A Leftist Actually Believes Treason Is Possible.


Or course the left believes it treasonous to advance America. Here is the quote from Al Franken

"And so basically, what it looks like is going to happen is that Libby and Karl Rove are going to be executed" because "outing a CIA agent is treason," left-wing author and radio talk show host Al Franken asserted Friday night, to audience laughter, on CBS's Late Show with David Letterman. Franken qualified his hard-edged satire: "Yeah. And I don't know how I feel about it because I'm basically against the death penalty, but they are going to be executed it looks like." Franken later suggested that President Bush is at risk of receiving the same punishment, since Karl Rove likely told him what he did, but he added a caveat: "I think, by the way, that we should never ever, ever, ever execute a sitting President."

This man is considering a run for the job that Mark Dayton is quitting (Minnesota's other senator), this is probably going to doom him.

I guess I should not be flabbergasted a leftist actually believes in treason. Of course providing aid and comfort to the Islamist terrorists in Iraq is not treason it is patriotism, and trying to defeat Islamist terrorists and establish a beachhead of liberal governance in the Middle East is treason.
