Speaking of Useless Idiots - Ted Rall Does It Again

America got a birds eye view of the real Democratic Party this week - from Ted's off-the-wall rant on the floor of the Senate to Cindy Sheehan playing kissy-face with Chavez. Well one of my least favorite Liberal Lunatics is again in full-tilt hate against the US military. Here's my piece from

"What do you get when you cross a so-called editorial cartoonist with a person that hates the Military, Republicans, President Bush and America? If you answered “Ted Rall”, you hit the nail on the head.

In his latest attempt at cartooning, Rall depicts two members of the military preparing for a remote missile launch. One of the soldiers voices concern about the innocent people that will be killed by the missile attack. The soldier with his finger on the button offers excuses for killing innocents such as their proximity to the bad guys. The same soldier then remarks that “those people don’t like us anyway. The more we kill the better.” In the final frame, Rall depicts two men with an obvious Middle Eastern appearance and turbans. One has a cell phone to his ear while the other voices concern about killing innocent people.

There is only one interpretation of Rall’s editorial – the US Military is no different than the terrorists that detonate IED’s or commit suicide bombings. Rall has previously described the drone missile attack in Pakistan “assassination by joystick” so he is just perpetuating his little theory. Once again, in the little brain of a useful idiot, the American Military is the bad guy.

The very same military Rall loves to portray as cold-blooded killers are the ones that have given the ultimate sacrifice so Rall can publish his little drawings. Every time Rall denigrates the military, he demonstrates his lack of respect of the sacrifices of every single US soldier and veteran. Free speech is a gift from our founding Fathers and is protected by the US military. If Ted Rall does not appreciate that gift, maybe we should ask for it back. "

Actually we should be grateful for such stupidity and public hate as it just empowers Republicans to keep up the fight.

I admire your enthusiasm and patriotism, but I worry that your attitude toward liberals is more hurtful than helpful. It has become all too common for people to take sides politically, as if rooting for a football team. Unfortunately, this only undermines the democratic process by pitting people against each other, no matter who is actually right. Inevitably, effective communication breaks down and meaningful discussion of issues suffers. I see the same thing happening on both sides of the spectrum. Everyone is so caught up in the thrill of victory over one another to see how contemptuous it all is to our democracy.

You're kiddin', right?

"Taking sides politically" is the essence of the democractic process. The object is to have your ideas prevail - especially when you think the other side is so tragically, horribly wrong that the implementation of their policies could mean the death of us all.

Not being mean here, but grow up and open your eyes. Politics is a contact sport. And in a war, the object is to win.
