Poll question: Is the desperate ploy by shrubco and the RW echo machine to "jump start"
Edited on Fri May-14-04 11:03 PM by Mayberry Machiavelli
America's hard-on for war by pimping the Berg murder going to work?

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

1. Backfire
The only people who seem to have their hatred for the A-Rabbs stoked is the right-wing Commentariat.

It's going to take another building full of people to pump up hatred -- and even then, it might not work. War without a clear-cut enemy, one who has a capital city and and a military, is no damned fun. And all Iraq is, is another meat-grinder into which we are feeding our young adults.

The carefully-titrated swelling of patriotic pride is wearing off pretty quick now that the death toll is rising.

2. I think there is a real desperation on the part of the Hannity's et al.
They SOUND as if they are real confident that this will get America's war hard-on going again, as is appropriate to the situation. (I listen to little snippets on the radio from time to time.) I think they (and Bush) are hoping this is true.
