Pat Paints a Picture of Posies

Patrick McHenry just returned from a Congressional trip to Afghanistan where he toured the area and assessed the progress of our ongoing military efforts in that country. In one news account McHenry painted a pretty picture of what is happening in Afghanistan. He told the Hickory Record "So much attention has been focused on Iraq that Afghanistan has been ignored." Too bad he was referring to press attention and not realizing he had just described the Bush Administration's policy on the wars.

McHenry went on to talk about all of the improvements that had been made and how he wishes more attention would be paid to them. Again, if only we had concentrated on the Afghan mission that really hampered Al-Qaeda instead of invading Iraq, then what could we have already accomplished there?

That evil liberal press

they won't follow the rules and keep coloring outside the lines...heheh

No matter that patriotism is too often the refuge of scoundrels. Dissent, rebellion, and all-around hell-raising remain the true duty of patriots.

And all the men and women merely players.”
So enjoy the drama.

NC watches Pat
in the land of the poppies.
Who will gavel him?

From Afghanistan,
He yips and yaps and sputters
Lapdog pees on rug.

Little Pat takes trip
where Barney's gavel can't reach
You're out of order!

Lapdog pees on rug.
