Best Viewed with IE or Opera. Sorry, Firefox works, but loses some sidebar layout,
'my profile' and other stuff... Anybody with a fix, please leave a comment. Many thanks in advance.

That said, if you must use Firefox (and I don't blame you, it's become my browser of choice, too)
...get the "IE Tab" extension. This allows you to view problem pages with the IE rendering engine. Very cool!

Spock v Ann

Posted by Picasa

You know, it is just coincidence that I put this pic up and then came across this wingnut site praising Ann's latest column. It fits and the synchronicity couldn't be greater.---pseudolus

from "RANTING RIGHT WING HOWLER" (I am not making this up.)

I almost didn't read her column as I have so much to catch up on but I am glad I did.

She accurately describes all that I feel about our craven Republican Congress-critters especially over what they recently engaged in vis-a-vis John Murtha. Damn near all of them would preface anything they said about him with some ass-kissing tribute to his "service."

An example:
I don't know what Republicans imagine they're getting out of all this love they keep throwing at Democrats. I've never heard a single liberal preface attacks on Oliver North with a recitation of North's magnificent service as a Marine. And unlike Murtha, who refuses to release his medical records showing he was entitled to his two Purple Hearts, we know what North did.[see what North is like here--pseudolus]

Here's another:
We also know what Rep. Randy Cunningham, R-Calif., did to earn his medals. One of only two American Navy aces that the Vietnam War produced, Cunningham shot down five MiGs, three in one day, including a North Vietnamese pilot with 13 American kills. Cunningham never did something as insane as proposing that we withdraw troops in the middle of a war, but this week he did admit to taking bribes.

And yet, no Democrat breathed a word of Cunningham's unquestioned heroism before rushing to denounce him as "the latest example of the culture of corruption"? in the words of Rep. Nancy Pelosi.

And another:

Sen. Teddy Kennedy didn't issue a 20-minute soliloquy on what a wonderful man Judge Robert Bork was as a human being before attacking his judicial philosophy. Kennedy just laid into Bork like he was George Lincoln Rockwell.
Maybe the point was that Democrats were trying to establish Murtha's 'bona fides' for being taken seriously in his opinion and weren't just trotting out his CV to pull on America's heart strings and play people like little violins of pity. Maybe they aren't so used to whipping out the flag and rolling themselves and their heros in it to cover up and protect them from criticism of any kind. But that's what wingnuts do and it's the first thing they think others are doing or should be doing. Oh, yeah, and just maybe they aren't into highlighting the shame these criminals brought on their associated services, something this clown obviously doesn't think or care about. Murtha did not shame the Marine Corps with his proposal, but Ollie and Duke-stir certainly shamed the uniforms they wore and the men they served with.

She caps it all off with this:
The only Republican congressman who did not offer to have sex with John Murtha on the House floor was Jean Schmidt, R-Ohio. While debating Murtha's own proposal to withdraw American troops from Iraq in the middle of a war waged to depose a monstrous dictator who posed a threat to American national security, Schmidt made the indisputably true remark that Marines don't cut and run. (She was right! Murtha voted against his own proposal.)
Schmidt was not "debating" anything. Debate does not include ad hominem attacks on one's opponents especially on the House floor. Especially by a freshman congressmen against a highly respected senior member. Especially when said freshman promised she would behave in only the most honorable way in her term of office. Debate should also not include making up lies attributed to one's contituents and their claimed concerns as she did about Rep. Bbup back home. Oh, and Murtha didn't vote against his own proposal, which was to draw down troops over the next 6 months and not immediate withdrawal as proposed in the staged vote. By the way Pretzel-nit Bush himself announced this week that it was his plan to do just what Murtha so 'controversially' proposed.

And the topper of all toppers:
If Republicans were one-tenth as rough with the congressman who wants to withdraw troops in the middle of a war as they are on a congresswoman who calls it cowardly to withdraw troops in the middle of a war, we might have a functioning Republican Party.

Geez, the pity party again. "Poor us! We don't get no respect!" They only have contrived to take over the three branches of government. They wield power only dreamed of before in American history. And yet, they have a non-functioing party. Why? Because they haven't herded all the brown people, all the Lie-berals, all the gays into concentration camps? Because the U.S. treasury still holds money that should rightly be sitting in numbered accounts in the Cayman Islands? Because the Bible is not yet the Law of the Land?

GAWD, she's one hot lady! And still single! I'd love to change that!

Oh. Retch. You can have her, buddy!
