News ad reads like treason
by C.F. David
A political ad that allegedly ran in a Florida newspaper, if it's true reads like treason.
According to a developing on-line news story on the Drudge Report Tuesday afternoon, an ad (accompanied by a picture of Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld) and placed by the St. Petersburg (Fla.) Democratic Club in the current issue of the GABBER, a local newspaper reads:
“We should put this S.O.B. up against a wall and say ‘This is one of our bad days' and pull the trigger.”
The publisher of the GABBER told Drudge that running the passage was “a mistake that slipped through.” That's a real quick C.Y.A. on his/her part.
When asked if the ad was soliciting violence against Rumsfeld, Club Vice-president Edna McCall explained that “Pull the trigger” means “Let Rumsfeld know where we stand, not to shoot him!”
If this woman is serious, she is also extremely ignorant about the common usage of the phrase.
This group should be investigated; if for nothing more than what may be a poor choice of words.
The ad also asks the readers to make an urgent donation to the Kerry campaign.
It's my opinion Kerry and his crew haven't made all the right decisions so far. However, getting a lot of distance between themselves and these loonies would be extremely wise.
The same would go for the National Democratic Committee, if this outfit is chartered, it should be cut loose.
Even as a registered Republican, Rumsfeld isn't one of my favorites; however, my solution would be to petition the president to remove the Secretary as being someone who causes, and has caused, division in the nation.
