Why? Not because of the gender and racebaiting. In perspective that's all noisy bullshit.
Why am I so pissed? Because our Fucking President just said he has sacrificed playing golf in honor of our troops in war. I'm not effing kidding.
For the first time, Bush revealed a personal way in which he has tried to acknowledge the sacrifice of soldiers and their families: He has given up golf.
“I don't want some mom whose son may have recently died to see the commander in chief playing golf,” he said. “I feel I owe it to the families to be in solidarity as best as I can with them. And I think playing golf during a war just sends the wrong signal.”
Bush said he made that decision after the August 2003 bombing of the United Nations headquarters in Baghdad, which killed Sergio Vieira de Mello, the top U.N. official in Iraq and the organization’s high commissioner for human rights.
“I remember when de Mello, who was at the U.N., got killed in Baghdad as a result of these murderers taking this good man's life,” he said. “I was playing golf — I think I was in central Texas — and they pulled me off the golf course and I said, ‘It's just not worth it anymore to do.’“
And this was my initial response on Wonkette when I read this:
You know, I didn't really comment on the Jenna wedding pictures post.
Because the entire time I kept thinking of all the fathers who will never be able to walk their daughters down the aisle. All the sons and daughters who will never be able to say "I Do." All the spouses never coming home to their families. All the mothers never seeing their sons have families.
Here we all are bantering about flag pins and verbal gaffes... This man has killed and maimed people.
I think the first question at the next debate should be "Would you institute an investigation on the current administration to possibly have them tried for either Treason or War Crimes?" Because I really think this needs to be explored.
See, this is why we need a united party. So that we can finally get down to business and do a final Coup de Grace on the Repubs and this Administration. Fuck delegate numbers, Superdelegates or electibility. Create a fucking MACHINE and then mow them down to right what has went terribly wrong.
Oh, and in case anyone was wondering: It would be highly irresponsible for me to vote with my vagina just like I shouldn't vote with my skin color. Why did I vote Obama? Because Hilary voted FOR the war. That's it. That's the reason why. All this other stuff post Super Tuesday was just inane.
People died for my vote. People are dying now. C'mon, People. Let's make it all worth it.
