Senator Foghorn Leghorn calls Americans infidels

US Senator Ernest Hollings (D-SC) wrote a guest editorial for the State newspaper in Columbia, SC this week, where he referred to Americans as infidels.

In the war against terrorism, we’ve given the terrorists a cause and created more terrorism. Even though Saddam is gone, the majority of the Iraqi people want us gone. We have proven ourselves “infidels.” With more than 800 GIs killed, 5,000 maimed for life and a cost of $200 billion, come now the generals in command, both Richard Myers and John Abizaid, saying we can’t win.

Heretofore, the world looked to the United States to do the right thing. No more. The United States has lost its moral authority.

Here's one of our lawmakers. Here's a man that citizens of this nation are supposed to look to for leadership, and for encouragement when times are low. Here's a man who is supposed to be an encouragement to our soldiers when they have questions in their minds. A man who is supposed to support our fighting men and women unconditionally. He's certainly supposed to provide leadership for those soldiers without allowing partisan concerns to get in the way.

Instead, here's a man who doesn't care about those same fighting forces. He's more concerend with fostering his hatred for George W. Bush and the Administration. So much for "leadership" from one of the senior members of the Senate.

Just damn.

Cheney should have saved some of what he gave Leahy for Foghorn. They're both horses asses.

Calling Hollings a horse's ass is an insult to equine anuses. He should have been run out of politics 50 years ago.

Hollings is a remnant from the days that no southern Dem could win the primary without the endorsement of the Klu Klux Klan. He's the one that put the Stars and Bars flag over the State Capitol. He hasn't changed a bit, only his rhetoric has.
