84. Protests in Madrid
With all due respect to the millions of people in Madrid who have taken to the streets in protest for being lied to by their 'leader', watching the extended (15 minutes or more) coverage on CNN only pisses me off when I reflect on the little to no coverage that anti-Iraq invasion protesters --who were equally as vocal, outraged, and numerous-- received in the US and abroad.

Please tell the children to leave the room because uncle Smokey is about to use a bit of profanity: fuck CNN!
