That's One Long, Slow, Learning Curve

Last Sunday on Bush cable news, Dick Cheney had this to say about Iraq.

"Well, I think if you look at what's transpired in Iraq, we have, in fact, made enormous progress."

I don't think anyone had the heart to ask Dick just how he defines the term "progress." The mindset of this administration, that we're just moving right along on our way to some sort of cathartic victory, is just unfathamable to me. And I thought I had lost all hope of actually understanding anything anyone in that administration was saying.

But then, Dick said this - “The threat that Iran represents is growing, it’s multi-dimensional, and it is, in fact, of concern to everybody in the region.”

And you know what? He's right. Of course he neglected to point out that the growing multi-dimensional threat is there thanks to our utterly lame-brained mangling.

Well done Dick.

condi said the exact same thing during her senate testimony...a lot of good things have happened as a result of our occupation there. Why, we no longer have Saddam, the brutal dictator who killed thousands of his own people? and don't forget, GW Bush told nicholas lehmann a few years ago that he had liberated more people than any other president...take THAT, abraham lincoln, you slacker!

These people are living on another planet.
