Like Snake Oil Salesmen, Rush, Hannity, O'Reilly and Savage Got Rich Off the Suckers Who Believed Their Lies
They made fun of liberals, calling them traitors, victims of a mental disorder, unpatriotic, Communists and the enemy within.
Now--as the endless war is bankrupting this country, much the same way that the Soviet Union's fight to conquer Afghanistan did more to help topple communism than all of Ronald Reagan's bluster--these slimebags are saying what the liberals said eight years ago.
This war was about oil. It was conducted by people who didn't have a clue about Mideast foreign policy. The promised payout --that Iraq would cover the expenses--has never been delivered.
And much of the half a trillion dollars of tax money used to fund it ended up in the hands of administration corporate friends who supplied the troops.
I'm hearing these things from conservatives! But I'm not hearing apologies. I'm not hearing them say they were idiots for calling protestors traitors, or for falling for the lies and subterfuge from the Bush White House.
You want to see what this war is really like? Watch this video.
Meanwhile, in a just world, these snake oil salesmen on the right (and don't forget Ann Coulter, who is allegedly not a man), should be tarred and feathered, not buying houses in the Hamptons.
