Wimps for WarFew Democrats have the guts to stand up against Bush's war plans. Why? Because they are tough? On the contrary, "They're afraid of being on the wrong side of this war," said Michael Kazin, professor of history at Georgetown University and co-author of "America Divided: The Civil War of the 1960's," as quoted in The New York Times.
They're afraid. They are afraid of looking bad, losing some support from big donors, standing out from the crowd. They don't want to be painted as "liberal wimps," who were not tough enough to go wholeheartedly into a campaign to obliterate a badly crippled third world country that just happens to stand at the threshold of the Bush crowd's designs to control the Middle East.
God help those spineless bums.
