Howard Dean to Commemorate 7-Dec-1941

Yesterday, December 6th, 2005 – a date which will live in infamy – the Democratic Party, some of us at least, were suddenly and deliberately attacked by the navel-gazing and air-head forces of the GOP.

Democrats would appease anyone but those bastards, and at the solicitation of certain GOP Senators, we were still in conversation with the Administration looking toward the maintenance of our perfect record of peace at any cost. Indeed, only hours after I commenced informing our troops and our enemies that we could not win in Iraq, and denigrating our mission there, the President of the Senate delivered to the American people a formal reply to the recent Democrat message calling for “immediate withdrawal”, or as the Senate calls it, “premature evacuation.” While this reply stated that it seemed useless to continue the existing negotiations for imminent capitulation, it contained no guarantee of surrender by the United States.

It will be recorded that the short distance from now until the Iraqi elections makes it obvious that the attack was deliberately planned many days or even weeks ago. During the intervening time the Administration has deliberately sought to deceive American citizens with false statements of support for our troops and even of hope for victory over Islamofascist terrorists.

The attack yesterday on the DNC has caused severe damage to our enemies’ morale. Very many American lives have been lost, though not enough to get our message out. In addition, Hillary Clinton’s campaign for President has been reported torpedoed in the high empty places between the ears of washed up political hacks.

Yesterday the GOP also launched attacks against Democrat strategic malaise, i.e., our utter disarray on Iraq policy. Last night GOP forces attacked the DNC Chair. Last night GOP forces attacked our rhetoric. Last night GOP forces attacked NEA members in Michigan. Last night the GOP forces attacked Ramsay Clark. This morning the GOP attacked our media.

This Administration, therefore, has undertaken a surprise defense against Islamofascist sympathizer cadres. The facts speak for themselves. The people of the United States have already formed their opinions and well understand the implications to the very life and safety of our nation. [I know, I know. I’m trying!]

As Commander-in-Chef of MoveOn and ANSWER, I have directed that all measures be taken for our defense.

Always will we remember the character of the onslaught against us. No matter how long it may take us to overcome this premeditated invasion, the DNC people in their righteous might … AAARRGGH! … are going to New Hampshire, and to to to … Baghdad!!

[Pause for applause]

I believe I interpret the will of the moonbats and Chomskyites when I assert that we will not only debase ourselves to the uttermost, but will make very certain that this form of treachery shall never endanger Saddam again.

Hostilities exist. There is no blinking at the fact that our donors, our credibility and our naked partisan interests are in grave danger.

With no confidence in our armed forces – with the unbounded determination to lay down our arms – we will gain the inevitable defeat – so help us Cindy Sheehan.

I ask that the Congress declare that since these unprovoked and dastardly attacks we must immediately determine a date certain for the United States to withdraw from Iraq.
