I’m sure that there are some among you who’ll accuse me of bigotry for daring to suggest that blacks should not automatically be regarded as innocent victims simply because they say they are. The truth is that there are far better reasons for holding people in contempt than their race. And these reasons, more often than not, have to do with their values and their politics.

For instance, how dare people such as the Clintons, John Kerry and Ted Kennedy, condemn George Bush for taking out Saddam Hussein when all through the previous decade they, along with all the other leading Democrats, gave speeches in which they insisted that Hussein was hoarding weapons of mass destruction, developing nuclear devices and subsidizing terrorism? All of them insisted that regime change was long overdue, but then did nothing about it. Then, when Bush took action, they condemned him for it!

The way I see it, if you disagree with Bush’s actions in Iraq, that’s your business. But when, like Harry Reid, you first insist that we’ve lost the war, and follow that up by claiming the U.S. military has killed a million Iraqi citizens, knowing full well that you’re lying through your teeth, it leaves me wondering why it is that one perverted politician is forced to resign for playing footsie in a men’s room while another gets to continue being the majority leader of the U.S. Senate.
