seems like you righties always have to denigrate a political figure you don't like.
I'm sorry that you're so engrossed in your partisanship that you can't recognize your own contradictions. How you think calling Bush an idiot is any less denigrating if you preface it with "Mr." or "President" is beyond me. You would seriously
be less upset if I had called her Senator Patty "Tennis-Shoes," "bin Laden-Daycare-Centers" Murray
? If so, that reaches a new and totally absurd level of hairsplitting.
Maybe if you actually lived in Washington and had to listen to SENATOR
Patty Murray (happy now?) spout off about this issue -- we need protectionism to defend WA
's farmers -- or that issue -- Boeing needs open and unrestricted access to foreign markets -- in contradictory befuddlement, you wouldn't be so quick to defend her.
By the way, unlike RWAK or "ignorant fool," these aren't denigrating names that I made up: Patty Murray ran her first campaign on the premise that she was a soccer mom in tennis shoes, not an "beltway career politician." In late 2002, she gave a talk to Vancouver high school students in which she opined that Osama bin Laden is popular because:
"He's been out in these countries for decades, building schools, building roads, building infrastructure, building day-care facilities, building health-care facilities, and these people are extremely grateful. We haven't done that. We haven’t been out in many of these countries helping them build infrastructure. How would they look at us today if we had been there helping them with some of that, rather than just being the people who are going to bomb in Iraq and go to Afghanistan?"
And to cap it off, in her current bid for a third term, Patty Murray's campaign commercials blast the Bush administration because we're building schools and fire stations in the Middle East instead of in the US!
And you can possibly defend someone who makes these simply bizarre statements?
Takes one to know one, I suppose. But please, keep trying to spin your way out of your own blatant contradictions. It makes for entertaining reading.
