John McCain’s friends

i-580723281316dbddc37dd274421e30bf-icasfeb07.jpgBruce Chapman writes about “encouraging signs in Baghdad” at the DI’s blog:

The days you do not hear on the news of some new killing of American troops in Baghdad is a day when the news really should announce: “No Americans Were Killed in Baghdad Today” or even “In Iraq Today.”

That’s right. In addition to its advocacy for creationism, the DI also has fingers in other pots on the far right wing of the political spectrum, including the quagmire in Iraq. John McCain dedicated his DI sponsored speech to Iraq and other foreign policy. And all they can think of to say about the bloody disaster that McCain and his friends have produced is that there are a few days when American soldiers don’t die there.

Given the trends in fatalities shown above, which headline is more informative: “Troops still dying in Iraq” or “No US troops died in Iraq today”?

Wishing doesn’t make it so, Bruce. Not in Iraq, and not in science.

    I guess at least we’re finally seeing what the real-world applications of the Theory of Intelligent Design are?

    I guess the “D” in DI does stand for “Dumb”!

    I have difficulty in believing this is not a parody.

    I know conservatives can be stupid, but I can’t imagine any primate is this stupid.

    Does a person really exist that thinks making “No Amercians killed in Iraq today” a major headline a few days a week would improve the nation’s outlook on the war?

    Hey, the local news anchor person didn’t lead off with “No Americans killed in Iraq today” — I wonder what that means? You know, I don’t think he said that yesterday either. I wonder what happens on the 2-7 days per week that the anchor person doesn’t say that…

    Laura Bush: “[M]any parts of Iraq are stable now. But, of course, what we see on television is the one bombing a day that discourages everybody.”
