The Cowardly Cons are out in full force these days. They think that they're so macho, but they are quite the opposite. The Cowardly Cons are the ones who sent our troops into Iraq looking for non-existent Weapons of Mass Destruction, and falsely concocted non-existent connections between Saddam Hussein and Al Quaida, and between Saddam Hussein and 9-11.
Then, when the Iraq war was underway, the Cowardly Cons made sure there was no draft and that the USA had an all-volunteer army. Accordingly, this war was fought mostly by poor young American boys looking for a career or an education, not to get killed in an unprovoked war. The Cowardly Cons who sent these boys into war didn't have to worry. Their boys were not going to be drafted. Nor were they going to volunteer. How many members of the Bush administration had their sons serving in the military during the Iraq War?
By way of contrast, President Roosevelt's sons were in the military during World War II and they all had distinguished service records. That's a very key distinction between liberal leaders and Cowardly Cons.
Now, the Cowardly Cons are back again. First, they had their Tea Parties (which sounds like what they should be doing -- with crumpets) to protest against Obama's Stimulus Package, which is now starting to pull us out of the economic crisis that Obama inherited.
Next, they are boisterously protesting at Democratic Town Hall meetings, and disrupting them, in opposition to Obama's Medical Care proposals. These are the people who say they believe in "Free Speech", but only for their side. They believe in free speech if that means flooding the radio air waves with Right-Wing shills, flacks and propagandists -- Limbaugh, Hannity, O'Reilly, Beck, Savage, Coulter, etc., ad nauseum. But not when it comes to hearing the other side.
As Nancy Pelosi said, there is indeed something "Un-American" about drowning out the opposition. Of course, the Cowardly Cons don't believe that they are "Un-American." However, they do continue to show their true color: Yellow.
