Hillary and McCain

By Libby

I'm back to work today so just a short post at the moment. Despite my best intentions, I broke my own plea for unity this morning after reading this rumor, among other disturbing news. I collect the pieces at the Newshoggers post and it doesn't assemble into a pretty picture.

Meanwhile, I've been doing my serious McCain bashing at the Detroit News. You should be able to access the posts from that index, but it doesn't always work. They do regularly repair it though, check back if it doesn't and you don't feel like scrolling the blogs to get to my posts.

There's a big opportunity to trash McCain today. It appears he's repaying Hillary for all her kind words by attacking her on her occupation stance. Kind of bad timing though.

McCain is calling for her to apologize for saying the surge didn't work, just as it fell apart. It seems pretty clear that added troops didn't exactly quell the violence so much as Sadr's ceasefire had. It seems his "awakened" Shia militiamen are tired of waiting for political progress and the ceasefire is off. Death and general mayhem just exploded again, with fighting in Basra, increased suicide bombings and a recent sustained rocket attack on the Green Zone in Baghdad.

I don't understand how anyone can believe Clueless McCain is the guy to deal with this. He was so busy starting his build his case for bombing Iran that he apparently didn't notice any trouble brewing on his recent tour, from which he came back pronouncing how lovely Iraq is at this time of year.

Nothing more annoying than someone's acolyte, religious or just brainless. Whatever it is, you're dismissed as as a member of some category and referred to scripture.

Sorry SC. Your cat will have make do with catnip. The guy finally bored me enough to just delete all his comments. I have patience for that kind of shit this week.

Ah but I love being called a lefty - which apparently in his private universe means someone who doesn't like being lied to and taken for a fool.

LOL Fogg,

You can amuse yourself with him on your threads, although I notice he's a afraid of you and rarely ventures onto to them.

Trolls are bad for cats - all kinds of parasites and not very nutritious. Mostly hot air.

It didn't make sense to have these broken threads dangling from the bottom of your post, so I deleted them. Hope you don't mind.

LOL SC. You're free to delete your own comments but I thought they added to the thread even without the troll for reference.

My apologies, Libby. Is there a restore function?

It's all good SC. There probably is a restore function but I'm sure I don't know how to use it. Not to worry. There will be more threads.
