Hey, what do you say if Zarqawi’s death isn’t the best news you’ve heard all day?
Well, here’s an item from a New York Sun blog:
Right now, I’m in the media room at YearlyKos, listening to liberal bloggers and activists fret about how to spin the killing of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi.
“We are constantly bashed on the right for not supporting the military.”
“We can’t say ‘yes, but’.” As in, yes it’s good Zarqawi is dead, but . . .
“Why have we not gotten Osama?”
“Zarqawi is not about Iraq.” As in, the real reason we wanted him dead was the USS Cole bombing.
“We’re talking to the 98 percent of the unwashed who don’t know what the Cole is.” In response to above.
“If we’d followed Clinton’s anti-terrorism plan, we would have gotten Zarqawi years ago.” As in, without going into Iraq.
“If you keep looking for someone long enough, you’ll find him.”
Nope. No way to spin this one.
P.S. Scroll down to find out what the father of Nick Berg, who was personally beheaded by Zarqawo, thinks about the death of Zarqawi. Hint: He’s mad at President Bush.
P.P.S. The intrepid Byron York also attended the YearlyKos conference–he went to a pundit training session.
