And Yet Another One! Is This a Landslide?

As recently as November, the über-conservative Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, owned by the notoriously right-wing multi-millionaire Richard Mellon Scaife (the so-called "funding father of the right"), said Jack Murtha was wrong, we had to "stay the course", etc., in Iraq.

Now, in a 180-degree shift, the paper's editorial of Jan 17 says "The War in Iraq: Time to Move On".

Time to move on. This is another conservative source that's turned on Baby Doc. Like a shark smelling blood in the water, Scaife is operating from anything but altruistic instincts, but he can see -- as can everyone with half a brain -- that the Bush Maladministration is in deep trouble, and if Republicans don't do everything they can to try to distance themselves from the imploding neocons, it will spell doom at the polls.

Well, that's too fucking bad. Our response ought to be -- will be -- to defeat their sorry asses in November, put some Democrats with balls (like the Band of Brothers) into Congress, and get rid of the fascist bastards who have tried to hijack our country.

Here is another one.

James Webb, Vietnam veteran.
You know, the best selling author. Marine Platoon and Company Commander. Medals, Purple Hearts. Secretary of the Navy under Ronald Reagan. FORMER REPUBLICAN.

He is now a democrat running against George Allen. (got to get thru the primary first). Very much in favor of destroying Osama and the Taliban. Very much AGAINST going into Iraq.

This article doesn't represent a turnaround, it's the new neo-con talking point. Move on? move on into Iran. If they think Iraq is a mess, wait until they get a load of the next quagmire. Out of the frying pan into the fire.
