Hmmm... Statement, or talking points?

OK, it's been a week and a half. I got kinda busy, and caught a nasty cold. But, on to the fun stuff:

Checking my weekly e-mail from the Utah Democratic Party, I noticed two things. First was that someone has way too much time on their hands making cutesy graphics. I want the facts, sirs, not meaningless graphics.

Second, was that they allowed Chairman Holland and Rep Matheson to spew the same talking points. Here are their press releases on the death of the 2000th soldier in Iraq, witht he pertinant parts highlighted:

Wayne Holland:

"America owes an eternal debt to the men and women of our military forces and to the families of these fallen brave and patriotic warriors. The only way we can even attempt to honor their sacrifice is to insist on an honest assessment of what is and isn’t working in Iraq. We need to protect these men and women. We need a plan for success. Anything less is nothing short of contemptible disrespect."

Jim Matheson:

"We all mourn the loss of every soldier and our hearts go out to the loved ones they leave behind. In honor of their memory it is incumbent upon Congress to get an honest assessment of what is working and not working in Iraq, and develop a plan for success."

If you are going to spout talking points, paraphrase, don't plagerize.
