Last night, some Texas redneck drove his truck over a field of crosses set up to memorialize the 1800+ American GIs killed in Iraq. More likely, it was a couple of redneck kids who borrowed their drunk redneck father 's truck. This is Texas, where they drag African Americans behind cars to their death.
Then we have the total scum on TV and radio who are desperately sliming Cindy Sheehan. They say horrible things about her because they know that she is breaking through the media blackout, getting the word out, getting other parents and family members of Americans killed in Iraq to resonate with her words. These right wing media lowlifes know that their boy is falling faster and faster, that in the last two months, ten million Americans have decided that he IS a loser, and a bad leader, doing a bad job in Iraq, that Bush is not trustworthy.
Hell, we 've known that. Millions of us already knew that Bush stole two elections, knew when Colin Powell lied at the UN, knew when Bush lied to the American public, that there were no WMDs, that it was a fraud.
There 's a simple cure --not for the radio and TV whores who have trashed the American media. They need to be fired and replaced with real journalists who have ethical standards they work and live by. But most red, rightwing Americans have to grow up and wake up. They have to learn, like most grown men learn that fathers are not perfect, that the US is not perfect. They have to learn, like most mature men know that fathers can make mistakes and sometimes it is better to get guidance and help from others, that presidents make mistakes and even, that presidents need to be fired. They have to learn that America is not its president, not its wars, not its battles, that you can love America and disapprove of her president and her wars.
