Prepare Now to Fight Back Against Right Winger Smears Against Iraq Veterans Running for Congress
At least 10 veterans of the Iraq war are running for Congress, all but one as Democrats, in what amounts to an open challenge to both President George W. Bush's policies in Iraq and the traditional Republican advantage on national security issues.
Democrats, prepare now to battle, your truth and dignity to their viciousness and cowardice, the disciples of Karl Rove who are even now loading their silver bullets to assassinate the characters of the veterans who run as Democrats for Congress.
They will do at least one of three things to each Democratic veteran:
1. Dig like a colonoscopy into their past to find something that they can exaggerate into character flaws to frighten the electorate.
2. Turn the veteran/candidate into a mindless dupe of the socialist leftist elites. That's what they did to Cindy Sheehan. Is it true? Just listen to Cindy Sheehan. She's suffered. She's smart. She speaks for herself. So do these candidates.
3. Lie, lie, lie. The right wing smear machines calls Rove a genius because they recognize lies work on people who don't read and stay on top of current events.
Prepare now to dig in, fight back, and don't let their shit-slinging stick. Not only for these candidates, but in honor of all those candidates smeared by these cowardly right-wing hooligans, and for the future candidates who need us to set a new precedent of decency.
Politics is hardball. That's always been true. But right-wingers play bean ball.
