MTCW Idiot of the Week

It is Monday and that means it is once again time for the My Two Cents Worth’s Idiot of the Week.

This week we return to the halls of the U.S. Congress to find our idiot. It seems there are a lot of idiots there.

This week’s winner goes to yet another freshmen Democrat, Rep. Nancy Boyda (D-Kan.)

Boyda and several of her democrat colleagues have seemed to secretly invest in defeat in Iraq for sure political reasons. Any good news from Iraq is bad news for the Democrat Party.

Well, it seems with Gen. David Petraeus now in charge things have taken a swift change for the better in Iraq. A flow of good news is now coming from Iraq. It is hard to find in the media, but it is there.

News like this seems to be more than Boyda can stand as she illustrated her true feelings during a briefing from (Ret.) Gen. Keane. The news from Iraq was so good she just couldn’t take it and literally walked of the House Armed Service Committee briefing.

Boyda later explained her tantrum by making this statement:

“And I just will make some statements more for the record based on what I heard from -- mainly from General Keane. As many of us -- there was only so much that you could take until we in fact had to leave the room for a while. So I think I am back and maybe can articulate some things -- after so much of the frustration of having to listen to what we listened to.”

“But let me first just say that the description of Iraq as in some way or another that it's a place that I might take the family for a vacation -- things are going so well -- those kinds of comments will in fact show up in the media and further divide this country instead of saying, here's the reality of the problem. And people, we have to come together and deal with the reality of this issue.”

Well Nancy, dealing with the so called reality of the issue would mean acknowledging the significant progress that is being made by American troops under the command of Gen. Petraeus in Iraq. A situation that she and her party have proven they are unwilling to deal with. In fact, after covering her eyes and ears and walking out of the room she will now try to pull the wool over everyone else’s eyes.

Congresswoman Nancy Boyda, you are the MTCW Idiot of the Week.
