With some exceptions, I usually don’t check out what the denizens of Democratic Underground are saying on any given subject. Several individuals on my blogroll do like making deserved fun of these people. It definitely makes for some decent blog fodder. However, reading that much a**hattery, moonbattery and general Chatty Cathery is too painful and frightening for my tender feelings. Okay, to be blunt, I just don’t like getting that PO’d in one sitting. (Commander Will, you will stop reading my mind this instant!)
But, today, I couldn’t resist going there to find out what DU had to say about Moamar Khaddafi and his ability to figure out which way the wind was blowing.
DemonFighterLives: We will be stuck with this regime if the Dems. luck doesn't change. How can everything always turn up roses for these *&^%# ers.
R Hickey: This sounds like something that the Bush administration asked Kadafi to do for them, in order to lend credibility to Bush's prior claims of WMD in Iraq.
TheStranger: … invaded Iraq and killed 500 young Americans and tens of thousands of Iraqi citizens, when there were no weapons of mass destruction there -- they were in LIBYA?!?!
How in the f**k is this supposed to make the Chimp (sorry again) look good?There are some voices of reason there and good on ‘em. I’d better get their posts down here for the record before they are disappeared.
Bush the puppeteer: Yeah, since Libya always does whatever we say...
Could it be that yanking Saddam out of a hole may have had a certain emotional impact on Kadafi and other aging dictators on our naughty list?
I really don't see the bad news in this, guys... sorry.
Frisco: Great news indeed! It's only bad for those who claim that this doesn't make us any safer.
Flightful: Unlike Saddam, Ghadafi knows when to shut up. Losing family members to an air strike can have that effect. Also, he may be a tyrant he isn't stupid like Saddam- he knows better than to get into a confrontation that he can't win.
There. That wasn’t so bad.
