    Democrats Vow to Fight On After Zarqawi Loss

    By Scott Ott, Editor-in-Chief, ScrappleFace.com

    (2006-06-09) — As Blackberry devices and cell phones on Capitol Hill hummed with news of the death of terrorist leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi yesterday, Congressional Democrats vowed that despite the loss they would fight on in “the war on the war on terror.”

    “Zarqawi will be missed because he put a human face on the futility of the illegal U.S. occupation of Iraq,” said one unnamed lawmaker, who assured a reporter that “Democrats are still optimistic. We’re still looking for the silver lining.”

    Rep. John Murtha, D-PA, a former Marine and vocal critic of the military occupation of Iraq, immediately denounced “the Zarqawi massacre” and suggested that the F-16 pilot who dropped the bombs had snapped under pressure and murdered the al Qaeda leader “in cold blood.”

    Sen. Arlen Specter, R-PA, demanded an explanation of the secret intelligence gathering techniques and surveillance used to find Mr. Zarqawi.
    “I want to give the president an opportunity to explain the program to the Congress and to assure the American people that nobody’s civil rights were violated,” said Sen. Specter.

    Meanwhile, Democrat National Committee Chairman Howard Dean and former presidential candidate Al Gore observed a moment of silence as they heard of the passing of Mr. Zarqawi, a fellow Internet pioneer.

    I would like to see an actual quote from Murtha, Specter or any other named democrat that reflects what is posted here. Do you have any credible link, Carpro?

    They wouldn't be Republicans, if they didn't lie about what democrats think.

    Sad, but true. One of the reasons the public wants to remove the ruling party.

    Anyone want to bet that the guy disparaging Murtha's patriotism, wouldn't wet his pants if he even saw what Murtha went through for his country?

    And democrats wouldn't be demmocrats if they didn't lie about what Republicans think.

    It's a level playing field.

    Barbarian suggests:

    Let's see... what was that earlier...?

    Barbarian, earlier:

    Don't know what made me think of that, just now, you did misrepresent what I said.

    Are you sure about that?
    I have never seen you take an opposing view against the POTUS.
    You certainly aren't a Democrat, and you don't offer any commments that would suggest that you are independent.

    Hmmmmm......
