Zombie Rumsfeld

With more and more soldiers dying daily, and I mean MORE AND MORE SOLDIERS DYING DAILY, even in comparison to the regular rate of soldiers that have been dying in Iraq since the occupation really went into full swing, and with the fact that the Pentagon has announced they are increasing the number of soldiers in Iraq, which is a reversal of their intention to decrease the number of soldiers there, maybe somehow, someday the Bush administration will admit that maybe someone, somewhere screwed the pooch on this one.

But no, BushCo has long made it a point to never admit they were wrong, even as they contradict themselves on newscasts or in print. Electing (or not electing him, as it were) the first time I can write off as blind ignorance, but if the man is actually re-elected in November, in light of the war he's leading us through and in light of the domestic policies that have wrecked the economy and would really like to wreck the environment not only on Earth but in space as well, then I'm going to be even crankier than usual. Their point of view on Iraq seems to be, "Ignore it until after the election and maybe it will go away!"

Meanwhile, soldiers keep dying, Iraqis keep dying, and members of right-wing media are calling for nuclear weapons over the deaths and mutilation of four soldiers. All three of you know that I'm a DEAN man at heart, but if I haven't said it before I'll say it now--Kerry is the way to go in November. He'll be the Democrat on the ticket, and he'll be the only one who can beat Bush, and it's not even a case of voting for the lesser evil. It's a matter of getting the stupid, blind evil far, far away from the White House and not letting the same group walk back into it in four, eight, or twelve years. I'm all for a multi-party system, but I say no more Republican Presidents until Rumsfeld and Cheney are dead of old age and their coffins are chained shut under six feet of concrete. Zombie Rumsfeld could do a lot of damage in the Pentagon, believe me.

P.S. Meredith, this means your lady Rice, too. Even if she was a swell lady in 2000, by playing along with BushCo for this long, she's just as bad as the rest of them.
