Distractions Abound

Before driving off to run errands, etc., let me ask you to take a look at how the MSM and now several of our illustrious Senators - McCain, Warner, Graham, Levin, and company are moving some important issues right off of the front pages just before election time. My guess is that none of these bastions for the rights of rusty-knife wielding murders are up for re-election in November of this year. While their delusionary goals may have merit at other times when we could sit around the table sipping our lattes and chatting, other matters do warrant our attention. We are led to believe the Senators are huddled there protecting the Geneva Conventions which I might add no terrorists and no illegal aliens signed on to. They are using up valuable time which is probably their point. And of course, they get face time with the camera and can look so very concerned. Our Pendleton 8 have disappeared from the headlines because they are young Marines and one Navy medic who got "fingered" by the enemy and are now under the brig in Camp Pendleton in California. To my knowledge, their lawyers aren't even allowed to visit the alleged "crime" scene. But the Senators are working to ensure that the terrorists will see classified information as well as the faces of our human assets (CIA, et al). Our borders are still open and the Minutemen are gearing up to hold their month-long vigil on our borders beginning in October. Step back a pace and take a look at the distractions. Yes, freedom of the press to sway, to detract, to keep us from the news. And they wonder why their share of viewers continues to decline. Hooray for bloggers!

Warner, unfortunately for me (VA) is our Senator. He writes canned letters in reply, and calls arabs (our dear arab friends).

McCain, on the other hand, is just another RINO (Republican in name only) just like the guy above. Matter of fact, both of them act like liberals, and that scares me.

Since Senator McCain and his buddies are protecting the Geneva Convention, does this mean that if American Soldiers and Marines are captured they won't be brutally tortured, mutilated, and murdered? Does this mean they won't have to do DNA testing to determine the identity of American POW's. Does this mean that their bodies will no longer hang from bridges and be set on fire?

Good logo, there bobf. We're dealing with barbarians and best not forget that all they know is the sword. I read an editorial today suggested McCain, because of his experiences should maybe not be involved in the discussion. Pretty personal and horrible.

I just take it personally when someone declares they they want to kill me. On the Senators - the Triumvirate + Colin - and the two girls, highminded debates are fine, but. I like when President Bush said, hey, if you don't give us some guidelines and Americans die because the guidelines are weak, well, don't come knocking on my door. I'm doing my job.
