Dueling Washington Clowns

At first the Republican clowns in Congress hoped to change the discussion about Iraq by bringing up the phony MoveOn.org crusade involving the General Patraeus ad. It wasted a good week back in Washington. Now clown Democrats are making a similiar absurd cause against overweight drug addict, Rush Limbaugh, and his "phony soldiers" comment to describe U.S. soldiers critical of the Iraq War.

Unfortunately both wacko crusades only divert time from serious matters in Washington, where many Americans still go without health care, more jobs are lost to low wage nations, many lose their homes to foreclosure and fuel prices and home heating oil break new price records.

Two wrong still do not make a right. And the continued phony crusades for purely political reasons only serve to undermine the credibility of Congress and turn off voters. This is not the government that the public expects.
