Democrats Eat Babies!

Oh, Moonie Times, you crazy GOP water-carriers.

"Democrats call Zarqawi killing a stunt" screams a headline over a brief web article posted today.

My goodness, really? How many said that? A stunt? Well tell me the news.

"This is just to cover Bush's [rear] so he doesn't have to answer" for Iraqi civilians being killed by the U.S. military and his own sagging poll numbers, said Rep. Pete Stark, California Democrat. "Iraq is still a mess -- get out."
Well, that doesn't seem like a very temperate remark (let's forget that this is a fragment and it's unclear what "This" is referring to, and the paraphrase is actually longer than the quote). But a stunt? Don't see that. Maybe Kucinich can help out.

Rep. Dennis J. Kucinich, Ohio Democrat, said Zarqawi was a small part of "a growing anti-American insurgency" and that it's time to get out.

"We're there for all the wrong reasons," Mr. Kucinich said.

Okaaay. So we have exactly two Democrats. One of whom says "This is just to cover Bush's [rear] so he doesn't have to answer..." and the other who says, well, he doesn't say anything even remotely close to the assertion that the death of Zarqawi is a stunt.

I'm not apologizing for Stark's remarks (which are probably stupid), but to characterize it as a "stunt" is, I think wildly inappropriate. But par for the course for the Moonies. [via a panting, I assume, Kathryn Jean Lopez]
