Go see this abominable ad by Dennis Kucinich, using our war dead as agitprop in an ad claiming that the war in Iraq is solely for war profiteering.
Dennis Kucinich- Go to hell, you slimy little pissant.
And every Democrat who fails to disavow this ad and that man- you can go to hell, as well.
Can the parents of these soldiers sue Kucinich and the DNC? Can the companies sue? This is absolutely disgusting.
*** Update ***
Loser Atrios calls the ad ‘interesting’ and states that “the party could use a few more like him – we need to shore up our left flank a little bit – but that’s not the same thing as saying our party should be run by people like him.”
Heya Dave Neiwert- Why don’t you take a five minute break from claiming everyone in the GOP is either a fascist, a proto-fascist, a crypto-fascist, a fascist-enabler, tolerant of fascists, or indifferent to fascists, and examine some of the sick twerps in your little political hemisphere? How about a couple pages on the jerks that you no doubt embrace.
I think I am the angriest I have ever been at a political candidate and political party ever. These Democrats have NOTHING to talk about, except name-calling and rage. They stand around calling the President a miserable failure, calling all Republicans brownshirts, making one stupid accusation after another. How desperate are they- when the President flies to Iraq, serves chow to the troops, and for five seconds picks up the turkey centerpiece and states “I think I’ll take this one,” (or something to that effect), the Democrats talk about the turkey being a fraud for two weeks.
Meanwhile, standing in their midsts is the racist fraud Al Sharpton, who is responsible for ruining who knows how many lives, and not one Democrat is willing to say a bad thing about him. Can’t lose that 90% of the African American vote, now, can we?
Carol Moseley-Braun, an embezzler and fraud in her own right, not to mention a third rate intellect (yeah- Bush is the dumb one), is not only not laughed off stage, but they appear to take her seriously. Why no criticism of her sheer buffoonery? Guess we can’t lose the support of NOW.
Dennis Kucinich- well, I am not wasting any more of my breath on him.
Kerry- Kerry is disingenuous to the point that he makes Al Gore look candid and unscripted.
Oh- who cares. They are going to lose 45-48 states in the next election regardless of who they run. The fact that this is the face of the Democrat party is what is so sickening.

‘Moderate’ Oliver asks in the comments section: “Does it really say anything that’s untrue?”
Oliver’s question does more to highlight the intellectual and moral bankruptcy of the Democratic party than anything I can possibly say. And, remember- Oliver is a ‘moderate,’ and not the ‘left flank’ that Atrios thinks needs shored up.
OK- Let’s try this on Oliver. The very first statement is a lie. The ban was put in place in 1991, but only recently was enforced because of litigation. Is that enough lies for you- the very first statement? Do I need to go on?
How about I just look at the big picture- the OVERALL IMPLICATION of the ad, which is that the only reason Bush went to war was to make his buddies rich, and therefore, has murdered these soldiers in the pursuit of profit.
Do you agree with those statements?
Jeebus Oliver- you are a nice guy, but you really need to get over your knee-jerk anti-Bush response and your lapdog attitude towards the DNC and everything Democrat. Independent thinking does not mean putting your own personal spin or creating your own innovative defense for everything the DNC and the loony left do or say.

I was in the army for ten years, and all I can sit here and think is that if I had been killed and someone like Kucinich had used my name in a commercial like that I would haunt him for the rest of his life, which hopefully would be short and unpleasant. To think he would use my name, my rank, and my unit to disgrace me like that, to dishonor me and my service like that. I can’t think about this anymore. I am in a white rage.
*** Update #2 ***
Hi. My name is Oliver Willis, and we can add no-bid contracts, the military in general and the military policy regarding casualties, and Dick Cheney’s relationship to Halliburton to the long laundry list of things that I completely do not understand but have no problem talking about at great length.
My old advisor was right- a little bit of knowledge is worse than none at all.
*** Update #3 ***
Right on, Ricky.
*** Update #4 ***
I have calmed down some, and after some correspondence with someone, I agree that my language was wholly inappropriate throughout. Thus, there are ten or so fewer four letter words in this post than when it originally appeared. My apologies, andI will try not to become unhinged again any time soon.
