Terrorists? Dem Contenders See No Evil

Terrorists? Dem Contenders See No Evil
By Michael Goodwin

Whew, that was a close one. We suffered a big attack and were in mortal danger for a while, but we are safe now. Thank God, the war on terror is over. There are no Islamic extremists. Homeland security is not an issue. The only problem in Iraq is how to get out.

Wait, this is news to you? Then you didn't watch the Democratic debate Thursday. Or maybe you did watch, but since those unpleasant topics were completely or mostly ignored, you assumed the war was over and went to bed believing peace is at hand and Santa Claus is busy making toys at the North Pole.

It's not your fault. It's the Democratic presidential candidates who are sleepwalking through history.

As befitting a scrum with too many people and too little time, the debate touched on everything and illuminated nothing. Sen. Hillary Clinton made headlines by defending herself and for finally taking a position against driver's licenses for illegal immigrants, but the gaping hole was the absence of any serious reference to the war on terror. It's long been that way on the campaign trail, and now Dem debates reflect the dangerous drift.

The Dem debates are boring, so I go out of my way not to watch. The only part that is getting interesting is the shootout between The Hill and The 'Bama.

Go back to sleep folks. There is no war on terror. Remember? John Edwards said so. He said "The War on Terror is a bumper sticker''. So now all those people trapped on the 100th. floor of the North Tower of the World Trade center can calm down now.... oh wait, they're all dead and the Towers are gone. But John Edwards said there is no terror and he wouldn't lie, right? Stupid F'ing Dems. Elect any one of them and we're all dead. J'Mac.
