Just A Thought

I wonder why it is that so many who sputtered with righteous indignation about their perception of a slight to General Petraeus’ character in the MoveOn ad …

The Kid versus The General

… are the same people attacking a 12-year-old child over the State Children’s Health Insurance Program and saying that he’s “fair game”?

It is a puzzlement.

    The right attacks anyone that gets in their sights.
    Look what they have said about John Kerry, Max Cleland,Michael J, Fox,Richard Clark and Joe Wilson. We can expect anything from the likes of the Bushs,the Cheneys,Rush Limbaugh,Sean Hannity and Ann Coulter!

    The kid is not a highly decorated war hero, blah blah blah.

    As they used to say on SNL, that;s different.

  4. Darell, exactly. It’s like saying the “decorated war hero” can’t take a little name calling, but slagging a 12 year old kid? No problem!
