Larry Johnson has posted one of the nastiest comments about Karl Rove that I believe I have ever read.
Sacrificing Our Troops on the Altar of Republican Politics
byLarry C Johnson
"Leave it to the Porcine Draft Dodger--Karl Rove--to impugn the character of combat veterans. Can't blame him for trotting out the same playbook that worked so well in 2004 against the candidacy of John Kerry. If it worked once it should work again.
Of course I am referring to Karl's speech Tuesday night to Republicans in New Hampshire. According to a piece in Wednesday's Washington Post:
In a speech to New Hampshire Republican officials here Monday night, the White House deputy chief of staff attacked Democrats who have criticized the U.S. war effort in Iraq, such as Sen. John F. Kerry (Mass.) and Rep. John P. Murtha (Pa.), who he said advocate "cutting and running."
"They may be with you for the first shots," Rove said of such opponents. "But they're not going . . . to be with you for the tough battles."
Karl is a shameless bastard. Small wonder his mother killed herself. Once she discovered what a despicable soul she had spawned she apparently saw no other way out. It would be one thing if his vile tactics were simply mere smears of politicians like Kerry and Murtha. They are big boys and should be able to defend themselves quite ably against this turd."
This coming from a member of VIPS who encourages CIA staff to leak classified intelligence data if it will damage the Bush Administration. This coming from Val P's biggest fan. This coming from someone who backed up Jason Leopold's lie over at TruthOut.
Stop over at Larry's blog and let him know what you think about his assinine and nasty statement.
