Are Your FruitBats Hating More And Enjoying It less???

a h/t to the folks at hullabaloo for this giggler:
Frank Gaffney, one of the country's most influential and well-connected neoconservatives, has a column in today's Washington Times in which he argues that the debate taking place in Congress over the war in Iraq constitutes treason. Gaffney specifically argues that the condemnations of Douglas Feith from Sen. Rockefeller "really should be a hanging offense."

Gaffney begins his column by purporting to quote Abraham Lincoln. Gaffney claims that Lincoln said:
Congressmen who willfully take actions during wartime that damage morale and undermine the military are saboteurs and should be arrested, exiled, or hanged.

This quote has become a favorite weapon for those who want to criminalize criticism of the Leader and the War. Jack Murtha's opponent in the last election, Diana Irey, cited this quote while discussing Murtha's opposition to the war.

[ cf Neoconservatives hate liberty as much as they love war ]
Of course there is the grand comedy under it all.....

That the Military is dropping its standards and taking in more Felons to make quota, because the pro-war crowd wants to stay home and become the next Rush Limbaugh Or Karl Rove....

Ah yes, the Great War Heroes who are all so much more Patriotically corrector than thou...
