Let's reflect for a momentposted by The Vidiot @ 8:14 AM Permalink on the fact that this war and Iraq, a byproduct of the neocon plan to militarily dominate the planet and its resources, has caused the death of well over a half million Iraqi lives.
That's OVER ONE HALF MILLION people who were alive before the US started bombing.
But what shifts the votes of this electorate away from Bush and the GOP? Is it the tanking economy? The military failure in Afghanistan? The creeping police state? The death of the Constitution? Their failed foreign policy with N. Korea? The overt corruption? Or any other of the follies of this administration?
No, none of that. What soured the electorate on this administration is a congressman's diddling with an underage page.
Sort of ironic when you think of it, in light of what they did to Clinton.
