pay attention to history, george.

from the republican party:

President Bush is committed to keeping the nation strong and secure through strengthening our military, deploying a missile defense system, strengthening the NATO alliance and supporting military families andveterans.

has this guy got an unusually small pecker or something? was he the kid looking out the window with his brain shut off during world history lessons, or was he too busy practicising isolating himself from reality at an early age?

you can tell a great deal about a person by the company they keep. judging by the ‘dream team’ of karl rove, dick cheney, donald rumsfeld, and condoleeza rice, together, they make an analyst’s field day.

any idiot can drive fast in a straight line, but it’s how they handle the bends that separates drivers. bush’s complete incapability in dealing with hurricane katrina will never be forgotten, nor should it be forgiven. for the country’s leader to walk into that hangar, and say to that other idiot, michael brown, that he’d done a ‘heck of a job’ showed bush to be a president so callously isolated from his public, that he wasn’t seeing what everyone else was. can you imagine winston churchill in the same circumstances….?

now hussein’s been hanged. i don’t think anyone’s going to cry too much over this tyrant’s death. his appalling human rights violations have been all too well documented. it’s a shame then, that the united states supported him when it suited their purposes.

how about that photo of rummy shaking hands with saddam the very same day that the united nations released a report that iraq had used mustard gas and tabun against iranian troops, and on march 29th, 1984, a report in the new york times stated that "American diplomats pronounce themselves satisfied with Iraq and the U.S., and suggest that normal diplomatic ties have been established in all but name."

…..Next week, Americans will gather to celebrate Christmas and Hanukkah. Many families will be praying for loved ones spending this season far from home – in Iraq, Afghanistan, or other dangerous places. Our Nation joins in those prayers. We pray for the safety and strength of our troops. We trust, with them, in a love that conquers all fear, and a light that reaches the darkest corners of the Earth. And we remember the words of the Christmas carol, written during the Civil War: “God is not dead, nor [does] He sleep; the Wrong shall fail, the Right prevail, with peace on Earth, good-will to men.”

Thank you, and good night.

tell me, mr. president. is that last passage consistent with the image of rumsfeld shaking hands with hussein, and hussein being hanged by men wearing casual clothes wearing ski masks?

is that the culmination of the $350 billion of taxpayers money spent on an uninvited occupation, ~3,000 american servicemen deaths, and the estimated 650,000 iraqi deaths?

is this your brave, new iraqi democracy in the middle east?

if so, they dress an awful lot like the IRA from the 1970’s and 80’s…

Hi Nutty,
And so, Saddam was hanged today. But this feels like a dark thing just to say.

Here's hoping you had great holidays and once more, just once more, let me wish you a happy new year. Look forward to reading you in 2007.
