But by all means continue to indulge your big snitfest and refuse to vote for Obama

Charles Black is a very bad man.

First of all, he works for BKSH and Associates, one of the most powerful lobbying firms in the country.

Among BKSH and Associates’ charming clients are Blackwater, and the group that made Blackwater possible, the Iraqi National Congress.

If you’re not familiar with the INC, don’t be fooled by the name. There was nothing national about it. And it wasn’t a congress.

The group was basically a front for Ahmad Chalabi and his little dog and pony show about Iraq’s fictional WMD and non-existent ties between Hussein and Bin Laden. BushCo claimed before the world that Chalabi’s intel was good. It wasn’t. After the invasion, BushCo tried to force Chalabi upon the Iraqi people as their leader. They said “who the fuck is this ass clown?”

And who was the man that opened all the doors in DC for Chalabi?

Charles Black.

Charles Black is, as I intimated previously, a man without scruples.

Where does Charles Black work now, you may wonder?

He’s a top official in the John McCain campaign for president.

And this is no mere coincidence. Because Chalabi and McCain go way back. Chalabi supported McCain in 2000. McCain had attempted to persuade the Clinton administration to fund Chalabi. McCain once called Chalabi “a patriot who has the best interests of his country at heart.”

Yeah, no doubt the hundreds of thousands of Iraqi dead would back McCain up on the whole Chalabi = patriot statement, too.

So make no mistake, people, about our commitment to Iraq if McCain gets in the White House.

The war is creating thousands of broken men and women, both physically and mentally. It is sucking the life out of our country!

America should require a national referendum in Iraq to the question, "Should America stay." Then follow the results.

Why do you hate our American empire so much?

That McCain quote about Chalabi should be repeated ad nauseam throughout the campaign.

I really don't have anything intelligent to add so I'll just say I love the phrase "ass clown"

Peace, love and good happiness stuff.

I believe “who the fuck is this ass clown?” was the Iraqi papers first headline after the invasion.

I like what McCAin said today
...bringing home the troops was not what was important..it's the casualties...we have troops all over the world....

what is that suppose to mean
And.... did he consider no troops in Iraq equals no casualties in Iraq

Grant Miller said...

I was going to repeat cheer34's comment or something similar to it.

i don't see how anyone can think Mccain will be good for anything...

Charles Black? Charles Black-Hearted maybe.

I would like a formal written, and noterized, apology from everyone who voted for Bushco, and the shit-storm his cronies have created.

Stupid Ass Clowns.
