Boy, Do They Get Their Panties In A Wad

The vote for censure in the Senate yesterday about an ad in a newspaper just shows what a bunch of cowards politicians are.

There are over 1 million Iraqis killed in this war of aggression and another 2 million displaced and all Congress can do is fan their faces and clutch their pearls over's full page ad in the New York Times?

I think the Republican Party should change their name to the Anti-Democrat Party. That is the only enemy they seem willing to fight because it is the only one they can win.

Faux Outrage

Just saw Nick (helmet-hair) Roberts from CNN report that President Bush was very upset about the infamous ad in the New York Times reguarding General Petraeus.

Well, Boo-Hoo!

WASHINGTON, Sep 12 (IPS) - In sharp contrast to the lionisation of Gen. David Petraeus by members of the U.S. Congress during his testimony this week, Petraeus's superior, Admiral William Fallon, chief of the Central Command (CENTCOM), derided Petraeus as a sycophant during their first meeting in Baghdad last March, according to Pentagon sources familiar with reports of the meeting.Fallon told Petraeus that he considered him to be "an ass-kissing little chickenshit" and added, "I hate people like that", the sources say. That remark reportedly came after Petraeus began the meeting by making remarks that Fallon interpreted as trying to ingratiate himself with a superior.

Is the general anything other than a political tool?

From the UK Independent ...
The US commander in Iraq, General David Petraeus, expressed long-term interest in running for the US presidency when he was stationed in Baghdad, according to a senior Iraqi official who knew him at that time.

Some Breathing Room

The so-called "Surge" was to give breathing room for the Iraqi government to get their act together.

After General Petraeu's testimony yesterday, the surge has only given political breathing room to President Bush.

All the sacrifice that our military has given since this operation was started was only to cover his ass.

God, I'm depressed.

I Could Not Have Said It Any Better Myself

I love this line from Joe Galloway at McClatchy Newspapers:

"the current struggle for the presidential nominations of the two major parties is going to produce only the two tallest midgets."
