Three years later
Can't help but think about the invasion of Iraq on the 3rd anniversary of that awful decision by the Bush folks. You need no help from me concerning the 51 Wisconsin soldiers who have been killed, the tens of thousands of Iraqi deaths, the hatred of America as a result of this travesty.
What bothers me is the continuing silence of Congressional Democrats with notable exceptions Murtha, Feingold, Kucinich, and our friend, and Bob Fest keynote speaker, John Conyers. (John Edwards made it clear his support was a mistake. And the others? 2008 will be too late.)
What are the silent ones waiting for? Eighty percent of the people oppose our involvement; a similar percentage of Iraqis want us out. The world is laughing at us. Can't those who reside in D.C. get it?
Speaking of Democrats, guess who sits on the board of the bully American Transmission Co.? You know, the ATC that ran roughshod over people, towns, villages and counties for the extension cord from Duluth to Wausau. Yup. That ATC. Former Governor Tony Earl a partner at Quarles & Brady. Why.
Finally, why won't Herb Kohl support Russ on his motion to censure the president for breaking the law? And how can one explain the incredible response from Mark Dayton and others who condemned Russ, not Bush? The gods may not be crazy but the Democrats in the Senate are.
C'mon Herb. Why hold office if you can't stand for principle?
