Trolling for troglodytes.
Albumen abuser Matt Drudge uses a headline to mislead the dimwitted regarding Sen. Patty Murray’s comments on Bin Laden:
Of course, what Murray was actually doing was asking students why Bin Laden remains so popular in the Middle East despite his terrorist activities.
“We’ve got to ask, why is this man (Osama bin Laden) so popular around the world?,” said Murray, who faces re-election in 2004. “Why are people so supportive of him in many countries â€¦ that are riddled with poverty?
“He’s been out in these countries for decades, building schools, building roads, building infrastructure, building day care facilities, building health care facilities, and the people are extremely grateful. We haven’t done that.
“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?”
Pretty inflamatory stuff, eh? But it doesn’t quite achieve the Trent Lott threshold now, does it?
Don’t tell the freepers though. Faced with the propect of Senate Majority Bill Frist who makes his fortune sucking the brains out of babies (as Ann Coulter would oh so delicately put it), they need something to lock and load about.
Experience the hooting…experience the spittle…visit Free Republic.
