My friend Ari wrote the following and asked me to post it here. Since I'm a nice guy (and since he paid me 10 bucks), I'm going to do it. Enjoy!
Looking at the breakdown below, you'll notice that ALL of the most powerful senators, the committee chairs and those running for president (sans chickens like Obama and Biden who couldn't bother to vote; some leadership therein!) voted to condemn our military's top commander---someone so moderate and fair-minded he had full bipartisan support upon promotion---and thus, America's military and America itself. The hijacking of my former party by the RADICAL "hate America first" left is complete. Bold for powerful folks/pres. candidates in the Leftist Regime, italics for so-called "Jews" who basically voted against America & Israel's well-being like Presidents Clinton and Carter so often did.

And as Ken Burns' "The War" explains over and over and over, mistakes are ALWAYS made in War, often on a far greater scale than soldiers being picked off by cowardly roadside bombs from Muslim animals in Iraq.
Further, as an honest WWII journalist once said, “Only the soldier really lives the war. The journalist does not -- war happens inside a man -- and that is why, in a certain sense, you and your sons from the war will be forever strangers. If, by the miracles of art and genius, in later years two or three among them can open their hearts and the right words come, then perhaps we shall all know a little of what it was like -- and we shall know then that all the present speakers and writers hardly touched the story.”
And any sane person would agree. Those who do not are named Anderson Cooper, Katie Couric, Michael Moore and are listed atop---and want to be president of the USA? A disaster. It will take a selfish, ignorant, hate-filled "American" to vote Democrat in 2008. But alas, some people never change or grow up.
At some point in life one wakes up and takes a stand. Many did so after 9-11. Others did so, but for a day or two, then returned to standing AGAINST the country that has made them as prosperous as the liberal elite are. The families who supply our heroic troops are 90-95% Republican but those who bash and castigate our military and its leaders are wealthy by and large and Democrat. Is something wrong here? It's far worse than treason. In the olden days, a rope would have been implemented long ago. But now, Iranian Nazis are cheered and given more freedom in America's largest city (with the world's largest Jewish population) than our president, our border security and our military.
