Of Pirates, Easter, and Unpatriotic Republicans …..

I don’t know what you did this Easter Sunday ….. went to an Easter egg hunt with your kids, to Easter service at your church, worked, watched unpatriotic Republicans spewing hateful diatribes on TV about President Obama’s handling of the pirate standoff, and then later ending up with egg on their faces, or executing President Obama’s orders and killing the pirates holding an American captain and freeing him, at pretty much exactly the same time, said Republicans were all over the morning shows dismissing Obama’s handling of the situation.

It was indeed a sad sight to see the likes of Newt Gingrich, Glenn Beck et al, and the entire  FOX  “News”  network engaging in what can only be described as bordering unpatriotic behavior at the very same time when a rescue mission under very dangerous circumstances was under way.  It never ceases to amaze me how brazen Republicans are, criticizing an in the end very successful national security operation beforehand, when these people don’t have an inch of credibility left after all the national security disasters committed by Republican administrations, culminating of course in the disastrous Iraq War.

The leader of the pack, once again, seems to be Newt Gingrich, who back in the day was also the leader of the pack pushing the impeachment of  President Clinton over lying about sex, while at the same time, having an extramarital affair with a staffer himself.  Now he parlays that  ‘credibility’  on his even lesser credibility on national security matters. Here’s a little advice for Newt Gingrich and his gang, brought to them by one of their heroes:

‘Better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to speak out and remove all doubt.’  — Abraham Lincoln

Wise words from a wise man ….. I suggest, they frame it and put it on the fridge as a daily reminder, not to go out of their way to make fools of themselves.  We already know you are ….. no need to prove it on a daily basis ….. !!  🙂
