    And we're going to turn the keys over to the Iraqis in a few months? Not good.
    Norman Chad, syndicated columnist: “Sports radio, reflecting our sinking culture, spends entire days advising managers and coaches, berating managers and coaches, firing managers and coaches and searching the countryside for better middle relievers. If they just redirected their energy toward, say, crosswalk-signal maintenance, America would be 2 percent more livable.”

    Sort of creepy to see casualty statistics kept like they were monthly rainfall amounts.

      How disgusting.

      As KinginKC said, we cant get out of there fast enough.
      “I’ve always stated, ‘I’m a Missouri Tiger,’” Anderson said March 13 after Arkansas fired John Pelphrey, adding, “I’m excited about what’s taking place here.”

      Asked then if he would talk to his players about the situation, he said, “They know me, and that’s where the trust comes in.

        We can always hope for more deaths, so the Democrats can win.
        And, frankly, it has never occured to me that "winning" a debate is important, or that I should be hurt when someone like Airshark or kah, among others (for whom winning a pseudo debate or declaring intellectual superiority over invisible others is obviously very important) ridicule me.

            Like it or not, this is definitely an impression given by some on the antiwar side.

              I have no doubt some people want to see these headlines, until November.
              Asked what he would do differently in Iraq, Kerry said, "Right now, what I would do differently is, I mean, look, I'm not the president, and I didn't create this mess so I don't want to acknowledge a mistake that I haven't made."

                  DICK Cheney: "My belief is we will, in fact, be greeted as liberators."

                  I wonder what that effing douchebag was thinking when he saw the charred remains of apparently American bodies being dragged through the streets today?

                  Seriously, damtoft, reggie, burn, whether you agree with the war in principle, how many times must Cheney be wrong and/or misrepresent the facts on EVERYTHING before you have had enough from this prick?

                  Seriously, I'd like to hear your thoughts on this guy.

                    If so, God, that's sick. My concern is that Ahmed Chalabi and friends won't be able to make the violence directed at Americans go away! Chalabi will always be viewed as a puppet of America. I seriously fear that a civil war is inevitable.

                    What a mess!

                      I'm not a Cheney fan, but I'd be willing to bet a lot of Iraqi people are glad we are there. I'm not saying it's worth the price we've paid, but there are a lot of people seeing freedom that they hadn't seen before we showed up.

                        I disagree with razzy in that I think we need to stay the course and deal with the hand we've been dealt. A civil war is not in our best interests. But days like today make it tough.

                        And yes, Chalabi - can we divorce ourselves from this douche already? It's incredible. It's one thing to be duped into war by the guy, but to reward him afterward?

                          Care to show us a few examples of this fictitious claim?
