Iraq Journal: Ted Rall’s a Dum-dum!

If you’ve ever wondered…How can President Bush be so successful with all the passionate liberal opposition amassed against him? Read this excerpt from one of the Democrats’ intellectual pointmen, Ted Rall, cartoonist extraordinaire and ultra-humanitarian:

NEW YORK–If you read newspapers, listen to the radio or watch television, you know that the media has assigned Muqtada al-Sadr a peculiar job title: radical cleric. “Gunmen fired on supporters of the radical Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr on Friday,” reports the Associated Press wire service. National Public Radio routinely refers to “radical cleric Moqtada al-Sadr.” “The protesters were largely supporters of radical Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr,” says CNN. Even Agence France-Press refers to him the same way: “Followers of a radical Shiite cleric marched in Baghdad.”

I wonder: Does he answer his phone with a chipper “Muqtada al-Sadr, radical cleric!”? Does it say “radical cleric” on his business card?

It’s a safe bet that neither al-Sadr nor his Iraqi supporters considers him particularly “radical.” And, if you stop to think about it, there’s nothing inherently extreme about wanting foreign troops to leave your country. Radical is a highly subjective word that gets thrown around without much reflection. What’s more radical, invading another nation without a good excuse or trying to stop someone from doing so? But that’s the problem: the media has become so accustomed to absorbing and regurgitating official government propaganda that they never stop to think. If you can stomach reading more

Instead of calling Muqtada al-Sadr, the radical cleric, I submit to the MSM that we called him “Mookie the Mensch”! Oh get real! How about “Mookie the moron”? Or better yet, “Mookie the Missing Link”. That should satisfy everyone including Ted Rall’s highly developed sensitive tendencies.

Hey Teddy, instead of worrying about Mookie, how about a little concern about our men in uniform? Oh snap, I forgot. In the mind of the Libreral, we are evil, imperialist, racist, misogynistic, homophobic, fascistic America.

With countrymen like Teddy, who needs enemies!
