Hillary: We Stay in Iraq


Well, well, well.  Cards on the table.  How refreshing:

WASHINGTON, March 14 — Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton foresees a “remaining military as well as political mission” in Iraq, and says that if elected president, she would keep a reduced but significant military force there to fight Al Qaeda, deter Iranian aggression, protect the Kurds and possibly support the Iraqi military.

Must be that contested CfL primary coming up.  She's perfect for the spot, if a little precocious.  Senator Clinton said previously she would "end the war" if elected, and now, before being elected to her desired job, basically says, "Psych!"  Lieberman, on the other hand, said before elected, "No one wants to end the war more than I do."  He waited until very shortly after he was elected to write an op-ed entitled, "Why We Need More Troops in Iraq."

In other news, torture survivor Khalid Shaikh Mohammed confessed to plotting 9/11 and other crimes, including halitosis, the Star Wars prequels and the plot to murder Vince Foster (he says he dumped the body).  I'm just amazed they left him with enough brain cells intact to complete a coherent sentence.  Thank you, Scooter Libby, Abu Gonzales and all the rest for your oh so productive deployment of torture to get people to say any fucking thing.  By the way, where's Osama, again?

Now, I realize some people think it's torture to have to talk with a New York Times reporter, but I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that Hillary's scandalous candor was not coerced, Gitmo style.  Let's see how she goes about spinning being just a wee bit pregnant on neverending Iraq occupation.

Good morning, gang!  What news are you reading? 

UPDATE:  9:51 AM EST  Sen Cornyn (R-Box Turtle) just congratulated Senator Clinton on the Senate floor for her pro-occupation stance as quoted in today's New York Times.  Ellen Tauscher was once described as "Lieberman in a pants suit," but perhaps that distinction is highly coveted by others.

Republican Senator Warner trashed by WND columnist, Freepers



Pachacutec did not, as is commonly believed, die in 1471. To escape the tragic sight of his successors screwing up the Inca Empire he’d built, he fled east into the Amazon rain forest, where he began chewing lots of funky roots to get higher than Hunter Thompson ever dared. Oddly, these roots gave him not only a killer buzz, but also prolonged his life beyond what any other mortal has known, excluding Novakula. Whatever his doubts of the utility of living long enough to see old friends pop up in museums as mummies, or witness the bizarrely compelling spectacle of Katherine Harris, he’s learned a thing or two along the way. For one thing, he’s learned the importance of not letting morons run a country, having watched the Inca Empire suffer many civil wars requiring the eventual ruler to gain support from the priests and the national military. He now works during fleeting sober moments to build a vibrant progressive movement sufficiently strong and sustainable to drive a pointed stake through the heart of American “conservatism” forever. He enjoys a gay marriage, classic jazz and roots for the New York Mets.
