It's been quite a week for democrats like Boxer, Kennedy and Ted Turner. Barbara Boxer continued her assault on Condoleezza Rice and got Ted Kennedy to slam her as well. Ted Turner's complaint included a comparison of Fox News to the Third Reich. These three simply cannot come to grips with the fact that Bush has been re-elected and they are out of control with bitterness.
Democrats were unable to defeat a very vulnerable President Bush because they nominated a ticket that was too far to the left. Slightly toward center and dems would have walked away with the White House and, most likely, house and senate seats too. Now the dems making headlines are more radical than ever and they're hurting their party.
Barbara Boxer didn't win over any red-staters by assailing Secretary of State, Condoleezz Rice. And neither did Kennedy by calling her a liar and going on to call our military "part of the problem" in Iraq. (It's still unclear how much Scotch was involved). What can you say about Ted Turner making comparisons of Fox News to Nazis as his own CNN has been losing market share to Fox by the bucketload?
The remarks from Boxer and, especially, Kennedy coming just a few days before the election in Iraq have caused much speculation about the timing. Speculation, hell. It has all been timed to undermine the election and give insurgents (AKA, terrorists) an advantage. Democrats want the Iraqi election to be unsuccessful. Screw world peace.
