Editorial: Magical August


Get out the gladiolus and the poppies! That magical month of August will be here. Not soon or shortly but it will arrive. And how magical it will be!

"Combat" troops will leave Iraq, over 40,000 of them! And the Gulf Disaster will no longer include spewing oil!

Those are the claims anyway.

From those stupid enough to accept them as "good" deals.

In the real world, a lot of death and destruction will take place between now and the end of August. In the real world, Barack's yet again playing kick the can.

As Hillary Is 44 notes, not a lot of lefties living in the real world these days. Instead, they work overtime to ignore the Gulf Disaster and the Iraq War.

Admitting that neither has been solved (or ceased) by Barack would be admitting their Christ-child is not, in fact, the Messiah.

Beware of false prophets, many have warned but few have added the necessary end to that sentence: "and the fools who believe them."

August should prove most magical. The same way that Barack's closing of Guantanamo did, right?

And point out that Guantanamo remains open six months after Barack's promised deadline for closing it and be told you're hung up on details. Really? Like 4405? That's the number of US service members killed in the Iraq War. Or one-and-a-half million? That's the number of Iraqis killed in the Iraq War. 1.7 million gallons? That's how much oil may be spewing into the Gulf daily.
