Thank you Colin Powell
I know there is complete dislike on DU for Powell's actions as SOS under Bush. At least, he has shown the courage to come out now and help to prevent the national disaster of John McCain and Sarah Palin taking the White House. McCain and Palin should be viewed as co-running mates. If McCain is elected she will become president by all odds. I think Powell is smart enough to realize this and what it would mean for the country. We can salute Powell for speaking up because there are so many Republicans who know the same facts that Powell spelled out yet are staying silent.

2. I loved when he said that there is nothing wrong with being a Muslim
and that the Palin pick put the nail in the coffin for him regarding McCain. It was beautiful.

3. Doing it again now...
Hammering Bachmann for calling Obama a socialist. Going after them for calling him a terrorist, etc. Oh man, it's great.

7. Perfect excuse not to prosecute any of the Bush war criminals!
Powell is just covering his own ass. He's still a mass murderer and needs to go to the gallows.

8. Thank you Colin Powell.
Now let's hear it from some other moderately sane Republicans.

Maybe this will give some of the chicken shit Republicans who hate the kind of politics McCain is practicing but are afraid to speak out the courage to do so.

Sometimes all it takes is one big name to get the ball rolling.

This endorsement combined with that Bachmann outrage of Friday might just get some of them off their asses. If they don't condemn McCain's campaign now, they will go down the toilet too.

Time to ante up Republicans. Which side are you on? Do you support McCarthyism and the politics of division? History and the voters of America are watching to see what you will do.
