Mr. Noel Sheppard
Dear Mr. Sheppard,
Being a city lad, Ive always wanted to know just how a stuck pig sounds ... you know, when it squeals. Now, thanks to your insightful commentary today at Newsbusters.org, I have a pretty clear idea.
I especially liked it when you said this about yesterdays efforts to override Pres. Bushs veto of the SCHIP bill:
A United States Congressman [Rep. Peter Stark, D-Californiastan] stood on the floor of the House of Representatives on Thursday and said that kids are being sent to Iraq to get their heads blown off for the presidents amusement.
As if that wasnt bad enough, the three evening news programs of Americas top broadcast networks didnt feel this despicable act was important enough to share with the citizens of our nation.
Frankly, Im not sure which should anger you more.
Youre quite right; Im not sure which is worse: Committing treason by speaking the truth, or committing treason by not accusing Rep. Stark of committing treason when he spoke the truth. Either way, we need to protect our Dear Leader -- Gods Own President -- George W. Bush from evil, truthful comments that might hurt his feelings.
Now, I know that some folks would say Pres. Bush deserves all the criticism he gets, considering that his bungling (and misrepresentations ... ooops!) in Iraq have led to the deaths of some 3,869 U.S. troops (not to mention more than 27,000 wounded). But you wisely see that real patriots blindly support his Iraq policy, and that supporting the Troops means crushing dissent.
Bully for you.
Then, too, I must echo this heartfelt comment from todays column:
How have we gotten to such a low point in our history that elected officials feel comfortable making such statements about our president in the halls of Congress?
Sadly, I imagine our forefathers are crying with me wondering the very same thing.
Crying, indeed, sir. We are truly at a low point in our history when the back-stabbing traitors in the Democrat Party care more about insuring poor and middle income children than supporting an illegal, unnecessary and disastrous war.
All patriots cry with you today, my friend.
I am, however, mildly disappointed that you over looked the patriotic comments of Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa), who put the whole SCHIP debate into proper perspective:
[Rep. King] suggested an alternative meaning for the acronym SCHIP on the House floor: Socialized Clinton-style Hillarycare for Illegals and their Parents.
While you properly filleted Rep. Stark for his seditious antiwar comments, you missed an opportunity to promote Rep. Kings brilliant but subtle use of Clinton-bashing and racism ... all for the purpose of denying kids healthcare. Imagine had you combined all three:
Dissent Is Treason.
The Clintons Are The Root of All Evil.
We Must Stop Brown People From Coming to America.
Talk about hitting the trifecta!
Ah, well. Better luck next time, sir.
