Stop Your Blabbing and Do Something!
Sen. George Felix Allen posted on his Web site that he is deeply concerned about Americans stranded in Lebanon.
Hey, goober, it is White House policies in the Middle East that have gotten the world into this unholy mess; and as every nation immediately went into alert to escort their citizens to safety, Bush was too busy giving unwanted back rubs to the German chancellor and worrying about the swiftest route home to give the thousands of poor saps stuck in Lebanon any thought.
The apple doesn't fall too far from the tree. So when asked about the boiling Middle East, and what the United States should do about it, Allen spouts a Bush talking point, of course.
"Any country, particularly Israel, has the right to defend itself and to protect its citizens as we do," Sen. George Allen, R-Va., said in the Fox interview.Hell, even Sen. Trent Lott at least offers some intelligent thought on the subject.
Hmmm, Howling Latina sees there are no upcoming events listed on Junior's site (yep, another junior with a smiley cowboy face and straw for a brain).
Sen. Trent Lott, R-Miss., agreed [with Democrats] that there was a need for hands-on diplomacy."
At some point, I would suspect that high-level people would be going in there. Some are already going in," Lott said on CNN's "Late Edition."
Hopefully, Allen's brushing up on his current events and how to answer the onslaught of questions about what he's been up to for the last 5 1/2 years as soldiers died, GOPers lied, American world opinion plummeted, the administration circumvented the law, deficits skyrocketed, wages stagnated, college tuition went up as the federal government raised student loan interest rates for the middle class, and his brethren in Congress failed to hold one single person accountable,
Gotta give it to Felix, though; straight out of the Rove playbook of making your weakness your strong point, Allen has the cheek to post on his Web site that he's been fighting, yes, fighting for the renewal of the Voting Rights Act.
Guess on an election year, a pesky 20 percent African-American constituency would give a well-documented racist gamy pause.
