actual tonight O'Reilly quote
he is talking to a Time correspondent in Iraq: "this is make or break for President Bush. Do the insurgents know this? Do they know if they keep it up, he could lose the election"?
Yeah Bill, thats right. They sit in their dirt floor huts without food, electricity or running water, dodging Abrams tanks and machine gun fire while trying to bury their dead family members, and discuss the upcoming elections in America. Moron.

3. Actually, they DO talk about US elections
Don't think that they are in Afghanistan. They are a modern people and are quite familiar with things like cell phones, and TV's. And dont think that the malfunctioning electricity grid has put an end to all TV in Iraq. I suspect they know how to hook up a car battery or generator.

4. Iraqis are not idiots. They were a civilization for 2 thousand years
before the USA was a wiggling sperm in the scrotums of disenchanted Englishmen and Europeans.

And do not imagine they have forgotten the 84 year old colonial endeavors with the resultant revolution.

8. I never write "LOL", but dammit, I'm laughing out loud at that one
"They were a civilization for 2 thousand years before the USA was a wiggling sperm in the scrotums of disenchanted Englishmen"

That's a keeper

No insurgency until after the election! Now get out there with those campaign fliers!

9. Maybe Rove should air some Shrub commercials in Iraq!
Use some of that $200 million to warn those wacky insurgents that Kerry is a flip-flopping liberal! That'll stop 'em.

11. All the Repuke talking heads are draft dodgers
who know nothing about the military or combat. It's like a big game
to these idiots.

These people take me back to a little club in Washington, D.C. called
The Cellar Door. It was 1971, and I was in the Army then and hit that
place every chance I got. Well, one night there were these two TV guys
at the table next to me and a friend (he was a Vietnam combat vet).
These fools were discussing things Nixon should do in 'Nam to help his
re-election bid in 72. My friend just shook his head in disbelief.
