43. Oh my darling, can you ever forgive me for my sin of thinking badly of Republicans?
Here I was thinking that humble John Sidney McCain III's campaign staffer, paid lobbyist for Georgia, might have had something to do with it. But that was all a coincidence.

Georgia attacked separatists in South Ossetia and then Russia invaded to stop that but now you have told me

the Republicans didn't want it to happen !!

Oh golly, how on earth could I ever have doubted them. Can you ever forgive me?

I am so glad we have really smart people like you to set me straight and let me know that everything bad is not Bush's fault.

But it is tough for me to get there. You're going to have to give me time.

He and Cheney and their gang took over my country with a stealthy coup d'etat and then pushed an invasion of a country on false premises that resulted in the death of 4,000+ american soldiers and hundreds of thousands of Iraqi civilians but that is just A FEW BAD THINGS.

There are some bad things they did not create-- like the Tori and Dean show on E! television. Or sauteed chicken liver.
