Open Thread

Oh, I whole-heartedly agree with Digby:

It was a terrible accident of history that September 11th happened when the lunatic neocon cabal was in power. Nothing could have been worse. It was more damaging than the attacks themselves. We'll be dealing with the fall out from that strange happenstance for a generation.

Here's what I wrote to friends in January 2003:

It is a terrible tragedy that 9/11 happened on his watch, because it gave him a messianic mission to stamp the world in his vision. Can you imagine what danger he will put our troops in and what a dangerous thing it is for him to believe every victory just makes him more powerful and invincible?

Needless to say, Bush has proven to be even worse than I could have imagined in those days and he's not done yet.

So, what's on your mind?

Update: more journalists have died in Iraq than in WW2. I guess Bush's little war of choice is not doing too bad in the ratings game. Now that his war has surpassed the record of journalist deaths from WW2, Vietnam and Korea, I guess his next challenge is to go for the prize by out-doing the Civil War record. And I guess his good friends, the warmongering chickenhawks, will continue to spend time talking about how journalists aren't really covering the war in Iraq.
