    Recently, Iranian Prexy Mahmoud Ahmadipwad was quoted on his reactions to this week’s Annapolis Mid-East peace conference. Some of his remarks included:

    “The U.S.-hosted Mideast peace conference was a ‘failure’ and that Israel is doomed to ‘collapse,’ lashing out at the Annapolis meeting that is widely seen as isolating Iran.”

    “‘It is impossible that the Zionist regime will survive. Collapse is in the nature of this regime because it has been created on aggression, lying, oppression and crime,'” Ahmadinejad said after a Cabinet meeting, according to state-run television.”

    “‘Soon, even the most politically doltish individuals will understand that this conference was a failure from the beginning,'” he said in comments reported by the official IRNA news agency.”

    “‘Many such meetings have been held but have failed,’ he said. ‘If decision is made about Palestine, representatives of the elected Palestinian government and resistance should be there and the rights of the Palestinian people—self-determination, the right of voting and return of refugees—must be recognized,’ he said.”

    “Ahmadinejad has raised controversy in the West with past predictions of Israel’s eventual destruction, including a comment saying it should be ‘wiped off’ or ‘disappear’ from the map—and even critics at home said his inflammatory speeches were needlessly provoking the West against Iran. ”

    What fascinated me about Ahmahitlerwannabe’s comments were how much the tone and nature of them matched a lot of HA Happy Hooligan spew. Whether about the Bush Administration, local politics or whatever, I’m left to wonder whether many of the Hooligang and Ahmaonemanadmirationsociety didn’t but what attend the same schools or something. Could it be?

    Really curious, however, that Rabbit and Ahmaneverwearawellfittingsuit sound suspiciously similar in their rhetoric and have never been seen together. Is Rabbit Bruce Wayne to AhmagonnagetmyheadhandedtomeifIkeepthiscrapup’s Butt Man?

    It’s now up to Rabbit to establish his bona fides by coming clean as to his true ID and whereabouts at times and places at issue.

    BTW…Keystone State (Goldy knows) Congressman John Murtha – Nancy Pelosi’s “Hey Boy” – just returned from a Turkey Day trip to Iraq to pronounce the troop surge as “working.”

    How many of you still are in denial? Perhaps a fist-full of Prozac might do you in…er…assist you in overcoming your depression over recent Iraq successes. I know how it is to exult in losses since I cheer every Sonic defeat as a step further in getting them out of town and into the Oakie cow pasture that is their due.

    Times are tough all over…aren’t they?

    The DoD is reporting a new death previously unreported by CENTCOM. Marine Corporal Allen Roberts died in a vehicle accident near Al Asad, Iraq on Wednesday, November 28th. No other details were released.

    The DoD is reporting a new death previously unreported by CENTCOM. Sgt. 1st Class John J. Tobiason died in an undisclosed incident that is currently under investigation on Wednesday, November 28th. The military has released no further details on his death. According to the Hays Daily News his sister said he had stepped outside of a tent and that shots were fired. She said expected a final report on his death to be issued in a day or two.

    The Greenwich Times is reporting the death of a soldier previously unreported by CENTCOM. U.S. Army Ranger Gabrielle Costello died in action in Iraq on Sunday, November 25th.

    The Danish Ministry of Defense is reporting the deaths of two Danish ISAF soldiers in a hostile fire attack in the Upper Gereshk Valley, Helmand Province, Afghanistan on Thursday, November 29th. No other details were released.

    Now with news of this “success”, can our troops come home from the meat grinder and can my kids and grand kids start paying off this 2 trillion dollar plus disaster?

    Did you know GWB inherited 39.2 million without insurance when he became president? I wonder why the president over the “greatest economy” (per the liberals) didn’t fix this?

    Of the 2.2 million who lost their health insurance in 2001, 1.1 million lost their insurance after 9/11. 1.4 million more lost it in 2002 due to the economy hit of 9/11.

    Of course not, the liberal MSM didn’t want to show you the census data. Look it up!

    Facts are the GWB created the largest budget deficit in history and that Clinton turned around the budget deficits of Reagan and had a budget surplus.

    Tax cuts for the rich (who don’t need them – and they haven’t stimulated the economy!) and the worthless (unprovoked) war in Iraq have bankrupted us. Not to mention the loss of worldwide respect for lying about WMDs and the “mushroom” cloud.

    Facts are that the average workers real wages have gone down over the last 6 years. Our trade deficit is higher than eve and our dependence on foriegn oil is greater than it has ever been. The dollar is at an all time low and mortgage foreclosures are at an all time high.

    Bush and the Republican congress have been an economic disaster. The rampant corruption, the ineptness and incompetentance of the Bush administration (and unqualified political hacks in Justice and in Iraq) have screwed us up in a myriad of ways. Just look who they sent to Iraq under Bremer and we can readily see how we actually promoted the insurgency by oulawing the army, testing out right-wing philosophy and not hiring Iraqis to actually work to rebuild their own country. No- katrina was symptomatic of inept leadership at the top that has caused the problems in the FDA, chinese imports, Iraq and justice. Incompetence and corruption – those are the hallmarks and legacies of this adminstration (and the awful debt the democrats will have to fix, once again).

    Not to mention the supposed “greatest health care in the world” – what a joke!

    Try not to distract with meaningless statistics when the real economics are in front of your face.

    1 Funny thing, Piper….a lot of the assertions you’re lambasting Amah-da-whogivesashit for saying were echoed by none other than Ehud Olmert. Basically he stated that without a separate Palestinian state, the assimilation of all the Palestinian Arabs into Israel (which anyone with two brain cells to rub together views as inevitable) will give them a voting majority. Then you can kiss our favored little Zionist state goodbye.

    It’s 1:29 PM, Friday. Do you know where your Rabbit turds are?

    25 hours and three minutes ago Brian Z said or implied that Roger is Dori Monson in drag. Where are the pellets of outraged and outrageous response? Where has all the feces gone?

    (Brian Z says:

    “Notice the 66% who said “Don’t trust them”? Gee, I wonder why. Sound Transit lowballs the cost, then pro forces lowball the tax bill, and … THEY WONDER WHY VOTERS DON’T TRUST THEM?????????????????????????? ???!”

    Roger Rabbit: thank you for repeating the Dori Monson & Rush Limbaugh mantra. Now, do you have anything useful to add to the discussion? Sure, you believed Kemper Freeman’s cartoon math (natch) but did you bother reading the reams of financial data Sound Transit and the independent Expert Review Panel posted on their websites?

    Of course you didn’t. You’re a goddamn cartoon and shadow of a man.

    The problem Sound Transit made with their phase 2 projects was rooted in the exact opposite condition: to overcompensate for the previous administration’s lowballing, current staff overshot the mark to appease blathering idiot pensioners like you. Big mistake. No government should try to appease dinosaurs and idiots. Fiscal conservatism is a worthy cause in the Age of Bush, but realistic financial models can be achieved without first checking in with every basement dweller, axe-grinder and crank in the entire region.

    Ditch the rabbits and other assorted freaks next time, Sound Transit. They will always complain, because that’s what they do. Get on with the damn light rail and and help us recapture our neighborhoods from crusty old rabbits’ crappy car-caused strip malls!

    More vibrant walkable communities means less anti-social rabbits, less Libertarian crazies, and less Republican psychos. (why do you think they are fighting so damn hard to hold on to the dying status quo) I can’t imagine a better thing than to expedite the eradication of anti-people people.

    “The thing about roads, from the financing perspective, is that the people paying for roads are the same people using roads. No general tax revenues go to roads; all the money comes from taxes, fees, and user charges on motorists. ”

    Roger Rabbit is trying to achieve supreme dinosaur status. If this is the case, old man, than tell us why the the state has identified a $60 billion basic-fix roads backlog? How is it I-5 is turning into a gravel road, and the state DOT can’t identify funding until well into the next decade? How is it we have a bridge which will likely sink before you inbred dinos find it within you to actually acknowledge the real costs of road building? And how is it a war-opposing faux progressive like you can’t make the connection between his own addiction to oil and the war he vehemently opposes…made possible by his addiction to oil.

    One thing we can all hope and pray for: the demise of this generation which survives on contradictions and lies. Why don’t you guys just spend your time licking Dori Monson’s feet? Why do we need to listen to the sounds of dying dinosaurs here?

    Is that what you want? To, “…kiss our favored little Zionist state goodbye?”

    If so, how so? Lob a few North Korean-made missles armed with nuclear warheads (I’ve no doubt they’re working on them) into Haifa, Tel Aviv, or Jerusalem? Is that how you would handle those “pesky Zionists?”

    Or pick up on the bogus “right-of-return” canard? Flood Israel with a bunch of Palestinians to essentiall eviscerate it from within? Sound like a plan to you?

    I think Ahmawantingtoseealotofdeadjews lusts in his heart to crush, destroy, eradicate, blot out, and generally kill Israel anyway he can. If hundreds of thousands of Jews die in the process, it’s no sweat off his beard.

    All the apologists and nay-sayers can pratter on all they wish about how he’s not really in charge (In Iran, he wouldn’t say squat without the approval of the Ayatollahs) or that’s not what he really means (Oh? What’s wrong with taking him at face value?) or that Iran hasn’t the capability (That a gamble anyone wishes to make?) or whatever.

    About the only ones in the world not seriously concerned about Iran and Ahmagonnakillyouifican is the American left, and that’s not because the threat isn’t real; Karl Rove is the real great Satan, and the destruction of Bush is paramount. Forrest…trees?

    22 I didn’t say a damned thing about what I want. It’s what the Prime Minister of the state of Isreal stated he thinks is going to happen sooner of later, whether he or you or I or the Iranians or Jane Whats-Her-Name’s dog’s flea contingent or the Great Golden Pumpkin wants it to or not. Even some of the most conservative Israeli Jews (you know, the folks who actually live there) know the present situation isn’t sustainable. The Palestinian “homeland” is so chopped up that maintaining a viable state within its boundaries doesn’t make any sense. Either the two factions are going to have to learn to get along up close and personal with each other, or they’ll just keep killing one another until the few of whichever group is left gets to claim the hollowest of victories.
