Sen: Brown (D) Quoted in Good 9/11 Piece by Sirota

There's an excellent piece on the 9/11 anniversary on DailyKos today by David Sirota, which quotes from Saturday's radio address by Senate candidate Rep. Sherrod Brown (D-Avon) to "put this all in perspective."

Go read the whole thing, but here's a snippet:
[T]he White House's Iraq obsession was responsible for allowing Osama bin Laden to escape, the Iraq War has turned into a giant recruiting advertisement for radical Islamic jihadists, the GOP has refused to implement the 9/11 Commission recommendations, Congress has prioritized tax cuts over homeland security priorities - and country club conservative pundits, most of them chickenhawks who refused to serve when they had their chance, cheer it all on, as President Bush behaves like a WWF wrestler, screaming "bring it on" to terrorists from the safe confines of a secret service-guaded podium that sits thousands of miles away from the frontlines. Meanwhile, as if mimmicking a real-life version of Clockwork Orange, we're all supposed to sit in a trance and watch ABC's 9/11 fantasy-fiction-as-documentary production, and forget that the Bush White House was aggressively trying to slash counter-terrorism funding before 9/11, even as it was receiving red-alert warnings of an imminent Al Qaeda attack.

that's the most damning and cogent political speech I've read on 9/11 and the Bush failures.

Or it could be another plagerized attempt by brownie to hide the dems own failures
