A recent email from

It’s time for the American people to demand that George W. Bush put forward a clear understandable plan for achieving America’s goals in Iraq and bringing the vast majority of out troops home by the end of 2006.

The time is overdue for a plan with a clarity and vision equal to the valor and sacrifices of America’s brave armed forces. Help make that plan a reality …

The man loves a plan. Weird thing is, his own plan for Iraq was essentially similar to that of the re-elected administration.

    1. Geeze.  Check out the “Supreme Court” section in the upper right:

      “Sign up today and we will send you . . . action items.”

      I feel like I’m at work.

      I agree.  And it’s high time that Bushtsunamihurricanesandtornados puts forward a plan, clear and understandable plan, for eliminating all poverty, everywhere, by the end of 2006.

      You wanted the Presidency Mr. Compassionate Conservative My Ass, well you got it bucko.  Solve all the problems.  By the end of next year.

    1. Oh, an *understandable* plan. Why didn’t you say so?

      We kill the terrorists before they kill everybody else, including us.

      Of course, you have to read up on your Sun Tzu and John Boyd before you can fully comprehend the complex beauty of this. But it’ll be worth it.

    1. Kerry reminds me of one of these goobers who goes around trying to peddle blueprints for a perpetual motion machine to bemused patent attorneys. Except in Kerry’s case, we’re talking about a perpetual non-motion machine.

      Hey, John, vox populi and all that. Go home and shaddup!

    1. The temperature of a perpetual non-motion machine would of course be absolute zero.  Which coincidentally is how many marks Kerry will win for that cr4p.

    1. Kerry has a secret plan for France, the Utopia he adores. He sees a four state solution, one for the Muslims, one for whatever Frogs wish to remain in that fever swamp, one, consisting of high-end shopping opportunities, gourmet food establishments, ritzy hotels, for his friends and for Hollywood and East Coast liberals who hate America, and one which can made safe for ketchup, which the French consider an abomination.

    1. #11: Being a fellow of plebeian taste, that last enclave sounds right for me. I don’t know why the French get all, well, Frenchified over the use of ketchup. Most of their especialites sound like things that have been buried in sauces to make them palatable. Snails? C’mon! Anyhow, where I come from – the hill country of North Carolina – ketchup was always considered a perfectly acceptable condiment for steaks, possum, catfish, whatever. Why, even the cream of society – you know, the folks who had those little plastic tubes attached to their mailboxes to hold the newspaper – they all liked it just fine.

    1. #12& #13, I also love the stuff and did not mean to suggest any slander against it. The “Kerry Zone” in the Kerry 4-state solution was to create a duty free port for his wife’s fortune money factory, the Heinz Corporation. She did nothing to creat this company but inherited it from her late husband, who probably would have refused to die had he known that his fortune would be married to J. Kerry and used to help finance this phonies attempt to become Pres.

      Yeah, those Mount Pilot people did seem to like ketsup a whole heap a bunch.  But the people of the big city, Raleigh, now that’s an entirely different thing altogeter.

    1. Ok, Wronwright, please make my apologies to Our Dark Lord, but I never saw the memo stipulating that we have to use what I take to be the Latin (“ketsup”). Gonna lose a lot of support in Siler City.

    1. Mr. Kerry, our president has a very specific plan. When the Iraqis are able to manage their own security we’ll be coming home. When will that be? When the Iraqis are able to manage their own security. How long will that take? As soon as the Iraqis are able to manage their own security.

      I know this is an extremely complex plan and is very nuanced, but you are going to have to study it and see if you can comprehend it.

    1. You know, ketchup (ketjap) is of Indonesian origin, as is the name. It is profoundly insensitive of the French to reject one of the staple condiments of the largest Muslim nation in the world.

      Could that be part of why these little kids are lighting matches?

    1. #20 Paco

      Your instincts about French snootiness and my research about Indonesian Muslim ketjap have trapped the truth: Frenchmen and women turn their noses up at the Indonesian Muslims’ favorite condiment gaining, thereby, the undying hatred of an entire nation. And they thought they were home free just spending the odd five minutes pissing on the U.S. Pah! Idiots.

    1. Now you know why John (KETCHUP IS KING) Kerry Heinz got 90% of the Muslim vote in the last U.S. election. They thought they would get a free bottle of KETJAP for each vote. And I bet you thought they voted for him because of his support for Sad-a and the Palestinians.

    1. #12 Paco, Ambrose Bierce, in The Devil’s Dictionary, defined mayonnaise as “One of those sauces that serve the French in place of a state religion.”

    1. 21: ekw, you go from strength to strength. You should have been the guy we sent to Niger. And Stats, you’ve nailed the reason for muslim support for Kerry (silly me; I always thought it was because his face resembled the prow of a “ship of the desert”).

    1. Niger, Pacomon? Those Iraqi businessmen were there for the chickpeas, pure and simple. These are the best chickpeas in the world with a savory essence stirring the faintest memory of autumn nights on the Euphrates when the temperature plummets to 112 and a man remembers that moment when first he saw a woman’s metacarpal*.

      Hell, man, that’s worth a UN sanction or two, don’t you think?
      *In the Muslim world this is what Westerners understand as “second base”

    1. #23: Funny and apposite, Michael. Here’s a dig at the French from Mencken’s Dictionary of Quotations (cruel but clever):

      “The toast of each Briton in war’s dread alarms/O’er bottle or bowl, is ‘Success to our arms’/Attack’d, put to flight, and forc’d from each trench/’Success to our legs’ is the toast of the French” (Anon: “The Defeats of the French Army”, 1759). To be fair, though, the French have been possessed of tremendous martial spirit at various times in history. They made up the bulk of the armies of Christendom during the First Crusade, and, if memory serves me, they also constituted the majority of the one unified fighting force that routinely struck terror into the hearts of the muslims: the warrior monks of the sovereign military order of the Knights Templar. After the crusader loss at the Battle of Hatin, over 100 Knights of the Temple were executed by Saladin. They were first given the standard offer of clemency in return for embracing Islam. Not a single knight denied his faith. And there is always Napolean, of course.
