Tuesday, October 14, 2003 Truly-Ungifted-Individual-of-the-Day Award Goes To . . . Rep. George Nethercutt!

Congratulations to Rep. George Nethercutt (R-WA) for snagging today's prize for his disgusting comments in support of the continuing Iraq debacle. The truly ungifted Nethercutt announced to an audience at the University of Washington that "the story of what we've done in the postwar period is remarkable, it is a better and more important story than losing a couple of soldiers every day." Now, unless I missed the memo on the desert oasis that is now Baghdad after the U.S. invasion, I'd say the pro-war Idiots are scampering all over the nation trying to change perceptions. While I've heard plenty about the dead Americans, what about the thousands of wounded soldiers? I'm glad the real nature of government has been revealed in Nethercutt's statement: the politicians are willing to send young soldiers to slaughter in order to further their political goals.
