This piece is a great summary of the mess the present administration has lead us into:

Dowbrigade News:

John Kerry, asked to comment on today’s milestone in Iraq – a political softball to his wheelhouse, just begging to be swatted over the wall – answered, in his gaunt, sonorous and sepulchral tomes, “Over 1000 of America’s sons and daughters have now given their lives to the war on terror.”

NO, NO, NO, John. That is the Bush lie. They have given their lives to an obscure, oil-drenched Texas family feud, to a personal vendetta that has nothing to do with the real security of the United States and in fact is making us less secure by breeding a million widows and orphans who blame us for their misfortunes and will spend the rest of their lives trying to get back at us.
