The lunatic fringe of the Democratic Party is indeed a Dead Man Walking, grasping at straws to hold himself up.
You have no further to look than Alberto Gonzalez, the nominee for Attorney General.
-He tried to push the limits of what can be done to interrogate Al Queda detainees-
The President says, "Gentlemen, we need to get intelligence from these detainees. We do not want to violate the law. Mr. Gonzalez, research this and get back to me with what can we do to these detainees without violating the law."
The fact is that most of us realize the war is not a war on terror, but a war on Islamofacism. The Baath Party was started by the National Socialist Party of Germany, who are better known by their nickname, Nazis. Most of us would be okay with Huey interrogations. Saves a lot of time and effort. We also know that we cannot surrender to them, they will cut your head off if you do. Most of us are willing to accept the challenge to fight to the death. I might point out, that it does not matter if you accept the challenge. They will fight to your death.
Seems to me Alberto Gonzalez did what the Commander in Chief asked, gave him the limits.
There is no second place winner in a gunfight. It doesn't matter how you feel about yourself, what matters is who is standing when it is over.
Fight's on, Fight's on.
