I love it how every time someone criticizes the Bush Administration for it’s failed and and corrupt policies, the right-wing alarmists claim that not following orders is either “unpatriotic” or “not supporting our troops” in order to quell dissent and frighten people into compliance:

DeLay called on Pelosi to “apologize for her irresponsible, dangerous rhetoric. She apparently is so caught up in partisan hatred for President Bush that her words are putting American lives at risk.”

Oh please. Bush himself is putting American lives at risk by 1-placing our troops where they shouldn’t be in Iraq, 2-not supporting our troops enough in Afghanistan so that they might have a chance of catching terrorist leaders, 3-pissing off every possible ally that we have so that we have to go it alone, and 4-letting terrorism run rampant against Americans under his watch, starting with the worst act of terrorism against Americans ever, 9/11, where he was asleep at the wheel and running all the way up to the recent kidnappings and bombings in Iraq that seem to get worse every day. Removing this administration from office would go a long way towards reducing the risk of danger against American lives.
