Too little, too late

Ann Coulter puts it best when she describes Lurch as the "'botched joke' of American politics". His comments about the military are nothing short of disgraceful. I am more apt to believe the black helicopter Alex Jones crowd than Lurch's "apology". It wasn't the first time he has made such comments. This is only the latest in a string of them. He displayed how he and the rest of the moonbats really feel about the military. Michael Barone put it wonderfully when he said, "democRATs look at the military as one of two things: either victims or predators." This is exactly how people like Kerry and Murtha portray our men and women in our armed forces. I wonder if Lurch would characterize his previous remarks as a "botched joke" as well. Yesterday in Time magazine, Rand Beers, Lurch's national security adviser in the 2004 campaign, said, "No one who has ever been in combat would intentionally impugn our brave troops."

Really? Then the following two incidents surely could not have happened:

"They had personally raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, taped wires from portable telephones to human genitals and turned up the power, cut off limbs, blown up bodies, randomly shot at civilians, razed villages in fashion reminiscent of Genghis Khan, shot cattle and dogs for fun, poisoned food stocks, and generally ravaged the country side of South Vietnam in addition to the normal ravage of war, and the normal and very particular ravaging which is done by the applied bombing power of this country." - John Kerry, testifying before the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations on 22 April 1971.

"And there is no reason, Bob, that young American soldiers need to be going into the homes of Iraqis in the dead of night, terrorizing kids and children." - John Kerry on cBS' deFace The Nation on 4 December 2004
