Iraq Vs Vietnam

George Bush finally came around today, admitting and even trumpeting the similarities between the Vietnam War and the. . .I'm not even sure what to call it anymore, Bush's Bain, The War for Oil. . .well, that thing going on in Iraq. I noted that there were a few comparisons that he forgot to mention:

1. No members of the Bush or Cheney families served in either one of these military theaters.

2. In a word: "quagmire".

3. Johnson refused to run again; Nixon resigned; we're waiting. . .

4. Asia - chopper evacs from rooftops; Iraq - "coming soon"

5. Lowest approval rating in history for a sitting president.

6. People in the streets protesting - marches on Washington DC.

7. Guaranteed election of a Democrat in the next presidential election (sweaters optional).

8. Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, et al.

9. The great silent majority (but the new one's starting to roar).

10. You can take all of the letters from vice-president Spiro Agnew's name and spell "grow a penis". Dick Cheney IS a dick.

I thought I was on Letterman's site. Good job.

bush would've stayed the course in 'Nam- as the pretendent, I mean. As an AWOL guard he wasn't anywhere near it.

What's another 500,000-1,000,000 U.S. deaths in the name of world domination?

And all of the lies are the same. If we pull out now, communism will take over the world.....
If we pull out now, American women will be wearing burkas and our kids will get beheaded.

Listening to Bush's speech just made me feel like reaching through the tv and giving him a thunk on the head. I did a post about his military "career" today.

I'll be back later....I have to go again. I hate it when life gets in the way of my blogging!

See ya later!
