Blogs For Bush

Hat Tip to PoliShifter at Pissed On Politics for inspiring this post. Yes, it’s another post about chickenhawks; keyboard warriors; the Chairborne Division. With Bush getting ready to surge all over Iraq, this is more of a sore subject than ever.

The editor of Blogs For Bush, Mark Noonan, wanted to re-enlist after the 9/11 attacks. (He had already spent four years in the Navy.) Alas, he was unable to re-enlist because of his age; he was too old. He’s 42 years old — he turns 43 next November.

But wait — the good news is: the enlistment age has been raised to 42. Mark will now be able to re-enlist after all, if he hurries. Isn’t that great?!?!?! You Go Mark!

Blogs For Bush has been spewing out Neocon drivel since October 2003. Saddam Hussein had Weapons of Mass Destruction. Iraq was connected with the 9/11 attacks. Hussein was closely allied with al Qaeda. Our mission in Iraq is to bring democracy. Etc.

Special Bonus: If you're an unattached wingnut and you're looking for that special someone, check out their section on Conservative Singles. Their motto is “Sweethearts not bleeding hearts.” Ain't that romantic.


UPDATE: Please sign this online petition to send Mark Noonan to Iraq. (Hat Tip to Whisperwolf.)

I happily joined this effort. We need to get enough of us to give Blogs for Bush the kind of page views they never even thought about getting...

After following the link to "Conservative Singles" I have one question: What the hell is she wearing?

Thanks Tom!

I know it would be impossible to legislation but in theory only those that support the war should have to fight it.

I say we send 30,000 wingnuts over to Iraq in place of the troops Bush is sending.

My theory is that they would be so annoying that the Iraqi Sunni and Shi'a would call a truce just to get the wingnuts shipped out of their country.

Can you imagine Malkin, Coulter, Noonan, O'Reilly, Hannity, Limbaugh, Savage, etc ad nauseum all in Baghdad on the tv, radio, blogs, and print spewing their bullshit? That would be enough to get the Iraqis to say "enough! Get these fucking wingnuts outta here! We'll be peaceful we promise! Just get Coulter the fuck outta here!"

Jolly Roger: I'm guessing they get a lot of traffic (I clicked on their sitemeter button but they have the "secret" version that doesn't reveal anything). Those rightwing bloggers seem to all faithfully visit each other constantly, so that even the lamest blogs get hundreds and hundreds or even thousands of visits a day. But maybe they'll get some more negative traffic.

People In The Sun: You mean that first picture that shows up, where the guy has his arm around the front of her neck? It looks like he's thinking “take the Bush pledge NOW or I’ll snap your neck like a twig.”

PoliShifter: I think you're right. Those rightwing talking heads would be more effective than any bomb. Any adversary would be pleading “no, please, anything but that.”

There's still plenty of time for the Bush twins to enlist.

Candace: That would be poetic for them to be sent to Iraq, but that would probably backfire. They'd probably stand up in the foxhole and start gossiping, or they'd turn their guns in the wrong direction and start shooting American soldiers.

I love it. Those people can sure "talk the talk" but they sure can't "walk the talk". It really is time to call them on it.

I wrote this to Blogs for Bush:

I think that anyone who believes the Iraq war is a just cause should be willing to enlist today, so they can go there and help our troops. Now that the age requirement for enlistment has been raised to age 42, it appears that Mark Noonan should be able to enlist, immediately. Same goes for Matt Margolis, who was born in 1980, and Kevin Patrick who is 34. Why don't the three of you brave men go down to your military recruiter's office right now, and sign up to get the training you need to go to Iraq. Paul Lewis is 51, so he can kick back here at home while you, his friends, go to Iraq to make the ultimate sacrifice for our Loon-In-Chief and his warped world vision. There are probably a number of bloggers on your sidebar who would also meet enlistment requirements. I see Michelle Malkin's name there, and I am sure she isn't quite yet 40.

Your support of people like Bush suggests to me that you view our troops as a tool to be used toward political gain, for acquisition of oil, or for the furthering of Bush's fundamentalist religious ideals. If you paid attention to how Bush has violated the Constitution, you would sing a different tune... but you haven't been paying attention. The guy who has not upheld the Constitution, as he vowed to do when he took his oath of office, continues to trample it while sites like yours glofify his actions.

There is a big train coming, and you are going to be left behind if you don't get your tickets.

Snave: Yup, "talk the talk" is about all they're good for.
That was an excellent comment that you sent them.

Kurt: Yeah, a dumbass phrase like that is sort of sickening and funny at the same time.

Are you kidding? With the lack of female companionship the GIs are facing in Iraq, the twins could set themselves up as "comfort women" and surpass their daddy's fortune in no time!

Since they pretty much do the same thing for free right now, why not? They could set up a little side business catering to Arab guys who always wanted to do American chicks.

Jolly Roger: Damn, I never thought of that. And some of the money they made could be used for balancing the budget. A win-win for our treasury, the Bush Twins and all those horny Arab guys.

Count me in, too. I do not think we should limit our efforts to Mr. Noonan. While Operation Yellow Elephant is preoccupied with college Republicans, I think that twenty- and thirtysomething wingnuts should enlist as well.

Browsing the bookshelves, I noted some books by such right-wing commandoes as Ben Shapiro, Mark Smith, and Michelle Malkin. Mr. Noonan has co-written a book with Matt Margolis. Mr. Margolis is 26. Why are they wasting precious trees writing books that nobody outside of CPAC will ever read?

They should be encouraged to enlist--or explain why they're still farting behind computer screens when the military is sending injured soldiers back to Iraq.

The Truffle: Absolutely. Anybody who's 42 or under and in favor of this war should get their ass over there ASAP. Hardly any of these Neocon PNAC-types ever served in the military, but they have no problem sending other people's family members over there. It's disgraceful.
