A forum post this morning makes my point for me about the anniversary of the tragedies of Sept. 11, 2008.

I don’t think anyone has forgotten what happened … nor do I think anyone wants it to happen again … but I do think that some are quietly jubilant about it … cause it gives them an opportunity to spout on about the need for “national security.”

There wasn’t a major al-Qaida attack in 2003. Nor in 2004, 2005, 2006 or 2007. Manifestly, liberals thought there would be: They announced a standard of success that they expected Bush to fail.

His post then goes on to say that Sept. 11th is the reason we need Sarah Palin!

I’m sorry, but from my persepective, the crazy right-wing of the GOP have used a national tragedy as a means to an end … the end of freedom that is.

This will be one of my topics this morning on Reason.

  1. Scott, It’s Bratty Jenn here…I really think these neo-cons are taking the abstract to the concrete in a big, scary way…you have MOTM espousing about how W has saved the world, and, all of the McCain/Palin people carrying on about the “lipstick on a pig” remark….DID THESE CRITICS NEVER TAKE THE SATs????Do they NOT know what a freakin’ analogy is????Sarah Palin WOULD be the lipstick….duh!

    As an aside, there are a lot of anti-breed banning (ie Pit Bulls) advocates that found her “hockey mom” joke deplorable….so, there are many sides to all of these headlines, I s’pose…

  2. Maybe I shoulda explained further…there is a school of thought that she insulted Pit Bulls by comparing them to hockey moms….And that this is exactly the kind of “bad press” Pit Bulls don’t need…so I s’pose the tables are turned…
