Letter to my friend the faux liberal

I call him faux because he's to the right of everyone who has ever lived on the war issue. I have to give credit where it's due, and at least he has an actual answer to what he'd have done differently than George Bush, which is attack Iran and Syria instead of Iraq. Kind of seductively nuts. Anyway, I say we're going to end up there, but we did this first. Hope it was the right way to go about it.

The letter:

So you seem like a single-issue guy to me right now. How's the Democratic party better than Bush, any of it, and especially Kerry, on the war? (OK, Lieberman I can live with, and would have voted for) You know Kerry's going to cut and run even though that's only the last opinion he's voiced on the matter. It's always been what he'll do if he wins. How does that make him worth a vote from you? It's one thing to say W went about terrorism in the wrong way, but to be promoting failure in Iraq with that treasonous piece of shit Joe Lockhart and scaremongering about a draft bill sponsored by goddamned Democrats is just despicable. He's not credible on the war and just wants terrorism to go away by virtue of the moral power of the global community, or something equally vapid. He's a ninny with a history of rooting for the other side in times of war.

I understand you have problems with W. We all do. Why is Kerry better?
