Yippie-Ki-Yay, Mother Sheehan

The Washington Post is the gift that just keeps on giving today, with the post Sympathetic Vibrations telling us what we already; liberals are bad for the morale of our soldiers, and the vast majority of Americans know it:

Democrats fumed last week at Vice President Cheney's suggestion that criticism of the administration's war policies was itself becoming a hindrance to the war effort. But a new poll indicates most Americans are sympathetic to Cheney's point.

Seventy percent of people surveyed said that criticism of the war by Democratic senators hurts troop morale -- with 44 percent saying morale is hurt "a lot," according to a poll taken by RT Strategies. Even self-identified Democrats agree: 55 percent believe criticism hurts morale, while 21 percent say it helps morale.

It gets worse for the Party of No:

Just three of 10 adults accept that Democrats are leveling criticism because they believe this will help U.S. efforts in Iraq. A majority believes the motive is really to "gain a partisan political advantage."

Roger Simon notices this shift, and also notices action star Bruce Willis is making a movie based upon Michael Yon's chronicaling of Deuce Four, First Battalion, 24th Infantry. My money is on Willis to personally play Deuce Four commander LTC Erik Kurilla.

When this pro-democracy, pro-military film comes out, opinions on the war will continue to swing back towards supporting our troops, and the liberal special interest groups and politicians that tried to undermine the War on Terror will be hoisted on their cowardly petards.

The DNC better hope that Willis doesn' get his movie out before the 2006 elections. If he does, the Democrats will be in for a world of hurt they assuredly deserve.

I suspect that some PC Leftist in Hollywood will quickly counter it with a movie more to their liking. Maybe Sean Penn as the CO of a company of Marines targeting innocent old ladies in Baghdad or some other nonsense.

Well, it is a little known fact that Penn was supposed to play the role made famous by Tom Hanks in Saving Private Ryan,but he was scrubbed when he kept sinking the landing craft as it launched. ;-)

LOL I remember wasn't that operation Red Plastic Cup off the south end of Normandy beach?

Good one, CY. Glad to see all that turkey hasn't affected your sense of humor.

I dream of the day charges of "Aiding and abbeting" are leveled at some ultra liberal Senator.
