Lautenberg stands up


New Jersey Democratic Sen. Frank Lautenberg sharply criticized Bush for the "bring them on" comment.

"I am shaking my head in disbelief. When I served in the army in Europe during World War II, I never heard any military commander -- let alone the commander in chief -- invite enemies to attack U.S. troops," said Lautenberg in a statement.

aWol's comment would be funny if it weren't so disgusting, and if lives weren't at stake.

When his silly posturing gets people killed, what will he tell the families? And how is he able to sleep nights?

UPDATE: Alert readers point out that aWol's inane comments might well be just playing to his domestic base, now that he's in fund-raising mode. The point being?

Alert reader Dave John points to The Drudge Report, which is giving aWol's rock-stupid remark big play.

Funny, in Drudge's photo (this is the best they can do?) Bush is starting to look a little, well, blotchy again. I wonder why?
