Senator Boxer Asking the Right Questions
Senator Boxer to Condoleesa Rice regarding sending more troops to Iraq :
Who pays the price? I’m not going to pay a personal price. My kids are too old and my grandchild is too young. You’re not going to pay a particular price, as I understand it, with an immediate family. So who pays the price? The American military and their families. And I just want to bring us back to that fact.
The wacko jackals response: Accuse Senator Boxer of being anti-feminist. Brilliant.
I went to a rough West Oakland elementary school, and believe me I know playground political warfare. Fight with everything you have, especially if you started it and you're losing. Call names, talk about their mamas, twist what they say and throw it back at them. Try to make it look like the other person started the fight so you can claim the high road as the victim. Maintain, quite vocally, that you're not afraid of them, but if you think you're going to get your butt beat—run--backwards without turning around.
There were no cute little Condoleesas at my school. A Tony Snow would have stood out like, well...snow in a town that gets lots of fog but has never seen any of the white stuff. But had they been there, they would have ruled the playground with a viciousness that would have left us breathless.
How dare they and the rest of the White House's wacko jackals attempt to twist Senator Boxer's very legitimate question, “Who pays the price?” into a backhanded slap at the Secretary of State's lifestyle. I know they don't want to go there. I want an answer from the President's Condiment, too, "Who Pays?"
Senator Boxer was not impugning the Secretary of State's life choices. I know that and the wacko jackals know that. Senator Boxer was asking a question that needs to be asked and and that the Secretary and White House needs to answer. A question that needs to be kept front and center.
Who pays the price? Condi doesn't. Bush doesn't. None of the White House's baggy, old, men engorged on baby's blood do. Bush has two children old enough to enlist for service in Iraq. Where are they? The American people must sacrifice—where is his? If Great Britain's Prince Harry can go to Iraq, why can't the Bush princesses?
Weapons of Mass Destruction are in the White House, but they are only effective against the Truth.
