God but you're a pathetic loser. I used to think
you were amusing but I see you're still bashing Bush over
invading Iraq. Don't you get a newspaper in whatever rancid
cave you live in? I mean, hello, there was a wildly successful
election in Iraq and it's all because of George W.
Voting Is Proof
I'll ignore your harsh invective and simply
