Shrill, Loathsome and Ugly


Al Gore's incendiary anti-American remarks may have gone down nicely in Saudi Arabia, but they don't seem to be playing well at home. As you'll recall, Gore's George Galloway act at the Jeddah Economic Forum included unsubstantiated claims that the US government "indiscriminately rounded up" Arabs after September 11, held them in "unforgivable" conditions, and subjected them to "terrible abuses."

As the National Association of Chiefs of Police points out, Prince Albert "crossed the line of diplomatic decency by denigrating his own country within the Islamic world." They invited him to share any evidence he might have of "terrible abuses" with Congress, and described his anti-American allegations as "shrill," "loathsome" and "ugly" — three words that increasingly fit the Democratic Party as a whole.

Rep Peter King (R-NY) didn't think much of Gore's rhetoric either. Calling his conduct "disgraceful," King observed, "Either he's lost it or he's putting his hatred of Bush ahead of America's security" — another comment that could easily be applied to today's Democrats in general.

However, Chuck Schumer did dispute Gore's notion that we are oppressing Saudis by not making it even easier for them to enter our country.

The principled Hillary Clinton declined to comment. Maybe she's waiting for poll numbers to come in before issuing her heartfelt response.

OT: Campus Moonbattery These Minutes from the University of Washington Student Senate provide a telling portrait in unstrained moonbattery. The senate was debating whether to erect a statue to honor World War II Hero Colonel Gregory "Pappy" Boyington USMC, an American fighter ace who commanded the legendary VMF-214 (The Black Sheep Squadron) during World War II. For his Marine Corps service he was awarded the Navy Cross and the Medal of Honor.

Jill Edwards questioned whether it was appropriate to honor a person who killed other people. She said she didn’t’ believe a member of the Marine Corps was an example of the sort of person UW wanted to produce.
Ashley Miller commented that many monuments at UW already commemorate rich white men.
(Note, Boyington was working-class, and half Sioux Indian).
Mikhail Smirnoff said he supported the resolution. He said the resolution does not support a final product, but that it only supports the concept of the monument. He said he understood the sentiment of not wanting to reward those who fought in the war, but that he thought those who fought in WWII were heros and that it was a much different war than the controversial war in Iraq.

Sounds like all of these young skulls full of mosh have promising careers in the Democratic Party.

VK, I saw that story, too. More products of our fine government indoctrination, public schools.
