Moonbat Mayor to Greet Vets With Cindy Sheehan

It's no wonder Salt Lake City's moonbat mayor Rocky Anderson is planning to bring in Cindy Sheehan for a protest during the American Legion's 88th annual national convention in his town next week. Countermoonbattery will dominate the Legion's agenda.

The convention will start with a recap of last year's resolution in support of the War on Terror, to which the loopy Left is so adamantly opposed.

Immigration reform will be discussed, with an emphasis on securing the border. Look for the Legion to reject amnesty and dual citizenship, and to call on immigrants to assimilate.

Also on the "top issues" agenda will be a discussion of how lawsuits waged by the ACLU are using taxpayers' money to attack American values.

Mayor Anderson's protest — timed to correspond with President Bush's arrival in Salt Lake City next Wednesday — may be understandable from the progressive point of view. But American Legion National Commander Tom Bock doesn't think much of it. He worries that service members will be maligned the way they were during Vietnam. Peaceniks may find it politically expedient these days to claim they support the troops even as they attack their mission, but in the end there is no separating the war from those who fight it. Says Bock:

When we start to fragment this country, that's when we start to feel defeat. America is not the bad guy — terrorists are the bad guys.

Terrorists — and their fifth column allies.

Can someone explain why this kook is Mayor of Salt Lake City?

It's because they held the last election on a Sunday. The day Mormons can't do anything like go out to vote. Pretty smart, huh? Yes, Moonbats always howl about "demooooooocracy!" but they're the only ones who get to make the rules. Kinda sounds like a 2 year old.

Those damn Legionnaires with all their crazy ideas about winning wars and supporting the troops and stuff. I'm sure Rocky the Squirrel will set them straight.

Mormons and I don't get on at the best of time, but they should certainly be allowed to vote. If the dems do it again perhaps the church should give them a special dispensation to go out and vote that sunday.

You seem to be getting along okay with at least one of us. ;-)
