14. And if there would have
been fuckups..well, it wasn't A$$hole's fault cause he was on the phone to our Soldiers in Iraq..telling them what a cozy Thanksgiving he was having by the fucking fire.

2. If only it would be one of these times
I really wish they could do something and I don't care if it's a repuke or a Democratic adminstration that does it. I get so tired of these round and round "peace" talks that are touted as a fantastic breakthrough only to have both sides blow the doors off of any agreement before the ink is dry.

I'm getting so tired of the whole Isreal/Palestine issue, I don't think anybody in power there really wants to do anything to bring real peace.

3. C'mon, that was a great photo op....
In fact, I heard NPR news reviewing it and comparing it to the photo op with Clinton in 1993.

22. It's on the screen
then out their mouths. They don't actually research the news to know what they're saying is true or not.

4. Bushie PsyOps at CNN have far greater reach and power than Bushie PsyOps at Fox
because some the 74% OF Imperial Subjects of Amerika who have no representation, already know Fox is a Bushie Lie Machine.

CNN is really not all that much different from Fox, especially in the eyes of the Free World, whoever is carrying the flag for that shrunken entity these days.

In any case, I would expect CNN to continue doing what they have been doing forthe past decade or more, which is to say broadcasting the Bushie Memes 24/7 with just a few small exceptions in order to give themselves the Plausible Deniability the Bushies so crave.

5. A breakthrough would be when the putz in charge can pronounce the names of the participants
correctly.

6. Bush got to try and pronounce a name in Hebrew
That is not a breakthrough?

Next time, he will try to CORRECTLY pronounce a name in Hebrew.

That will REALLY be a breakthrough.......

10. Much like the "surge" is a victory...
One day of good news is a breakthrough and two months of good news in a surge is a victory. Neither is true. It's wishful thinking more than anything else. Not totally in touch with reality.
