4000 Mosaic

Over the weekend U.S. casualties reached the 4000 milestone. A recent poll shows less than 30% of americans are following the war/occupation in Afghanistan and Iraq. Too busy watching American Idol I guess. I sometimes wonder if we show require people to pass a test on current events and issues prior to voting. Not enough people vote and too many uninformed people do. Why is McCain in this photo? Well he has been pushing for war in Iraq for a decade and he is basically running on Bush's foreign policy platform. He continues to inflate progress in Iraq, seeing segregation and bribing insurgents as progress. I lost all respect for McCain once he began kissing up to Bush and the religious right i.e. the Catholic hating War loving John Hagee. Watch Frontline tonight at 9:00 on PBS, you wont miss American Idol.
