Ouch, commie stooge? That hurts.

Just how do you get that 1 million were saved? Were they in concentration camps or something? I've never heard of this.

Oh, and mike, while your out saving the world from the boogie man, could you pick me up some tofu?

It's certainly been my experience that tank killer teams are infested with commie stooges. We used to call Ft. Hood "The Red Square of Texas." I'm glad he's on to you.

What's most sad is that anyone gave Bush a good approval rating, in 2003 or now!!

Ooooooh! Elmo is a terrorist enabler!

Don't worry, Elmo. You can go to a support group for that...

"Hello, my name is Elmo and I'm a terrorist enabler..."

Mike's afraid of the boogeyman, too, I gather.

Good information, but what's missing is the number of Blackwater 'contractors' (Read: Mercenaries) currently working in Iran, and how much we're paying them.

I'm not even sure that information's available.
