They All Betray-Us

Officers of the Armed Forces are fair game for criticism. They aren't on the front lines getting shot at or torn apart by IEDs.

MoveOn was completely justified in its ad criticizing Betrayus b/c he's a damn lying shill for the White House and it was a GD debacle how the Republicans took the important time out of Congress to debate some stupid effing bill to shake a finger at them and for damn too many Democrats to vote for that finger shake. All involved should be ashamed. 1st freakin' amendment.

So now we've got to waste time again to make a point at the hypocrisy. FAUX news said this about the generals last week. Again, fair game and nothing wrong with it... except for the hypocrisy part.

Glenn Greenwald - Political Blogs and Opinions:

"As we learned from both our Senate and House last week, in the United States we must never 'attack the honor and integrity . . . of members of the United States Armed Forces.' All good patriots from both parties agree on this. That is why I was so shocked and outraged -- and more than a little upset -- when I went to this morning and saw this: "

Our generals are betraying our soldiers . . . again.
This, however, is completely indefensible and the Pill-Popper should never work again.

Army of Dude: The Real Deal:

Blue Girl directed me to a very interesting story about Rush Limbaugh, who called veterans opposed to the war phony soldiers. Of course, this is the same Rush Limbaugh who threw a fit about the Petraeus ad, calling it 'contemptible' and 'indecent.' Apparently anyone in the military is above criticism as long as they agree with Rush's brave belief that we should be in Iraq 'as long as it takes.' And I use the term 'we' loosely, as I believe the closest Rush has ever gotten to combat was watching We Were Soldiers with surround sound."


This is Chevy in Baghdad. Brian Chevalier was going to reenlist but decided against it before he was killed on March 14 during our first mission in Baqubah. His phony life was celebrated in a phony memorial where everyone who knew him cried phony tears. A phony American flag draped over his phony coffin when his body came home. It was presented to his phony mother and phony daughter.

I would be in awe if I ever met a real life soldier, and not a phony one like Bill, Matt or Brian Chevalier. Thank you, Rush Limbaugh, for telling me the difference. I hope your ass is ok.


Damn, I already need a drink....

Ain't a matter of 'letting' its a matter of 'tryin' to stop 'em' where I come from...

Rare Scotch whisky tops world record auction price:

"LONDON (AFP) - A 157-year-old whisky was sold for more than 29,000 pounds (41,500 euros/59,200 dollars) Friday, setting what is thought to be a world record auction price for a bottle of Scotch. ADVERTISEMENT The Bowmore single malt, which was bottled in 1850, was sold at McTear's auctioneers in Glasgow for 29,400 pounds to an anonymous telephone bidder, beating the distillery itself"
