This one's for you, TayTay
Via the Carpetbagger, and 'cause I know you're such a big fan of Senator Barfbag:

On MSNBC's Hardball last night, Allen and Chris Matthews teamed up on Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) while discussing the war in Iraq, the budget, and offsets post-Katrina. Durbin was more holding his own, questioning the administration's judgment and the GOP's decisions.

    "Well, at this point, we're behind our men and women in uniform. Those of us who might have disagreed with going into this war are not going to shortchange the men and women in uniform the equipment that they need. We didn't have a plan for what to do after Saddam Hussein fell. And we have lost over 1,900 of the bravest young men and women in this country already. And there's no plan from this administration to bring our troops home, no plan to put the responsibility for leadership on the Iraqis themselves."


Allen intervened.

    "What we're trying to do is help out the Iraqis as they're trying to construct a constitution. We're on the side of those who are trying to build a country. We're not on the side of the terrorists who are blowing up police stations, shopping centers <> So, what side are you going to be on?"


There they go again. A Dem criticizes a failing policy; a Republican responds with overly-simplistic, "you're with us or against us"-style rhetoric.

Allen's implications weren't even subtle. In his twisted worldview, there are simply two sides: Bush's and terrorists. It's the reasoning of a child and it's been the hallmark of Republican reasoning for far too long.

1. Awhhh, you so nice!
Sen. Barfbag takes on Sen. Sweetie! Sen. Sweetie (Durbin) wins again.

Honestly, could Barfbag be any more of an idiot and a simpleton. I have a hard time believing this guy graduated high school, never mid college and Law School. (University of 'My Dad was ACoach, love me, no doubt.)

What a moran! This is the most inept and stupid justification for the IRaq War imagineable. No wonder Barfie thought of it.

2. It's a good day, eh?
One of the office techies just wandered in with a huge grin on his face. There's been little enough to celebrate lately. I'll drink to Barfbag making an ass of himself on national tv (again), DeLay in an orange jumpsuit, and Frist and Rove soon to follow(?)

4. I think I'll go out to dinner tonight
and have a nice glass of wine. (I'll risk the migraine. This is worth it.)

And the SEC has announced that they will open an investigation into Frist's stock maneuvers. Woo Hoo!
