It seems I am not the only one getting sick of the several "9/11 wives" who have in effect become liberal pundits. Kristen Breitweiser and Patty Casazza, two of the most transparent partisan hacks of this leftists clan, are the worst offenders. Aided by a media more than willing to give a voice to victims of 9/11 so long as they are rabid anti-Bush partisans, these two have been making rounds for their Democratic handlers to damn those members of Congress who have asked for more debate on the intelligence bill. The Media Research Center has this great wrap-up of their appearance on Good Morning America:

With "OUTRAGED 9/11 WIVES" as the on-screen heading, Monday's Good Morning America featured Kristen Breitweiser and Patty Casazza, to denounce those opposed to the intelligence reform bill, without bothering to mention how both endorsed John Kerry. (In a Kerry ad, Breitweiser declared that since "I want to look in my daughter's eyes and know that she is safe...I am voting for John Kerry." Casazza had pined that "on 9/11, my life was in a long, dark tunnel. Now I can see some light. John Kerry has the answers" and after Bush won she worried the public was in more danger.) On GMA, Breitweiser launched into left-wing paranoia about how "Defense contractors need to recognize the fact that with $40 billion of a budget being spent on things that are not making us safer, we need a director of national intelligence to reallocate those funds to human intelligence on the ground." Casazza demanded: "What do we say to our children at this point in time? My son is 14. In three years he could be drafted to go to the war if that is brought back -- you can go to war, but we will not protect you here at home. That's unconscionable."

If you ever catch any of these women on TV, listen to what they say carefully. Its obvious to even the most a-political viewer that these women have been given talking points. They all say the same stuff - verbatum at times. Its no surprise a similar political action group hasnt been put together by 9/11 widows who support Bush (yes, they exist and they are numerous). Only Democrats are shameless enough to take advantage of this national tragedy and its destraught widows to meet their political ends.
