republican nominee Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., should distance himself from Bush’s assertions in Israel, repeatedly saying “any sensible person” would.  (Really?  Any “sensible person” would negotiate with terrorists?  Got it.  Thanks for the clarification. – Ed.)

Wow, they sure are getting defensive!  I mean, Bush didn’t mention any names, nor any office names (i.e. he didn’t say “the Senator from IL” or “House Speaker”).  By the way the left is reacting, it’s as if they disagree with Bush and feel that it is indeed responsible to negotiate with terrorists.  Otherwise, why get your burqas in a bunch, liberals?

Taliban big cheese killed in infidel air strike

Fourteen Tallywhackers…er, Taliban…died from Oedipus Complex issues and American missiles.  But mostly American missiles.  From a fellow infidel:

A Taliban spokesman says the house of Taliban leader Maulvi Ubaidullah was targeted in a suspected US missile strike; at least 14 dead.

Villager Ibrahim Khan said local Taliban leaders had gathered for a feast at the targeted house, and at least 15 people were killed. 

My muckrakers “invesitgative in-the-field journalists” from the Crush Liberalism Objective World News Service (CLOWNS) were able to make up out of whole cloth transcribe the final festive moments before Ubaid-bom-ba-ba-bom-a-dang-a-dang-dang-a-ding-a-dong-ding-doo-Blue-Moon was dispatched to greet his 72 grapes:

Ubaidallah:  Ibrahim, pass the goat.

Ibrahim:  Here you go.

Ubaidallah: No, not the live goat!  The one on the silver platter at the end of the table!

Ibrahim:  Sorry, man.  I thought you were ready to satisfy your loins.  I thought it odd to do that at the dinner table, but hey…different strokes for different folks.

Ubaidallah:  Anywho, never mind that.  I propose a toast!  To Ahmed, who risked capture by the infidel forces so he could do Allah’s work and blow up that girl’s school across the canyon.  Salut!

Ahmed:  You’re too kind, my friends.  Fortunately, I was able to wash off the blood from those seven-year-olds before the feast tonight.  I got my monthly bath out of the way, too, so there’s that.

Ubaidallah:  Excellent! You always were the clever…(pauses)  Did you guys hear something?

Ahmed:  It may have been my stomach.  I ate a bit too much couscous for lunch, and my gut’s been rumbling ever since.  But worry not, for I still have room for the goat and falafel on the plate in front of…

Ubaidallah:  Shhhhhhh!  I’m serious, brethren!  Don’t you hear something?

Yasser:  OK, fine, I farted!  Geez, you have impeccable hearing.

Ubaidallah:  No, that’s not it! (pauses, looks out the window)  Hey, why are all of the villagers running into their huts?

Mahmoud:  Isn’t “American Infidel” on TV right now?  Man, that Sanjaya sure can belt out…

Ubaidallah:  No, that’s not it!  I could have sworn I heard a…(pauses)  Aw, sh…KABOOM!

At this point, the transcript ends, but I think CLOWNS did a wonderful job bringing the final moments for Ubeedoobie and his pals to you.

Surreal moment of the day

File this under “WTF?”, OK?  From NewsMax:

Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager Terry McAuliffe called the media’s coverage of the Democratic presidential race “the most biased” ever — and praised conservative Fox News for its “responsible” reporting.

Appearing on “Fox and Friends” on Tuesday, the former Democratic National Committee chairman was asked by host Steve Doocy “what percentage of the mainstream media is in the tank for Barack Obama?”

McAuliffe answered: “Oh, 90 percent. I mean, from day one. It is what it is. We’re not complaining. We have to deal with the hand we’re dealt…

“Every independent study has said that this is the most biased coverage they have ever seen in a presidential campaign. Clearly it has been a biased media, no question about it.”

He added: “I have said this — Fox has been one of the most responsible in this presidential campaign. I have said that all along.”

Did any of you think you would ever see the day where the Clintons and their surrogates (a) complained about media bias against them, and (b) sang the praises of Fox News?  The former makes me laugh louder than Hilldawg’s forced cackles, but the latter makes me wonder what the Clintonistas are up to.

In related news, Hell freezes over.

NYT mag: McCain “sealed away” from Nam’s lessons

Oh. My. Freakin’. Gawd.  From the Old Gray Hag’s magazine:

There is a feeling among some of McCain’s fellow veterans that his break with them on Iraq can be traced, at least partly, to his markedly different experience in Vietnam. McCain’s comrades in the Senate will not talk about this publicly. They are wary of seeming to denigrate McCain’s service, marked by his legendary endurance in a Hanoi prison camp, when in fact they remain, to this day, in awe of it. And yet in private discussions with friends and colleagues, some of them have pointed out that McCain, who was shot down and captured in 1967, spent the worst and most costly years of the war sealed away, both from the rice paddies of Indochina and from the outside world. During those years, McCain did not share the disillusioning and morally jarring experiences of soldiers like Kerry, Webb and Hagel, who found themselves unable to recognize their enemy in the confusion of the jungle…

Yeah, he must have stayed at a real Hilton during Vietnam, never having been up close and personal with the enemy as they were pulling his teeth out by the roots, sticking bamboo shoots under his nails, and breaking individual bones in his body.  Why, we should all feel so “insulated” from reality, right?

News flash, you morons at the NYT: the reason he appeared to be “sealed away…from the outside world” is because he was sealed away from the outside world…in a freakin’ torture chamber!  Yet this news piece implies that Jean-Francois Heinz-Kerry, whose shooting of a rice paddy and getting some of the resulting shrapnel lodged in his butt (resulting in an early discharge), is somehow more in tuned with the realities of war than being tortured for over half a decade?  Color me with the unconvinced crayon.

Nope…no liberal media bias!
