Hey Karl Rove:
Are you sure you want to talk about the conservative response to 9/11, compared to the liberal response? You sure? OK. Let's go, baby.
It was a conservative President who sat in a classroom reading to children about a pet goat while the country was suffering its worst attack ever.
It was a conservative administration whose first response to the savagery of 9/11 was to hustle the family members of the attack's ringleader out of the country by any means necessary.
It was a conservative administration whose advice to the shell-shocked and grieving populace was simply: go shopping.
It was a conservative administration that thought the best way to find perpetrators was to announce, weeks before it happened, that they were going to bomb the country where they thought the terrorists might be.
It was a conservative Secretary 0f Defense who told the administration's top terror analyst, "There aren't any good targets in Afghanistan. Let's bomb Iraq."
It was a conservative administration that tried everything possible to block an investigation into what happened on 9/11.
It was a conservative administration that assembled a firestorm of ginned-up "intelligence" to justify a pre-emptive war against a country that had nothing to do with 9/11.
It was a conservative administration that both praised and promoted those most closely responsible for the greatest intelligence failures in the history of the United States. Go team!
It was a conservative government that decided they could wage war on the cheap, denying soldiers the equipment they need in the field, and denying veterans the health care they deserve when they come home.
It was a conservative administration who blacked out passages from the (eventual) 9/11 report dealing with the country where most of the 9/11 attackers came from: Saudi Arabia.
It is a conservative President who can't catch the perpetrator of 9/11 after nearly four years, and in fact "doesn't spend that much time on him" at this point.
It's a conservative Congress that wants to renege on $125 million in aid to injured and sick Ground Zero workers.
It is conservatives who use the dead bodies of those who perished on 9/11 as a cudgel with which to beat their political enemies.
So Karl, in the immortal words of Vice President Dick Cheney: Go fuck yourself.
