9/11TM A New Low

On September 10, Keith Olbermann made a blistering “Special Comment” that accused the Republican party of making political hay out of the absolute terror of 9/11, and trade marking it to further their agenda.

At the 2004 Republican National Convention, they offered a “tribute” to 9/11, on prime-time television, when children were watching. Instead of a tribute, what people saw were the most horrifying videos of planes hitting the buildings and people jumping to their deaths, again opening up the deep wound. After doing that, Dick Cheney literally told people, if you didn’t vote for him, we would “get hit again.”

Yesterday, Sarah Palin sent her son Track off to war in Iraq, reminding him and the world that he was fighting against the people who hit us on 9/11, and delighted in it. This is in 2008, years after even President Bush said there was no connection between Iraq and 9/11.

She knows it’s a lie, so then why did she say it? Was it because this would galvanize patriotic Americans around her sacrifice? Because she still really thinks that there is a connection between Iraq and 9/11? No. She’s not that stupid. Here is the real reason; just as Bush shamelessly used our young soldiers as props for his propaganda, she is using her own son as a prop in order to get elected. This is the most reprehensible act I have ever witnessed, and each time I think I will no longer wonder at how low these people can go, each time they hit a new abysmal watermark, I am surprised.

Where is this country headed, when 50% of Americans give this “Dick Cheney in a dress” a positive approval rating? My fellow Americans, the time is very short, and our future decisions are extremely grave. This is not a beauty pageant contest. We must understand the urgency of this situation and shout out to our brothers and sisters from the mountaintops at the top of our lungs that we cannot allow these horrible people to continue to lie to us, use us, and kill us, and others from other countries that they are salivating to kill. Especially the new terrifying boogiemen, the “Islamofascists.” Psychologists say that the pleasure of killing is even greater than sex. I guess that’s why these people are so attached to their guns.

If Sarah Palin won’t hesitate to use her own son as a prop, then how will she treat yours? She won’t think twice, or “second guess” what anyone else says. In her own words, she “won’t even blink.”
