Sorry, Can't Back You Up On This One

Crooks and Liars Calls Sarah Palin A  Traitor

Anyone who reads this blog knows I'm no fan of the Resigning Woman or her belligerent and numerous brood.

But I didn't like it when I was called a "traitor" for criticizing Dubbya, and I don't like it when the Snowbilly Grifter gets the same treatment, even from a blog I agree with 90% of the time.

Treason has a very specific definition and criticizing the President  ain't it. It wasn't treason when I did it, and it isn't when Caribou Barbie does it, no matter how unfairly or stupidly she does it.

Besides, there are so many more accurate things to call the Quitta from Wasilla. "Fuckwit" comes immediately to mind.

I thought criticizing politicians was part of democracy & almost a requirement of any true patriot? You may be wrong in your criticisms, but that's another matter.

Would you say that the current and ongoing actions of Sen. Kyl would fit the definition?

He's certainly interfering with National Security, unlike Sarah Palin, who is, as you noted, just being a fuckwit.

I think Kyl's opposition to START is shortsighted, politically motivated, and just plain wrong.

I do not think it's treason.

Agreed. Stupidity and treason should not be conflated, for who among us has not said something outrageously stupid in our time?
