    yeah, like us Americans. We clearly know when to give up and start licking our corporate masters’ boots.

    @Radfish: Because we’re just the unwashed, uneducated (oh, and racist, of course) masses who can’t possibly know what’s good for us.

    JRC123: The problem with using irony is that others can choose to ignore it and take you at your word. You, umm, were being ironic, right?

    You know what’s ironic? People who don’t understand irony trying to use irony.

    I love the smell of liberal outrage in the morning.

    I think the Russians said the exact same thing about Afghanistan. In that part of the world, you need to conquer the rocks before you can conquer the people. The difficulty is sorting them out from each other.

    On a related note, it seems that the Obama administration is negotiating with the Russians to get them to return to Afghanistan alongside NATO forces. Supposedly, the Russian helicopters are better suited to the harsh landscape. I wonder what Rambo would think of that?

    Too bad Cheney had to give Mushie of Pakiland billions of dollars for military “aid” to arm themselves against india instead of stationing troops to stop the taliban retreating. And shame on President Obama for continuing that aid.

    WMDs in Iraq.

    Enough said.

    The re-election of Harry Reid just proved the point.

    Incidentally, I don’t understand the symbol for, er, the shrub. Seems like he has some bent french fries on top?

    Bush-Dick never learned the lessons of Vietnam, because he spent that time supporting the war and making sure that he did not have to go.

    I agree, Rina, that the symbol is not working too well. It was, originally, around 2003, a Roman centurion’s helmet, but as Bush-Dick two invasions got worse & worse, the helmet lost more & more of its plumage.

    @Ira Nayman: Well, I thought I was being ironic, but then a paused briefly on MSNBC this morning and I’m no longer sure!

    Rina - the Bush icon is that brush-like appendage to a Roman centurion’s helmut. It’s the same icon GT used during W’s presidency, but it’s showing a bit more wear now.

    Give MSNBC a little slack - a few of them are still in shock after telling their viewers all weekend that the R’s had no chance of taking the House.

    @ Brian, I thought the drooping plumage was more an indicator of Bush’s losing energy and support than of the situation getting worse and worse. Either way, in retirement, I don’t think it is an appropriate symbol any more. He’s not wearing any hats at all these days.

    the helmet is too destroyed now even to be an “empty hat” - an asterisk with a microphone, and when you heed the “*” in case there is a footnote to the banality of his evil, there’s nothing….nothing except the book moolah and the speaking engagements moolah, and perhaps someone other than Trudeau will have the courage to throw another shoe at that misbegotten gladiator, that legend in his own dry drunk mind.

    and so true, Ouirsophuct. tell it!

    so wish I could smile rather than feel such sorrow - off a duck’s back it.
