Today I had the displeasure of observing a rather inflamatory bumper sticker on a parked car
The sticker did have the intended effect; it pissed me off. Anyone can put whatever they want on a bumper sticker and obviously anyone will to sway the election, but this sentiment is something that has been echoed and spread by the Washington “elite”, ala Cheney and Hastert. I would simply love to question anyone who believes in this nonsesne — What exactly makes Kerry Bin Laden’s man?
- The fact that Kerry understands al Qaeda and Bin Laden had no ties to Iraq?
- The fact that Bush diverted resources and troops from Afghanistan to Iraq, effectively letting Bin Laden escape?
- The fact that Bush has spurred terrorist recruitment and bolstered al Qaeda’s ranks through the Iraqi invasion?
- The fact that Bush toppled a secular Middle Eastern government, which Bin Laden was actually at odds with?
If anyone is Bin Laden’s man, it would seem to be Bush. But I won’t bring myself down to that level because I attempt to respect civil discourse, something that some ultra-conservatives seem to have trouble with.
