This Can't Be Good News For Shrubby . . .

Or Joementum, for that matter. Here is an Op-Ed from the Fayetteville (NC) Observer slamming Joementum and Darth Cheney for their speeches last week equating Lamont's primary victory as a big win for Osama bin Forgotten.

"Something else verges on terrifying too. The reactions by some of our politicians were a chilling reminder of their willingness to use our fear to further their own agenda. . . Politicians can, and should, debate our strategy against terrorists and the course of the war in Iraq. But questioning each other’s patriotism or resolve against terrorists should be out of bounds. It is unnecessary and divisive."

There's more, so enjoy.

Why is it a big deal that a newspaper from a relatively small town in North Carolina prints something like this? I'm glad you asked. It's a big deal, because Fayetteville is where Fort Bragg is. And Fort Bragg is just about the largest army base in the entire country. Virtually the entire town of Fayetteville exists to service the residents of the army base. In Fayetteville, North Carolina, they live, love and bleed OD green. Fort Bragg is the home of the 82nd Airborne (the Screaming Eagles of WWII fame). And unless I'm much mistaken, the 82nd Airborne has seen more than its fair share of casualties in Iraq.

So when the local paper sits up and calls bullshit on The Biggus Dickus (thanks, Annti), and says, "The voters know the difference between our Iraq war problems and the overall effort against terror. Politicians would be wise to remember that[]", well, it's worth taking note of.

I think that I just heard Commander Codpiece shit his britches.
