Ya know, sometimes people let their politics go too far, and they make comments that are not only ridiculous, but callous and irresponsible. I found a link on Pejman Yousefzadeh's website to a press release issued by the St. Petersburg (Florida) Democratic Club. Here are a couple excerpts:

And then there's Rumsfeld who said of Iraq "We have our good days and our bad days. We should put this S.O.B. up against a wall and say "This is one of our bad days," and pull the trigger.

What?? I would think they are against the violence, but I guess they consider vigilantism acceptable.

They also call the Iraqi insurgents "patriots" and compare them to "the American revolutionaries." I would have to disagree with that as well. Think about it-the French helped us to gain our independence from Britain (while still holding territories in the Americas, I believe). Our battling the French as soon as Britain left would have been akin to the Iraqi insurgents antics.

I have trouble comprehending people that are so blinded by their beliefs that they could make such inflammatory statements. Well hell, maybe I've decided that this 'democratic' club is treasonous in comparing our forefathers to suicidal zealots and in their desires to assassinate a high ranking US official. When people make threats against the President, the reaction is fierce. Maybe these 'traitors' should feel the wrath of the govt for their desires to kill Rumsfeld?
