Human Shields

I'm discovering a trend in the Bushie playbook: Use the womenfolk as shields and/or collateral.

The first sign of this was on January 11, when Martha-Ann Alito broke down in tears while her husband was being questioned by the Judiciary Committee, which led to the inevitable characterization of the Democrats on the Committee as being 'vicious.'

Eleven days later, a letter from the father of payola specialist Jack Abramoff appears in a newspaper. He says that George Clooney's remarks about Abramoff made his 12-year-old granddaughter cry.

And now, we find out that the US Army has been arresting the wives of suspected terrorists. They were using them as 'leverage,' in order to get the men to come forth.

This is wrong on so many levels.

That's because shrubco, neocons and their right wing apologists are fucking traitorous cowards, nothing less. They are disgusting and should all be strung up for their crimes.

OK, I feel better now.

Alito's wife - Maybe if her husbad wasn't a fascist pig the truth would not have made her cry.

Abramoff's grandkid - Maybe if he wasn't an influence peddling criminal in league with traitors the truth would not have made her cry.

Wingnuts make baby Jesus cry so why not a few of their relatives too.

I'm looking forward to the day when a woman runs for president and her husband cries on national television.

p.s. Mrs. Alito broke down while Samuel was being questioned by a Republican. Most likely it was due to general stress, not vicious interrogation tactics.
