Yes, Let’s Do Mention the War

Tucker Carlson is on MSNBC asking Al Sharpton if, as a Democrat, he resents the fact that John Kerry is making it "all about himself" a week before the election.

Oh fer the love of Gawd. They just hate it when Democrats like Mike Stark and John Kerry fight back.  This is the GOP nightmare one week before the election, that high profile Democrats start saying stuff like this:

The people who owe our troops an apology are George W. Bush and Dick Cheney who misled America into war and have given us a Katrina foreign policy that has betrayed our ideals, killed and maimed our soldiers, and widened the terrorist threat instead of defeating it. These Republicans are afraid to debate veterans who live and breathe the concerns of our troops, not the empty slogans of an Administration that sent our brave troops to war without body armor.

Bottom line, these Republicans want to debate straw men because they're afraid to debate real men. And this time it won't work because we're going to stay in their face with the truth and deny them even a sliver of light for their distortions. No Democrat will be bullied by an administration that has a cut and run policy in Afghanistan and a stand still and lose strategy in Iraq."

Al Sharpton went on to observe that "If John Kerry is smart, he will keep the issue out there about what he said about Iraq" and "thanks be to Tony Snow.  He's brought [the war] back front and center."  Even the WSJ acknowledges that the war is what's killing the GOP at the polls.  The only ones who seem to be proud of their roles in leading us into war are George Bush, Dick Cheney and Joe Lieberman.

Ding-Dong Dawn Frantangelo cited the discredited Doug Schwartz two week-old outlier Q-Poll, backed up by nothing either before or since, that said Lamont is behind by 17 points. 

Her hair did look rather untended so I can only assume she sucked down all the hairspray fumes beforehand and had nothing left over for her head.
