Rep. John Conyers Jr has given the word new meaning and the rest of the [Dim]ocrats in lemming like fashion seem perfectly willing to follow him over the political cliff.
Not satisfied with his first efforts at sending Alcoa Aluminum’s Dow Jones numbers upward, he and like minded followers grabbed their Kool-Aid pitchers and retreated to the Capitol basement Thursday. Being in their Subterrainian Lair apparently didn’t shield them from the effects of moon rays, Karl Rove mind altering lasers, and black helicopters.
The Washington Post’s (of all places!) Dana Milbank relates the meeting called to order by Conyers to discuss the Downing Street Memo soon turned into a moonbat free for all.
The session took an awkward turn when witness Ray McGovern, a former intelligence analyst, declared that the United States went to war in Iraq for oil, Israel and military bases craved by administration “neocons” so “the United States and Israel could dominate that part of the world.” He said that Israel should not be considered an ally and that Bush was doing the bidding of Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon. “Israel is not allowed to be brought up in polite conversation,” McGovern said. “The last time I did this, the previous director of Central Intelligence called me anti-Semitic.” . . .
At Democratic headquarters, where an overflow crowd watched the hearing on television, activists handed out documents repeating two accusations — that an Israeli company had warning of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks and that there was an “insider trading scam” on 9/11 — that previously has been used to suggest Israel was behind the attacks. The event organizer, Democrats.com, distributed stickers saying “Bush lied/100,000 people died.” One man’s T-shirt proclaimed, “Whether you like Bush or not, he’s still an incompetent liar,” while a large poster of Uncle Sam announced: “Got kids? I want yours for cannon fodder.”
Conyers’s firm hand on the gavel could not prevent something of a free-for-all; at one point, a former State Department worker rose from the audience to propose criminal charges against Bush officials. Early in the hearing, somebody accidentally turned off the lights; later, a witness knocked down a flag. Matters were even worse at Democratic headquarters, where the C-SPAN feed ended after just an hour, causing the activists to groan and one to shout “Conspiracy!”
Not willing to accept any responsibility for the antics of others Conyers responded to the Milbank piece in a letter to the Post.
I write to express my profound disappointment with Dana Milbank’s June 17 report, “Democrats Play House to Rally Against the War,” which purports to describe a Democratic hearing I chaired in the Capitol yesterday. In sum, the piece cherry-picks some facts, manufactures others out of whole cloth, and does a disservice to some 30 members of Congress who persevered under difficult circumstances, not of our own making, to examine a very serious subject: whether the American people were deliberately misled in the lead up to war. The fact that this was the Post’s only coverage of this event makes the journalistic shortcomings in this piece even more egregious.
Well hot damn conyers (note no title or capitalization.), these idiots you’re trying to disassociate yourself from didn’t materialize out of thin air. Your “group of 30” were after all in the Capitol basement. A place, I assume, has some sort of security in place. If my assumption is correct how did the raving moonbat Ray McGovern get there? The obvious answer is YOU invited him and provided the proper security clearance for entrance to not only the Capital, but an area that the general public isn’t allowed.
As for the Washington Post not covering your meeting that should tell you something. The WaPo has spent the better part of the last 5 years shilling anything anti-Bush on it’s front pages. Any article remotely depicting Bush or the War on Terror in a positive light has been relegated to just before the comic pages and after the Obits.
Get IT! asshole… not even they care about your little soiree just under the earths crust. And as usual for [Dim]ocrats they got in that hole and kept digging.
As long as you’re down there digging you may as well join this group of assholes who want to ensure Saddam gets a fair trial.
