Franken not liberal enough for Tom Hayden

The very fact that Tom Hayden has a political career is an embarassement to this nation, but I digress. The kind, Eurotrashy folks over at The Huffington Post have given him a soapbox, and he uses it to offer us "Al Franken, liberal hawk?"
Is anyone else disappointed with Al Franken's daily defense of the continued war in Iraq? [What does he think this is, a Brentwood cocktail party? -- BA] Not Bush's version of the war, because that would undermine Air America's laudable purpose of rallying an anti-Bush audience. But, well, Kerry's version of the war, one that can be better managed and won, somehow with better body armor and fewer torture cells...

...Meanwhile, the majority of Iraqis, the people these humanitarian hawks seek to save, want the US to set a timetable for withdrawal...

Our government is the chief provocateur of the insurgency... Our government is ignoring Iraqi opinion...

Why can't Air America "liberals" support the Iraqi peace movement?
UPDATE: I'm a bit surprised Huff is letting some of the comments through:
Wow! As a leader of the "New Left" anti-war miscreants, one of those most culpable and never held accountable for the deaths of well over 3M people in SE Asia (Cambodia, Vietnam, South China Sea) after the American withdrawal in 1975 has the audacity to proffer a judgement. What stones!

Why is an otherwise worthwhile site giving this amnesic idealist a platform?

And how many times can Tom Hayden be on the wrong side of history?

Let's all clasp hands and join Tom in a chorus of... "Come on people now... Everybody get together... come and love one another right now!" Sing loudly everyone, lest you hear the screams of those cut down when we decide to retreat.

Tom pushed for "peace" at all costs in the '60s and '70s. The only problem is that this "peace" resulted in millions of innocents being slaughtered.

Have the killing fields of Cambodia really receded from everyone's memory? What's Tom's response to that atrocity? Did Pol Pot just need a big hug from Tom? Maybe a flower in his hair?

Her's the deal, Tom. Franken and other Democrats don't share your passion for American defeat. Unlike you, they don't get off on it.
