Ugly on the inside and the outside
The other day I posted about Charles Johnson of LGF who is the Head Jerkoff of the Little Green Floggers. It seems that Chuck, who has the delicate sensibilities of a thirteen year-old girl (and I do apologize to all thirteen year-old girls), was headed for a lie-down and a dose of laudanum after being offended by "...a revealing demonstration of the mean-spirited, foul-mouthed, debased state of the modern left."
Siento para usted a pequeña muchacha...
So I was surprised to find that he must not read his own blog (and can you really blame him? I mean, really?).
Here's the story:
An American founder of a humanitarian group for Iraqi civilian war casualties has been killed in a car bomb blast, a Western official said.
Marla Ruzicka, founder of Campaign for Innocent Victims in Conflict, was traveling Saturday near Baghdad International Airport when a car bomb exploded, killing her and her driver, the official said Sunday.
Ruzicka, 28, founded Campaign for Innocent Victims in Conflict in 2003, according to the group's Web site. Its mission is to "mitigate the impact of the conflict and its aftermath on the people of Iraq by ensuring that timely and effective life-saving assistance is provided to those in need."
She began a door-to-door survey of civilian casualties the day after a statue of Saddam Hussein was toppled in Baghdad in April 2003, the Web site said.
"Marla took her first report to U.S. Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vermont, who sponsored legislation to provide U.S. aid to innocent Iraqis who were harmed in the military operations," the site said.
Nancy Ruzicka said her daughter began working with the human rights organization Global Exchange in high school, taking on assignments in Zimbabwe, the Middle East and Nicaragua.
Global Exchange leaders and former colleagues Kevin Danaher and Medea Benjamin said Ruzicka "loved big challenges, and she took them on with a radiant smile that could melt the coldest heart."
"We are somewhat consoled by the fact that Marla died doing what she really wanted to do: help people less fortunate than herself," Danaher and Benjamin said in a written statement. "Many of us believe that character trait to be the most beautiful quality a human being can possess. And Marla had an abundance of it."
Now, for those not clear on the concept: Marla Ruzicka was attempting to help innocent victims of the war that we started supposedly in order to bring the Iraqi people democracy and freedom (which is the current neocon story and they're sticking to it by golly).
So what do the Leather Dykes of LGF think about her? Probably nothing "mean-spirited" or "debased". Then again:

Yahoo story says she first went to Iraq as part of 'Code Pink'.

I don't give a rats behind about this loser. Can this be the SNDT by any chance? I'm making dinner (ravioli, homemade ofcourse with a little help from mother-in-law..bless her soul) and I'm having a Poor Man's Bloody Mary (two domestic Beers with Clamato, lime, Tobasco, little salt and little pepper) let's hear it Lizardoids!

People like her believe that if we just love everyone they just have to love us back.
She is a dead Moonbat okay...'nuff said.

I can guess what color her eyes were!
1 blew this way & the other blew that way
You get the idea. But somewhere along the line Chuck realized that he needed a veneer of civility (it was a one time thing...it'll pass) so he turned to seventh-tier "media analyst" and war-loving troll, Cori Dauber (that would be Dauber on the left):
Let Us Not Speak Ill of the Dead
But let us speak accurately.
Both NBC and CNN produce hagiographic pieces about a young "humanitarian," or young "aid worker" killed today in a suicide bombing. What, precisely, she did of a practical nature in either Afghanistan or Iraq is left somewhat vague, besides caring an enormous amount, and organizing. Were food, or medical supplies, or school supplies, ever actually found, dispursed, distributed? If so, it isn't mentioned. But, boy, did she care, with tireless energy, and she made sure the civilian victims of war knew she was there caring -- and that "we" were sorry.
Well, more power to her, I suppose, and rest in peace. But I think it would have been a better and more complete story if either of these networks had reported more fully on just who this young woman was -- and why it was that both of them knew of this young woman, and themselves cared about her so much.
...and then Dauber (now that she was done sneering and supplying quotes around humanitarian and aide worker) provides links that would seem to show that Marla Ruzicka was quite an effective advocate for victims of war and would seem to qualify as a humanitarian. but then history has shown that Dauber never has been what one might call, bright.
One can only imagine what they would grunt if only they were "mean-spirited"....
