Affleck in Tirade Over Cowardly Democrats

Washed-up actor and political moron Ben Affleck unleashed an angry diatribe about the weak-kneed Democrats while appearing on Bill Maher's show Friday. Via NewsBusters and Ms. Underestimated.
AFFLECK: I’m going to do it right now, because, you know what’s funny that you’re not going to give away? The Democrats live in fear of basically, you know, being called cowards. Of looking soft on military. Of looking like pussies, basically. We’re afraid that somebody’s going to call us a pussy. That somebody’s going to criticize us. And these people got elected basically on opposing the war. They got sent to Washington to oppose the war. They went there to make a vote on opposing the war. And then, when they got sent back the bill to, you know, and they were told, “Look, you know, the president’s not going to, you know, you have to put these, uh, you know, timelines in there, you know, you’re either going to vote for or against this measure that says, you have to, if you want this money, you have to give us timelines to get out of Iraq. Are you going to be for this or against it?”

They were afraid that if they basically sent it back to the President and said, “No, we need the timelines.” And they left, for Memorial Day vacation. And when they left, the President would criticize them when they went on vacation for not supporting the troops. In other words…while they were on vacation, they were afraid of being criticized. So rather, out of a fear of being criticized, they sacrificed their core political beliefs. And they wonder why people call them fucking weak.
He's right, you know, they are weak.
