Who is Mike Gravel? Don't ask

Good grief. The American political landscape has just gotten more anti-American.

I am shocked by the naivety with which Americans, supposedly educated people, are willing to entrust the destiny of the nation to three idiots: a post-menopausal power-hungry enraged woman, a "former" Muslim mulatto without any credentials, and a confounded old man with lots of anger issues. It looks like there will be a lot of surprises in the near future - and I mean bad ones. To make my point, now there's another American embarassment that is emerging in the race. A fourth presidential candidate is in the picture, aggressively distinguishing himself from his rivals as the candidate most eager to negotiate with terrorists, Mike Gravel.

Now before you get excited about having an alternative to the three vulgar goofballs I mentioned above, Mike Gravel is no better. He's out to injure the United States. Why? He's pro-Hamas. Via FrontPage:

A Massachusetts native who served in the Alaska House of Representatives from 1963-66 and in the U.S. Senate from 1969-81, Mike Gravel began his run for the White House as a Democrat but failed to gain any traction as such, thus he crossed over to the Libertarian line. Gravel’s previous claim to fame came in 1971 when he read, into the Senate record, some 4,100 pages of the “Pentagon Papers,” which Daniel Ellsberg initially had leaked to The New York Times in a move that unquestionably violated the Espionage Act’s explicit prohibition against the release of “any document … relating to the national defense which … could be used to the injury of the United States or to the advantage of any foreign nation.”

Today Gravel is again prepared to injure the United States, this time by working to prevent America’s strongest Middle Eastern ally, Israel, from being able to defend itself against the onslaught of its jihadist, genocidal neighbors. Specifically, Gravel has denounced what he terms “the Washington establishment” for having “condemned and criticized Jimmy Carter for his latest attempt to make the world a safer place” by “meeting with Khaled Meshal, the leader of Hamas.” In Gravel’s view, Carter “should be praised” for his “brave gambit” which aims to “jump-start the peace process.” “When will we Americans learn that the only way to achieve true security is through diplomacy and negotiation?” says Gravel. “... [T]he only way to break the cycle of violence is a negotiated settlement.”

“Carter’s critics,” Gravel adds, “don’t know much about Israel’s real security situation -- nor do they really care about it. All they want to do is please AIPAC [American Israel Public Affairs Committee] and hawkish members of the American Jewish community who don’t have to live under the daily threat of terrorism.”
