Actually, I feel that their collective braying is very shallow.
Let's see how many of these anti-Bush / Supposedly "anti-war" slack-jawed morons are willing to pump their untold millions down the rathole of what is soon to become the failed Democrat presidential campaign.
Did she really say that? Which Dixie Chick is that? The fat one?
Maines further stated, "I feel the President is ignoring the opinions of many in the U.S. and alienating the rest of the world. My comments were made in frustration and one of the privileges of being an American is you are free to voice your own point of view."
And yes--Maines is the fat one.
Mike Farrell addressed a question about this very subject during an online interview. He gave a weak, though fairly articulate, response justifying his "begrudging" support of the Bosnian conflict.

I'm e-mailing this article to my sister-in-law's ETHICS prof who trashes Bush and the war in every class.
I agree with everything in this article except for this statement. Mr. Clinton bombed Afghanistan and the aspirin factory for the sole purpose of covering his ass in grand jury testimony where he said "depends on what the meaning of the word is is". The fact that Bin Laden nor any of his aides were scratched is proof of that.
Anyway, a caller asked her flat out when it was appropriate for us to intervene in a foreign land for humanatarian reasons:
Her response was, "When there's no national interest for the United States!" Ann Coulter is right! The only wars that these leftists support are those that are NOT in the interest of the US!
