Talk about a sore loser

As American Thinker predicted on Thursday, Richard Clarke's appearance on Bill Maher's HBO show provided another platform for him to posture and preen, but not to respond to any serious questions about the growing threat of Islamofascism through the 1990?s.

I hope you won't be too stunned to learn that Bill Maher did not ask any of Michael Scheuer's questions. In fact, in one jaw—dropping rant, Mr. Clarke, comparing the current president's administration with his father's, and pontificated about what a 'dumb idea' it was to liberate Iraq. This from the man who told Sandy Berger that if Osama bin Laden were driven from Afghanistan he would 'boogie to Bagdhad' (see p. 134, 9/11 Report

Still, Mr. Clarke's inevitable performance, and make no mistake, that's what it was, failed to win the 'Statement Most Likely to Delight the Moonbat Blogs' that night on Bill Maher's show. That prize goes to the droning, long—faced junior senator from Massachusetts, John F. Kerry

After telling Maher that he and Te—RAY—zuh went to Vermont to celebrate her birthday, Kerry and the condescending comic had the following exchange:

Maher:  'You could have went [sic] to New Hampshire and killed 2 birds with one stone.'

Kerry: 'I could have gone to 1600 Pennsylvania and killed the real bird with one stone.' [delighted applause and laughter from the crowd]

Clearly this offensive statement has one thing going for it. For once Mr. Long—Story—Longer said something in less than five minutes, the meaning of which was crystal clear. It was designed to appeal to the people of the ilk of the silly passel of goofs who created the embarrassment that is Ned Lamont. It echoes the crazed musings of Cindy Sheehan. In her book Peace Mom, released last month, she writes of traveling back in time to kill the infant George W. Bush. Others on the left speak, write, and even make a film about the assasination of George W. Bush. Floating the fantasy of assasinating him plants the suggestion in the minds of millions. Just like seeing a school shooting on TV seems to trigger others to act out their own fantasy, so, too, this indulgence in sending out the message of assasination could have unfortunate consequences.

Of all the people she could think of to go back and time and kill, this pathetic Pitiful Pearl comes up with George W. Bush? What? Hitler, Stalin and Pol Pot were no problem? Not to mention Osama bin Laden. Let me suggest to Sen. Kerry that when you're getting your material from Cindy Sheehan, you should consider getting some new writers.

Speaking of his writers, Sen. Kerry also tried out a new line on Maher's show that came awfully close to his gay—bashing Mary Cheney comment in a 2004 presidential debate http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp—dyn/articles/A43375—2004Oct18.html . Referring to the supposed 'incompetence' of the Bush administration (you don't have to ask. OF COURSE he mentioned Katrina! That's mandatory!), he said:

'How can these people possibly protect the United States of America protect us from terrorists when they can't even protect us from Congressman Mark Foley?'

You're right, Senator. Mark Foley remained at large for many years. That fact notwithstanding, we haven't had another attack on our soil since the grownups decided to go on offense.

You need some new writers, but that's not all, you need some new ideas. I know it's hard to believe, given how exciting the notion of killing President Bush is to you, Cindy Sheehan and that nutty broad who won the Nobel prize, but I've got news for you. Most Americans are appalled and disgusted by the idea and are left wondering just exactly when it not only ceased to be illegal to say such things, but became downright fashionable in some sick circles.?
