Awww, it seems that some are crying for the 9/11 widows who chose to go public with their opposition to Bush administration policies.
Were they known as authorities on public policy issues before 9/11? If not, why do they suppose that the media has suddenly found their opinions to be worthy of publication?
It's not as if their opinions differ from those of any of thousands of other moonbats. They *do* differ from most of the rest of the 9/11 widows, however, in a way that the media approve, ie, they oppose the current administration.
So they owe their status to their losses. If they enjoy their status, they're enjoying their losses.
No, they can't trade back.
But they can't have it both ways either: once they start running their yaps in public, they lose their halos.
