Moonbats and the Military

By

In an August 7th Newsweek piece up at MSNBC.com here, Jonathan Alter points out the potential disaster looming for the Democrats if the loons on the left get their way. The author quotes none other than that oracle of political wisdom Monica Lewinski on the perils of political risk—taking, as a way of introducing his thesis that Joe Lieberman is in trouble with the moonbats because of his aversion to such risk.

As examples of this alleged prediliction, Alter claims that Lieberman's troubles predate the infamous presidential smooch, going back to the 2000 election when as VP candidate, he went easy on Dick Cheney during the vice—presidential debates and then in the hectic aftermath of that election, committed this heinous violation:

'During the Florida recount, he made a point of favoring military absentee ballots likely to be Republican.'

Gasp! Well no wonder the moonbats are flapping! Can you imagine the outrageous nerve of a Democrat, who is aspiring to be next in line as commander in chief of America's armed forces, favoring the inclusion of the ballots of those serving in faraway places to guard the very freedoms that make his election possible?

I said it back then when the Democrats tried to block those military votes and I say it again now: despite all their mouthed pieties about supporting the troops and wanting only the best for our armed forces, a very large segment of the Democratic Party is deeply, inherently anti—military. This antiwar crowd is heads—in—the—sand (actually I think their heads are firmly inserted elsewhere) ignoring history and the ultimate benefits to mankind wrought, albeit painfully, through wars; and with their dumb declaration that 'wars never accomplish anything' they selfishly and callously deny the sacrifices of the troops who fight those wars and buy with blood, sweat and tears the very freedoms these moonbats now exploit in their subversion of our troops in the current conflict.

Every time some leftist starts mouthing platitudes about supporting the troops, someone should (metaphorically) smack 'em hard right in the mouth and then explain, 'I'm just supporting your right of free speech the same way you support the troops.'
