I’d Like A Side Of Hypocrisy With My Terrorism, Please

From Holden:

When John Kerry portrayed terrorism as a law enforcement problem during a NY Times Magazine interview last October the Republicans jumped all over him. Then-Republican National Chairman Ed “The Weasel” Gillespie said:

Terrorism is not a law enforcement matter, as John Kerry repeatedly says. Terrorist activities are not like gambling. Terrorist activities are not like prostitution. And this demonstrates a disconcerting pre-September 11 mindset that will not make our country safer. And that is what we see relative to winning the war on terror and relative to Iraq.

While Dick “Whatta Dick!” Cheney

…told a few thousand Republican supporters that Kerry’s interpretation was “naive and dangerous, as was Senator Kerry’s reluctance earlier this year to call the war on terror an actual war.”

But today Onnesha Roychoudhuri found this little nugget of information on the Department of Fatherland Security’s FEMA website for children:

Terrorism is the use of force or violence against people or property to create fear and to get publicity for political causes. Terrorists are criminals and when they are caught they are put on trial.

That, my friends, is the sound of one flip flopping.
