Well, at least He ADMITS His ‘Opponents’ Getting Marked For Death is not a “Bad Thing” [Updated]

Bill DelahuntImage via WikipediaThis hearing had nothing to do with National Security; nothing to do with anything in the nation’s interest: it’s all about getting partisan points and scoring scalps… even if the tactic could leave someone wearing a bullseye:
Delahunt To Addington: Maybe Al Qaeda Will See You On C-SPAN

Addington told Delahunt he couldn’t discuss specific techniques being used, or even discussed for use, by CIA agents because terrorists may be watching his appearance and would gain insight into what U.S. intelligence agents are up to.

“You kind of communicate with Al Qaeda if you do. I can’t talk to you because Al Qaeda may watch C-SPAN,” Addington said.

Delahunt responded: “I’m sure they are watching. I’m glad they finally have a chance to see you, Mr. Addington, given your penchant for being unobtrusive.”

That’s about the craziest shit since the last crazy shit I heard from an elected Massachusetts jackass.

He FUCKING ADMITTED he wanted the headchoppers to get a good look at this dude!

‘Now they know what you look like; a face is attached to the name.’

Of course, Delahunt is claiming he meant to do nothing of the sort, he was taken out of context.

Ace is having none of that crap:

These rotten bastards have not been particularly cautious about expressing their outright solidarity-of-convenience with Al Qaeda in the past. Once in a while a particularly nasty little thought like this — “I hope Al Qaeda kills you, because you are my political opponent” — will slip past the internal editor and wind up on C-SPAN. You can’t have hatred bubbling in your stomach every minute of every day without vomiting some of it up from time to time.

He meant exactly what he seemed to mean. For these bastards, Al Qaeda is not the enemy; only Americans who stand between themselves and political power are. In some situations, Al Qaeda is a genuine ally in the real war.

Ace does, however, offer the HopeyChange! candidate, unicorn riding with a rainbow behind him; a Messiah to calm the clinging Americans who might believe this fucker just mocked the idea that his ‘fellow American’ might get his head sawed off because of this bullshit grandstanding by a fuck who isn’t even a member of the committee doing the questioning.

UPDATE: REDSTATE-“Damn us all and our party if we let this go”

I have noticed, this Friday morning, that there has been jack shit about this on any of the morning MSM shows, no mention on Drudge, and barely a burp on Memeorandum, which leads with classless bastard Dana Milbank raking Addington over the coals.

It’s no wonder Milbank is Olby’s bitch.

Protect the Precious Snowflakes!

Absolute idiocy…

Beachwood has cancelled its annual 4th of July Rec League All-Star Game for 9 to 12 year olds.

In a letter to coaches, Assistant Recreation Supervisor Frank Vicchiarelli announced that the decades old tradition would end because certain kids were being singled out as better players than others.

Hey, dumbass, that’s why it’s called an “All Star” game.

Beachwood says the tournament at the end of the season will continue, and that’s the time to emphasize competitiveness.

Great logic there, skippy; it’s okay to say, “all the guys on the team that wins the tourney are better than the rest of the whole damn league!” but pointing out individual players who excel, from across the entire league, is somehow gonna hurt the kids who can’t hit, run or pitch for shit’s feelings, so the one-shot All Star game has got to go???

You’re an idiot. You think the kids whose feelings you think you’re protecting don’t already know who the better/best players in the league are? The more likely answer is some asshat parents were pissed off that their precious snowflakes couldn’t make the cut, so they demanded you save THEM–not the kids–from being embarrassed.

Critics of the cancellation say it’s not necessary and players who excel should be given a showcase. As in life, they point out, there are always winners and losers.

But Engh says that kind of competitiveness belongs in older kids, not players at this level. He says 9 to 12 year olds need to build their self confidence, and many sign up to play baseball at this age just to have fun.

How the bloody hell do you think those older kids learn to be competitive? Look, I began playing Little League ball at that age(10), and it wasn’t pretty most of the time. I also concurrently played Pee Wee hockey, where I was making chumps out of kids my age, and going toe to toe with kids much older than I was in non-league games. They waived me to play in the older age bracket the following season, because the league realized it was ridiculous keeping me in my age group.

I continued playing baseball for a few more years, and it remained a sometimes comical effort (I couldn’t hit for shit most of the time), but I did get better… “competent,” if you ignored my batting. It drove me nuts that I couldn’t figure out how to hit when I could do anything I goddamn wanted with a hockey stick.

So baseball was left behind.
