Leftie televison pundit, former Clinton advisor and Democrat Party strategist, Paul Begala is looking more like Howard Dean and the looney Moveon.org bats every day. Is the Left getting desperate?
Yesterday during a panel discussion entitled "Winning the War of Ideas" (Campus Progress National Student Conference) centered on topics discussed in the book "What's the Matter with Kansas" by Thomas Frank and detailed the challenges that Democrats face in persuading voters in the American heartland and elsewhere to embrace their agenda and support their candidates, Begala stunned his audience by stating:
Begala's presence on the panel created a stir when he declared that Republicans had "done a p***-poor job of defending" the U.S.
Republicans, he said, "want to kill us.
"I was driving past the Pentagon when that plane hit" on Sept. 11, 2001. "I had friends on that plane; this is deadly serious to me," Begala said.
"They want to kill me and my children if they can. But if they just kill me and not my children, they want my children to be comforted -- that while they didn't protect me because they cut my taxes, my children won't have to pay any money on the money they inherit," Begala said. "That is bulls*** national defense, and we should say that."
Sounds like BULL to Flap.
But, I suppose Begala has to be a potty mouth and rude because his arguments fail so miserably.
"Okay, they are utterly and completely brain-dead," echoing comments earlier this year by Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean, who accused Republicans of being "brain dead."
No, not more Howard Dean.....please.
