Not Funny but True

The Demozette interviewed Dennis Milligan, the newly elected chairman of the Republican party of Arkansas last week and here's a quote, "At the end of the day, I believe fully the President is doing the right thing, and I think all we need is some attacks on American soil like we had on September 11th, 2001 and the naysayers will come around very quickly to appreciate not only the commitment for President Bush, but the sacrifice that has been made by men and women to protect this Country".
I've never met Mr. Milligan and I'm hoping he didn't mean we just need a few attacks so we can prove this President right. Hope not. He is correct about one thing though--there can be no questions about the enormous sacrifices made by our soldiers and their families. Our support for them must never waver.

As a Navy veteran, I was shocked to read Mr. Milligan's remarks. Surely his lips were moving faster than his brain. Leaders need to speak forthrightly but with some degree of critical thoughfulness. As a leader of his party here in Arkansas, I hope his future statements are more reflective of his Republican constituency.
