Why isn’t anyone on our side saying this:
These guys are corrupt and incompetent. They have screwed up the Iraq war, turned FEMA into a joke and landed the next generation with a mountain of debt. We’re for making the homeland safer, winning back our allies, and taking on the Iranian dictatorship. We’re for energy independence, universal healthcare and balancing the budget again.
Why does it fall to Andy Sullivan to tell us this?
And while we’re on the subject of responding, why aren’t more folks ripping Republicans a new one for trying to politicize Coretta Scott King’s funeral? This may come as a surprise to many, but at the end of his life, Reverend King was stoutly opposed to the Vietnam War. His widow, in fact, spoke at a massive anti-war rally only three weeks after her husband was brutally murdered.
Therefore, it’s not out of the realm of possibility that the Reverend and Mrs. King would be opposed to our current, star-crossed adventure in Iraq. Both of them were bold, daring, uncompromising leaders; and that’s the image that should, and will, live on–not the spavined, sanitized January-shopping-holiday version.
