It’s too late for apologies; DeBolt should resign

It makes me want to throw up.

That was the blunt, emotional response of Rep. Larry Haler (R-Richland) when asked about the fake “Sex Offender Notification” postcards the state GOP mailed out to 25,000 families across the state… and he’s not the only Republican lawmaker expressing disgust with their party’s leadership. But even while several Republican legislators have quietly apologized to their colleagues across the aisle, House Minority Leader Richard DeBolt (R-Chehalis) not only remains unapologetic, he refuses to even accept responsibility for the actions of his caucus’s own PAC.

    “Bush has strong defenders, to be sure, and views of the country’s course divide on partisan lines. Chris DeCaro, 20, of Farmington, Mich., praises the president, particularly for his handling of terrorism. “He runs this country not as a politician but as a businessman who does things that need to be done,”

    The Iraqi general who served as a top lieutenant to Saddam Hussein said Thursday that he personally witnessed Osama bin Laden inspecting Iraqi air force facilities in Baghdad.

    Speaking in halting English, former Iraqi Gen. Georges Sada described the bin Laden visit to ABC Radio’s Sean Hannity.

    “I can make sure one thing – I know – I have seen by my eyes. It was in ’84, ’85, Osama bin Laden himself was coming to Iraqi air force headquarters.”

    Gen. Sada explained: “At that time he was looking for contracts to build air fields in Iraq.”

    The top Hussein lieutenant said he had no idea if the visit was part of any alliance between bin Laden and the Iraqi dictator.
    Bin Laden’s 1984 trip to Baghdad has never before been revealed, though a 1998 visit during which the al Qaeda chief allegedly met with Foreign Minister Tariq Aziz was reported by the Weekly Standard two years ago.

    In an interview that appeared in Thursday’s New York Sun, Gen. Sada confirmed that Saddam had spirited his weapons of mass destruction out of the country before the U.S. invaded in March 2003.

    “Saddam realized, this time, the Americans are coming,” he told the Sun. “They handed over the weapons of mass destruction to the Syrians.”

    JCH spews:

    I’ll remember that election evening for the rest of my life. It began with faulty interpretation of leaked poll data causing unprofessional blogs to predict a massive win by Kerry. Bush was just debarking Air Force one and they relayed to him the “bad news” “the polls” showed Kerry was going to take it.

    The Kerry camp (which had gathered at the outdoor venue in Boston) was into party-mode. The libs were basking in the glory of victory. They believed that victory was assured. They had put forward every smear and lie, twisted every fact, attacked every Bush action. They did everything they knew how to do to persuade, deceive, attack, slander. Liberal main stream media spent over a year in a nonstop assault on the Bush administration to help Kerry. Dan Rather was on cloud nine. CNN pranced around in front of their strange election board in fits of glee.

    But then, things started to shift. There was a whiff of something unexpected. The states weren’t turning out the way the partial poll data indicated. Some of the margins were much closer. Virginia would not swing Kerrys way. Florida remained fairly close and showed Bush with a lead. The dems looked for signs of hope. If Virginia took so long then Bush was weak. If Florida took so long then Kerry would win it in a close race…even if he had to go to court?

    And then, it turned. Virginia, Florida they fell into the Bush camp. With margins too wide to contest. It was clear now, something was not right with the partial data. Slowly, it dawned upon the nation that the Blogs were WRONG.

    Now this is perfect. The rain was falling on the Kerry people in Boston. They were cold, wet, & miserable. They clumped under umbrellas watching the media and they knew it was not going well. Maybe all those lawyers could somehow steal a close one in the court system? Kerry supporters were starting to attack the right. They sensed defeat and wanted to rage against it. Finally, Fox news called it first. They said Ohio is clearly not going to go for Kerry, we are calling Ohio for Bush. Anger, how DARE Fox news call Ohio when it’s clearly too close to call and will clearly go for Kerry? The libs felt It had to go for Kerry. Liberal media darlings declared that the most liberal counties in Ohio would push it over for Kerry, that Bush did not have a chance.

    It’s getting late. Dan Rather was now angry, shocked. He was taking backhanded slaps at the voters, at the president. Rather refused to call Ohio so he could help Kerry build a credible case in public that the election was stolen. If Kerry was going to win in the courts he first had to win in the court of public opinion. Rather and others would hold on in Ohio for as long as Kerry might need them. The republican party was kicking their party into high gear, Kerry supporters were wet, miserable, humbled. It was over, but they couldn’t accept it, Kerry would win, Kerry would steal it, Kerry could do anything because he’s politically correct, any trick to steal the election was ok by this crowd.

    The best was yet to come. When Kerry stood up and conceded defeat…women and men cried. Some shouted “No No”. Faces were frozen in anguish and horror. They had been radicalized, manipulated, totally emotionally vested in a Kerry win…they were in SHOCK. Some tore at their clothes, tears flowed everywhere…the great radical liberal pied piper has failed! Kerry won the debates how could he lose the election? George Bush had WON!!! Some sought mental treatment. One man traveled to ground zero and killed himself. Many more threatened to leave the country, to flee to Canada . So wrapped up were people in the rhetoric and emotional control of John Kerry that no act of anguish was too extreme. And the defeat was more than a personal defeat. Kerry dragged the DNC down in the gutter with him. So the country rejected them in congress. The dems lost more control in the house and the senate. It was total defeat! [What a great read!!!
