Quote du Jour

I remember after the attacks of September 11, as mayor of the city, I was very, very worried about al-Qaida and still am. But I'm even more worried about the actions and inactions of the Bush administration.
-- Baltimore Mayor Martin O'Malley, Monday. The right-wing attack machine is of course after O'Malley:
Franklin's appearance on Fox's The O'Reilly Factor resulted in about three minutes of O'Malley bashing with host Bill O'Reilly.

"So he is more worried about Bush than al-Qaida. I haven't seen Bush behead anybody lately, but maybe I missed that. Is this guy [O'Malley] just insane or what?" O'Reilly said on the show.

"He's a bit nutty. This is our mayor," Franklin replied.
For the record, Bill, there was an Iraqi child beheaded in the attack on a wedding party back in May. Of the probably tens of thousands of Iraqis killed in Bush's illegal invasion, that girl was probably not the only one beheaded. And Bush deserves at least some of the blame for the beheadings of Nicholas Berg and the Korean translator, since they probably would not have been there without the invasion, and might have been better protected if Bush hadn't botched the occupation. But then, O'Reilly misses a lot.
