Co.Gov.Owens' little Republican humor falls flat with the French
Edited on Tue May-25-04 05:17 PM by MissMarple
edited for ambiguity fix.

Well surprise, surprise. The Colorado gov, just doesn't get it, all the Republicans laughed. These guys are so immature, they can't see that no one else is laughing. Now the French didn't support us in Iraq because.... of lack of evidence to perpetrate what was sure to be a debacle. And they do support us in Afghanistan,.... because of 9-11, and because we are allies, business partners and they are decent people.

These Republican idiots only talk with each other, there are no voices they hear that can say, "Well,...that's not entirely accurate."

<C'est dommage, responded Nathalie Loiseau of the French Embassy in Washington. She admonished Colorado's two-term governor for "uselessly practicing French bashing for the purpose of playing politics." Owens delivered his riffs to a crowd of 2,000 Michigan Republicans after contrasting President Bush's leadership with that of likely Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry. Kerry, he said, "would wait for a permission slip to be filled out by the United Nations and initialed by France" before rebuilding Iraq.

Owens was unavailable Monday to explain his bon mots against the French.

Communications director Sean Duffy said the governor "has been very concerned about European and other nations who have been not only unsupportive, but actively antagonistic in the conduct and the run-up to the Iraq war."

"He was pointing out how America has sacrificed for other nations. So, historically, he was trying to point out that America has done a lot for France," he continued.>

1. he was trying to point out that America has done a lot for France....
Of course France has never done anything for the U.S., unless you want to count that little matter of the fleet that helped to bottle up the British Army at Yorktown.

These people don't seem to understand that.

3. France sold Colorado to us, Governor Dipsh*t....
...in a little thing called the Louisiana Purchase.

Best box it up and ship it back, along with the Statue of Liberty.

loves bashing Gov. Owens on her KNRC show. Listening to the archive of today's show at http://www.WhiteRoseSociety.org might be entertaining.

5. we loves our Enid
It's too bad that fascist right wing program director (who also happens to be one of the hosts) has moved her out of drive time.

Had high hopes for KNRC at one time..........
