Clooney smacks down the Democrats

Apparently, if the Democratic leadership isn’t going to speak out against the Bush administration, then George Clooney is going to speak out against the Democratic leadership:

“The fear of (being) criticized can be paralyzing. Just look at the way so many Democrats caved in the run up to the war,” Clooney said Monday in a profanity-laced posting on The Huffington Post blog site.

“In 2003, a lot of us were saying, `Where is the link between Saddam and bin Laden? What does Iraq have to do with 9/11?”‘ Clooney wrote. “We have to agree that it’s not unpatriotic to hold our leaders accountable and to speak out.”

This is so very true. But I can’t just feel sorry for the Democrats. It is up to them to make a stand against the administration. The mood of the country has changed, the Democrats need to grow a spine and lead.
