Skip to comments.The Joe Wilson Op-Ed
Posted on 03/22/2006 3:46:52 PM PST by Guy in Bumblebee Suit
Hi, longtime lurker and firsttime poster. To the point: I'm looking for the editorial or op-ed that Joe Wilson wrote in, I think, the LA Times not long after the 2003 State of the Union address where he supports the administration.
If my memory serves me, Wilson was in support of the administration until he was hired by the Kerry campaign (April, 2004, maybe?).
For some reason, the whole Wilson-Plame crap is an ongoing argument in my family, and I'm trying to get my facts in line. If anyone can help me, I'd be grateful.
To diverse on a brief, biographic, introductory vanity, I'm a strong conservative in a family the considers the Democratic Party too far to the right. The (maternal) family has always been politically active, and from my earliest days I was exposed to The Daily World, Soviet Life, and other publications and members from the ACP and CPUSA. I do not hide this aspect of my life and offer it here in the interest of disclosure. I am not another David Horowitz, though, because I never accepted the premise of communism/socialism, it always seemed like a bad imitation of true religion. I know who the left really is, what the left really wants, and how they think. And it scares the hell out of me.
My father was conservative but has taken a strong left turn in the last few years.
I am pro-life, pro-gun, pro-private property rights and pro-God. I try to be a good Christian but I know in my heart that I am a sinner. I am happily married to a supportive wife and we have beautiful children. I am a Marine combat veteran and I am one tough SOB. I am a self-employed renovation contractor and I love debate.
And I want my daughters to grow up in a world where they will never have to wear a Burkha or Berkinstocks.
I live in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, and am available for activism/support.
That's who I am, and I believe I have a strong community in Free Republic. Now that I'm posting, you'll hear from me often.
What's wrong with Birkenstocks?
Sorry, I can not help.
You have a thread for Joe "Liar" Wilson by chance?
Where do you live in Bucks?
Peach has great archives. Let's see if she can help.
Look at the bottom of the litter box.
Birkenstocks are fine. I don't like bumblebee suits.
Women who wear them never have to worry about getting pregnant.
Peach is on vacation and witout internet for the next week or so. She won't answer your ping.
I pinged Backhoe for you, if you dont get a reply ask him via FReepmail.
He is one of our resident sleuths and catalogs information.
Peach, Miss marple and a few others might also be able to help you.
But it's reprinted on this "Progressive" website: http://www.commondreams.org/views03/0706-02.htm
"What's wrong with Birkenstocks?"
They're kind of like the red shoes, except when you put a pair of Birkenstocks on, you can't stop voting for the Clintons.
If I remember correctly, uncle Joe wrote his hit piece on Bush in May/June 2003... Novak wrote his column exposing Val in July 2003.

Actually Lyin' Joe was originally against the war because he feared massive US causualties from chemical weapons.
Nice (quick!) work.
bookmk ping for #15 & #16
Joe Wilson definitely started his campaign against the Bush administration by May 2003 when he attended the "Senate Democratic Policy Committee" meetings and spewed his first version of b.s. to Nicholas Kristof of the NY Times. His fictional version of history is discussed (without attribution by name) by Kristof around May 6, 2003 and by Walter Pincus of the WaPo around June 12, 2003. Wilson is a lying sack-of-XXXX who has been pursuing a filthy treasonous campaign against our government. If you go through posts and links under a search for keyword 'CIALEAK' you will find lots and lots of goodies.
