Don Young, Arrest, Exile, or Hang?

What's That Smell? Hypocrisy, Yet Again, Mr. Young

One of the right's well sold memes since the beginning of the Iraq debacle has been that a person couldn't question or criticize a damn thing that Dubya's Admin has done without being a traitor. And God forbid someone call the Iraq Mess a mess or point out how utterly F.U.B.A.R. the situation is - because then the same crowd would pillory you for 'not supporting the troops.'

The irony, of course, being that that is exactly what the Republicans did during the Clinton era, when they totally shat on him (and the troops if their assertions today were valid then) during the Kosovo situation. Nome, Home has an excellent post about Don Young's embarassing performance today trotting out that "disagreement with Dubya = sabotage of the war effort" nonsense.

Geez, Don, I guess you forget about that press release you issued, titled, interestingly enough, "Rep. Young Supports U.S. Troops, Not Kosovo Mission."
