Bush World: Chuck Hagel is a Pansy Hippie Peacenik

Via DailyKos

Wow! In the bizarro world® of the Bush administration, it's not just the Democrats who are soft on terrorism. They consider conservative Nebraska Senator Chuck Hagel to be a liberal, anti-American peacenik hippie. On CNN Sunday (June 26), Vice President Cheney said this

Since 9/11, we've had people like Chuck Hagel and other politicians and we've had people in the press corps and commentators who've said we can't do Afghanistan... [Washington has] got a lot of people in it who were armchair quarterbacks or who like to comment on the passing scene. But those who have predicted the demise of our efforts since 9/11 -- as we have fought the war on terror, as we have liberated 50 million people in Iraq and Afghanistan -- did not know what they were talking about.

Nevermind the fact that Hagel was 100% supportive of the war in Afghanistan. Nevermind the fact that Chuck Hagel served in Vietnam (unlike Cheney and Bush). Of course, Hagel has been very critical of the war in Iraq, but it seems to me that Iraq and Afghanistan are two different countries.

I miss the old Bizzaro World stories. They would have such cute characters: Bizzaro Bush would go around balancing the budget, making peace and being a uniter not a divider. Bizzaro Cheney would never have an unkind thing to say about anyone and would always provide the voice of reason.

Of course not everything was sweetness and light. There was also Bizzaro Will Rogers, who never met a man he liked, became Vice President, ran a shadow government and--nostalgic for the days of the cold war--not so secretly worked to turn America into a new evil empire.
