    And so what's the ad at the bottom?

    'Get Ann Coulter's articles delivered by FREE weekly email!'

    Methinks google needs to rethink their ad protocol.

    Hm, that is just so quaint. Haven't some people heard that 9/11 changed anything? Besides, "you might hit me, so I'll break your nose" is an example of Christian values any freedom-loving nation must be based on.

    The Sean Hannity "quote" was spot-on. It sounded just like Mr. Vannity. The Onion, bless 'em, hoisted that overblown, lycanthropic-looking fool on his own petard!

    Yeah! Yeah! So Washington doesn't like the Iraq War. What about Adams? What about Jefferson? This is just another example of liberals "cherry-picking" their sources.

    [​IMG] I don't know Adams' position but ex-president Jefferson has repeatedly warned against involvement in foreign wars.

    If George Washington said it you know it must be the truth. :D

    Scenario: Caesar on NBC's Meet the Press.

    Q: Caesar, from your significant experience please give us insights into the Iraqi War.

    Caesar: First of all I do not comprehend the point of the war. Mr. Bush has stated that the point of the war is to free the Iraqi people from an insufferable tyrant. This is totally beyond me. The point of conquest is to defeat the enemy, take the land, slaves and goods. If people want to be free, what ever that means, then they should fight their own battles perhaps with a little calculated help from interested parties.

    However what ever the President's reason he has totally mishandled this military operation. He is an amateur using amateur soldiers. All opposition should have been wiped out early in the campaign. I can only shake my head in disgust at how poorly this whole thing has been handled.

    Sorry I have to go. I understand the Britons are causing trouble.

    Caesar shakes his head, rises from his seat and fades from view.

    In response to Nakia's post, I feel obliged to add that actually Alexander was NBC's first choice, but was too busy marching into Iran to take time off. Caesar was merely the second choice.

    :spin: Actually Alexander expressed an opinion on Bush, Jr. that was so foul that NBC happily withdrew its' request.
