Anti-winger talking points

I’m passing along some great reverse-the-participant talking points to toss at GOP Kool-Aid-drinking A-holes that you encounter, courtesy of IndyScott. Most of them probably will strain their brains trying to visualize these, then go into overload and ultimately denial (or start quoting scripture), but hey, it’s fun to try. I added some photos for a dash of flavor.

* If Bill Clinton had been in charge of the national security of this country on September 11, 2001 and terrorists murdered 3,000 Americans, what would you be saying about him?

* If Bill Clinton had invaded Iraq based on WMD that didn’t exist, what would you be saying about him?

* If Bill Clinton had dressed up in a flight suit and landed on the U.S.S. Abraham Lincoln five weeks after the war began and told us it was over, what would you be saying about him?

* If Bill Clinton had said “Bring ’em on” and encouraged Iraqi insurgents to kill American troops, what would you be saying about him?

* If Bill Clinton had made us the face of torture in the world, what would you be saying about him?

* If James Carville and other members of a Clinton White House outed an undercover CIA officer during a time of war, what would you be saying about them?

* If Bill Clinton had sent troops to Iraq without adequate body armor and other equipment, what would you be saying about him?

* If Bill Clinton’s hatchet-men claimed that John McCain and Chuck Hagel never served honorably in Vietnam and didn’t deserve their medals, what would you be saying about him?

* If participants at the Democratic National Convention handed out Purple Heart band-aids to mock McCain and Hagel, what would you be saying about them?

* If a male prostitute posing as a White House “reporter” for a left-wing media organization was throwing softball questions to Bill Clinton, what would you be saying about him?

* If the Clinton White House had paid off Molly Ivins and Paul Krugman to endorse administration policy in friendly opinion pieces, what would you be saying about him?

* If Bill Clinton’s administration had inherited a budget surplus and turned it into a $400 billion deficit, what would you be saying about him?

* If Bill Clinton had been elected without winning the popular vote, what would you be saying about him?

* If Bill Clinton’s electoral victory was decided by roughly 500 votes in a state where Bill Clinton’s brother was the Governor and his state campaign co-chair was the vote-counting Secretary of State, what would you be saying about the integrity of that election?

* If Al Franken (not Rush Limbaugh) had three failed marriages and a drug habit, what would you be saying about him?

* If Michael Moore (not Bill Bennett) had a gambling addiction, what would you be saying about him?

* If Keith Olbermann (not Bill O’Reilly) had a phone sex addiction, what would you be saying about him?

* If Bill Clinton (not George W. Bush) was born into political and financial royalty with a grandfather in the Senate and a father who would later be President of the United States, would you still consider him to be “one of us” or “authentic” or “a guy you’d want to have a beer with”?
