I am absolutely appalled — yet not too surprised — at the unmitigated audacity of the anti-war protesters. They staged a protest at the Republican Convention in St. Paul, yet they were nowhere to be seen at the Democratic Convention in Denver. If I recall correctly, the Democrats predominated two years ago in the midyear election on a platform plank that the war was wrong and they would bring the troops home, now!

And that is only one of the promises the Democrats' elected politicians have failed to fulfill.
