Saw this on
Hilarious, especially if you’ve ever played Champions:
So now BOTH chambers of Congress have passed a resolution praising the patriotism Gen. David Petraeus, the commander of U.S. forces in Iraq, and condemning a MoveOn.org ad that referred to Petraeus as “General Betray Us.”
I wish I was joking. The resolutions passed with a huge number of Democrats voting in favor, too — despite past Ads from Right-Wing groups that directly attacked the patriotism of Senators John Kerry (remember the “Swift Boat” ads, you brain-dead motherfuckers?) and Max Cleland (who lost both legs and an arm in Vietnam, but was still portrayed as unpatriotic and “soft on terror” by folks like Ann Coulter). No official statements of outrage in those cases, but a single ad from a liberal group, saying that Petraeus was going to present skewed facts (which, it turned out, he did)…
…And our “elected representatives” enact resolutions condemning the constitutionally protected expression of private citizens.
