Warning: Blogging Angry

I honestly can not remember the last time I've woken up in such a shitty mood.

Seriously, I'm extremely easy-going, too forgiving, and rarely blow-up. Well, I'm blowing up today. I'll spare you the details.

Rather, I'll just displace a little anger into the political arena for a moment or two.

Did anyone catch the Moms with a Mission interview on Fox News this morning? I tell you, I was slack-jawed with awe and wonder at the sheer stupidity of the argument.

I get why Mrs. John Edwards went on a crusade to find military moms who would support John Kerry. That almost makes sense. So she found eight, and they said their piece, and that's fine.

But what Mrs. Edwards decided to make the center-point of her argument was how horrible it was that the Administration sent soldiers overseas without proper armor....Were we aware how many casualties could have been avoided with proper armor? Were we aware that many soldiers were having to spend $400 of their own money to buy armor? This needs to change.


Too bad John Kerry voted AGAINST the bill that would have put armor on our boys!


Maybe someone in the Kerry camp should tell her to lay off that argument, before she's publicly called on it. (I can't help but wonder if her husband had ANY idea that those things were about to come out of mouth on national TV. I can hear it now, "Honey? Whose side are you on anyway?")

Sounds like Mrs doesn't even know what Mr stands for!

I can't believe you expected the actual facts from the Kerry camp. Also she married a lawyer and we know that lawyers and truth live on different planets.

I'm just floored that she made such a poorly researched move! (I can't imagine it being intentional.) That topic should have been completely avoided, had she been coached in the slightest.

The "back stories" on these individuals would be interesting to find; given their lack of fact on the "personal armor" situation in Iraq. ...

Notwithstanding, some of the contractors for the body armor didn't meet MILSPEC and was withdrawn/returned for repair/upgrade/replacement. Another lesser known fact is that the contractor(s) have been overwhelmed by orders since 911 for both standing contracts and those initiated by LEO's within the United States. ...

The PLUS SIZED Mrs. Edwards may not be able to extricate her head from her bodacious arse?... These MIL-Wives stand along side the New Jerkey Women of 911; IMHO...


Blog On!

Her husband, Babyface, voted against it as well.
