Jim Webb, Virginia’s new Democrat Senator-elect, has a son serving in Iraq. At a private White House reception, President Bush asked Webb, “How’s your boy?” Webb’s response was: “I’d like to get them out of Iraq.” “That’s not what I asked,” said Bush. “How’s your boy?” Webb retorted: “That’s between my boy and me.” A source told “The Hill” newspaper that Webb was so angered he was “tempted to slug” the President.
So much for the poppycock Democrats have been selling about civility and bipartisanship. You can expect the same hate-inspired classlessness that defined them in the minority as they become the majority.
On the other hand, if Senator Webb’s son had a better career, why, he wouldn’t even be in Iraq — that’s what Charlie Rangel said on Fox News last weekend. He said, “If a young fellow has an option of having a decent career or joining the Army to fight in Iraq, you can bet your life [he wouldn’t]… be in Iraq.” The Army is not a decent career, see? Only the stupid get stuck in Iraq! We’ve heard it before, Charlie — thanks.
Moving on: Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. In a letter to the American people, [he] says that he hopes Bush got the midterm election message. He warns his fellow Democrats that they too will “be held to account by the people and by history,” and — like Senator Webb — urges the troops be brought home quickly. Ahmadinejad also complained about the cost of the war, because “many victims of Katrina continue to suffer, and countless Americans continue to live in poverty and homelessness.” (Iran’s leader said this!)
The ’08 campaign thus begins, folks, the same way Democrats ended the ’06 race — with Ahmadinejad as their spokesman!
