Common sense isn't common

Babble on.

I wish - oh, do I WISH! - that we had some common-sense, say-it-like-you-see-it politicians public servants like Zell Miller up here in Canuckistan (hat tip to Ravishing Light).

John Kerry and his crowd derisively call American troops "occupiers" because it fits with their warped belief that America is the problem, not the solution. While more than 50 million people in Afghanistan and Iraq are enjoying freedom, Mr. Kerry is still fretting over whether the U.N. crowd likes us or not. The American people will not abide a commander in chief who gets squeamish over America's role as a liberating force in the world.

And my critics love to point out that I had nice things to say about John Kerry when I introduced him to a Georgia Democratic dinner in 2001. That's true and I meant it. But, again, timing is everything. I made that introduction in March 2001--six months before terrorists attacked this country on Sept. 11. As I have said time and again, 9/11 changed everything. Everything, that is, except the national Democrats' shameful, manic obsession with bringing down a commander in chief. John Kerry has been wrong many times, but he's never been more wrong than in his failure to support our troops and our commander in chief in this war on terror. (Bold by Brooks)

Unfortunately, we get the real Coalition of Idiots instead.

Babble off.

I never did understand that second highlighted bit. Of course the Dems are trying to bring Bush down...it is an election after all.

It started way before the election cycle. The politization of the war on terror started just as soon after 9/11 as it could fashionably be done, and continued throughout the Iraq war.

The hypocrisy tickles me though. The same people who insisted that it was patriotic for the likes of the Dixie Chicks to say whatever they please to another country during wartime were screaming 'treason' when Zell spoke his mind in front of another party during campaign time.
