Counting Dead Bodies

While the military says they don't track these numbers, they keep growing. Bodies dead, don't become alive again. Check out the numbers at the following web locations:

US Military Dead and Wounded

Iraqi People Killed and Wounded

A list of names of Iraqi's Killed

Dear Mr. Misquided and Lying President Bush,

At what time does the cost of doing business in Iraq exceed our nations' capacity to pay back what we owe the country, our citizens, and the population of the world for generating more reasons for terrorists to recruit and sign up more and increasingly zealous perpetrators of the violence you say you are going to protect us from?

It is time for you to exit, Mr. Bush. Get out!

I encourage all who call for the immediate resignation of the current administration please do so as a comment to this posting. AND, DON'T FORGET TO DO YOUR DUTY AND VOTE ON 2 NOVEMBER.

If W wins he'll have to clean up his own mess. This is fundamental child rearing, applied to the fundamentalists. The country will be better for it long-term.

The terrorists aren't going to go away in 4 years. They'll still be there for whomever replaces W.

In 4 years, without regard to who wins this election, the country will be sadder and wiser. Better choices will follow.

There's still the possibility of an ''October surprise,'' like the Pakistani's delivering ObL's head on a pike, that could tip the election.

If doom and gloom is still on the menu, litigation resulting from a close election could end up at SCOTUS like last time. Their One-time, Once decision could come back to haunt them. If anyone needs humility, it's half the Supreme Court.

It's an ill wind that doesn't blow some good.

Halt! Show me your papers.

Americans are in the grip of a monster case of Pre-Election Anxiety Disorder. No one is talking about voter apathy anymore, because the opposite is more likely the case. People care too much. They're losing sleep. They're having bad dreams about unfavorable tracking polls.

PEAD worsens as Election Day approaches and it's a 50-50 country and there's a war going on and people are dying and the talking heads are howling and the polls come firing at your head like fastballs. It's too close to call, too close, too close, we know the whole thing could pivot with the slightest breeze, that nothing is too trivial now, that even the slightest verbal gaffe by a candidate or his wife or one of the daughters could have a butterfly effect on world history. ...
