“Hell. In Texas we jes’ drag ’em from the back of a truck. Now that’s torture…”
Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, and House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., also sought Rumsfeld’s resignation.
â€œFor the good of our country, the safety of our troops and our image around the globe,” Harkin said in a statement, “Secretary Rumsfeld should resign. If he does not resign forthwith, the president should fire him.â€
Republican lawmakers responded at a news conference, with Majority Leader Tom DeLay, R-Texas, saying that â€œthis morning, in a calculated and craven political stunt, the national Democratic Party declared its surrender in the war on terror.â€
Democrats, said Rep. Michael Burgess, R-Texas, â€œbasically are giving aid and comfort to the enemy.â€
Responsibility being a terriorist trait, don’cha know….
Kind of makes you wonder how Texas managed to come in 40th on that IQ chart.
