Quick Hits - Sharpton, Haditha and Obama

Got some stuff brewing on the home front so here are some quick hits for today....

WaPo blasts Obama on his flip-flop on campaign financing...
Money Quote: "Fine. Politicians do what politicians need to do. But they ought to spare us the self-congratulatory back-patting while they're doing it. "

The Augusta GA Chronicle puts in a good word for the Haditha Marines and blasts Murtha for the lying sack of poo that he is...
With the criminal cases against the eight Marines crumbling, perhaps a lawsuit is the only way to get to the truth.
If the Marines were targeted as scapegoats to fulfill the scenario laid out by Murtha and the media, then no amount of apologies will suffice.

If some atrocity did happen, then why are the cases collapsing under their own weight?
And what obligation does the military and the public have to stand behind our troops when we put them in harm's way against an enemy that hides behind women and children?

Moreover, shouldn't our elected officials stand behind our troops in wartime until it's proven beyond a reasonable doubt that they weren't worthy of it?

You call someone a killer -- even in wartime -- you better be sure of it.

Caught this clip of Al Sharpton blaming everyone but his own greedy self for the IRS investigation during a period of insomnia at 5am this morning. Like all good lefties - it's Bush's fault.

For some background on Al's shakedown history, read the NY Post story from earlier this week. It's a doozy.
