Skip to comments.The Brave General & The Whining Senator (Petraeus vs. Betrayus)

General David Petraeus
Leader of the forces in Iraq who testified before Congress that a resolution condemning the President's troop buildup would encourage the enemy and discourage the American soldiers.
Senator Chuck Betrayus
The only Republican on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to vote with the Democrat party to condemn the President's troop buildup. Betrayus was a big cheerleader and even had the nerve to "chew out" the patriots on the committee who refused to give aid and comfort to the enemy. Betrayus literally told the Republicans who opposed him they'd be better off as shoe salesmen.
Feel free to caption these pics any way you like.
Since when have generals had to be confirmed by the Senate. I never remember this before. I'm going to go look at the "Advise and Consent" clause.
Chuck is Nancy Pelosi without the hair-do. Surely Nebraskans can't be stupid enough to send this quisling back to the Senate to represent them election after election. I'd check those electronic voting machines....
Not too difficult to tower above the crud in the bottom of the benjo ditch.
Chuck Betrayus is brilliant. I'm going to start using it.

'General Betray Us'
A footnote to the fuss over MoveOn's "General Betray Us" ad, a favored GOP talking point of the day. (Genius? Idiocy? Interested in readers' views.)
Anyway, it also appears to have been borrowed, indirectly, from Rush Limbaugh. According to a Free Republican diary, Rush took a call in January from a listener who suggested he contrast General Petraeus with Senator Chuck Betrayus -- i.e., Hagel.

The second time was my thread, quoted nearly verbatim, on Drudge's headline, when Kanye West made a complete ASS of himself on the Katrina fundraising telethon...
And now, this. :)
One other time, though I cannot prove it, I posted the Vermont Republican party's response to Judas Jim Jeffords' little temper tantrum when he went "independent"...a few minutes later, Rush Limbaugh himself was reading the very same letter I posted. :)
I ought to work for RL. I'd be an asset to his business.
Anyway, THANK YOU, bvw, for the heads up! :)
Happy to make a fellow Freeper a bit happy!
You beat me by just over 90 minutes. I feel like the Devil (Ray Walston) at the end of ‘Damn Yankees’.
‘You Beat me, beat me, beat me, beat me, beat me, beat me . .’ (fadeout).
Anyhow Recovering_Democrat congratulations on your ever increasing fame!
FR is still the glue that holds our all our collective right-wing-nut super energies in some focus.
Hey, this is my first post. I WAS THAT CALLER.. I think that day time ran out, but Rush still mentioned what i had called to say...
I’m so proud to be a part of this non-story.
