I loved Nancy Pelosi's statement:
"If Mr. Rumsfeld is so concerned with comparisons to World War II, he should explain why our troops have now been fighting in Iraq longer than it took our forces to defeat the Nazis in Europe."This is the sign of a desperate man fronting a desperate administration. They are trying to change the subject from Katrina where they abonded thousands of Americans to Iraq where they have abandoned hundreds of thousands in Iraq while trying to force feed the region democracy. It hasn't worked yet so why do they expect it to work now? Last call at the bar and they are going home alone desperate.
In other news, the idiot in chief is roaming the country raising money for Republicans all on taxpayers dimes. This is a man of privilege, used to someone picking up the tab, letting him run around the country doing photo ops for the rich and richer. Iraq is burning and he is rasing money to make sure no one in Congress can ask him questions. Kind of like the teenager who gets busted but is trying to hide the bad news from the folks. And then steals money from their wallets on top of it.
As Kathy at Birmingham Blues says, I want my money back. With interest.
Today I was listening to Ed Schultz on Air America. He took a call from a neighbor of the Prophet of Polygamy in Sandy, Utah. Boy did she have some stories to tell! Did you know that the Prophet marries the first wife. Then all the rest of the wives are not recognized by the state so they all go on welfare? There is so much inbreeding amongst these people that there are always massive amounts of disabled children that, again, are being paid for by the state. So they have this compound in Utah where all the wives and hundreds of children live and it is supported by state services. Breathtaking! Check out the article in the WaPo.
