At this (tipping) point, negativity about Iraq is justified. For every schoolgirl who can now attend school, I'm sure there's another one that's been killed by sectarian violence or even our own marines.

I'm ashamed that we as a country have perpetrated this situation on the Iraqi people and ourselves. The Haditha massacre is blood on all our hands for cheerleading our government into an unnecessary war that has placed our best and brightest in an untenable situation. Maybe next time we as a population will accurately consider the gravity of engaging in war and will avoid going off half cocked into an boondoggle that has made us poorer and less safe. Enjoy the fruits of your jingoism (I'm talking about Haditha and Abu Ghraib).

It further clouds every judgment of foreign policy he makes as he believes that fundamental Christianity is the only religion that matters, discounting Judaism, Buddhism, Islam and the many other religions of the world.

But we still wake up because we know that as moronic as he is, he is unable to pull off most of the stuff that he wishes that he could, witness the waste of time he and the Senate churned on the Marriage Amendment this week when real work could have been done.

We still wake up because we know that after six years, 70% of the country pretty much agree that he is a loser

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
