More projectitude

Over at Niewarts place I cought this gem of republican tolerance. I haven't run across this genius Yoshida before.
Let’s face a hard truth: this was the bitterest Presidential campaign in living memory. The Democrats and their allies staked everything on the defeat of this President. All of the resources they had accumulated over a generation of struggle were thrown into this battle: and they have failed. Despite all of their tricks, despite all of their lies, the people have rejected them. They mean nothing. They are worth nothing. There’s no point in trying to reach out to them because they won’t be reached out to. We’ve got their teeth clutching the sidewalk and out boot above their head. Now’s the time to curb-stomp the bastards.
I am pleased to find that for the second time in my life (miscegenation laws the first) that I am not to be considered a citizen in some places and by some folks, even folks with foreign sounding names. Now my favorite conservative pony Michelle Malkin, who no doubt considers me a second class citizen, has her panties in a bunch over a Michael Moore piece and an image you have probably seen before.

not like me linking to her page, for convenience
I assure you, not because i am a welfare queen....

This paragraph is particularly noteworthy:
I'd also like to point out that 'War President' is an image. It is not a textual statement or rhetorical argument. An image is like an empty room and any message that one reads in that room necessarily came in the baggage one carried when one walked in the door.

EXACTLY. While American Leftist sees and intended his creation to be seen as Michael Moore does--as some sort of slam against Bush for causing the deaths of American soldiers--the image carries a radically different meaning for those of us who honor the sacrifices of our men and women in uniform and who honor our newly-reelected leader of the free world for his decisiveness, conviction, and fortitude in pursuit of the common defense.

So, thanks, Michael Moore, for posting a moving tribute to our soldiers and to our president, who has demonstrated what it takes to stand up to evil abroad and hatred at home.

If ever there were an image that served as a poignant reminder that freedom is not free (something liberals like Moore adamantly refuse to grasp), this one is it.
"Hatred at home", right, like that fomented by Rove to drive his base to the polls."....liberals like Moore adamantly refuse to grasp" right.....I don't think any of us in the reality based community refuse to grasp anything, we get it, but feel free to project the attitudes of your constituency onto ours, we are used to it.
