Colin Powell smites moonbat

In Congressional testimony yesterday from Secretary of State Colin L. Powell, " a retired four-star general known for his even temperament":

Powell, however, became testy when [Rep. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio), a 12-year veteran of the House] said, in a reference to questions about whether Bush completed his National Guard service: "You are one of the very few people in this administration that understands war. We have a president who may have been AWOL" from duty.

"First of all, Mr. Brown, I won't dignify your comments about the president because you don't know what you are talking about," Powell snapped.

"I'm sorry, I don't know what you mean, Mr. Secretary," Brown replied.

"You made reference to the president," Powell said.

"I say he may have been AWOL," Brown repeated.

"Mr. Brown, let's not go there," Powell retorted. "Let's not go there in this hearing. If you want to have a political fight on this matter, that is very controversial, and I think is being dealt with by the White House, fine. But let's not go there."

Bully for General Powell! Bully, I say! And hie thee back to Atrios where ye belong, Congressman!
