Thanks to The Randi Rhodes Show for the idea for this post:
First Lady Laura Bush said the following in an interview with Larry King regarding the Iraq war:
“Many parts of Iraq are stable now. But, of course, what we see on television is the one bombing a day that discourages everybody.”
GOI: I'm sorry?? One bombing a day?!!! Try 185 a day according to a November 2006 report done by the Brookings Institute.
And "discourages??" A bombing that kills dozens of people is more then "discouraging." Most people are horrified, angry and sick when they hear and see about these bombings. Not simply "discouraged!!!" Discouraging is getting a flat tire!!!
I doubt that family members who lose a loved one in a bombing would describe their reaction as being "discouraged!!!" Wake up sister and get off the Valium or whatever you're taking to give you that spacey, out of touch, glazed over appearance.
