Quotes of the day

Thanks to Texas Rainmaker for drawing this to my attention. First up, Dingy Harry Reid (Dumbass-NV):
“This latest plot demonstrates the need for the Bush administration and the Congress to change course in Iraq and ensure that we are taking all the steps necessary to protect Americans at home and across the world.”
Um, Harry...the plot was broken up! Stuffed like a Thanksgiving turkey. Foiled like your party's electoral goals every two years. And we should "change course" so as to avoid further...uh, foiling of terror plots? Huh?

Next in the rotation, Jean-Francois Heinz-Kerry, rumored to have served in Vietnam:
This is a stark reminder that the war on terrorism is global, and extends far beyond Iraq to our very shores. (So far, so good. - Ed.) Terrorism is the biggest threat to Americans’ security, and this event exposes the misleading myth that we are fighting them over there so we don’t have to fight them here.
I'm no geography major, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express, so I think I'm qualified to state that Europe is considered by us Americans to be "over there"...oui? Ergo, exactly what "myth" is there that we're fighting them over there when "over there" is exactly where the terrorists were captured?

What would a "quote of the day" moron rotation be without Ted Kennedrunk?
Five years after 9/11, it is clear that our misguided policies are making America more hated in the world and making the war on terrorism harder to win.
Missing from Senator Bourbon's eloquent rhetoric is an explanation as to why we were so "hated in the world" from 1979 (the Iranian hostage crisis) all the way through 9/11/2001? Mr. Rainmaker accurately points out that the news has been showing the similarity between the foiled London terror attacks and that of the planned Operation Bojinka terrorist attack in know, during the Clinton administration? Was Senator Pickled maybe too hung over that day to call for a change in the Clinton administration's "misguided policies", or perhaps Senator Black Label did slur say something and I just can't find it anywhere?

Finally, the closer in the "quote of the day" bullpen is the collective moonbat blogosphere and their whacknut conspiracy theories:
And isn't it queer ("Not funny ha-ha, funny queer! Mmm-hmmm." Sorry, "Slingblade" flashback! - Ed.) that the emergency is declared within a day of Republican party leader Ken Mehlman launching an all-out offensive against Democrats following Joe Lieberman's loss in Connecticut, an offensive in which Mehlman, the White House and Republican operatives are claiming that Democrats no longer care about national security or the war on terror.
Yep, the whole "busted terror plot" thingee was a Rovian creation to take attention away from...a Connecticut Democratic Senate primary? Only in leftist la-la-land does that compute. I mean, maybe Rove isn't so smart after all; otherwise he'd have staged this whole terror bust before the CT Democratic Senate Primary to bury Ned Lamont, right?
