Can Conservatives Be Funny?

OK, here’s a different kind of post for you to consider. Can conservatives be funny? Can a right-wing version of “The Daily Show” survive? Fox is going to debut their version of Jon Stewart on Sunday night, so I share this with you to let you know about the show in case you want to tune in.

Personally, I think the show faces an uphill fight if only because they lack Jon Stewart. He is the key to “The Daily Show.” He is such a gifted comedian, but also a skilled interviewer who was able to hold his own again the likes of Christopher Hitchens.

So here are a few paragraphs from today’s LA Times to tell you more about the show. That opening skit does sound clever.

“Intended by its conservative creators as a counterbalance to “The Daily Show” and “The Colbert Report” on Comedy Central, “The 1/2 -Hour News Hour” premieres Sunday at 7 p.m. and will satirize current events and pop culture from a distinctly right of center viewpoint. Much like the 24-hour news channel itself, the show is out to fill a void in the marketplace, which the show’s creators perceive as decidedly liberal.

“We thought it would be fun to have some unabashedly conservative entertainment,” said Manny Coto, one of the show’s creators and executive producers. “Our audience will be the millions who tune in to Rush Limbaugh and like-minded people who want that same kind of acerbic commentary and liberal bashing they get on his radio show everyday.”

Added Ned Rice, another one of the show’s creators and writers: “We’re after the half of the country that doesn’t think Jon Stewart is the only comedy that is needed.”

Their show opens with something unlikely to be seen anytime soon on Stewart’s “The Daily Show” or “Saturday Night Live.” Limbaugh appears as the president of the United States and acid-tongued author Ann Coulter is his vice president.

The skit takes place in 2009 and is a joke, of course. Limbaugh was corralled into appearing in the skit by Joel Surnow, the show’s executive producer and creator. The two struck up a friendship four years ago as a result of Limbaugh’s enthusiasm for Surnow’s hugely successful action-thriller program, “24.”

Hollywood isn’t exactly choking on a conservative talent pool, Surnow said, who nevertheless rejected the idea a liberal agenda has suppressed a program like his in the past.

“I just don’t think there are a lot of conservative writers and most of them are probably apolitical or lean some to the left,” he said. “There may be a little barrier to entry, but talent will eventually mow those down.”

The ” 1/2 -Hour News Hour” is structured in a mock news format like “The Daily Show,” but instead of a single anchor, there are two. As billed, the first show takes aim at Democratic politicians, environmentalists and the American Civil Liberties Union.”

    COPY-N-PASTE LEFTY LIBERAL RAGS THAT ARE GOING DOWN THE TUBES! WELL DAVE AT LEAST YOU ARE CONSISTENT!
    FOX CABLE NEWS HAS THE TOP 13 OUT OF 15 CABLE SHOWS! ORIELLY BEATS HIS COMPETITION BY DOUBLE ALL THE OTHER COMBINED! HANNITY RULES TV AND RADIO, AND RUSH IS IN A CLASS BY HIMSELF!
    FOX TV HAS THE TOP 2 SHOWS ON TV! AND WILL DOMINATE TV WITH “AMERICAN IDLE” FOR THE NEXT 3 MONTHS!
    BOTTOM LINE…FOX RULES WHATEVER THEY TACKLE!
    JOHN STEWARTS LISTENERS ARE LIBERAL HIGH COLLEGE STUDENTS AND OLD FARTS HAVING A MID LIFE CRISIS AND HIGH AS WELL! HIS RATINGS ARE NOTHING COMPARED TO OTHER NETWORKS.

    SO WHAT’S YOUR POINT DAVE? OR ARE YOU GOING TO USE THE LA TIMES BY COPY-N-PASTE?

    THE LEFT HATES THAT AIR AMERICA WENT DOWN IN FLAMES! THEY ARE PISSED ABOUT HANNITY & RUSH…AND THEIR SKIN CRAWLS EVERY TIME ORIELLY GETS ANOTHER ACTIVIST LIBERAL JUDGE FIRED!

    NOTHING YOU THROW AT FOX ON REGULAR TV, RADIO, OR CABLE CAN EVEN DENT THEM!

    THIS NEW COMEDY SHOW WILL KICK ASS BECAUSE FOX KNOWS ITS BUSINESS…NOT LIKE LIBERAL NBC WHO IS DEAD IN THE WATER AFTER A 400,000 LISTENER SWITCH TO ABC LAST WEEK.

    CONTRARY TO WHAT YOU THINK, AMERICA IS TIRED OF THE LEFT MEDIA LYING AND BENDING THE NEWS…AND I WOULD THINK DAVE WOULD TAKE THE HINT THAT LIBERAL HATE RADIO IS DEAD MEAT IN AMERICA!

    FOX WILL SUCCEED, AND THE LEFT HATES THAT ALMOST AS MUCH AS THEY HATE OUR PRESIDENT AND OUR MILITARY!

    I HAVE A FEW QUESTIONS DAVE? WILL YOU ANSWER?
    1) WHERE DID YOU FIND THESE COWARDS FOR WEDNESDAYS SHOW?
    2) WHO IS PAYING FOR THEIR TRIP HERE?
    3) WHAT IS HAPPENING WITH THE SALE OF KVEC?

    The Iraq Veterans Against the War will be on my show THURSDAY from 4:30 to 6. They are part of a caravan touring California.

    I invite you, actually I dare you, to call in to the show and call them cowards.

    There is no news to report on the upcoming KVEC sale. When it happens, we’ll let you know. Promise.

    I am what you would call a South Park conservative and thought the show’s clips on YouTube were quiet funny. A politically incorrect comedy site called ourcountry.com is already making conservative comedy on the net. It seems only nature that Fox News will try to do the same.

    “Everybody HATE, HATE, you HATE, we HATE, they all HATE. HATE HATE HATE. Come on now- I HATE, you HATE, everyone HATE HATE.”

    Boy, that’s a lot of HATE. I guess that is all you can come up with when you listen to the mad haters- Hannity, O’reilly, Limbaugh, and Savage.

    Those of us who DO support the troops want them to have the proper equipment…and want them to know we are BEHIND them 100 per cent. We send them the message that we BACK them and THANK them..for trying to make the world a safer place….we don’t go on radio shows speaking against the war or on blogs speaking against the war. I am sure that it was VERY hard for everyone during World War II….but the Country was patient, pulled together, sacrificed for the common good & we prevailed. There are many folks from all over the world who are forever grateful for these AMERICAN sacrifices. God Bless America…there really is not a better place to live….not perfect…but pretty wonderful….and it is up to us to live up to the caliber of the “Greatest Generation”.

    Look, as the resident Iraq War veteran on this blog, I have to tell you, Jerry, that you are wrong to call them cowards. If they went to Iraq, served and did their duty, then they are not cowards. Honorable service is honorable service, regardless of whetehr or not they feel that the military and/or Bush wasted their time and effort in the process. So, knock off disrespecting veterans that had more guts than you to “strap it on” and serve their country. The piece of crap LT that refused to even go over to Iraq is the real coward. You feel the need to call someone a coward, taht’s the guy you should be targeting, not the guys that actually went.

    I plan on listening in on Thursday (schedule permitting). I am interested in: where in Iraq they were, what jobs they held, what kind of social interaction they had with Iraqis, did they even leave the FOBs they were on (they could bne like the MSM that likes to hide in the Green Zone)? All of the answers to those questions influence what kind of opinion they might have formed while in Iraq. Most importantly, I want to know if a) what they did in Iraq was honorable (if it wasn’t then they must have done something criminal) and b) if we cut and run from Iraq, how will they feel about being forced to lose the Iraq War?

    As for conservatives being funny, Dennis Miller is a born-again conservative (i.e. he was liberal, now he is conservative) and find his wit rapier sharp. I think I am hilarious.

    Dave,

    What is up with Rich and this “only resident Iraq war veteran on this blog” business? Is there such a thing? Did you appoint him or did he appoint himself? Talk about humility. Maybe someone is paying him? Hey, the other vets are accused of that! Please get him on your show one more time and give us a break, will you?

    I mean, with all the anonymous people posting, how do we know that some of them are not veterans or current soldiers?

    Can I get a residency too (I’m just kidding of course. It is so childish)? I lived in the Middle East for 26 years. Does that count for anything? Rich was still in diapers when I saw my first war and I did not live inside the “Green Zone” or the barracks. In fact it was smack dab ON THE GREEN LINE (or Red line).

    And what is up with accusations leveled at these young men? We know nothing about them and already the smear campaigns are flying. There MUST be something wrong with them because they are against the war! Riiiight!

    Also, there is this new delusion floating around pro-war circles these days, that the reason we are not doing well in Iraq is because there is not enough support for the war. Figure that one out. Hey, maybe we should all go down to the recruiting office on Broad Street and sign up, oldest person first, for one final surge, the mother of all surges. Maybe then we will win the war and, while we are at it, let’s ration our food (after all kids are going to be working. Who else is going to run the country while the men are being surged?), our petrol, no more than one pair of shoes a year, no more driving Humvees and vans around, fish and meat only once a week, reducing electricity and water usage (that means taking a bath once every two weeks only), etc., etc. That is true support for the war effort. That’s what people did during WWII.

    What about the fact that WE HAD NO PLAN when we went in there in 2003? Could it also be that stability was not on the agenda of this occupation, but the occupation itself was?

    The pro-war gangs are cutting and running now. They realize Iraq is a bust and they are blaming everyone except the criminals who started the war AND LIED ABOUT IT!

    Dave,

    The other day you said that Reagan was the worst father in the white house ever. I am sure there are worst, and Reagan could have been bad, but I feel sorry for Chelsey Clinton. They say that having a cheating father is the worst. Having a rapist and sexual battering father is sad, and when they girls are your same age as in Monica that is enough to make you totally sick and turn into a lesbian.

    what website are you talking about? the ivaw.org site? What problem do you have with that site? – seems pretty straightforward to me. I would encourage everyone here to check it out, btw. But jerry, seriously, how can you sit there and call these men and women cowards? I’ll put in parlance you can comprehend – THEY SERVED AND YOU DIDNT!!! Read Rich’s post a few lines up – he thinks you’re wrong too.
    So why don’t you answer my question? Or better yet, how about this question – what have you done to serve your country?

  24. Rich from Paso
    February 19, 2007 at 4:14 am

    Marilyn, allow me to clarify: I am the only publically identified Iraq War vet here. It’s not conceit, it’s just a reality. I know more about the fight there than you simply by being there. You claim to know more by being Lebanese as if all Arabs are the same and your happenstance of birthplace gives you insight to this fight. But if you did fight in Iraq who’s side did you fight on: Iraq’s or Iran’s? Furthermore, I was DEFENDING the anti-war vets right to be heard against Jerry’s slander of them.

    Beyond all that, you are truely kooky with all of your made up theories on what the “pro-war” side is saying. I have more faith that Jerry is on to something about the “Tokyo Rose” charge than your whack job pronouncements and anti-America, not anti-American, comments.

    OK ROB…YOU SAW THE WEBSITE. GOOD! NOW ANSWER ME THIS:
    TELL ME ABOUT THE 2 ORGANIZATIONS FUNDING THIS GROUP.
    YOU WANT A DISCUSSION. DO YOU HOMEWORK AND WE CAN START THERE.

    AND RICH,
    TO CLARIFY MY COMMENT ABOUT THESE CLOWNS, ONE OF 2 THINGS HAPPENED.
    1) THEY WERE AGAINST THE WAR AS THEY WERE FIGHTING IT…OR
    2) THEY WERE BOUGHT OFF FOR THE PURPOSE OF BRING DISRESPECT TO OUR TROOPS THERE, AND AMERICA.

    IF IT WAS #1 THEN THEY COMPRAMIZED THEIR FELLOW SOLDIERS WHILE SERVING, AND MAY HAVE CAUSED SOME TO DIE IF THEY WERE APPRENHENSIVE ABOUT THE WAR. THUS COWARDS.

    IF IT WAS #2, THEN THESE CLOWNS ARE COWARDS! THEY TOOK THEIR 5-10,000 DOLLAR SIGNING BONUS, TOOK THE BEST OUT COUNTRY CAN OFFER A SOLDIER, BUT DID IT WITH A HIDDEN AGENDA…THUS COWARDS.

    SERVING DOESN’T MAKE YOU A PATRIOT OR A HERO, HOW YOU SERVE AND THE ESTEEM WITH WHICH YOU HOLD THAT SERVICE DOES!

    AND FOR THE RECORD, I GRADUATED IN 1972. THEY PULLED NUMBERS AND DRAFTED THE CLASS OF 70, PULLED NUMBERS AND DID NOT DRAFT THE CLASS OF 71, AND NEVER PULLED NUMBERS NOR DRAFTED FOR THE CLASS OF 72. I WENT TO COLLEGE AND ALWAYS SUPPORTED OUR TROOPS AND MY COUNTRY!

    SECONDLY, THE FATHER OF MY GRANDSON IS SERVING IN IRAQ NOW!

    SO STFU ROB YOU COWARD PEICE OF SHIT COMMIE PRICK!

    Jerry, my thanks and god bless to your grandson. Look, I don’t care if they were against the war while they were fighting it. As I said, honorable service is honorable service. I don’t care if they are the most kooky left-wing Bush hating liberals on the planet so long as they executed the order of the man they hate the same as if their own mother was asking them to do that job. I have the utmost respect for those individuals so long as their service was characterized as honorable. So long as they are out of the military, they can rub baby oil on George Soros’ backside for all I care. When they become civilians they can do whatever they want. Their service in the military and in Iraq has earned them to earn an income in any legal means they choose.

    Well, I’m back in town after spending the weekend with my frail and feeble 91-year-old parents in the nursing home. Jerry, sorry that they get top priority over your “questions” about Thursday’s show with our distinguished Iraqi war veterans.

    What is this, “The Ox-Box Incident”? Why don’t we just get a rope and hang those assholes? Why would we ever want to listen to what they have to say? It’s not like this is the United States, where everyone has the right to express an opinion, or anything.

    As I have said repeatedly, what is the point of fighting for democracy in Iraq if we don’t have democracy here?

    So I say to Jerry and to Rich and everyone else — TUNE IN ON THURSDAY AND HEAR WHAT THEY FOLKS HAVE TO SAY. AND CALL IN IF YOU WANT TO CHALLENGE THEM.

    And Rich may be our resident Iraqi vet and we all applaud his service, but my point continues to be that he serves in fantasyland right now. Iraq has changed radically since he’s been over there.

    How many more people killed today? Hooray for the surge!

C’MON DAVE! YOU ARE GRASPING AT STRAWS HERE. STEP UP AND DO THE RIGHT THING AND ANSWER THE QUESTIONS!
    4) YOU CALL YOUR GUESTS “DISTINGUISHED”. I FIND THAT INTERESTING AND DOUBTFUL. SO WHY NOT PUBLISH HERE THE NAMES OF YOUR GUESTS, WHAT BRANCH OF THE MILITARY THEY SERVED IN, AND WHEN THEY WERE THERE, AND WHERE THEY SERVED? WHY ARE YOU SO AFRAID OF MAKING THAT INFORMATION PUBLIC? THE SHROUD OF DECEIT IS TUCKED TIGHTLY AROUND YOUR LACK OF FULL DISCLOSURE.
    5) YOU STATE THAT WE DON’T HAVE A DEMOCRACY IN AMERICA. DAVE! YOU ARE LOSING IT BUD! HOW BRAINWASHED ARE YOU BY TOKYO ROSE, AND YOUR LIBERAL LEANING MSM? YOU MAY BE DIGGING A HOLE YOU CAN’T GET OUT OF. ARE YOU SURE YOU WANT TO STAKE YOUR 15 YEARS ON THIS WAR? THINK IT THROUGH!
    6) YOU GO ON TO STATE “Why would we ever want to listen to what they have to say?” WELL FIRST OF ALL THEY ARE FROM A VERY QUESTIONABLE GROUP. SECOND, WE ARE AT WAR DAVE WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT! AND WE DIDN’T START THIS WAR…THEY DECLARED WAR ON US ON 9-11. THIRD, THIS GROUP IS CLOSELY TIED TO “CODE PINK”…A GROUP NOT EVEN HILLARY CLINTON WILL GIVE THE TIME OF DAY TO…YET YOU ARE SO WILLING TO PUT THEM ON YOUR SHOW…BIG RISK FOR YOU DAVE!
    7) YOU GO ON TO SAY “How many more people killed today? Hooray for the surge!” YOU HAVE SAID SOME PRETTY DUMB THINGS BEFORE DAVE BUT THAT ONE TAKES THE CAKE! WE ARE AT WAR! AND THOUSANDS OF BRAVE MEN & WOMEN ARE VERY COMMITTED TO WINNING THAT WAR FOR THE IRAQI PEOPLE AND TO KEEP YOUR ASS SAFE HERE AT HOME.

    FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS GOOD TAKE YOUR TONGUE OUT OF YOUR CHEEK AND SHOW SOME FREAKING RESPECT! I AM BEGINNING TO VERY CONCERNED FOR YOU. VERY!

    SO NOW IS THE TIME DAVE TO FULFILL YOUR COMMITMENT TO PROPER JOURNALISM. TO FAIRNESS AND TRUTH. AND COME 100% CLEAN ON THIS GROUP.
    TELL US THEIR NAMES, SERVICE DATES, ARMED FORCES AND LOCATION THEY SERVED IN. TELL US HOW MUCH THEIR SIGNING BONUS WAS…TELL US!

    WE ASK/DEMAND THAT YOU DISCLOSE THIS INFO?

    WHO IS SPONSORING THIS “CARAVAN” DAVE?

    WHO IS PAYING THEIR EXPENSES?

    WHO IS THE CONTACT ORGANIZATION ON THE CENTRAL COAST THAT BOOK THIS CARAVAN TOUR HERE?

    HOW MUCH DO THESE “GUESTS” EARN FROM BEING INVOLVED WITH THIS GROUP?

    IS THERE A FEE? OR DONATION KVEC IS MAKING?

    THIS IS ALL VERY SUSPECT DAVE…IF THE TABLES WERE TURNED YOU WOULD BE OUTRAGED!

I know more people in Iraq TODAY than you, Tom and Ben have fingers and toes… and I talk to them about what is going on. Furthermore, I know more IRAQIS in Iraq than you have fingers and toes. Yes, Iraq has changed since I was there, but it is YOU Dave that are in fantasyland if you think that the US can just leave Iraq and the country will act like we were never there and have their own “Hands across Iraq” where Sunnis, Kurds and Shia will have a big group hug like long lost relatives. There will be death and desruction not seen since Cambodia, where, once again, pacifist liberals turned their backs on millions of people leaving them to be slaughtered. You, my friend, are so consumed with hatred for Bush and loathing for this war that you are no longer able to see anything through that lense of hate. You mind is closed like the doors to Copeland’s.

    Four (not five, not six not fourteen, or forty, only four) serivcemembers were killed over the weekend in Iraq… how many Americans were killed by drunk drivers, in robberies or by faulty drug prescriptions this weekend?

    The truth is that a whole big bunch of us never served in Vietnam and were perfectly content to just be happy we weren’t there and went to college. I think it is wrong to give people a hard time over not going when just about everyone didn’t want to go to S.E. Asia; I know I didn’t. Not because I hated the war or anything, but because we had the lottery and if my number was called I’d have gone, but I wasn’t going to stay home until my number was called so I just got on with my life. Does that make me a coward or a bad person? My wife and grown children don’t think so.

    “SECOND, WE ARE AT WAR DAVE WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT! AND WE DIDN’T START THIS WAR…THEY DECLARED WAR ON US ON 9-11.”

    Jerry, you’ve lost your mind. Iraq never declared war on us. In fact there were weapons inspectors in Iraq looking for Weapons of Mass Destruction right up until the point they were pulled out because President Bush was getting ready to attack Iraq based on lies.

    The President of the United States flat out lied to the American public in order to justify an unjustifiable war. It’s that simple Jerry and you are too stupid to understand that.

    “if you think that the US can just leave Iraq and the country will act like we were never there and have their own “Hands across Iraq” where Sunnis, Kurds and Shia will have a big group hug like long lost relatives. There will be death and desruction not seen since Cambodia,”

    Just a quick question since I agree with your position.

    How is having U.S. troops stationed in Iraq going to change the feeling the different religious sects have toward each other.

    What is the difference if we leave now or leave 10 years from now. If they hate each other will they ever be able to get along. Or, is our involvement just postponing the inevitable.

    How do you create a stable Iraq?.

    Hey Jerry,

    If you think I am Tokyo Rose, why do you keep reading my blog and getting the information on the vets from it? (but I forget I am on YOUR terrorist watch list, aren’t I?).

    You copied it word for word from the blog events section. Hiwar
    You remind me of the people I talked about before, little men who have no self esteem and who get their proverbial oats sowed by putting others down and by attaching themselves to the “bullies.”

    If you feel strongly about your position, why don’t you start your own website to “expose” those cowards.

    You can’t even read or understand what you are spewing out. If anyone or any organization were “financing” these guys and gals, why would Code Pink be asking for gas money “donations” in their press release? And, it is not Code Pink who is sponsoring them at all. They have been on this tour on their own for months and the local activists in each community take them in and help them. It is a “grassroots” effort, oh MIGHTY patriot. Do you know what that means?

    Oh I forgot, you don’t believe in democracy, only fascism.

    If you knew anything about the troops or the people who truly support them, you would know that the person mainly responsible for connecting with these kids is an older lady we all admire and love; we call her “peace granny.”
    She is in her 80s (you wanna bash her too and call her a commie? You just try that!). One of her close relatives “served” in Iraq too.

    These vets are going to be staying in people’s homes, eating their food. They cannot afford to stay in fancy hotels and charge thousands of dollars for “speaking” engagements like your racist heroes, RUSH BIMBAH, SEAN BLABBERTY, AND MICHAEL SCAVANGE (hey that is something YOU would say Jerry, isn’t it?).

    It is thanks to her efforts that many of the kids in the county are involved in the peace effort. But you didn’t know that, did you because you only listen to one hate-filled source or another.

    I know the whole story behind their travels and I can tell you this, you armchair computer commando; they are young people and they have been on the road for many months. They are exhausted and they wish they could be home with their families (talk about another “tour of duty.” That qualifies for one in my book). This whole experience has been very hard for them.

    Have you ever tried traveling to advocate for what you believe in? I guess not.

    You should call in on Thursday and ask them yourself. You should be embarrassed by your hypocritical and stalking like behavior, but I forget: you have no shame.

    Your stated support for the troops is nothing but a front for your and others’ warmongering. If you truly support the troops, you support ALL of them because our support for them stems from the fact that they were deceived into this war and, as a group (whether some agree with the war or not), they and their families have suffered tremendously and many still are having a difficult time. What anyone thinks about the war should not be a reflection on how we value them as a human being (a Christian spirit you do not seem to grasp very well).

    I sometimes think you must be some kind of masochist who enjoys exposing himself to such ridicule to get attention. Sometimes I can’t tell if you are just a lonely old man who doesn’t get any at home and who is angry at the world. Sometimes I wonder if you’re just a prick who just likes to play around. Sometimes I wonder why I even respond to your stupid comments and, there, I have to wonder about myself.

    But I guess when you attack vulnerable young people who’ve already been through a lot at such a young age and who are struggling to do the right thing morally and physically, that is IT.

    I can’t believe I just wasted 15 minutes out of my life smearing the floor with you knowing full well you will come back in a minute to start your barking.

    I have to go! I have a lot of things to do.

    To ask that question, I guess that you don’t know anything about Bosnia. The Bosnians, Serbs and Croats had been killing each other since the Ottoman Empire (about 200 years). We, the United States, stepped in between warring factions and ended the genocide that the Serbs were putting on the Muslims. The main difference is that the three parties there wanted the violence to end. We are still there more than 10 years later. As for Iraq, you still have three parties: Kurds, who are content to be left alone, the Sunnis, who are still pissed at not being in control, and the Shia that have no experience being in control and are heavily influenced by Iran. The issue here is that the average everyday Kurd, Sunni and Shia don’t want to fight each other. It is the extremes of each group that is fueling the violence going on over there. The way to build a stable Iraq is for the US to provide the umbrella under which a coalition of those Sunnis, Shia and Kurds can build their government, security and military forces to provide the forces to fight the insurgency while giving the common populace all of the reasons why not to support the insurgency. Reasons such as: services, power, water, medicine, security, etc. which we have been doing every day that we have been there. That’s how you build a stable Iraq.

    Furthermore, there is NO WAY we can lose in Iraq so long as we don’t choose to quit. WHAT DID HE JUST SAY?!?!?! Yes, that’s right, there is no way the US can lose so long as we choose not to lose. How so, Rich?
    Well, every insurgency goes through three stages (and this is in the counterinsurgency manual Field Manual 3-24 based on principles developed by Mao Zedong; this is the manual that Gen. Patreus has his name on, btw) Stage 1: War of Defense: this is where insurgency fights for its existance as we saw from April and November of 03. Stage 2 is Stalemate. This stage has been going on since November of 03. It is characterized by the insurgents working against the host nation to keep the civilian government from capitalizing on advances. Stage 3 is offensive which is characterized by force on force battles for terrain where the insurgency has a superior force to take on the host nation or foreign force. The American Revolution was an insurgency that started out as a ragtag army fighting for existnace(stage 1), evolved into a well-organized fight that kept the British at bay (stage 2), and became a war with Gen. Washington taking the offense and we won. The Vietnam War was an insurgency that started off as a ragtag bunch of insurgents called the Viet Minh (stage 1) evolved into a well coordinated effort of the VietCong that culminated with the first Tet Offensive (stage 2), then became a offensive war of movement as the NVA invaded South Vietnam with superior forces (stage 3) and we ended up losing. We WILL NOT see stage 3 in Iraq so long as another nation doesn’t invade Iraq, like Iran or Syria. The insurgency is too small and uncoordinated to mass forces into a moving army. The field manual also goes on to state that the only way for the foriegn forces or the host nation (HN) to lose to an insurgency is if the army or the HN loses its will to fight. It says it right there in black and white. In Field Manual 3-07.22, it also states that “Inflicting an unsustainable level of pain on HN or external military forces may eliminate the need to form main force units. Pressure from within the HN or country providing the forces may lead to capitualtion or withdrawal. In attacking democratic societies, insurgents using this approach attempt to tap the purported aversion of democratic societies to protracted, costly conflicts that appear endless. They seak to break the will of the state to continue the struggle.” (page 1-9, para 1-33) So there you have it: the insurgents are banking on all you liberals to fight not to win, but to quit the fight. They need YOU to keep pushing your anti-surge, anti-war, anti-funding resolutions so you can help them break the American will to fight. Yes, I am saying that you are aiding the enemy to defeat us in Iraq by working to break the will of the American people to stay in Iraq, even though you think that your efforts are somehow noble in spirit.

    Just thought of something else: I find it ironic that the Dems campaigned on “changing course in Iraq” away from “stay the course” as Bush was blasted for saying. When he does change course with “the surge”, the Dems blast him for not changing course their way, which is to surrender Iraq to the insurgents, terrorists and, ultimately, Iran. It is the Democrats that advocate “stay the course” with their anti-surge resolutions.

You notice he never calls when anyone who can construct ANY kind of contrary argument is on – people like Michelle Dostert, Dawn Legg, Marilyn Farhat, etc… jerry lacks the intellectual flexibility to actually debate an issue. He can only cut and paste, make up, or outright palagiarize to come up with his “facts”. I’m so sure he won’t call, I’m willing to bet $100 that jerry won’t call. Hell, I’ll even pay him $100 to call – it would be worth it to me for all to hear the magnificent combination of ignorance and arrogance that is jerry dagna

    “Can conservatives be funny?” Only if your sense of humor allows you to view the military prison camp on Cuba as “Club Gitmo” or the prisoner abuse at Abu Garib as the same as “a collage hazing prank”. I ventured over to the Fox News website and viewed a clip of the new show. I’m sure the righties will love it, so long as they can stay awake long enough for the show to come on. I’ll wager that Fox did enough research as to the most effective duration and volume for the annoying laugh track the show has.

    JerryD: You are making some very odd accusations about the IVAW group coming to San Luis Obispo; if you have some factual information that you would like to share with us, please do so, but stop the insinuations. Your accusations come across as hollow and meaningless without any further information for us to consider. I’ll even suffer through your all caps comments, if you have something to say with some facts or links that show facts to back up what you are trying to imply.

    BOB, I DID MY HOMEWORK ON THIS SORROS VENTURE THAT ABUSES AND USES RETURNING IRAQ VETERANS.

    I WILL NOT SHARE IT HERE FOR MANY REASONS. I DON’T WANT TO TRUMP THE WORK WE ARE DOING BEHIND THE SCENES.

    BUT YOUR SHOULD BE VERY CONCERNED ABOUT:
    1) WHO IS FUNDING THIS GROUP
    2) WHO SPONSORED THIS “CARAVAN” TO LIBERAL SLO
    3) THE PERSON(S) RESPONSIBLE FOR BOOKING THEM TO TALK AT 2 LOCAL HIGH SCHOOLS. (this is a travesty!)
    4) THE 2 MAJOR FOUNDATIONS THE BACK FUND THIS GROUP
    5) THE INTENDED PURPOSE OF THIS GROUP (BEYOND WHAT THEY STATE)
    6) THE FACT THAT THE FULL ITINERARY WAS ON TOKYO ROSE’S WEBSITE (SHE IS A COMMITTED AMERICA HATER AND A HEZBOLLAH SYMPATHIZER)
    7) THE FACT THAT “CODE PINKO” IS SPONSORING A MAJOR FUND RAISING BBQ ON THEIR BEHALF
    8) AND MOST IMPORTANTLY…
    THAT DAVE REFUSES TO ANSWER A FEW BASIC QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS GROUP AND WHY THEY ARE HERE! AND WHY HE ALLOWED THIS SCAM ON HIS SHOW.
    HE EITHER KNEW BEFORE HE BOOKED THEM ON THE SHOW AND HAS HIS OWN AGENDA, OR HE DIDN’T KNOW AND NOW IS TOO EMBARRASSED AND PROUD TO ADMIT HE GOT HAD!

    EITHER WAY THIS SCAM IS BAD NEWS! THEIR MOTIVES ARE DISINGENUOUS AND DISHONEST. THESE SOLDIERS (MANY OF WHICH ARE SUFFERING FROM PTSD) ARE BEING USED AS PUPPETS.

    MARILYN AND HE PEACENIK CRONIES HAVE ALMOST PULLED OFF THE PERFECT SCAM…AND SHE ABUSED HER “FRIENDSHIP” WITH DAVE TO GET HIM TO PUT THEM ON THE AIR.

    DIG DEEP BOB, FIND OUT THE TRUTH, I WOULD BE INTERESTED IN YOUR ASSESSMENT AND OPINIONS.

    AS FOR THE REST OF YOU…NEWS FLASH! THE EMPEROR REALLY DOESN’T HAVE ANY CLOTHES ON! WAKE UP! YOU ARE BEING HAD!

    BOB, AT LEAST CONSIDER THIS…WITH ALL THE GROUPS AND SERVICE CLUBS TO TALK WHILE THEY ARE HERE, WHY DO “YOU” THINK THEY SPENT THEIR EFFORTS TO GET THESE (out of respect for Rich I will call them) VETERANS IN FRONT OF HIGH SCHOLL STUDENTS? PRO WAR OR ANTI WAR ARE YOU NOT CONCERNED ABOUT THIS?

    WOULD NOT YOUR EYEBROWS RAISE HIGH IF A “SPECIAL INTERST” GROUP WITH A GROUP OF PRO WAR, PRO MILITARY VETERANS WERE WORKING DILIGENTLY AND DISHONESTLY TO GET THEM IN FRONT OF HIGH SCHOLL STUDENTS?

    i WILL RESPECTFULLY AWAIT YOUR ANSWER BOB.

    “Four times during McCarthy’s February 20 speech, Democratic Senator Scott W. Lucas demanded McCarthy make the 81 names public, but McCarthy refused to do so, saying: “If I were to give all the names involved, it might leave a wrong impression. If we should label one man a Communist when he is not a Communist, I think it would be too bad.” In fact, McCarthy had no actual names.”

    Sure, conservatives laugh, and their humor is sublime. You’d just never know it by the heckling it gets from the Left.

    For instance, I’d give anything to see a news story on Ann Coulter’s “faggot” comment that actually reported the context of her joke, which was that every time someone uses a perjorative or racist word, they have to go into rehab. It was a joke, people; I know humor is difficult for those to whom attacking the Left is akin to a religious assault, but get a life! Ann wasn’t calling anyone names, she wasn’t dissing gays, she was making a point that people who use politically incorrect words get sentenced to rehab.

    I have never seen the anti-right go into such meltdown and all because of an insult they manufactured because they were too humor-impaired to recognize irony.

    The mournful wail you hear isn’t the pain of the GLBT community, it is the tortured agony of a joke being brutally ripped out of its context by the chip-shouldered PC police.
