When Crazy Makes the Headlines

Q: What do you call it when reporters urge you to swallow that “cutting and running” is not defeatist?
A: A hard pill.

From the Washington Post:

Bush Team Casts Foes as Defeatist

President Bush and his surrogates are launching a new campaign intended to rebuild support for the war in Iraq by accusing the opposition of aiming to appease terrorists and cut off funding for troops on the battlefield, charges that many Democrats say distort their stated positions.

Let’s see… How does one address this nonsense?

When a party openly calls to Cut and Run from a war, not just once but twice or three times
That’s defeatist.

When party leaders use bogus polling numbers to strengthen their cut and run arguments…
That’s defeatist.

When a party promotes fighting a war against Islamic Fascists from Okinawa
That’s defeatist.

When a party purges itself of one of the few members who openly supports an operation, even when times get tough…
That’s defeatist.

When party members leak national security secrets and are frog marched from Langley…
That’s defeatist.

When a party member openly equates a US prison with the death camps of Stalin
That’s defeatist.

When a party member calls innocent soldiers “Cold Blooded Killers”
That’s defeatist.

When a party leader equates the abuse at Abu Ghraib with the torture chambers of Saddam Hussein…
That’s defeatist.

When the voice of the party leaks secrets that will hurt in efforts to track the enemy…
That’s defeatist.

When the former party leader attacks a strong ally
That’s defeatist.

When liberal websites spout off that the real fascists are in Washington
That’s just crazy.

Hugh Hewitt has more on this ridiculous foot stomp.
Back Talk has more thoughts on the seriousness of the democrats.
