Senator Harkin has certainly drunken a spiked KoolAid, something laced way beyond the To Be Drunk Or Not To Be dosage, falls into the Senate floor and says:
HARKIN: I’ll just close, Mr. President, by noting that in August, seven soldiers published an op-ed in the New York Times criticizing the current strategy in Iraq. Tragically, two of those soldiers were subsequently killed in action, making the ultimate sacrifice for their country.
I can only assume by Mr. Limbaugh’s definition that they too were “phony soldiers.” Now what’s most despicable is that Mr. Limbaugh says these provocative things to make more money. So he castigates our soldiers, this makes more news, more people tune in, he makes more money.
Well, I don’t know. Maybe he was just high on his drugs again. I don’t know whether he was or not. If so, he ought to let us know. But that shouldn’t be an excuse.
View a video of the slurs, if you must, at THINK PROGRESS. But reading Harkin’s excess ought to be enough to turn you away. It was for me.
The Democrats have certainly lost whatever touch some of them had with reality. And we have thirteen more months of this. I can’t begin to imagine to what extremes they will go when they lose in November ’08.
I’d effort to write something more serious and less flippant about the state of Democrats today, but there’s nothing good and serious that can be said about them. Their day, this day, has peaked at the Newest Crazy Place as yet they’ve fallen.
Because, this is all motivated by national security and the Democrats’ refusal to support our nation in defense. And in the Democrats placing all their bets on winning in ‘o8 in service to the counter-national (read that as “treasonous” if you wish, because that’s how I intend it to mean) Left who really, really can’t stand the idea of the U.S. as doing good and doing that well while using our military to accomplish the difficult.
