How's This for a Marriage?

How's this  for a  marriage...Dick Cheney and Mel Gibson?   They're both practiced at spewing obscenities, for one thing, as well as mistaking  monuments with the stuff  from  which low  budget movies are made.  They both have their passion, and both are mistaken if they think it has anything  to do with Christ. Well, if you don't believe me, just ask the former residents of Baghdad, that is, the  Baghdad before Cheney and his Fortune 500 cronies took over.
To say that House Democrats don't support the troops only goes to show just how much   closer this administration has come to the stuff  of monarchies, and  totalitarian states. If history can  be seen as  a series of mimetic  events, the Bush regime shows, if nothing else, that  what the president  calls  "poitical theatre"  is witnessing its finest hour.   Far be it for  me, or anyone  to eclipse or upstage the vice president's histronic claim that the House  Dems are   sending a message to "terrorists," but,   hey, somebody needs to remind  Mr.  Cheney that  there were no "terrorists" in Iraq until he and his homeboys chose to invade, and topple  a formerly sovereign  state.     And ,  while we're  on the subject of history,  history  may well prove that legislation  passed yesterday, by the House, calling for pulling troops  out by next year  was too  little too  late.    Iraq is one problem that  won't be solved by throwing  more  coins into the war purse.
If,  as they claim,  Mr Cheney and Mr. Bush are  looking  for  "stability  in Iraq," then their only hope in finding it is  in a concrete, and coherent exit strategy.   What's  more, if Mr. Cheney really wants to support the troops, he'll resign, go home to Halliburton where he  belongs, and take Rove, Gonzales, and his other lapdogs  with him.
