I contacted the station, which is a rare thing for me to do, to vociferiously protest Goyette's stupid positions about the anti-terrorist actions the US was taking.
The biggest problem I've got with anti-war folks like Goyette is they treat it like it was just another domestic political position. Something you can endlessly argue about.
But war is different. Once committed to war (and the use of force WAS authorized by Congress - so no BS about the Congress not "declaring" war), any decent citizen should support the war 100%, or leave the country.
The effect on the families of service members killed ought to be enough to prevent these people from turning War into a political football.
But even more important, the effect on the enemey to encurage his continued resistance, and encuraging the enemey to believe that internal US politics could "win" the war for him, as it did for Vietnam, should make the actions of a radio guy like Goyette, treason.

I emailed the chickboss and asked her to put Tony Snow on in his place.

Yumpin' yiminy! Yust hold on a minute here.

The US Constitution is not BS.
The US Constitution does not enumerate powers to Congress to delgate its exclusive jurisdiction to the executive branch. Doing so would turn the legislative "branch" into a mere twig - something not ever intended by the founders. We can take joy in the fact that under President Bush, our armed forces have whupped ass all over the globe - but that does not mean we should turn a blind eye to the blatant trampling of the Constitution and the blurring of jurisdictional lines between the branches of government. We lament the fact that the judicial branch is arrogating unto itself legislative powers, with nary an effective protest from any quarter. Now, we see the executive plowing forward in the same manner - the Constitution be damned - but we go along because we happen to agree with the current President's politics. At some point in time, however, there will be hell to pay.
(BTW: Declaring War, per the US Constitution, would have eliminated all this fuss to begin with. So, why didn't we follow the Constitution in the first place?)
Dolt, it's all about the 'book'.
