Gag me with a ladle
From right-wing cartoonist Gary Varvel.
This is the crap of the week you're supposed to believe: Even though the week began with 125 people killed in Iraq, and the 1500th US soldier just died there, and Afghanistan is a total opium-producing mess, and a relatively stable Lebanon has been thrown into turmoil--by George, freedom is on the march! Jon Stewart's disgusting interview with Nancy Soderberg Tuesday night, Fred Kaplan's slightly-less triumphal article on Slate, numerous political cartoons besides this one.
The world is a less free, more dangerous place than it was four years ago, or four months ago, and George W. Bush is the reason. All of this BS about democracy is exactly that--BS.
