Islamo-Foosball Awareness Week

Islamo-Foosball Awareness Week

Although I admit to having given my vote last fall to Rick Santorum in his unsuccessful campaign to hold on to his U.S. Senate seat, I have been appalled by his recent harping on the menace of "Islamofascism." Santorum has lent himself to a largely neoconservative-funded campaign, headed by journalist David Horowitz and Washington lobbyist Frank Gaffney, to make us aware, in Horowitz's words, that "Islamofascism is the greatest danger America has ever faced."

What Happened to the War on Terror?

What Happened to the War on Terror?

From the invasion of Iraq in 2003 until the economy took a turn for the worse during the election, the “War on Terror” was the defining issue of the Republican Party. Standard conservative priorities like smaller government and fiscal responsibility and even social issues like abortion, gay marriage and gun rights, all took a backseat to support for the war in Iraq. So what happened? Listen to virtually any Republican politician or conservative talk show today and you won’t hear much about Al-Quada, terrorism or 9/11. You will hear one thing and thing only – how Obama’s massive spending must be stopped. It’s as if the War on Terror never even existed.
