WaPo's Cohen And Howell Share Same CerebrumWhat a complete damned tool:
The e-mails pulse in my queue, emanating raw hatred. This spells trouble -- not for Bush or, in 2008, the next GOP presidential candidate, but for Democrats. The anger festering on the Democratic left will be taken out on the Democratic middle. (Watch out, Hillary!)
Cohen might be right about the Democratic left getting their rock throwing arm ready to bust open some skulls within our Democratic middle, especially as the next few months wear on (at least, that's the way I see it now that Aravosis recently asked the "Do We Shut Up Now" question). But, what totally ticks me off about this is the flagant tossing about of Hillary Clinton's name. Don't you just love how the mainsteam media and their worthless pundits get to decide way ahead of time who is going to run and who isn't? To Cohen, Hillary has not only tossed her hat in a Presidential race that's still two years down the road but has also walked away with the Iowa and New Hampshire primaries already -- long before Diebold's cronies have a chance to blink. It's as if out voting is but a mere formality to confirm the sanctimony of Cohen and all the rest of Carnacs within the MSM.
I have seen this anger before -- back in the Vietnam War era. That's when the antiwar wing of the Democratic Party helped elect Richard Nixon. In this way, they managed to prolong the very war they so hated.
Hate to piss in Cohen's fruitloops but that won't be happening again. Why? Because no ammount of spin and redefinition of the Iraq clusterfuck on the part of the GOP can save their asses this November or two Novembers from now for the simple fact that this war has two contexts that won't allow it -- Vietnam itself and "ownership society". Granted, the GOP can argue that the Democrats voted for the War, too, just like they trout out Bill Clinton supporting the notion of WMDs in Iraq but all that shit has been rendered inoperative. Of course, "inoperative" is one of the many "Journalistically Correct" synonyms for "LIE" ...
The hatred is back. I know it's only words now appearing on my computer screen ...
Proof positive Cohen needs to get out more, specifically out of the D.C. city limits ...
... but the words are so angry, so roiled with rage, that they are the functional equivalent of rocks once so furiously hurled during antiwar demonstrations. I can appreciate some of it. Institution after institution failed America -- the presidency, Congress and the press.
And since Cohen is a member of the press, he's a failure right alongside them.
They all endorsed a war to rid Iraq of what it did not have. Now, though, that gullibility is being matched by war critics who are so hyped on their own sanctimony that they will obliterate distinctions, punishing their friends for apostasy and, by so doing, aiding their enemies.
No, our Democrats endorsed a war to rid themselves of being tarred and feathered as "siding with the enemy" or "hating America" or "not supporting our troops" or whatever empty platitude the gibbering ghouls that control all of Washington and the mainstream media could sucker the people with. What alot of good it did -- whenever Joe Klein isn't doing their dirty work for them, the Republicans to this day continue the same old and tired slime attacks and Cohen here just proves that he, like WaPo "ombudsman" Howell, are their complicit enablers. A round of applause is in order for demonstrating yet again just how well it pays to be connected to the GOP -- by wallet and by brainstem.
