Another great talking point concerning bush's war of choice in Iraq is that anyone who is against the "surge" and/or the war in general is from the "fringe Left". Senator John Warner, Senator Chuck Hagel, and the all but about 20 of their republican colleagues who are against the surge, are not on the "fringe Left". Representative John Murtha is not from the "fringe Left". Generals Abizaid and Casey are not on the "fringe Left". I wish that the almost 62% of the US citizens, who polled against the "surge", were on the "fringe Left". They are not, yet. When the Senate votes on the, albeit non-binding, resolution against bush's "surge", maybe all this broad brushed crazy peacenik left talk will stop, and once again we will be able to take our rightful place on the "we were right about bush's war in Iraq from the start" mantle all by our "fringe Left"-selves.
Speaking of pinko, hippy, commies, the March on Washington that took place last Saturday seems to have been made up of more than just the normal "protest for the love of protest", dread locked, unfocused, Mumia liberating, anarchists that the mainstream media, as well as blogland, informed Us made up the millions that protested this war in Iraq before it started. Young urban professionals (who really aren't the easiest to motivate), soldiers and their families, and union workers showed up to protest the war in greater numbers than has been reported before. Some even carried and waved the American flag. Damn flag burnin' Liberals!

Just something to think about while you're listening to "sanctity of life"/war monger-in-chief talk about tax breaks to help citizens afford health care, even though most of the people who can't afford it don't make enough money to pay taxes. The blinding irony of scarlet macaws (red parrots), like faux news anchor brit hume, talking about how prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald over stepped his bounds in investigating the administration's disclosure of Classified information concerning our National Security. I wonder what the "do as we say now and not what we did then" crowd thought of investigator starr, who was sent to investigate a real estate case the Clintons were involved in BEFORE HE WAS PRESIDENT only to start asking the questions of the President's marital fidelity (obviously essential to our National Security). In case you forgot, here's what republicans used to think about the rule of law.
Next week Iran and what we've done to the region of South West Asia that we call the Middle East, as well as "global climate change", and maybe even an update on the scooter libby trial. So far ex-bush mouthpiece, ari fleischer, testified that scooter lied, libby has testified that vice president dick told him to do it, and rove and bartlett (counselor to the president) have been subpoenaed.
