|Today's Bush Joke||Humor & Fun|
Bush is going to send more troops to Iraq. That's the solution. And I was thinking: you think he'd being doing this if he were still in the National Guard? — David Letterman
You spend a lot of time posting Bush jokes and denigrating the current administration and its decisions. You spend hardly any time at all offering constructive criticism or proposing alternatives. This is why it's difficult to take you seriously instead of viewing you merely as another extreme liberal driven by anger and hatred.

Kevin, here's an alternative for Bush: get out of Iraq. There is a less than zero chance that this will end well for anyone, including Iraq, including the Middle East, including the U.S., including the rest of the world. It can only get worse. There is NO chance of setting up a democracy in Iraq, because they've never had one before, and their mindset (religious zealotry, vengefulness, tribal feuding, corruption, etc) will not permit the establishment of a peaceful secular society and government. A theocracy maybe, a democracy no chance. Bush and his ilk ought to have known better. The U.S. has lost the battle and the Iraqis are going to have to settle their internal strife on their own.

Yes, the alteratives are obvious. Please pardon us for having a few chuckles while our President goes about making the world worse in every way.

The world is depressing enough for those of us who are willing to look around us and see that it's going to hell in a handbasket. There are plenty of people offering constructive ideas to GWB... The Iraq study group, for instance. The problem is not a lack of constructive ideas, but a lack of constructive listening on the part of our "leadership."
Jonathan, thank you for leaving the constructive ideas to someone else, and giving us something to laugh about. I love to laugh at Bush, but I'd be a lot happier if he weren't so incompetent that it's funny.
