FRIDAY KICKBACK QUICKIES
In case you can't read the card:
Looking back, I should've slept around a little more...
I want to thank everyone who made my day yesterday, including: THIRDWAVEDAVE, Brainster, Chris, Aaron, Gayle, Songbird, boy michael, Dana (who survived Katrina), Dodo David, ScottG, DANEgerus, Blue, LoanCat and paul. Seriously, I've never had such a wonderful birthday, not ever.
And if anyone is wondering, but is afraid to ask, I was 56. Still am.
On to the quickies! ...

What is reveals is that what the media think of as their impartiality is in fact rather a bland assumption that they all think the same way. And that's what's revealing about this, that he knew he could send that e-mail to all his chums at ABC, and that they would all agree that Bush makes them puke. … I'm happy that this has come clean, that Bush makes him puke.

8 ACE replies on the subject of “civil war”: [I]s it not our entire counterinsurgency strategy to get Iraqis who believe in the new Iraq to fight Iraqis who want to restore Baathism or impose Taliban-like rule? Does not everyone who wishes us well support the strategy of standing up the Iraqis so we can stand down? And does that not mean getting the Iraqis to fight the civil war themselves?
