Nice Friends You've Got There

When it comes to the subject of the Iraq War, bloggers on the right support the military, the general concept (if not necessarily the execution) of establishing democracy in Iraq, media accountability, and defeating Islamic terrorism.

Bloggers on the left want bloggers on the rightŚa lot of themŚto go to Iraq, without escort, presumably on the hope that theyŚweŚwill get killed.

Character. Some folks have it...

Update: Michelle Malkin prepares to journey to Iraq, and invites AP's Executive Editor Kathleen Carroll to come along with her. I can only imagine how quickly our "friends" on the Left will respond with veilled blog posts and comments hoping for Michelle's demise.

Do they ever wonder why everyone - especially people in the military - hate them? You know, the old "Why do they hate us?" question?

For MM to ask Carroll to come along is hilarious. I wonder what Kathleen will do? Will she accept the challenge to go on a search for the missing Captain and Jamil? Or will she once again insist that JH is a great source?

Trying to get your arms around leftist principles is like trying to chase a butterfly in your teeth with a tweezers.

To say that their principles are a bit "fluid" is extreme irony. To say that they have principles of convenience, has taken on axiomatic standing.

If Sandy Burglar steals National Archive documents and destroys them, it produces a collective yawn. Let a Bush Administration official take more than 30 seconds to retrieve a document...Oliver Stone begins the treatment for his next crackpot conspiracy theory.

If the NY Times, Reuters, AP, LA Times, (see Patterico's Pontifications), CNN, any of the leftist Ministry of Media fake photographs, dummy up documents, invent sources, creat phony stories out of whole cloth, give away military secrets, distort the news in FAVOR of the enemy, advance enemy propaganda....well, it's all in the nature of telling the "story"'s the "message" that's important. Who cares if it's filled with lies and misrepresentations, photoshopped, cropped, slopped together phony pictures, documents that are phony on their face, sources that don't exist...we leftists are rooting AGAINST, if that message comes out through phony sources AND WORKS...all the better.

Yet, let Fox News, for instance get one item slightly wrong...and there are crazed and angry cries for a Congressional oversight committee.

Don't get me wrong...I LOVE the fact that leftists are so transparent and mindless. So puerile and intractable. It makes them so much easier to locate and makes their arguments so putrid and easy to defeat.

I just wish that the Baby Gloomers who lead them would be overtaken by something a little more challenging. Like, perhaps...someone who actually thought for themselves. Burned the playbook and the hymnal and started over.

As it is, the left is simply ...lame.

Good comment, Bleachers. Of course, your examples could go on for pages. Extremely frustrating.
