Because what we don’t need more of is ridiculous, chest-thumping rhetoric:
Asked whether the American commanders on the scene were right in not attacking the Iranian boats, Mr Huckabee said he backed their decisions, before warning Iran: “Be prepared, first, to put your sights on the American vessel. And then be prepared that the next thing you see will be the gates of Hell, because that is exactly what you will see after that.”
Fred Thompson, the former Tennessee senator and Law & Order star who is banking all on victory in South Carolina to revive his campaign, said of the Iranian boat crews: “I think one more step and they would have been introduced to those virgins that they’re looking forward to seeing.” The crowd cheered.
i don’t understand the cheering part…actually, i choose not to.
I’m there with ya, buddy.
John Wayne would have pistol whipped each of these pansie politicians. Too bad there are no candidates who can take a pistol whip like a man.
But see, it’s ok, Huckster is a minister, so he’s authorized to send people to hell.
Yeah, that was pretty disgusting. Ron Paul had the only sane response to those warmongers, urging caution and pointing out that some of the matter is under question now. I think his comparison to Gulf of Tonkin was right on.
Of course later when I saw Frank Luntz’s “focus group” he showed their response to what he said and the graph was at zero. Surprise.
