Scoundrel time in the US Senate

James Lewis
For sheer unmitigated sleaze I can't remember anything even approaching Democrat Senators Reid and Harkin this week. (Also, for sheer stupidity). Those senators are throwing mud (and worse) at Rush Limbaugh, of all people, for insulting the US military --- right there on the august floor of the US Senate.

This new attack comes two weeks after Moveon.org cat-called General Petraeus as "General Betray Us" in the receptive pages of The New York Times -- to the deafening silence of the same distinguished senators. The House condemned the insult to Petraeus by a vote of four to one. Even though the slam instantly rebounded against the mud throwers, Moveon, The NYT, and the Democrats, the senators never disavowed the insult against Petraeus -- who happens to be our most successful general in the Iraq war.


It's scoundrel time again in Washington, D.C.

No sane person who has actually listened to his show believes that Rush has ever insulted the military, since he goes out of his way to praise their courage and competence every chance he gets.  Perhaps fifty million American adults have listened to Rush's radio show over the eighteen years he has been on the air, and none of them would believe this for a moment. Even the Left doesn't believe it.  Certainly the military doesn't.

Dropping a blatant political lie that everybody knows to be a lie is not just sleazy, it is also astoundingly stupid.

Moreover, Democrats like Reid and Harkin have shown since 9/11/01 that they despise the United States and our foreign policy, and that includes our awesome military.

For innovative political suicide, Sens. Reid and Harkin deserve not just the Senator Joe McCarthy Memorial Award for Demagogy, but also the Wrong-Way Corrigan Award for Self-Destructive Stupidity.

It just goes to prove again that today's Democrats cannot be trusted -- on national defense, or on any other serious policy matter.

Just a little more of this, and the Dems will throw the election of 2008 as badly as George McGovern did in 1972. But the comparison is unfair to former Senator McGovern, who is an honest man. 

Keep it up, scoundrels.
