Memorial Day Wishy-Washy Wobblers

George W. Bush is no Churchill, certainly not as an orator.  But he is much closer to Churchill as a leader than are his critics who pander to opinion polls and focus groups.

Liberals are so focused on their hatred for the President that Memorial Day hardly gets a passing glance from them.  In my state of Connecticut, local and national liberal organizations have begun spending millions to defeat Senator Joseph Lieberman, solely because he supported the Iraq invasion, and unlike his wish-washy liberal party associates, has stuck with that support.  The Democrat-dominated school board in the Senator’s home town of Stamford voted to ignore Memorial Day and to hold regular school sessions.
