There is a report that, while touring the Caliphascist detention center in Cuba, Senators Kennedy and Akaka were given some very unfavorable feedback about their position with regard to that facility. The feedback came from people who were both citizens of the states of the Senators and guards at the facility. As noted, that can’t be good news for either Senator. Although, as expected, Old Media isn’t covering it and the Senators have no comment. But those soldiers will be coming home and I doubt they’ll keep quiet about their views.
One might wonder how the Democratic Party thought they could avoid this problem, but of course their world view prevents forseeing such problems. In that world view, President Bush is evil in no small part because he sends the troops off to die in irrelevant, nasty foreign countries so his buddies can cash in their Halliburton stock options. Akaka, Kennedy and their ilk are simply incapable of believing that the military really, honestly, is very supportive of Bush and their current missions. Just as they can’t understand why so many Americans “vote against their interests” — i.e., for Republicans.
