Alaska’s Newspaper is not down with Saxby Chambliss of Georgia

November 30, 2008

I see empty headed Barbie is going to have her hands full trying to get her own Newspaper to tow the republican party line.  It seems that adn.com, an Alaskan newspaper, found Chambliss’ character some what questionable and faulted Barbie for endorsing him.

Chambliss was elected to the Senate in 2002 by running one of the most reprehensible campaigns of modern times. He was up against incumbent Democrat Sen. Max Cleland, a Vietnam War veteran who lost both legs and his right arm to a grenade during that conflict.

Chambliss avoided serving in Vietnam. He got four student draft deferments, and when his number finally came up, he was medically disqualified with knee troubles.

In the best Karl Rove fashion, Chambliss the draft-evader attacked Cleland the war hero for being soft on terrorism. Distorting Cleland’s votes about workplace rules for the new Homeland Security Department employees, Chambliss portrayed him as a tool of terrorists like Osama bin Laden.

The man who couldn’t bring himself to serve in the military said a man who left three limbs behind in war was a weakling who would turn the country over to terrorists.

Chambliss was a congressman during the 9-11 attacks. Congressional Quarterly’s “Politics in America 2006” noted that Congressman Chambliss “quipped that one route to security would be for local sheriffs to ‘arrest every Muslim that comes across the state line.’”

So there you have the fine American that Palin is trying to re-elect to the U.S. Senate.

Gov. Palin’s eldest joined the Army and has been deployed to Iraq. As a justifiably proud military mom, she might ask herself why she is using her conservative star power to support such a reprehensible Republican chicken hawk.

The Alaskan Newspaper noted Chambliss’ propensity for slimming people unwarrantly.  One gets the sense that maybe adn.com would like nothing more than to see the man defeated.

Enough said.

  2. “Tow the line” – seriously? You may want to check the derivation of that phrase. Try here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toe_the_line
