Democrats and the War on Terror

Rusty Shackleford thinks we might yet stave off defeat at the hands of the jihadis even with Nancy Pelosi as Speaker: “We won the Cold War with little help from the Democrats. We can win this one too.”

In related news, in a discussion with John Amato over dinner, he revealed that the Democrats don’t actually hate America. You heard it here first.

    Rusty can pound sand with his incompetence and corruption enabling bs! I noticed a distinct lack of fighting men on the rethug side of the matchp this year…because a..holes like rusty love a fighting man in the sand and blood but not speaking truth to power!

    Matt,

    I think it is time for your lithium. Sheesh.

    What Amato didn’t tell you is that part of our plan is to offer Texas to al-Qaeda in a land for peace swap. Oh, and then we pass the Kill All Puppies Act.

    Remember how when Bush won re-election all of those Dems said they were going to Canada?

    Well, where is the Republican equivalent?

    Poland? Australia? Sweden? Japan?

    I can’t think of any other nations led by “conservatives”–other than the non-democratic places like Russia or Saudi Arabia.

  7. madmatt chill. If you are still this wound up after last nights victory, it may be a personal problem.

    JPE,

    As a Texan I endorse that plan. Just sell it to AQ and we will take care of the rest. But let me get ready with my camera when they tell the Texas ladies they have to wear a Burkha.

  8. Anderson says:

    Well, where is the Republican equivalent?

    Silly Triumph! Iraq!

  9. Jamie says:

    For crying out loud. The Democrats were just as fiercely against communism as the Republicans? Truman? JFK? Come on, people.

    Unlike liberal bedwetters GOP-eers, Libertarians and Indies actually like America.
