The Only Good Democrat…

The libs continued their silly protesting on Sunday.
Texas Rainmaker said it best:
George Clooney is complaining that the U.S. is waiting too long to send troops into Sudan:
“Is the American government slow to act? Of course we’re slow to act, we always are,” Clooney said… (Except, of course, in Iraq, where we needed to wait another 10 years and another 14 UN resolutions!)
…So now they want to send troops into an oil-rich, predominantly Muslim country, with suspected ties to al-Qaida and WMDs, that’s experiencing genocide?
How very chicken-hawkish of them.
And, from Instapundit:
Jose Guardia emails: “Yeah, it’s great that some people are marching against the genocide in Darfur; and no, I can’t understand either why for them for them it’s OK to intervene militarily in Darfur and it wasn’t in Iraq. Anyway, just wait until -if- Bu$Hitler starts making plans for an intervention. You’ll see how fast they start chanting ‘No War.'”
And, yes, I am all for taking action on Darfar.
Atlas Shruggs, who has been follwoing the Darfur story closely, has much on Sunday’s “tongue without bones” protest including this:
They came out as one to demand the Bush administration push harder. If they did their homework, they’d know that Bush is not the problem. If they did their homework they’d know Bush has been Sisyphus pushing an apathetic, yellow bellied, paralyzed UN and an even less engaged European community. If they did their homework they’d know NATO has refused to send troops to Darfur. If they did their homework they’d know the AU peacekeepers are scared to death and incapable of saving or protecting those people. Darfur needs NATO.
