Perma-War and .....Walker???

The Spectacle brings interesting news.

Walker is reportedly putting together a campaign book and he’s having Marc Thiessen write it. I suppose it’s possible that Walker could choose to work with Thiessen without knowing about or agreeing with the latter’s extremely hawkish views on national security, but it seems unlikely. Put another way, if you were a politician interested positioning yourself “somewhere in between” Paul and Christie on national security issues, would you select an ardent defender of Bush-era torture methods as your ghostwriter? No, you wouldn’t.  (Larison), quoted at AmSpec

Oh, good.  Another one who believes that If Only We Could Implant Democracy, Whirled Peas!!

I joined the "to Hell with them" club a while back, when it became clear as crystal that neither Iraq nor Afghanistan will profit from our long-term adventures there.

While Scottie fantasizes about getting beamed into the Oval Office, your new pope takes positions on the gays that seem to conflict with your interpretation of Catholicism. Can we impeach this liberal popozo and overturn socialized medicine at the Vatican?

Congrats on the mention from Wiggy (first shout out in a few years ain'a?) proving your marketing potential in spite of your dystopian worldview. Clear Channel will cut a reduced rate for billboards on abortion and voting. Text me and I'll get you in touch with the right folks.

PS nice reach-around, we're sure Wiggy's smiling.

Il Papa said absolutely nothing new, either for Catholicism or for me.

That's because you are a terrible excuse for a Catholic.

Dad29 said...

Last I checked, "George", you were neither my priest NOR a Catholic.

George Mitchell said...

Doesn't matter. Any layman can see what a phony you are.

The truth hurts, doesn't it?

Dad29 said...

So far, you fake, nothing you've said bothers me in the least, because you have no idea what the hell you're talking about.

But that really drives those young chickies wild, doesn't it?
