    I get the WMD reference, but what is with all of the ridicule of someone taking up the hobby of painting? Maybe he isn’t a good artist. So what? The subject is inane.

    At least shrub did it the other way around. There was a dumkopf schweinhundt back in the 20th century who was a failed artist who went on to become a spectacularly failed “leader”.

    Be better if they’d both stuck to painting.

    I think the shape of the canvas is supposed to resemble Picasso’s Guernica. GW Bush is oblivious to the destruction he created, that’s why it is blank.

    I’m disappointed in Deering stooping to personal invective. It is sophomoric at best and has no humor, just stupid.

    Along with other human rights organizations, The Documental Centre for Human Rights in Iraq has compiled documentation on over 600,000 civilian executions in Iraq. Human Rights Watch reports that in one operation alone, the Anfal, Saddam killed 100,000 Kurdish Iraqis. Another 500,000 are estimated to have died in Saddam’s needless war with Iran. Coldly taken as a daily average for the 24 years of Saddam’s reign, these numbers give us a horrifying picture of between 70 and 125 civilian deaths per day for every one of Saddam’s 8,000-odd days in power".

    Oh, I feel so much better about having spent trillions of money (on credit) and wasted so many lives on the BUsh/Cheney adventures… and once again, you love to quote wing-nut sources to justify the criminal or reprehensible behavior of your conservative nihilists. Quoting stats are fun, and so easy to twist to make them mean what you want. The Doc. Center for Human Rights in Iraq currently distributes no information to the U.S. public, is based somewhere in the Middle East and has a useless Web site. Saddam was a nasty person and killed a lot of people – and now we have trillions in debt, hundreds of thosands killed, Iraq a client state of Iran, and more crap to come.
    .
    Go ahead. Tell me again what a good thing it was to do that.

    Actually, regarding Hitler, I just read in Len Deighton’s (non-fiction) Blitzkrieg that tax records show that during Hitler’s artist period, “His income has been described as equivalent to a provincial lawyer.” So not rich, but not a starving artist, either.

    The other interesting tidbits include that Hitler was employed by the German Army (after WWI) “as a low-grade political agent.” …

    “Hitler and his fellow agents were given a short indoctrination course at Munich University. Lectures in political theory, banking, economics, and other subjects gave Hitler a chance to forumulate his own ideas.”

    Hitler was very good at using people, especially those who thought they were using him.
