Saxby Chambliss Having Orgasms over Images of America Invading Syria

Saxby Chambliss (R—Chicken Hawk) wants to penetrate deep deep deep into Syrian territory.  And he feels so strongly about this, he’s willing to fight to the last drop of somebody else’s blood.

He told NBC’s David Gregory:

“I don’t think you can place any limits on it right now.  I do think it’s imperative that President Bashar Assad be removed. It’s pretty obvious that he’s pretty well entrenched now. He’s gone to the extreme of letting Hezbollah have the run of Syria. That is simply not good.  And while I know there are bad guys involved with the opposition rebels, we’ve done a pretty good job of ferreting out who are the good guys or who are the more moderate guys in that opposition, and I’m certain that’s who the president is talking about providing arms to.”

Gee, what could possibly go wrong?

I haven’t seen any national polls on whether the U.S. should get involved in Syrias civil war, but our local newspaper’s online poll question today is:  “Do you agree or disagree with President Barack Obama's authorization of military arms to the Syrian rebels?”

67.7% of poll respondents disagree.  18.8% agree; 13.5% are undecided.  (This online survey doesn’t claim to be scientific.)

I live in a red county in a blue state.  If two thirds of the people in this area don’t want us quagmired in yet another war, the message is loud and clear (whatever that’s worth).

This reminds me of Vietnam.

The hawks told LBJ they would support him if he took more Military action if he took it.

Then when the war got unpopular, they scattered and left Johnson holding the bag.

This is one Senator's Opinion. Nothing in there about whether he would really support Obama if he did so or not.

Bottom line is, as a hard liner, he is not supposed to support Obama, even if he takes his advise Chambliss will then deny saying it.

Has to be the biggest scumbag draftdodger of all time. Not that there is anything wrong with being a draft doger. Just for the wrong reasons, early, early on. This scumbag had it all figured out, early on. The scumbag is from my hometown, went to my HS. Total scumbag. This scumbag epitomizes what is wrong with conservatives, republicans, the US, and the world.

Aw man, why did you have to put orgasm and Saxby Chambliss in the same sentence. Three is just not enough brain bleach in the world for that image Tom.

Only in the Republican Party could a Draft Dodger beat a disabled Veteran by claiming to be more patriotic as Chamliss did to Max Cleland

Erik: I don't think Chambliss is running for re-election, which is probably why he's willing to "associate" with Obama. But he's still a scumbag for smearing a disabled Vietnam veteran.

Anonymous: He's definitely the scum-suckingest of the chicken hawks.

Life: Great to hear that song again.

Jess: LOL, I need some of that brain bleach too.

Erik: That pro-Chambliss TV ad has to be the lowest political ad of all time. Comparing a triple amputee to Osama bin Laden -- Chambliss and Tim Phillips (who produced the ad) both need to pay a heavy price for being such sleazebags.

Lisa G.: LOL, brain bleach all around.

Next stop slippery slope.

My heart tells me we should be doing something about this other than shouting encouragement from the sidelines. My head tells me: hands off, this will not end well.

We can mount a full invasion with a couple hundred thousand of our own troops, an equivalent contribution from our NATO "allies" (unlike their feeble participation in Afghanistan), full cover from the Arab League and the UN, a readiness to face down the Russians and preparations for a massive, decade-long occupation. Or we can stay out. Let's stay out.

GC: I agree, slippery slope. Can of worms. Pandora's Box.

It'll have to be one extreme or the other: either we're completely uninvolved or we'll have another "coalition of the willing" and another endless quagmire.
