Support Our Troops
...by closing their bases.
Obviously Bush doesn't expect our troops to return home anytime soon, because he's closed hundreds of bases nationwide. (Although suprisingly few in Texas and his brother Jeb's Florida)
One of the casualties will be Fort Monmouth, the base near my hometown. This is what happens when your state's senators are Democrats in a Republican congress.
"Yahoo!" exclaimed Joe "D stands for Republican" Lieberman, who saved a base in his home state of Connecticut. "Submarine base New London lives, and I think that it will live forever."
The base closing thing is a perfect example of what's wrong with the Democratic party. Instead of rising up together to fight these base closings (which are hugely unpopular), they only fight for the bases in their individual states. Meanwhile, our country goes weaker because our congress gave hundreds of millions of dollars to build a bridge in Alaska but won't provide that same money for our national defense.
Fort Monmouth may not be the largest of military bases, but closing it will have a big impact on my area. So yeah, I'm pissed off.
How do you think soldiers in Iraq right now feel about the fact that when they get home, they'll have to move because their base was closed?
Way to support the troops, Bush. Bastard.

And Finally, Televangelist Pat Robertson Apologizes For Demanding The Assasination Of A Democratically Elected Central American Leader... Sort Of:
"Wait a minute, I didn't say 'assassination.' I said our Special Forces should 'take him out,' and 'take him out' can be a number of things, including kidnapping."
(For the record, Robertson said previously: "If he thinks we're trying to assassinate him, I think we really ought to go ahead and do it.")
