An Observation and a Question

The observation is that Senator Clinton was just spouting the same bullshit about the failure in Iraq being the fault of the pretend government or the Iraqis themselves.

At one point she said "We asked our military to overthrow Saddam, they did."

'Scuze me Senator. We asked our military to invade and break up a connection with Al-Qaeda which didn't exist, to take down a chemical weapons program that didn't exist, and to end a nuclear weapons program which didn't exist.

Instead of leaving, and saying something along the lines of "Oops, silly me, I thought you had stuff. . ." Bush made up a whole raft of new reasons for invading. Some of which Senator Clinton has bought into. She has also bought into the whole "Our military has behaved superbly" myth. When the facts are that they were ordered to destroy three things that didn't exist and in the process of that mission created one of the very things that they were sent to take down.

Again, Senator, please. Abu Grahib? Haditha? Fallujah? Guantanamo? A superbly led and functioning military would have refused illegal orders. A superb force would have had more general officers with enough spine to stand up to a bullying frat boy president.

Now a totally off topic question.

Has anybody else noticed from the trailers of A Mighty Heart that Angelina Jolie is using the exact same accent she used in Alexander?

Or is it just me?

Totally agree on your observation.

Don't know the answer to your question because, while I love me a good epic from the ancient world, I didn't bother to see "Alexander."

Now, MB, I have a question: could we please, please, please have another Superstition Ride installment? (Thank you) Not fair to bring us to the verge of a sweat and not follow through, if you catch my drift...

If the Dems. nominate someone acceptable to the general public, and not just acceptable to the Dem. establishment, they'll probably not just win, but get a blowout.

If they nominate Evita?
