Holy Crap: They Knew in '99 an Iraq Invasion Would Fail

A Wind Is Rising

The sleaze of the GOP — and the Religious Right and MSM that enable them — is an ever-opening flower.

What can we do at this point but stare in awe, like Grant Williams at the end of The Incredible Shrinking Man, beholding the vastness of it all?

It's not nice to brag, but I once got an A+ in Typing, back when typing was for typewriters. I simply cannot, however, write about this stuff as fast as it whizzes by. Read below the fold...
