Welcome, Michelle Malkin readers!
I see Our Lady of the Concentration Camps has included me in her list of bad, bad leftists who hate America and long for its defeat. (Scroll down toward the end of this endless post to the graf beginning, “The leftists…”)
In this painfully sanctimonious post, Malkin yet again endorses the most vile of all the mindless Bush slogans, “We’re fighting them over there [Iraq] so we won’t have to fight them here.” I always marvel at this and wonder if anyone could really swallow such nonsense. The Iraqis are fighting an ancient and regional battle. Does anyone with even a fraction of a brain believe if we suffered defeat there that those trying to kill us would then attack us in America? How would they get here? Rowboats? Pogo sticks? What would they fight us with? How could they take on the world’s most powerful army on its own turf, where they have no local support? The mind reels at such an assertion. And yet Malkin clings to it with a religious zeal.
