Abu Musab al-Zarqawi Is...

Dead. Dead. Dead.

Update:Perhaps not too surprisingly, some Democrats are taking this as an opportunity to retreat, and Texas Rainmaker notes that the hive--well, mind isn't quite the right word--at the Democratic Underground is already in overdrive.

The Left will certainly be upset about this. Then again, maybe I'm being too harsh. They will praise Bush and our military for a job well done. Oh wait, never mind.

If we would have elected Kerry in '04 and cut and run like his cohorts would have convinced him to, this thug would still be alive somewhere.

Go Team!

NPR isn't even excited over it. They report this great news but then shift over to "...but we still can't find BinLaden." sheesh.

Real comments from Daily Kos:

“Bush’s idea of justice is bombs falling out of the sky?”

“Why is he dead again just now? I wonder if Karl’s getting indicted tomorrow…”

“Those pics of Abu Z look like they just thawed him out just in time for the elections.”

“Zarqawi was quite probably a psy ops job in the first place, so what does that make his “death”? …Keep your eyes on the prize….Haditha.”

“Just in time to hide the fact they’re trying to cut the estate tax for the uber wealthy”

“Yes the timing of Zarqawi’s death does seem too good for Bush to be true. It reeks of distraction politics. ”

I live in the SF Bay Area - the local liberal leaning talk radio station did not even have the news on this mornings "breaking news" reports. The lead story for them - The race for Governor. Next - Alleged Voting abnormalities. Next - 3 or 4 districts, reporters re-capping what measures won/lost etc.

NOTHING about Zarqawi. Amazing. I suspected right then that the antiwar left would spin it negatively.

Great site! Just stumbled on it. Just sit back and let the libs scatter and chatter and watch as their ship continues to sink. New Orleans will be clean as a whistle in a year. The Iraqi and Afghani conflict will turn around when, not if, but when we wipe the floor with Osama and his wacky bunch. And then, finally, the economy will remain strong. Then, Mit Romney will run and bury Billary Clinton and any other pretender to the throne under a pile of red states. Libs and stippers might not make the world a better place, but they sure make it entertaining.

"strippers", not stippers. There, now my crazy tirade will make cents, uh, sense.

The spinning on the left has absolutely no traction. They didn't have their mudder tires on and quickly sunk in up to the hubs. Now they need a tow to get out, but they forgot their winch. Ahhhhhhhh....
