Dick the Slimy, having said the resistance in Iraq is in "its last throes," now has attempted to clarify his remark by quibbling over the definition of "throes." In the context of his remark, however, it doesn't really matter what the definition of throes is. When he said the resistance was in its last throes that cannot be construed to mean anything other than the resistance is about to come to an end - its LAST throes. Cheney has also said that Iraq is going to be a resounding success. This might have had some slight credibility if he hadn't added, "just like Afghanistan." Afghanistan is a success? He truly does inhabit a different planet from the rest of humanity. I am beginning to believe he may simply be mentally ill. But he still runs things and Bolton may still get another vote (can you believe it?).
It should also thrill all Americans to learn that after four and a half years of the Bush/Cheney administration the United States is now regarded less favorably than China. China is a communist country. So now, after all these years of communist bashing, it turns out that the vast majority of the world thinks China is a better country than the U.S. I tell you, these Republicans are something. Something else I guess. The way things are going I suspect it won't be much longer before the U.S. will be perceived as worse than the Sudan. But it's all because you got to fight terrists everywhere (except for those who make up the House and the Senate).
Speaking of the House, I guess you are aware that for the umpteenths time they have taken the time to pass a constitutional amendment recommendation against flag burning. This is apparently a truly important issue for the House as they have spent a great deal of time over it in recent years. Never mind health care, Social Security, unemployment, the obscene national debt, the energy problem, the degraded environment, etc., what is important to the House of Representatives is that someone, somewhere, somehow, someway, might actually try to burn the American flag (which, by the way, is the proper way to dispose of a no longer useful flag). I confess to feeling much safer already. Of course the Senate will have to waste some time getting rid of this utterly ridiculous attempt, and even if they didn't it would have to be passed by two thirds of the states which would, conservatively estimated, waste time forever and almost surely never happen. But what else should the House be doing? Surely not taking care of important business. Well, they might start by impeaching Bush/Cheney. Naw, that would be too obvious. We are currently living in a country that to put it politely has gone absolutely "bonkers."
Gannon/Guckert - Gannon/Guckert - Gannon/Guckert - Gannon/Guckert - Gannon/Guckert What was he doing in the White House and who was he doing it with? This scandal simply cannot be left to disappear. A known male prostitute fake reporter given passes to the White House even when there were no Press Conferences scheduled? Come on! To me this story whispers persistently, Karl Rove, Karl Rove, Karl Rove...
