Sad Anniversaries

One year ago today: Grrr.... Shockingly, Kerry lost. One year ago yesterday: I noted that the U.S. war in Iraq had created all kinds of negative consequences and wondered whether some “showdown with al Qaida leaders” was orchestrated to distract Americans from looking closely at the war's anniversary. * Today: Tens of thousands protested the war in Iraq, and in the U.S.? Nothing that I know of. We're too busy worrying about baseball players on steroids (gasp!) and one woman and a feeding tube. It's great to see we have our priorities straight. *The link to that “showdown” has now broken and I've forgotten what it was all about. Awesome. Blogs are basically useless when links break. Is there any news source you know of that leaves its articles online so that links won't break?

Your cavalier attitude about "one woman and a feeding tube" is exactly why your party and ideology has been a huge loser.

Go ahead and tell me that liberalism and the Democratic Party isn't a failure. Go kid yourself. That's why your people have to run to judges to get your way, because you can't get anyone to vote for your preferences.

Ok then. Can you explain how or why Congress has authority to be meddling in this issue? I'm also curious: Who are "my people"?

Run to judges to get our way? Damn those Founding Fathers and their separation of powers and concern over a tyranny of the majority!!!

Just curious, though... how is venue shopping not "run(ning) to judges to get your way"?
