Clem SpanksThatDonkey in Slantin Mis Leader



Andrew Clem takes the Slantin (to the Left) Mis Leader to task for its recent editorial view on the war.

My favorite part:

As for the war's execution, I regret that Bush's neoconservative advisers failed
to appreciate the depth of nationalistic sentiment in Iraq, thus underestimating
the number of troops needed for occupation, but your editorial's complaint that
we "destabilized the Middle East" wrongly implies that the prewar status quo was
manageable. Sure, Iraq right now is a "mess," just as Europe was for several
years after fascism was defeated there. Was that our fault? As freedom and
democracy spread unpredictably across the Middle East, there will be inevitable
turbulence, just as neoconservatives anticipated. In that uplifting context,
saying that "thousands of lives have been wasted" exhibits terrible judgment on
your part. As for faltering public support, if Lincoln had to worry about low
poll numbers, the Confederacy probably would have won the Civil War.


Then, Mr Clem finales (see link) with a two handed salvo to the rear of the Donkey. Well Done Andrew !!!

    Hot & Accurate letter by Clem and very well written. I was surprised to see that the Slanton Mis-leader did not counter with one of their "Can" letters that they seem to print at the same time. I am sure the Slant-Mill is running at full tilt to counter this letter in the next few days...

    Nothing like a good spanking...

    Really!!! You're Right (RightsideVa) It is curious that the MisLeader didn't have a little retort on hand via a local Dem... Maybe they are still "dazed and confused" after "w" laid the "paddle to their backsides at the Naval Academy!!!! or they're just tired of defending the "indefensible" that this country is safer because of our efforts in Iraq

    While the News Leader did deserve a good spanking for saying that lives were "wasted," my main purpose was trying to reason with the wavering folks who are aware that some mistakes were made but haven't yet fallen into the trap of Democrat defeatism. To me, it's a good sign that Democrats are starting to talk about how to win. Bush's recent speeches have worked wonders! As Joe Lieberman shows, there may be hope for some of those donkeys.

    Andrew:
    I think the ultimate answer lies in that Hillary herself voted for the War.... If she thought we were going to lose the war, she would be "full throated" against it now. Her soap opera is the "Days of our Triangulations"

    No matter how you look at it, she can go wherever her "polls" lead her... just like Bill...
