Surrendercrats get Green Zone slimed? Oh my!

Don Surber:

The Washington Post headline caught the self-pity of a couple of antiwar congressmen: “Lawmakers Describe ‘Being Slimed in the Green Zone’ “

If they were “slimed,” it was with their own words. As these congressmen visited Iraq, so they can go back home and declare the Surge is lost, someone circulated their past quotes.

Democratic Congresswoman Ellen Tauscher of California had said: “Our forces are caught in the middle of an escalating sectarian conflict in Iraq, with no end in sight.”

She dared to protest. She whined to the Washington Post: “This is beyond parsing. This is being slimed in the Green Zone.”

Truth hurts. Is she saying she lied when she said: “Our forces are caught in the middle of an escalating sectarian conflict in Iraq, with no end in sight”? Is she saying she is ashamed that she said: “Our forces are caught in the middle of an escalating sectarian conflict in Iraq, with no end in sight”? Is she saying she was misquoted when she said: “Our forces are caught in the middle of an escalating sectarian conflict in Iraq, with no end in sight”?

Slimed, eh?

Then there is Democratic Congressman Jim Moran of Virginia, who had said: “This has been the worst foreign policy fiasco in American history.”

He, too, protested having his words come back to haunbt him, complaining: “Spin City. The Iraqis and the Americans were all singing from the same song sheet, and it was deliberately manipulated.”

No, what is being spun is this “slimed” crapola.

...

Here is the original story. The anti war pukes feel dissed. Good. They do not deserve respect for their desperation for defeat for political gain. Moran has been one of the worst of the worst among Democrats who want to lose the war.
