Go on! Give us the finger!

Purple finger, that is.

I was on my way to work, and Hugh Hewitt continues to be one of the "go-to guys" when it comes to intelligent perspective and immediate coverage of what's going on, that matters to us in the world.

According to him, Iraq the Model and PajamasMedia will be places we will want to keep our refresh buttons on, as the Iraqi people "get out the vote". By tomorrow morning, you'll want to check in for the latest in photos and possibly live coverage. History is unfolding before our very eyes, and if the naysayers and defeatocrats don't climb on board, they will look back and find themselves as having stood on the wrong side of history as obstructionists.

Even mainstream media seems to be waking up. Hugh Hewitt had a soundclip from ABC or some station interviewing an Iraqi woman who said something to the effect that those who are criticizing President Bush and saying bad things about them: "let them all go to hell."
Go Iraq!

Wordsmith -

This is just a quick and simple little thing for folks to do tomorrow - a personal statement for this historic election in Iraq. WSe should not only do this to show support for the Iraqis, but also our own troops who have sacrificed so much to make this happen.

Celebrate Purple Finger Day!

Smithy, The actual quote is this:

"Anybody who doesn’t appreciate what America has done and President Bush, let them go to hell." – Iraqi Citizen, voter Betty Dawisha

Seems the Democrats and the media don't hear that for some reason.

I have the video of that clip up at Mike's America. It's a great visual and powerful audio. This woman with her purple stained finger looks ready to shove it right up Congressman Murthas ##*@&@.

I'd like to see Betty Dawisha in a room with Cindy Sheehan.

Yeah, I saw it. I had visited your blog earlier today, but didn't post, Mike. I just didn't have time to blog a link to a couple of your great posts and some others I saw.

Who knew that the moment of satisfaction/happiness over the election would last only one day to be replaced by a day of NYTimes hit piece revelation. A revelation that just happened to coincide with the debate over the Patriot Act. Coincidences or coordinated?
