Ever have one of those days? It’s been like that since before Christmas for me. One crisis after another, compounded by my home computer biting the dust. So here I am blogging from my phone, because I’m home sick with walking pneumonia. So, whatever I did karmically to deserve this, I’m frakking sorry, okay? Jeebus. Anyway, the phone doesn’t have an alt key, so only one category. Pretend this is also categorized Stupid Republican Tricks.
Now, I need to earn my keep around here. I am well and truly baffled by the persistence of the Republican dominance of the national security issue. The two most successful military endeavors of American history were presided over by Democrats. The Republicans, however, presided over the end of the Korean conflict (not exactly a win) and Vietnam (essentially a cut ‘n run, by Republican definitions). So why do pundits like Cokie Roberts still keep parroting the idea that it’s a winning issue for Republicans?
Because Democrats keep letting them. This latest “crisis” is a case in point. There have been two nearly identical incidents of attempted bombings of planes, one under Bush, one under Obama. Come on, Democrats, grow a pair, willya?
I’d go on, but my thumbs are tired. How do kids text so much?
