TB Friday Featuring The Surrender Monkey: John Edwards Destroys Watches

Happy Friday to all! It’s that time of the week again! Do you have an interesting post you want to share with everyone? The official Surrender Monkey of the Democratic Party says to do what the Lefties don’t, since they all have the same talking points: link it!

Surrender Monkey

I suppose it would be easiest to discuss the Defeatocrats latest vote in the House to run away! run away! from Operation Iraqi Freedom, but, no. Instead, we have Bumper Sticker boy joining us today, otherwise known as My Little Silk Pony

Chapel Hill — Authorities disarmed a suspicious package addressed to Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards on Thursday after the discovery of the package forced the evacuation of numerous businesses Thursday.

The incident marked the third time in recent months that authorities have responded to mail addressed to Edwards’ office.

A FedEx envelope from out of state arrived in the mail at about 10 a.m. Thursday, and intermittent beeping could be heard from inside, police said.

And, being that huge believer in the GWoT being nothing but a bumper sticker, the Edwards campaign obviously called the police.

The Durham County Sheriff’s Office bomb squad was called in to assist in the investigation. Bomb squad members determined the package didn’t pose a threat, but they used a high-powered water jet to disarm it.

"What they found were four watches that were beeping at about three-minute intervals," Interim Chapel Hill Police Chief Brian Curran said. "There was also some literature in there."

It was later determined that the package contained between two and four wristwatches and some literature, police said. The FBI planned to examine the literature as part of its investigation, authorities said.

Of course, the Edwards campaign will blame this on some sort of right winger group. But, sure looks like they had a bit of a hissy fit over the package, eh?

Postal employees in Chapel Hill intercepted another suspicious package in May after finding the letter contained a powdery substance. Edwards staffers also evacuated their office in Chapel Hill in March after an employee opened a package that contained a powdery substance and what Edwards later deemed "negative comments."

Both packages tested negative for anthrax, the powdery substance that accompanied letters in 2001 that killed five people and sickened 17 others. Those letters were also mailed to lawmakers on Capitol Hill and members of the news media just weeks after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

Yes, it does look like Edwards doesn’t think the GWoT is a bumper sticker when it is happening to him, eh? But, I am sure that Edwards will have a pithy bumper sticker slogan for what happened to him. Maybe "Two America’s: Those Who Get Attacked and Those That Don’t."

I don’t think that anyone would find much humour in these actions. I don’t think that either sending beeping watches or white powders through the mail wolud fall under “free speech” In fact they are probably criminal and I do not think that such things should be eithe r encouraged or “winked at”
