Journalists Home, Clinton Triumphant, and....what?? Pissed-Off GOPers?

President Bill Clinton has successfully negotiated the release of journalists Laura Ling and Euna Lee, saving them from a twelve-year sentence at hard labor in a North Korean prison. You'd think that his success would be cause for nationwide praise, wouldn't you? No, not if you've been following the Party of No for the last six months like BarbinMD at Daily Kos has been:
  • "It comes perilously close to negotiating with terrorists," [John] Bolton said.
  • Fox News’ Dick Morris called Clinton’s trip "awful" and "ridiculous" and suggested that Ling and Lee should "live with the consequences of their decision to go" to North Korea.
  • Charles Krauthammer complained that North Korea "got a lot" out of the deal and that "it does help the North Koreans in their legitimacy."

You get the idea.

Bunch of jealous bastards, all of 'em.

I guess Dick Morris and Bill Clinton aren't BFFs any more.
