Word to the Spineless Democrats: How to stand up to Bush and stop the Insanity

The President wants a surge while saner minds want to reverse this trend

I’m not sure what bothers me more: that President Bush plans on sending thousands more troops into harm’s way in Iraq, where they will be nothing more than additional targets for suicide bombers and IED’s while making not a whit of difference in stopping the brutal civil war; or the fact that spineless Democrats lack the courage to shut off the money spigot that allows this insanity to continue.

Since my only child is among those already in the maelstrom of Central Iraq (for his second tour), I’ve decided to give the Democrats a politically palatable solution to the Iraq disaster:

* Tell the President that he can have the money for the additional troops as soon as he comes up with a tax cut to repeal to pay for it. President Bush will have to decide between continuing his futile war policy or taking money from his uber rich buddies.

* Tell the President that he can send more troops to Baghdad, but only after they have all become fluent in Arabic and knowledgeable about Islamic teachings and culture.

* Tell the President that before more troops go to Baghdad, we need to send an advance scout team comprised of brave armchair warriors Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Bill O’Reilly to scope out Baghdad outside the Green Zone- while wearing American flag hats and jackets, and driving a rental car with flag decals on each panel. We’ll even give them body armor and M-16’s for protection.

* Finally, tell the President that additional troops can go, but only so long as they have included among them, in civilian or military capacities, his daughters, Vice President Cheney’s daughters, Jeb’s kids, and the sons and daughters of every member of his cabinet and every member of Congress who voted to authorize the war. Because if he can’t convince a single member of his own family to volunteer, why should we believe him when he says how important this war is?
