Kerry: "Bush&Co didn't do their homework on Iraq" ; Johnson: "Kerry hates soldiers"

Charles Johnson is falling right into step today with the latest march against reason, this time issuing covert RNC press releases against John Kerry, a man who speaks his mind about what is going on in Iraq and won't be cowed into apologizing for his honesty by the wingnut-o-sphere.

Of course, if Kerry hadn't mentioned Iraq yesterday, neither would Charles. Because the I-word is dangerous for people like Charles, who won't take responsibility for supporting an administration that has time and again taken America down the wrong path.

Charles will never mention that over 100 American soldiers fell in Iraq over the past month.

Charles will never mention that the US troops are being humiliated there on a daily basis, that feeble attempts at 'reconstruction' have all but been abandoned.

Charles will never mention that for all the money pumped into this crusade _ and we're talking somewhere close to 1 trillion dollars (that's $1,000,000,000,000) _ it has created more terrorists, than it has removed.

But Charles will mention again and again anything that can be construed as criticism of the soldiers he himself has helped send to their doom, however contrived his logic is.

As Kerry said: "This is a textbook Republican campaign policy - try to change the topic." It may work on some voters. But what it doesn't work for is America. Every vote for the current administration is a vote against America's standing in the world; a vote against being able to pay for sensible education, housing and health policies at home; a vote for corporate greed and political corruption, for idiocy and blind faith.

Only a small minority of arms peddlers, spin-meisters, hate-mongers are profiting out of the fisco that is America in the 21st century. Millions more are suffering. Think about that, Charles, when you cash that check from Karl Rove. And do your homework.
