Whiplash Defeaticrats

Mike Taylor on Murtha and Pelosi and others who support and honor the military while debasing their efforts:

Just following some links this morning, I came across these Jack Murtha quotes gathered by Mickey Kaus (certainly no member of our vast right-wing conspiracy!). Please note that only John Kerry can contradict himself faster, and in fewer syllables, than can Jack Murtha:

Jack Murtha:

[T]here's a civil war going. We're caught in between a civil war right now. Our troops are the targets of the civil war. They're the only people that could have unified the various factions in Iraq. And they're unified against us. -- ABC's This Week, 12/4/05

[W]hy should I believe what the CIA says about what's happening in Iraq, that there's going to be a civil war? First of all, al Qaeda was wrong. It was wrong on the nuclear stuff. It was wrong on everything they have said over there. So why should I believe that there's going to be a civil war? -- same show, a few moments later.

and then...........................
[T]he military won a military victory. They got rid of Saddam Hussein. ...[snip] ... Now, it's got to be a political win. They have to win this politically. The Iraqis themselves. We'll stay there forever. The Iraqis are never going to say turn it over. We can't allow them to say when it's gonna turn it over.--This Week, 12/4/05

You're gonna see the Iraqis clamoring. Listen, anybody we support in Iraq loses the election. And so they're gonna be clamoring for us to get out. -- same show, a few moments later.

It makes you shake your head so fast that whiplash lawyers can hear your vertebrae cracking from their downtown offices. How do people like this GET elected and STAY elected? How do journalists (the self-appointed cognescenti of today) give these people any credence?

Oh, I forgot, they're Democrats. They don't need to make sense, they just need to wail on George W. Bush. That makes them all right.

I've seen Murtha a few times behind a podium and a few moments in interviews with the press. I don't think he is coherent, and I use that word in its most restricted definition (No need to tell Williams graduates the definition, but we U. of C. grads aren't as verbally facile: co-her-ent -- logically or aesthetically ordered or integrated.)

Here's my suspicion: Nancy Pelosi's strategy has been to line up Bush critics one after another, to take swings at the administration. Her strategy is that we'd all get tired of seeing her botox and rubber banded face and she wants to mix it up with other House Democrats she can convince to be as hard on Bush as they can.

It was simply Murtha's turn at the microphone. If reasonable people listen closely to un-edited interviews with this guy, you can't help but wonder "Is this the best that the Democrats can do? Put forward some doddering old man that can't hold a thought in his head long enough to make a consistent argument?".

Like the hit song "The Macarena" or the band "The Bay City Rollers", sometimes things take off for no apparent underlying reason. Jack Murtha is one of those one-hit wonders.

Or witless, as the case may be.

Taylor's Ameican-centric views leads him to underestimate the popularity of the Bay City Rollers (of Scottish derviation) in the UK. The band is not a one hit wonder. Not even in the US much less the UK.

Perhaps this Mick Taylor says such things since he likes a good spanking from time to time.

Wasn't Mick Taylor the 18-year old lead guitarist for the Stones? he palyed on the "Exile" album. No wonder he wants to put down the BCR! Got to scrape that shit right off your shoes.

It's Mike, btw.

No offense to the Scots, unconquerable as they have always been. But if you look at videos from back in the day, the Bay City Rollers' appeal still seems a mystery to me.

I wouldn't have picked them to win a high school talent contest, let alone get a record deal.

Sorry, just my opinion.

I'm just as mystified by the furor caused by Angelina Jolie. Her appeal escapes me as well.

Now, Charlize Theron, there's a girl with some appeal. And I'm not even partial to blondes.

Not sure what the spanking comment is about. Perhaps you were looking for an S&M site and mistakenly logged on here.

We do politics and economics.
