A response to Dick Cheney's attack on John Kerry, from the blog Abject Funk:
Today Big Dick claimed that if John Kerry was president, Saddam would still be in power.
He's right, he probably would be, and in charge of a politically, militarily, and economically isolated nation without any capability of threatening the U.S. or anyone else. Now that shit scares me.
Thankfully, our troops are now the targets of daily attacks and it only costs about $200 billion a year to have them over there. That shit makes me feel safer, and that we really are winning the war on terror. It's also nice that we have a terrorist free-for-all zone of our own creation smack dab in the center of the Middle East. That was freakin' brilliant. Iraq is now the center of the war on terror only because we have provided the targets and a lawless situation that is a suicidal fundamentalist's wet dream....
