OH. MY. GOD. Stop the presses! No! Start the presses! It’s UNTHINKABLE! It’s UNBELIEVABLE! IT’S AN OUTRAGE!……….

It’s in the wounded soldier’s apartment units at Walter Reed Hospital! THERE IS A BROKEN SHOWER TILE AND WATER STAIN ON THE CEILING!

Life will NEVER be the same. Start the investigation, hold the hearings, fire someone, anyone, but for the love of God DO SOMETHING!!!

What? WHAT? All this dismemberment, disfigurement, the severed spinal cords, the melted faces, these were…….UNNECCESARY? Huh? You mean that these men and women were sent on a SNIP HUNT? To look for what the man who sent them LIED about being a THREAT TO NATIONAL SECURITY? Are you saying that all this suffering never had to happen, but rather than it STOPPING, the guy who actually JOKED about it by pretending to look under his desk for the “weapons of mass destruction”, just keeps sending them into the human meat grinder?

We will hold people accountable! We will make sure this never happens again by God! We will demand the ear of the media and we will scream bloody murder until the unimaginably callous, indifferent, incompetent, CORRUPT, TREASONOUS RAT BASTARDS ARE HELD TO ACCOUNT.......FOR THE MOULD ON THE CEILING! NO ONE ABUSES OUR MILITARY AND GETS AWAY WITH IT! OUT DAMNED SPOT, OUT!

What –seriously- did you expect? How exactly does one tell an armless legless human torso with his face melted off from attempting to find and destroy an imminent threat to his country, that the threat was actually near the President’s desk? Hey buddy, those WMD have got to be under there somewhere!
Damned shame you can’t walk or hold a rifle anymore. Maybe you’d finish your mission and eliminate the real threat to your country. What? Congress? Oh yeah, they’re on the case for you. You’ve got new ceiling tile coming next week. Given that you spend most of your time laying on your back, they thought you’d appreciate it. You know, “support the troops!”

You can send your letter of appreciation to Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi hence forth.

In defense of the conspiratorial world view

9/11: If I knew nothing else about it, I'd know this.

Why they really won't impeach him and how the failure to impeach carries the seeds of the next war.

A man without a country; The price of Truth.

Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi: this is pathetic, heartbreaking and treasonous. You MUST relieve Bush of command.

"Conservatism" = We The People "Drowned in a bath tub".
