Two new planks in the Democrats' platform

By

Senator Jay Rockefeller is in full propaganda mode again and the mask slipped,

"Rockefeller went a step further. He says the world would be better off today if the United States had never invaded Iraq' even if it means Saddam Hussein would still be running Iraq.
He said he sees that as a better scenario, and a safer scenario, "because it is called the 'war on terror.'" 

(h/t: Sweetness & Light)

Well, he's in luck, Saddam's still alive. It surely would be a simple thing for someone with Rockefeller's reputation and seniority to add a plank to the party platform which made it clear the Dems want to release Saddam and return him to  power.

He beat Sherrod Brown as the Dummie of the day, but just barely:

Congressman Sherrod Brown of Ohio said the U.S.—led invasion of Iraq has made the country "a training ground for terrorists and a recruiting tool for the leaders of al—Qaida." He said the war on terror should be redirected to end what he calls the "open—ended commitment in Iraq" and refocus military efforts on destroying al—Qaida.

(h/t: Strata—sphere)

And surely, it would not detract from the party's coherent message to tack on Brown's point,too. Add to the platform: We will fight Al Qaeda except wherever we actually find them.

You can't make this stuff up.

Update: Steve Gilbert of Sweetness & Light reminds us of Saddam's letter to the American people and adds that it apparently convinced Rockefeller.
