39. It's that neocon philosophy at work - saying it makes it so
Edited on Fri Sep-16-05 04:54 PM by matt819
We can fight a war in Iraq.
We can rebuild Iraq when we're not destroying it.
We can rebuild New Orleans and the entire Gulf Coast
And we can do all this without raising taxes and by continuing to reduce taxes on the wealthy.


And I believe in the tooth fairy.

And Santa Claus.

And in Glenda, the Good Witch of the North.
