Quotes of the Morning: Success!

“Iraqi security forces announced on Monday the capture of a senior al-Qaida in Iraq figure, and the U.S. ambassador said the risk of civil war from last week's sectarian violence was over.”
-AP, February 27, 2006

“See? How dare people doubt Fearless Leader? We just caught another senior al-Qaida figure (boy there sure seem to be a lot of them) and the threat of civil war is over. Things aren’t so bad. I don’t know why people are always so fussy about the situation there. It’s just like that whole ‘ports’ thing. You’d think that people just don’t trust Fearless Leader and his orcs.. um, I mean minions.. um, I mean Administration.. to do the right thing..”

“Grisly attacks and other sectarian violence unleashed by last week's bombing of a Shiite shrine have killed more than 1,300 Iraqis, making the past few days the deadliest of the war outside of major U.S. offensives, according to Baghdad's main morgue. The toll was more than three times higher than the figure previously reported by the U.S. military and the news media.
Hundreds of unclaimed dead lay at the morgue at midday Monday -- blood-caked men who had been shot, knifed, garroted or apparently suffocated by the plastic bags still over their heads. Many of the bodies were sprawled with their hands still bound -- and many of them had wound up at the morgue after what their families said was their abduction by the Mahdi Army, the Shiite militia of cleric Moqtada al-Sadr.”
-Washington Post, February 27, 2006

“Sure a lot of Iraqis are dying, but not as many Americans recently, so you can see that we’re making progress. We are keeping ourselves safe and maintaining the moral high ground. America is still safe, and Iraq is advancing quickly. They’ve gone from the Revolutionary War to the Civil War in only three years! It took the U.S. about 90 years to do that, so you can see… Democracy is coming to Iraq 30 times faster than it did to the U.S.! Success!. The President owes a lot to our military. Without their hard work and sacrifice none of this would have been possible. He knows how to repay them..”

“At least tens of thousands of veterans with non-critical medical issues could suffer delayed or even denied care in coming years to enable President Bush to meet his promise of cutting the deficit in half — if the White House is serious about its proposed budget.

After an increase for next year, the Bush budget would turn current trends on their head. Even though the cost of providing medical care to veterans has been growing by leaps and bounds, White House budget documents assume a cutback in 2008 and further cuts thereafter.”
-AP, February 27, 2006

“..or maybe he doesn’t. You’d think that Fearless Leader was having some issues. I’m sure he’ll be fine though. Dubya knows that The People will support him.”

“The latest CBS News poll finds President Bush's approval rating has fallen to an all-time low of 34 percent, while pessimism about the Iraq war has risen to a new high.”
-CBS, February 27, 2006
