  1. This guy Rall is the epitome of scum. I’ve seen him interviewed a couple of times by sean hannity on hannity & Colmes. Needless to say, Sean rips him up side and down the other. This guy is the worst of the worst.

  2. The irony of the Nobel post above the Ted Rall post is a good thing. Everyone should see these two items together. Of course most SANE people would want to vomit afterwards…on Ted Rall.

  3. Oh I don’t know–I’ve gone another way. I’ve trained my dog to equate Ted Rall with a fire hydrant.

  5. Damn, I feel like I need to shower after seeing that, like somehow, if I read it, and don’t immediately kick the crap out of him, I’m complicit in his vileness.

  6. I wouldn’t lay a hand on Rall…

    I don’t like to get that kinda stuff on my hands…

    Don’t say anything that he could interpret as a threat, or he’ll whine about it for the next ten years.

  8. Plus, getting upset over a cartoon is rather unseemly.

  9. I keep wondering when we’ll use Rall to bash Pelosi, Reid and crew. How about Hillary, Obama and Edwards…. probably never.

    And the infuriating thing is that people like Rall (on any side of the argument) are immune to being bashed. He obviously enjoys testing out career suicide belts and “gets off” on it at some level.

    Doesn’t matter though. I’d still like to see televised polygraph tests on a lot of politicians where they’re asked if they agree with Rall’s cartoon. Primetime and live with news clips running for a week afterwards showing the wildly swinging needle and experts galore explaining patiently how unreliable polygraphs are.

    Don’t worry, alphie. You’re not really bothering anybody.

    Perhaps you should broach this topic with all of the jihadis objectors of the Dreaded Cartoons of Blasphemy, alphie.

  12. You don’t suppport the troops Pat, you support the war.

    Polled published, Feb 2006:
    Different branches had quite different sentiments on the question, the poll shows. While 89% of reserves and 82% of those in the National Guard said the U.S. should leave Iraq within a year, 58% of Marines think so. Seven in ten of those in the regular Army thought the U.S. should leave Iraq in the next year. Moreover, about three-quarters of those in National Guard and Reserve units favor withdrawal within six months, just 15% of Marines felt that way. About half of those in the regular Army favored withdrawal from Iraq in the next six months.

    The troops have drawn different conclusions about fellow citizens back home. Asked why they think some Americans favor rapid U.S. troop withdrawal from Iraq, 37% of troops serving there said those Americans are unpatriotic, while 20% believe people back home don’t believe a continued occupation will work. Another 16% said they believe those favoring a quick withdrawal do so because they oppose the use of the military in a pre-emptive war, while 15% said they do not believe those Americans understand the need for the U.S. troops in Iraq.

    The wide-ranging poll also shows that 58% of those serving in country say the U.S. mission in Iraq is clear in their minds, while 42% said it is either somewhat or very unclear to them, that they have no understanding of it at all, or are unsure. While 85% said the U.S. mission is mainly “to retaliate for Saddam’s role in the 9-11 attacks,” 77% said they also believe the main or a major reason for the war was “to stop Saddam from protecting al Qaeda in Iraq.”

    “85% said the U.S. mission is mainly “to retaliate for Saddam’s role in the 9-11 attacks,”

    Who’s responsible for their basic of the facts ignorance Pat?

    Polling June 2007 in the US:
    “A majority of Americans were similarly unable to pick Saudi Arabia in a multiple-choice question about the country where most of the 9/11 hijackers were born. Just 43 percent got it right—and a full 20 percent thought most came from Iraq.”

    Who’s responsible for that?
    People like you Pat.

    If you are unable to understand why we are angry over Rall’s cartoon, we can’t ever explain it to you. It’s an inborn failing on your part that just can’t be fixed..

    Scott Jacobs (a1de9d)

  14. Who’s responsible for that?
    People like you Pat.

    How’s that? And how much of a running start did you get before you made that leap of logic?

  15. AF, I’ve always wondered why it matters where a hijacker is BORN, as opposed to what a hijacker BELIEVES….

    But, I digress…

    The reason that so many don’t know what you ask is because the MEDIA doesn’t tell them….the same MEDIA that doens’t call a terrorist a MUSLIM TERRORIST because they are afraid to challenge the BELIEF of the terrorist….which would be the most important thing….LIBERALS always want us to consider WHY terrorists do what they do….isn’t it because they BELIEVE in what they do???

  16. Ted is no worse than Ann Coulter here. With this panel he nails libs’ thinkology to a T. Of course he’s offensive, inappropriate, hurtful and jaded. I won’t condemn his latest scribble because it’s almost a parody (of Pelosi, Sheehan, Reid etc).

    But Ted left out the critical panel that has Allah calling for the killing of infidels and Christians. For a truly accurate response, peaceful Muslims need to speak out against the contents of this piece.

  17. NEW YORK For years, polls have shown that very large numbers of Americans continue to falsely believe that some of the 9/11 hijackers came from Iraq. In reality, the overwhelming number hailed from the land of a U.S. ally, Saudi Arabia.

    Now it turns out that Saudi Arabia is also home to the largest number of so-called “foreign fighters” in Iraq, despite administration efforts — aided by many in the media — to paint Iran and Syria as the main outside culprits there.

    The Los Angeles Times reports today that according to a senior U.S. military officer and Iraqi lawmakers, about 45% of all foreign militants “targeting U.S. troops and Iraqi civilians and security forces are from Saudi Arabia.” Only 15% are from Syria and Lebanon; and 10% are from North Africa. This is based on official U.S. military figures made available to newspaper by the senior officer.

    Nearly half of the 135 foreigners in U.S. detention facilities in Iraq are Saudis, he said.

    “Fighters from Saudi Arabia are thought to have carried out more suicide bombings than those of any other nationality, said the senior U.S. officer, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the subject’s sensitivity,” the Times’ Ned Parker writes. “It is apparently the first time a U.S. official has given such a breakdown on the role played by Saudi nationals in Iraq’s Sunni Arab insurgency.

    “He said 50% of all Saudi fighters in Iraq come here as suicide bombers. In the last six months, such bombings have killed or injured 4,000 Iraqis.

    “The situation has left the U.S. military in the awkward position of battling an enemy whose top source of foreign fighters is a key ally that at best has not been able to prevent its citizens from undertaking bloody attacks in Iraq, and at worst shares complicity in sending extremists to commit attacks against U.S. forces, Iraqi civilians and the Shiite-led government in Baghdad.”

    Yet hardly a word has been directed at Saudi Arabia (which also drew relatively little criticism after 9/11) by the White House and Pentagon.”

  18. Ted Rall’s cartoon was offensive and stupid, and frankly if he wants to convert people to his side, counterproductive.

    AF (4a3fa6)

  19. Yet who has caused Rall to have these beliefs about soldiers? People like you, AF.

    Hey, makes about as much sense as this comment.

    Patterico (2a65a5)

  20. Jim Webb vs. Lindsay Graham
    Rall mocks the soldiers, Webb listens to them.

    Support the Troops.
    “The White House has refused to give Congress documents about the death of former NFL player Pat Tillman, with White House counsel Fred F. Fielding saying that certain papers relating to discussion of the friendly-fire shooting “implicate Executive Branch confidentiality interests.””
    Support Pat Tilman

    AF (4a3fa6)

  21. AF…you completely avoided the point….you keep focusing on WHERE terrorists come from….the focus should be on what they BELIEVE….there are MUSLIM TERRORISTS from AMERICA….yet no poll would ever say that we believe we should be fighting in AMERICA, would it???

    Your logic stinks….

    reff (f3109d)

  22. AF – People who follow events in Iraq closely and don’t buy the media spin understand that the foreign fighters are not primarily Syrian and Iranian.

    How do you explain the 51% of the country, primarily democrats, that still thinks that George Bush had some sort of role in 9/11. Where did they get that idea?
