Mass. senators calling for Sec. Rumsfeld's resignation

-- If the Bay State senators could hang an ornament on the Pentagon Christmas tree, it would be pink.

A pink slip, that is, for Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld.

Democratic Senators Edward Kennedy and John Kerry called for Rumsfeld's resignation last week, following a speech at John Hopkins University in which Rumsfeld defended the war in Iraq and critiqued the mainstream media's war coverage.

"We've arrived at a strange time in this country where the worst about America and our military seems to so quickly be taken as truth by the press," Rumsfeld said.

As an example, Rumsfeld later pointed to stories revealing a Pentagon program that reportedly paid a contractor to pay Iraqi newspapers to print positive stories about the U.S. effort in Iraq. The stories apparently were written by the contractors and published as news.

"That story has been pounded in the media," Rumsfeld said. "And the problem is the story goes out all over the world, over and over and over again. And we're still trying to find out what the facts are."

The senators, though, seemed more apt to believe the press than Rumsfeld.

"We need a fresh start at the Pentagon for the good of American troops, so brave Americans stop paying the terrible price of this defense secretary's mistakes," Kerry said.

That's a good argument for his staying.

Note Kerry's last line in the snippet. Translation: It's time to run away from Iraq. What a putz.

I am so glad that "Chubby Chops" and "Candle-Face(Laura's term) weren't born in time for the American Revolution.

Are we sure that date is right?

Seems that we have heard this, I don't know, like 4,567,333 times before BY THE SAME GUYS.

Yeah, that date must be a misprint.

Prairiebreeze is calling for the immediate resignations of BOTH Massachusettes senators too.

My suggestion has much more basis and reasoning than theirs does.

Ah but Bill Kristol has been after Rummy's head going on a year +, and guess who Bill and the liberals want installed at SecDef, none other than Joe Lieberman.

These people are going way beyond White Flag and are actively engaged in propaganda war against the U.S. war effort.

Why doesn't Rummy respond by asking, "Who cares what a French Traitor and a fat, drunken, murdering communist think about anything?"

We need a fresh start in the Senate. We should start by removing the two Senators from Massachusetts. Terrorists would probably protest the removal of their two biggest cheerleaders.
