Actor Wonders Why Rumsfeld Hung Out At Hollywood Movie Set
Cast member Jesse Bradford marvels, "What was funny is that he stuck around for a while. It's like, 'Don't you have anything better to do? Youre supposed to be running the country.'"

5. He just believes that courage and honor are gotten from a movie
plot and a script. He desperately needs both so he went to where to see if some of it could rub off on him. He is a media slut, anything to make himself look macho - a lot like Chucklenuts. Those who can, do. Those who can't just mouth off platitudes and swagger...and hang out with pretend statesmen (and I'm not talking about Hollywood). Another day at the office for Rummy.

7. Trying to allign Iraq with WW2...
Edited on Fri Aug-11-06 12:37 PM by TwoSparkles
"Flags of Our Father" is about Iwo Jima.

Another pathetic, Rumsfeld attempt at trying to psychologically equivocate WW2 with the discombobulated, ill-planned, perverse Iraq war.

If I hear/see one more comparison between WW2 and the Iraq fiasco--I'll scream.

Instead of spewing continual lies--you would think that anything to do with WW2--
would remind Rumsfeld of the glaring failures of the Iraq war.

In WW2--we stated, cogent goals that were consistent throughout the war.

Unlike WW2, Rumsfeld went into a foreign country with absolutely no frickin plan beyond the first week of battle. In Rumsfeld's own words, "We underestimated the psychology of the Iraqi people."

In WW2--we planned and trained for an entire year before our paratroopers were dropped
on the beaches of Normandy. Our guys knew where every berm was within 20 miles! In
Iraq--we "underestimated" "misunderestimated" so badly that we've incited a civil war.

What Rumsfeld has done in Iraq, is equivalent to us landing in Normandy--and fucking everything
up so badly and inciting so much anger that we start a civil war in France!

How DARE that evil piece of shit publicly stand in the shadow of WW2 and pretend that his
pathological failure even remotely resembles WW2.

10. Because hanging out on a movie set is a cakewalk
and you hang out on the movie sets you have, not the ones you whish you had.
And you hang out on the movie sets you know, not the unknown movie sets...
