Republicans exploit 9/11 for cheap politcal gain
If you were watching ABC last night, you got a double dose of smog from the smokestacks of the Right Wing Hate Machine. As Syracuse University's Robert J Thompson noted on Monday's "News Hour" episode, the docudrama "the Path to 9/11" had a very particular (anti-Clinton) point of view that was disguised as a legitimate documentary. The screenwriter of this bit of red-state yellow journalism, Cyrus Nowrasteh, is a personal friend of Rush Limbaugh.
And if that was not enough; on an aniversary that should be sacred, the Decider himself (GW Bush) broke in the middle of the movie to deliver a speech that took swipes at polititians who want to change course in the Iraq war. So blatent was W's political oportunism that Harry Reid complained about it on the floor of the Senate.
This blog had, by request of the moderator, a "day of silence" yesterday on 9/11/06. Wouldn't it be nice if the people running this country had the same sense of whats right and wrong. Walsh must have no shame at all, to vote 90% of the time with these monsters. People, we need a change.
