Un. Be. Fucking. Lievable.

Via Eschaton, freed hostage Jill Carroll is the Right Wingnuts latest target. An excerpt from the Don Imus show:
MCGUIRK: She strikes me as the kind of woman who would wear one of those suicide vests. You know, walk into the — try and sneak into the Green Zone.

IMUS: Oh, no. No, no, no, no.

MCCORD: Just because she always appears in traditional Arab garb and wearing a burka.

MCGUIRK: Yeah, what’s with the head gear? Take it off. Let’s see.

MCCORD: Exactly. She cooked with them, lived with them.

IMUS: This is not helping.

MCGUIRK: She may be carrying Habib’s baby at this point.

IMUS: She could. It’s not like she was representing the insurgents or the terrorists or those people.

MCCORD: Well, there’s no evidence directly of that –

IMUS: Oh, gosh, you better shut up!

MCGUIRK: She’s like the Taliban Johnny or something.
*Sigh* I shouldn't be surprised by this, considering the Far Right's history of slinging the word traitor at decorated veterans. How ironic that the "compassionate conservatives" are labeling Carroll as a traitor for actively showing the compassion to which they pay mere lip-service.
