I suppose I must comment on the complete and utter capitulation of the Democrats to the Boy King on the matter of Iraq. It's obvious that we do not have, and have not had for some time, a democracy. What the United States citizenry has called for, quite unambiguously, is withdrawal from Iraq, but that's just tough, isn't it?
I'd be a lot madder if I hadn't expected this. I'm sick to death of these people with their little royalty fantasies playing games while people suffer and die every day after every day in a senseless, missionless war.
More than anything I feel a sick disgust and a great sadness at the number of deaths that will occur before we somehow extricate ourselves. It's very hard not to feel hopeless at this point.
I'm afraid we no longer have a republic.
