It seems that the nutjobs on the Left just can’t handle good news, or is it perhaps that good news for the Iraqis and America is bad news for them? Here’s a sample of reactions from some Democrat nutjobs and what’s been percolating around the internet from the seedier side of liberalism:
From the Washington Times:
Some Democrats, breaking ranks from their leadership, today said the death of terrorist leader Abu Musab Zarqawi in Iraq was a stunt to divert attention from an unpopular and hopeless war.
“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.”
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…
“Bush’s idea of justice is bombs falling out of the sky?”
“Why is he dead again just now? I wonder if Karl’s getting indicted tomorrow…”
“Those pics of Abu Z look like they just thawed him out just in time for the elections.”
“Zarqawi was quite probably a psy ops job in the first place, so what does that make his “death”? …Keep your eyes on the prize….Haditha.”
“Just in time to hide the fact they’re trying to cut the estate tax for the uber wealthy”
“Yes the timing of Zarqawi’s death does seem too good for Bush to be true. It reeks of distraction politics. “
Democrats.com at 5:46 AM this morning reacting to the news of Zarqawi’s death:
We never know whether these announcements are true or not, but true or not this is a great opportunity for Democrats. We can now insist that we declare victory in Iraq and bring our troops home.
That last line was parroted by Democrat Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi in her news conference today.
