Democrats Use Zarqawi Death for Politics

I hesitate to post this here reather than WMD, but since our resident space alien (Dennis Kucinich) is a factor in this story...

Check out this story in the Washington Times. The lowlight is this:
“Some Democrats, breaking ranks from their leadership, today said the death of terrorist leader Abu Musab Zarqawi in Iraq was a stunt to divert attention from an unpopular and hopeless war. ‘This is just to cover Bush's [rear] so he doesn't have to answer’ for Iraqi civilians being killed by the U.S. military and his own sagging poll numbers, said Rep. Pete Stark, California Democrat. ‘Iraq is still a mess -- get out.’ Rep. Dennis J. Kucinich, Ohio Democrat, said Zarqawi was a small part of ‘a growing anti-American insurgency’ and that it's time to get out. ‘We're there for all the wrong reasons,’ Mr. Kucinich said.
Disgraceful.

Disgraceful, but typical

Also, these are the people who will be upset if we get bin Laden before the elections. They care less about eliminating the threat to our country than making sure nothing reflects well on the President.

Stark and Kucinich are fighting on the wrong side -- can we deport them?

No one would take Kucinich.
