Rick Perry, prattling in Iowa today:
It really disturbs me that nearly after nine years of war in Iraq that this president wouldn’t welcome home our many heroes with a simple parade in their honor. Maybe it’s because this war is unpopular with the Democrats.... Give them that parade. Give them that pat on the back. Tell them thank you for the freedom that we have.
You know what? Even cheap demagoguery doesn't excuse the failure -- in this case, a twofold failure -- to avoid the "non" of non sequiturs.
In the first place, Mr. Perry, "this war" that is no more became nearly as unpopular with Republicans. And second, please inform as to precisely what freedoms we have that that unAmerican war protected?
