My god, I had forgotten how awful the puppy dog press acted when Bush pulled his outrageous charade and declared "Mission Accomplished".

The comments on this are unbelievable.

This first one is priceless-
Quote:
I've asked this elsewhere...

...but it bears repeating here:

Does Chris Matthews have a set of custom fitted knee-pads embossed with the presidential seal?

Seriously, in at least the obvious figurative terms, Tweety regularly does for this administration what we were endlessly told Monica did for Clinton.

Maybe we should all get together and buy Matthews a RED dress to make the counterpoint complete?

Meanwhile, remembering the press coverage of the infamous carrier landing, i wonder how anybody in the press managed to say anything more than the guttural sounds of slurping and what was then an ongoing war-gasm

I could have wrote that but crapture did a real fine job on this. Tastelessly dynamic and expletively suggestive. War-gasm- the wet dream fantasy repervs have when they dream of dead women and children. If they ain't fucking them, they're killing them.
