Dodd Sponsors Scheduled Surrender

Connecticut Senator Chris Dodd has announced that he will support a measure that mandates withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq, calling President Bush’s war policy a “failure.” It schedules America’s surrender in this theater of the Global War on Terror for March 31, 2008.

Like Dodd’s turkey neck, a question dangles before us. What then?

I’m sure it is delightful to imagine all we have to do to end the bloody war in Iraq and any further American casualties is to just pack up and go home. Those who believe this do not understand the correlation between Iraq, and the larger War on Terror. They regurgitate DNC talking points using the terms “no weapons of mass destruction” or “failed war policy” or profess that Iraq did not attack us on September 11, 2001.

It is no coincidence that most war protestors are either high school or college-aged non-conformists, or middle-aged patchouli enthusiasts who won’t wear a bra because it might kill a tree. These people are either intellectually and emotionally immature, mentally stunted, or hate America.

Dodd is immature. That's why he was well into his sixties before he settled down, got married and had a child, and stopped going to Spring Break with Ted Kennedy.

The SDS alums over at MyLeftNutmeg, who adore Dodd and his absurd run for president are having a priapism over Dodd signing on to this surrender bill. Now, I'm not saying our friends at MyLeftNutmeg are immature... we all enjoy the absolutely hilarious genital metaphor employed in their blog title.

Let's rewind a bit back to before we invaded Iraq. I am particularly inspired by these gems directly from the good Senator himself:

"There is no question that Iraq possesses biological and chemical weapons and that he seeks to acquire additional weapons of mass destruction, including nuclear weapons. That is not in debate. I also agree with President Bush that Saddam Hussein is a threat to peace and must be disarmed, to quote President Bush directly." - Senator Christopher Dodd, Congressional Record, October 8, 2002

"Of course we're safer without [Saddam Hussein]. I mean, consider the option of him still being there, knowing that he has used weapons of mass destruction, knowing how committed he was to do everything he could to be harmful to the United States and our allies." -Senator Christopher Dodd, CNBC's Capitol Report, December 18, 2003

Put that in your peace pipe and smoke it.
