The Thursday Skinny

Who would be so mean and nasty as to suggest that the numbers of deaths in Iraq are being purposely underestimated? Of course, the big bad United Nations just wants to make Dubya look bad.

Speaking of making Dubya look bad, the Senate is voting today on a non-binding resolution to bring the troops home - as part the latest emergency mis-spending bill to fund the surge. We do know Dubya is going to veto the bill. Thankfully, the spinach and sugar subsidies were removed.

Paul Wolfowitz wants more time to avoid being summarily shit-canned from the World Bank. He recently hired noted crisis lawyer Robert Bennett. Bennett previously represented Bill Clinton in his battle against Penthouse Model Paula Jones.

John McCain formerly announced his candidacy today up in New Hampshire. 200 people showed up for the event. Okay, it was raining, but are the odds of him winning the reep nomination? Maybe two percent? 200 people. Thats just sad.

Congressman Rick Renzi, crook, reep, Arizona, is going down. Did I mention he's a crook? I hope its a slow, slow fall for Renzi; like a slow-mo train wreck. Dems always face an uphill battle in Arizona, but I think the dems can win this state in 2008. At the very least, the reeps will have to spend big bucks to defend the state.

The military, accepting some blame for making Pat Tillman and Jessica Leach into Captain America and Wonder Woman, took a shot at the media, too. That's like blaming the pit bull after you sicced him on the mailman. Nice way to deflect attention. I want to know when Rummy knew. Oh he knew. He knew.

Finally, Riverbend finally has a new post up. As always, its a must-read.

Great site, Mr. West. I want to thank you for commenting on my site although I've been quite remiss lately.

On the subject of underestimating casualties, I've read that they don't count car bombs. Can that be true ?

Hi Jim,

Thanks for the post (by the way, can you provide a link back to your site; I can't get there from your post here).

I thought I heard about the car bomb thing, too. Anyone with a link on that?
