Really pissed off conservatives:
In the wake of Frist's remarks about making a deal to get the Taliban as part of the Afghan government (later retracted/corrected somewhat) some conservative bloggers have gone ballistic. Here is a sampling:Ace of Spades HQ
Frist: Give the Taliban Part of the Afghan Government; The War Is UnwinnableDaily Pundit
That's it for me.
Perhaps we should make peace with Zawahiri as well? Let's negotiate, and see what terms we can get as good dhimmis.
The hell with the lot of them.
I don't need the goddamned Republican Party in power to sign "peace" deals with terrorists. I can get that easily enough from the Democratic Party. I've supported these vacuous, cowardly, inept, corrupt idiots for one reason-- to fight terrorists.

Cut 'n' run is in full swing. It's all the rage. Here's Dr. Frist [spit] advocating surrender to the Taliban:Hot Air
U.S. Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist said Monday that the Afghan guerrilla war can never be won militarily and called for efforts to bring the Taliban and their supporters into the Afghan government.Really. I've had it with the Republicans. I just don't see the difference anymore twixt the two parties. Assephants, the lot of them.
The Tennessee Republican said he had learned from briefings that Taliban fighters were too numerous and had too much popular support to be defeated by military means.
"You need to bring them into a more transparent type of government," Frist said during a brief visit to a U.S. and Romanian military base in the southern Taliban stronghold of Qalat. "And if that's accomplished we'll be successful."
If this is the way our "leaders" feel, then let's just bring the military home. No sense insulting their service, dedication and sacrifice going after what everyone in Washington has decided is a lost and unwinniable war.
The Commissar has decided to vote Democratic this fall.
Why not? What’s the difference?
Update: Ace says he’s done with the GOP. So am I. That’s it.
