    You can't pick who joins your cause. There are evil people who want democrats to win and evil people who want republicans to win, I don't see how it makes a difference. The republican form of government is beneficial to one kind of scheme and the democratic form another.

    You shouldn't judge a party by who supports it, you should judge the the party by who it supports.

    His point was that if Iraq is how the media is portraying it, the terrorists want the Republicans to win. Why not? They're making the terrorists job easier. Yet the opposite is happening.

    That can mean only one of two things.
    1. The situation in Iraq isn't as it's being portrayed by the media.
    2. We're kicking the enemy's collective arses and they want the cut-and-run EMOcrats in.

    Isn't Rush sort of pointing out the obvious?

    Note that I don't listen to his show.

    Ok, what next? Terrorists control the media?

    Since Rush in the media, what does that make him?

    Everyone knows that the libs control the news media.

    Rush isn't news, he's commentary.

    Of course conclusion 1 and 2 don't follow if you don't believe the initial premise that Republicans are making the terrorist's job easier.

    That's effing beautiful, man.

    Smeg, you're the only guy I know who's brave enough to admit he's stupid enough to listen to Rush and take him seriously. Congrats dude.

    Even ignoring the ridiculous suppositions, assumptions and liberties that this commentary takes, it's easily one of the most ridiculous things I've ever read. Let's be reasonable; America not making progress is not a victory for the terrorists, they're not just doing this to thwart America, they have goals of their own. The biggest of these goals is to get America out of the Middle East. America not winning is not the same as the terrorists winning; the terrorists are going to pursue their goals until they're met.

    Stupid stupid stupid

    So . . . why does Rush think the terrorists support the Democrats? He never really said.

    Furthermore, the KKK is more likely to vote for the Republicans than the Democrats. Why do Republicans hate black people?

    And I also don't understand this whole "The evil Democrats don't think we can win". I mean, sure, we can "win" eventually, but the real question is, is it worth the cost?

    For me, the answer is a resounding "No". I initially supported the Iraq war, but I think it's obvious to all of us now (that is, all of us who are at least somewhat rooted in reality) that Iraq was not a threat to us in any way, shape, or form.

    Was it really worth the death of even one US soldier to take out the likes of Saddam? No. And once you realize that, who gives a flying **** whether or not we can "win."

    I said "media", which, according to OED, is "1 pl. of medium 2 (usu. prec. by the) the main means of mass communication (esp. newspapers and broadcasting) regarded collectively".

    So are you telling me he's not in the telly? He sure is one of them eeebil medias according to OED, even if - I sure can agree with this - he has nothing to do with news

    Yeah, come to think of it, I never saw OBL in his videos posing with "VOTE KERRY" pins on his turban.

    I'm torn. I don't know whether to mock Rush and his parrot and give Smeg his daily dose of ego or just ignore it and laugh at outright stupidity of a commentary and those who swallow.

    Dang. I guess I already chose. Stupid cat. I will name you Schrodinger.

    But is the cat alive or dead?

    (besides, just to nitpick, I think the cat-guy was called Schrödinger)

    Mac, you know you can't open the thread to view it without destroying what you're trying to observe. Erm, wait. Why hasn't this thread been destroyed? Stupid thread. Cat. Whatever.

    I'm causing a massive inflation to the :laugh:-emoticon this morning, but I can't help it. My sweetheart is still asleep and I must refrain from lolling - she has to go to work, properly rested, after all - and I must channel my amusement for the appreciated tact or lack of herein presented.

    Thus, :laugh:
