Perfect Example

High on the list of hypocritical Republican and RWS™ dudgeon is the idea that, in trying KSM in civilian courts, Barack Hussein Obama is showing his weakness on terror. Weak on terror. Doesn't get it. Sending the wrong message. Whatever.

Far be from me the suggestion that there could be politics involved. Certainly, our America-loving, terror-tough minority party wouldn't be so crass as to switch 180ยบ on an issue of this importance.



And so it is that when Eric Holder, explaining his KSM decision, said that over 300 terrorists had already been tried and convicted in civilian courts, there was outrage aplenty. Even W's press secretary called it a falsehood among falsehoods.

Sen. Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.) insisted, flat out, that the number wasn't true. "If there were [300 convictions]," he said, "we would have heard about them." Senator Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) called the claim "unsubstantiated" and demanded to know where it came from. Former Bush press secretary Dana Perino was even blunter, deeming Holder's assertion baffling. "The 300 number is as false as false gets," she declared.

Oops. If it was, it was her boss's falsehoods.

I'm shocked. Shocked!

Republicans are dishonest and two-faced, playing politics even with national security???

Your winnings, sir.
