“There’s an old saying in Tennessee — I know it’s in Texas, probably in Tennessee — that says:  Fool me once, shame on… … shame on you.  Yi-fool me you can’t git fooled again.”
George W. Bush, Sept. 17, 2002

Prove you're human: leave a comment.

  1. And, of course, little discussed but widely known among the cognizanti, we installed Sadaam in 1982(?) – don’t forget to run the pics of Rummy talking with and shaking hands with him during our “Tilt toward Iraq” phase in the mideast conflict, and our sale of the spray-on poison that he needed to get rid of his enemies.


  2. Desmond Tutu has just come out and said that The War Criminal should be dragged before the Hague:

    On what grounds do we decide that Robert Mugabe should go the International Criminal Court, Tony Blair should join the international speakers’ circuit, bin Laden should be assassinated, but Iraq should be invaded, not because it possesses weapons of mass destruction, as Mr Bush’s chief supporter, Mr Blair, confessed last week, but in order to get rid of Saddam Hussein?

    The cost of the decision to rid Iraq of its by-all-accounts despotic and murderous leader has been staggering, beginning in Iraq itself. Last year, an average of 6.5 people died there each day in suicide attacks and vehicle bombs, according to the Iraqi Body Count project. More than 110,000 Iraqis have died in the conflict since 2003 and millions have been displaced. By the end of last year, nearly 4,500 American soldiers had been killed and more than 32,000 wounded.

    On these grounds alone, in a consistent world, those responsible for this suffering and loss of life should be treading the same path as some of their African and Asian peers who have been made to answer for their actions in the Hague.

  3. Miss him?

    Hell, if he’d run again (impossible, but hey, it’s the party of “Voter ID needed due to rampant voter fraud” so anything can happen) he’d get more votes than R/R.

    Not that the Diebold voting machines care whose name is before the (R).

    Love ya,
