2 Not to be outdone,
Famed Statesman and Civil Rights Activist Reverend Al Sharpton called the June 25th 2009 death of Michael Jackson "The Damn Biggest Catastrophy of da 20th Century"

3 There are a number of "smart" people out there that think the two world wars were some kind of jobs program with the added benefit of urban renewal in Europe and Asia.

4 You have to understand that she is just trying, the best that she can, to suck up to her handlers.

5 Syria? Darfur? Egypt? Meh. More killed than Iraq, with chemical weapons, and still going. Mass genocide only stopped by that evil President (Bush). And just a short experiment in Islamist governance. But Iraq, which now has more freedoms than the above (excluding South Sudan)... THATS the "most catastrophic war of the 20th century"?!? (and I know she meant 21st century). Deluded, but I guess since Iraq was lead by "Booosh" and not "The One" it must be bad...

7 I have meaning to do it, but maybe someone has a list of "our" congress varmints (both houses) that qualify in the "Guam tipping over"
brilliant thinking dept. You know, like Maxine Waters.
We have Alcee Hastings in Floriduh for one.

8 It was a disaster. But the disaster was its effect on US society.

All of the countries involved should have been flattened with B-52s as an object lesson.

Fuck invading.

Eleanor Holmes Norton: Living proof that the Founding Fathers made the right call when they denied Congressional representation to DC.

10 She has obviously been chugging the "Milk of Amnesia" ...

11 May I point out that this person is not a member of congress? She's allowed to sit in, much like crippled kids are allowed to sit up front at the track meet. She's pathetic and they're not.

12 Reminds me of Kofi Annan...

http://pupista.blogspot.com/2009/10/obama-wins-nobel-peace-prize-as-naacp.html

This little man - a consummate appeaser - was the United Nations Secretary General from 1997 through 2007, and here's what he said in his farewell UN appearance when asked to name the best and worst times during his tenure:

I think the worst moment was the Iraq war which as an Organization we couldnt stop and I really did everything I can to try to see if we could stop it.

Yet by May 2001, nearly TWO YEARS before the Iraq War even began, on his own home continent the Congo Civil War (also called "Africa's World War") had already claimed 2.5 million lives.

The Congo Civil War had already bumped the Iran-Iraq War (with as many as 1.5 million dead) from its infamous spot as number two in overall body count next to the 50 million plus death toll of World War Two.

No, no! Iraq was worse!

Well, give that man a prize!

(Oh wait - they already did...)
