What's 10,000 deaths? What are you excited about? It's only 10,000
out of 300 million.

Jack Burkman in Damage Control: Wanker

On Connected today, Jack defended the president with this logic. You have to listen to him to hear the shear "deadness in his heart" which is at the core of all apologists in a tragedy of this magnitude.

Jack: "I understand there are 10,000 people dead. It's terrible. It's tragic. But in a democracy of 300 million people, over years and years and years, these things happen."

These things happen. That's Jack's defense of the government. You'll always notice with charcters of his ilk, (a classic example of what AmericaBlog is reporting ) they always make wild statements without any evidence to back it up and shuck and jive their way around the issue. People like Burkman get on TV because they regurgitate idiotic premises and constantly interupt the other guest..

4. 9/11 only resulted in 3,000 deaths
yet we went to war twice, and had a high level investigation. Should the scrutiny in this case be AT LEAST as rigorous?

5. Then why get all hot and bothered about 9-11?
Only 3,000 dead. These things happen. Under the chimp's protection.

6. Wonder how Jack Burkman would feel if one of the 10,000
was someone he loved - if he loves anybody.

7. It'll be more than 10,000
I suspect there'll be close to 40,000 dead and that's being conservative. :(

8. Pardon me, I'll be a little crass--10,000 less of the likes of him
WOULD be a good thing for our country.

How can anybody with just a bit of humanity say things like this????
