I'm Sorry

Memorial Day is celebrated in very different ways by Americans. One group does the pomp and circumstance thing, pins medals on war veterans, and continues on their merry way starting wars for economic rather than moral reasons.

Another small but growing very fast group of people honors our warriors by asking for peace.

I think Memorial Day ought to be a National Day of Apology.

Instead of placing a wreath in the unknown soldier's grave or whatever, I think the President ought to stand before the American people and say he's sorry for being so inadequate as a human being that he started the worst war in American history for all the wrong reasons and is simply incompetent at this point and unable to fix anything whatsoever, much less this war.

We, the People, should then look each other in the eye and apologize to each other for being so inadequate and undeserving of our freedom and comfort that we would ever elect such an inadequate person to the Presidency of the United States in the first place.

We have a "sorry" President and I'm sorry.


Peace and happy Memorial Day. May History forgive us.

The Bush War Theory Explained


Prairie Weather on how the Troops feel about the War



From our "I Hate Dick Cheney" Department:

"As Army officers on duty in the war on terror, you will now face enemies who
oppose and despise everything you know to be right, every notion of upright
conduct and character, and every belief you consider worth fighting for and
living for. Capture one of these killers, and he'll be quick to demand the
protections of the Geneva Convention and the Constitution of the United States.
Yet when they wage attacks or take captives, their delicate sensibilities seem
to fall away."

Cheney is the kind of guy who gives slime a bad name. He must think the American Electorate is the enemy. I mean after all...We, the American People, would also like to be reassured that he would grant us the protections of the Constitution of the United States...Don't you think?

Is this a problem, Mr. Cheney?


Digby points out a fine detail:


"One more thing: the West Point honor code says, "a cadet will not lie, cheat or
steal or tolerate those who do." How in the world did they justify having Dick
Cheney speak at the commencement?"

And just to clear up one little detail...Dick Cheney isn't Not on the DC Madame's contact list.

What a piece of scum. (Hey Scum...If you're reading this, it;s a figure of speech, OK? No insult intended. What else would you prefer that we compare Cheney to? We're flexible, and always willing to do right by an honorable piece of scum. We had to take back that coment about slime mold, for instance...How were we to know slime mold was a colony of very liberal and progressive amoebas?...Sorry...The massive group sex thing had us confused...and a bit envious, actually.)

  1. Every time that man utters the phrase "enemies foreign and domestic" I expect someone, a soldier, one of his body guards, anyone to cuff him. But even the Democrats, sorely in need of a bargaining chip, won't pursue justice against Dark Lord Cheney.

    Kucinich has three co-sponsors on his articles of impeachment last I checked.

    Actually, the worst war for Americans was the USA vs. CSA. Americans killing Americans. Go figure.
