Iraq: File In The "Not News" Folder

We still really like Chuck Hagel. We always have. He's a lot truthier than Senator John McPain.

So it should come as no surprise that he just released a book, titled America: Our Next Chapter. We probably won't buy it or read it, because, as much as we like Chuck Hagel, we don't agree with his politics most of the time. And there's a limit to how many books we can read each year.

But we can't help but agree with the premise of his book, which is that the White House and its occupants, Chimperor von Duncewitz and human impersonator extraordinaire Hatey von GoosenSteppen, bungled the Iraq war. From CNN:
Hagel said the country needs new leadership and suggests the Iraq war might be remembered as one of the five biggest blunders of all time.


He said the Iraq invasion resulted from "Bush administration arrogance and incompetence." He claims Vice President Cheney and other so-called neoconservatives "cherry-picked intelligence" and used fear to intensify "war sloganeering."
Ya think, Chuck?

In other news, a little girl is dying of cancer and wants her daddy with her. She's only ten years old, and her father is obviously a stupid putz, because he was busted for meth &mdash possession, distribution, sale, consumption, who knows? Couldn't have been a major offense, since he only got five years.

He's due to be released next year anyway, and his wife and daughter are not requesting early release. They just want him home so he can be with his dying daughter. Senator Hagel, won't you please help?

Folks, if any of you are from Senator Hagel's home state, could you give him a call and ask him if he can help this poor kid out? It's not her fault her father's a stupid putz. And being a stupid putz shouldn't mean your kid has to die still missing you. Surely the prison warden (in whose discretion the decision remains) can let the man go see his little girl?

KETV has the details.

I can't comprehend people who still defend Bush and his fake terror war. He simply refuses to admit he was wrong, no matter the cost.
