ARE YOU WATCHING THE WASTE OF MONEY ON THIS PAGEANTRY FOR THE WARMONGER RUMMY???
OMG....WTF are they doing?? This has been going on for at least an hour. I have the teevee muted on C-SPAN and just looked up and it's STILL going on! What a damn WASTE. I wonder what they pay all these Military people to perform at these things? Instead of this disgusting display, his ass should be marching to THE HAGUE! :wtf:

1. I can't. I just got over the flu and can't handle more VOMITING.
I hope the Hague drops charges on him soon.

3. "[W]hat they pay all these Military people to perform"
IIRC they will get what they always get, 24/7: Their base pay plus any benefits. That's it.

5. Yay to the lady who called from Manahawkin, NJ. She stated she'd be
glad to see the backs of all of them and was glad Rumsfeld was gone. Good call.

6. What they are doing is ...
what they call "in your face politics" they are telling us that Rummy is great and the disaster over in Iraq is great! This is the same as when he gave the honors to Bremmer,Tommy Franks and the guy who use to be the head of the CIA...they didn't deserve those honors either... Did anyone else who has left this administration get a special ceremony...

9. Just like reagan's funeral
Tribute to a false god that costs millions and millions for no good reason at all, except to trump "conservatism" to the nation.

7. Shouldn't they do something about the bloody war instead?
Rome burns and Nero fiddles

8. Yeah, it's ridiculous...
artillery salutes, Revolutionary War era marching bands, I'm waiting for them to break out the cheerleaders.

To bad they don't put a fraction of that effort into attending soldier's funerals.

10. Maybe they're using the funds allocated for next year's
"victory celebration". Looks like Smirk won't be needing that.

11. I think this is PR as the country falls Bush does more on TV.
It is silly but also in top form since Nov. Look for a lot more as behind the curtain all sorts of bad things go on.

12. Randi said that Rummy thinks the party is for him, but in
truth the Pentagon is celebrating that he's going.

13. If it'll make you feel better, they're wasting a gazillion times more
on the War on Terrah.

15. Hmmm This might be paid for by the Iraq Victory Party Money
IIRC they set aside over $100 million for an "Iraq Victory Celebration" in the Iraq War Funding bills that have passed. Maybe now that they know we lost this damn thing, Bushco is going to spend it on BS celebrations for his buddies.
