An American Speaks Out
Patriotboy over at the Jesus' General satirical blog has come out of character to speak out against this ghastly new smear campaign by the Republicans. I leave you with his words for the weekend:
"When you're the father of two beautiful daughters, your house becomes a gathering place for young men. That was certainly the case when my daughters were in high school. We were lucky, most of them were good kids. I spent quite a bit of time with them and got to know them very well.
Now they're coming home from war. The all American boy with a heart of gold talks of his hate for "hajis" and wishes we could nuke the place. The class clown sits in his room all day staring at the Cartoon Channel while self medicating with pot and booze. The nice liberal Jewish boy who melted my wife's yenta heart tells us in a dispassionate, far-away monotone that "killing those animals was like stepping on ants." Our "son" screams at night.
My heart breaks for these boys we adopted in their teenage years. They've lost their souls. And for what?"
