Why is this man smiling?

"That Sheehan woman has gone back to California for a while. Now if the rest of her friends would go home, I could have some peace and quiet, and just get on with my life."

Original photo caption: "President Bush smiles as he arrives at Caterpiller's Aurora facility in Montgomery, Ill., Wednesday, Aug. 10, 2005. With anti-war protesters continuing their vigil outside U.S. President Bush's ranch, the president began a five-day push Saturday, Aug. 20, 2005, to tell the U.S. why he thinks U.S. troops must continue the fight in Iraq."

To bring out the worst in someone, the worst already has to be in there somewhere

Who in the hell are these people? Where do they come from? How can they be wearing the same uniform I wore, the same uniform my father and grandfather wore? It is beyond belief. Or should have been....

Reading this article literally brought tears of fury to my eyes.

I don't see this as doing much for Shrub's "Democracy on the march" ad campaign. It is just thuggery and murder, pure and simple, encouraged from the middle and condoned from the top. If we are supposed to have the moral high ground, to be better than the "terrorists," these criminals are doing us more damage than roadside bombs ever will.

And, if Shrub's crony Alberto G ("torture is OK if you call it something else" memo author) is ever nominated to the SCOTUS, all hell better break loose.
