An attempt to disengage
If you got all upset that Bush let 380 tons of high explosives get loose in Iraq...hang on a minute. The damage from that story(as planned) has probably been done but it's already being debunked. Bush may very well have failed to plan the invasion to your(or my) tastes, but those explosives going missing were NOT his fault.
Dig a little deeper and you can see that on its face the story is not true. The explosives *did* go missing but, much as the NYT would like you to believe otherwise, the truth of the matter is coming out. NBC was the first to run a corrective story that tells the details NYT didn't publish. Bush didn't really have anything to do with it, and you can easily check this out for yourself. Go ahead, I dare you.
Blogger finally posted my posts, and I've got more planned. Right now I just want to go on a punching rampage though, and that's not so good for disseminating ideas. Well...it is useful sometimes. Depends on the idea, I guess.
So I'm taking a break from the world now. There aren't enough fart and booger jokes to lower my blood pressure after I sift through the news of the day, so I'm appealing to a higher level of distraction. I'll be back in a little while to post, but for now you're on your own. I need a breather.
