From Their Own Mouths

Thursday, June 30, 2005
Trolling the blogosphere this morning, I discovered that the wingnuts are all in a tizzy because some pan-Islamic organization wants a permanent seat on the U.N. Security Council. This is a ridiculous notion, of course, but I find Dean's World's response more than a little amusing:

I say that the day that every single member of the OIC is a nation which holds free elections with universal franchise, genuine opposition parties, and free political expression enshrined in its body of law, that is a perfectly fine idea.

This coming from a conservative? The guys who want to gerrymander & suppress the the vote, eliminate (or least cripple) the Democratic Party, intimidate journalists and dissenters, and generally be illberal jerkoffs? That's rich.

P.S. I found somethings similar in Bush's speech the other day....

The terrorists who attacked us and the terrorists we face murder in the name of a totalitarian ideology that hates freedom, rejects tolerance and despises all dissent.

Sounds like a pretty good definition of today's Republican party to me. Except for the murder part.
