That's right, I've got your ferret. I found it last night at two AM at Damen and Warner. We actually almost ran over it. I wanted you to know that I am a horrible parent, and I've wasted no time getting to work raising your ferret in the worst possible way. It's friendly and loving and came when I called it on the street, which probably turned out to be one of the worst mistakes of its stinky little life, because I'm making a real mess of it. Some of my current parenting atrocities include:

-Letting it stay up all night watching violent television

It all comes down to weapons of mass destruction, for me. And they weren't there. Dick Cheney's going around accusing all of us of being revisionist now. But if you're trying to say that the war in Iraq was about anything other than WMD, that's revisionism. I don't care how many times Karl Rove, Dick Cheney, George Bush, Donald Rumsfeld, whoever, says that this war was about anything other than WMD, or that we were given a justification or rationale other than WMD.

I've got a long memory, and it was only a couple of years ago. I know why I was sent to Iraq; I know why I went to war. And when that proved to be false, I think that's when we lost our credibility and our world standing.

Let me emphasize: this is a decorated veteran of the Iraq invasion. He was there at the very moment it all happened. And he hates the Bush Admn, and says the reasons he was given as justification for the invasion of Iraq were dead wrong.

If this guy is not credible, NOBODY is credible.

How many more soldiers have to come forward before all the war cheerleaders get it? Or is it perhaps that the war cheerleaders don't, in fact, actually care about our soldiers?
