Way to support the troops, Zombie Breath!

McBlogger reminded me of this item on HuffPo.

The Huffington Post has learned that Sen. John Cornyn, R-TX, will introduce a sense of the Senate resolution Thursday criticizing's recent advertisement in the New York Times. The ad called into question the credibility of Lt. General David Petraeus, suggesting the pseudonym "Betray Us."

Cornyn's amendment proclaims that the general "deserves the full support of the Senate." The MoveOn advertisement, Cornyn's legislation states, not only "impugns the honor and integrity of General Petraeus," but "all the members of the United State Armed forces."

Perhaps in hopes of gaining support for his amendment, Cornyn's measure would also "reaffirm support for all the men and women of the United States Armed Forces."

On Wednesday, Cornyn showed his support for the troops by voting to sustain a GOP filibuster of the Webb Amendment, which would have required combat soldiers to receive equal time Stateside in between combat tours in Bush's War. "Too much luxury for our fighting men and women!" sez the Endless War Caucus. "And we don't have enough troops so we'd either have to bring back the draft or withdraw!"

Dear, dear. Why make those hard choices when you can send the same troops back over and over again, systematically wrecking the Army in the process?

For someone who is so concerned about the honor and integrity of a single general, I'm amazed that Cornyn has never introduced a bill condemning the delegates to the 2004 Republican National Convention who thought it cute to adorn themselves in Purple Heart bandaids, as modeled by this doughy fuck:

Strange, isn't it, that human garbage like John Cornyn and the rest of his despicable cohort can get so angered about word play on the name of a general, but when it comes to actual soldiers being hit by actual flying bits of metal, war is just a fucking joke.

Actually, we kind of agree with the WaPo on this one... bitching and moaning about what a surrogate says is kind of dumb. Unless that surrogate happens to hit on something accurately. Which Gen. Clark did. The WaPo, of course,... [Read More]
