OMT One Man's Trash...from Norman Leahy

What's the Matter with Fairfax Democrats?

Plenty, according to this item from NLS. He points to a blog posting from Alice Marshall (whom NLS says is the "...only paid...person to work full time for the committee.")which opens with a nice threat to Sen. John Warner:

If you persuade Bush, Cheney and their entire cabinet to resign, we will not turn you over to the International War Crimes Tribunal. As chair of the Armed Forces Committee you are complicit in both waging a war based on lies and failing to stop torture.

That's...a novel interpretation of events.

It's perfectly fine for people to sling hash like this on their own time. But I do wonder if Ms. Marshall's employers on the FCDC share her penchant for colorful threats and interesting interpretations of what constitutes a war crime.

"You know what the fellow said: In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they also produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love -- they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock." -- Orson Welles, The Third Man

"The graveyards are full of indespensable men" -- Charles de Gaulle

"Oh, so Mother Nature needs a favor? Well maybe she should have thought of that when she was besetting us with droughts and floods and poison monkeys. Nature started the fight for survival and now she wants to quit because she's losing. Well I say, hard cheese!" -- Montgomery Burns
