Democrat Nancy Pelosi calls the Iraq War “a grotesque mistake” — Republicans call for her head on a platter.
Democrat Dick Durbin, quotes an FBI report on prisoner treatment at Gitmo, and then says: .”If I read this to you and did not tell you that it was an FBI agent describing what Americans had done to prisoners in their control, you would most certainly believe this must have been done by Nazis, Soviets in their gulags, or some mad regime _ Pol Pot or others _ that had no concern for human beings.” —Republicans go apeshit and demand an apology…WHICH THE SPINELESS MOTHERFUCKER GIVES, on the Senate Floor, teary-eyed.
Republican power-behind-the-throne Karl Rove, a man who was investigated during Watergate, but let go because the FBI had bigger fish to fry, says Wednesday: “Liberals saw the savagery of the 9/11 attacks and wanted to prepare indictments and offer therapy and understanding for our attackers. Conservatives saw the savagery of 9/11 and the attacks and prepared for war.”
The Democrats demand an apology…and the White House refuses, saying that his comments “were very accurate.”
I hope the Democrats remember this the next time that they apologize, or attack one of their own for making critical comments.
