It's a Civil War, Stupid

Finally NBC and its cable cohort, MSNBC, are calling a spade a spade. That nebulous violence that has gripped Iraq since shortly after the US invasion is now, in the NBC lexicon, a civil war.

The White House and its thinning ranks of apologist can go on calling it whatever they want in that Bizarro-world alternate universe they live in. The rest of the world knows -- and has known for a long time -- that it is, by any rational definition of the term, a civil war.

But that's the same knuckledragging mentality that continues to insist that the American Civil War was not a civil war, either: they insist on calling it "The War Between the States" (when the diehards in the south aren't calling it privately the War of Yankee Aggression).

I guess they just can't help it. Stupidity is genetic.

"Hey, don't blame me," Baby Doc says. "I'ts Al Qaeda's fault. Yeah, that's it. Al Qaeda. Heh heh heh..."

I heard that Al Qaeda excuse on the radio to day and almost blew a fuse!

Al Qaeda would be dead now if we had followed the invasion plan of Afgahnistan, but no he had to put Rummy in charge and we lost our enemy!

Can we just tar and feather bushy now?
