Okay, since the media's pissing all over itself like a puppy when mommy comes home...

...I have to ask.
1: What does Saddam Hussein have to do, in any way shape or form, with the status of things in the Middle East? Okay, the Iraqis know that he's not running their country now. But surely they knew that... well what, when the US came tromping in the front door and announced 'HELLO, WE'RE HERE FOR SADDAM'? So seriously: what's the benefit to them- what's the benefit to us?
2: apparently there is an article in the London newspaper the Telegraph which throws the whole war on Iraq into grim, horrifying contrast. This article went to press about oh 5 hours before Saddam was captured. Anybody wanna bet that Bin Laden 'gets captured' the week we go into the New Hampshire primaries?
3: Oh, and isn't it good to see that the evil horrible liberal media has fallen in step with the administration within a mere 3 years, since it was the tool of the devil all through Clinton's administration?

To me, the whole thing is starting to look more and more like the work of a poorly-orchestrated cabal. The Manichurean Candidate, gentlemen. Not The Keystone Kops. I'm just surprised nobody seems to notice this. My folks were in the midwest and Pennsylvania 8 months ago, and said when they got home that they couldn't believe the lack of critical thought involved in the view of their relatives in re: the 'war on Iraq' (read: the Geneva-Convention-violating invasion of Iraq). Everyone they spoke to was going on and on about how evil Saddam was and how he had something to do with the World Trade Center attack.
I don't know what troubles me more: the fact that the attempts to divert attention are so fucking obvious-- or the fact that they don't honestly need to be more subtle.

    I do. However, I think the answer to making this happen is roughly my approach to encouraging it: simply not voicing the racist bullshit that you…
