Long Island Republican Congressman devours untreated sewage, earns coveted "Coprophagic of the Week" title
Big news. The Times describes Republican strategists doubting "whether New York is the best place for the Republicans to be gathering this summer" and saying things like:
"I would assume that it has turned from a win-win to a maybe not… I don't think that it is all negative at this point, but it has the potential to turn. It's eroding slowly, and that's a real problem for them."Sharpton puppeteer and Florida recount riot-inciter Roger Stone adds: "The premise for coming to New York is no longer valid… Karl Rove's master stroke idea may turn out to be an unmitigated disaster. It has the potential to highlight an issue that may be a negative by the time he gets to the convention."
But here comes Bush turd-chugger Peter T. King, Long Island Republican, to set us all straight:
"This will be good for the president politically… It reminds us vividly how dangerous the world is."Indeed, the point that there is a connection between the plotting of 9/11 and Iraq certainly "seems to have been obscured by recent headlines," such as "recent headlines" that scream that there is and never was a connection between Saddam and Osama, not to mention "recent headlines" that tell us that Iraq is a disaster, or that Bush and his cronies negligently allowed 9/11 happen, or that Bush and his New York convention are doomed to utter repudiation and failure.
He said having the convention in New York will drive home a point that seems to have been obscured by recent headlines: why American forces are in Iraq. "This all began on Sept. 11."
