As a frequent visitor to “The Democratic Underground“, I created a “tagline” in November of 2005 that reads beneath everything I post:

!!! 6500+ Americans DEAD !!!
(3,000 on 9/11. 1,900 in Iraq. 1,600 in Katrina.)
National debt: $8.18 Trillion and counting.
Gas $3.00 a gallon.
Osama bin Laden still on the loose.
* MISSION ACCOMPLISHED *

From time-to-time, I’d update the tag as particular “thresholds” were passed. Today, the number of American soldiers killed in Iraq hit the 3,400 mark, pushing the total number of dead Americans as a direct result of this Administration’s incompetence to 8,000!

Sometimes, Republicans just need things spelled out for them, which is what my tag was intended to do. Do you think that when Republicans voted for George Bush, they ever fathomed that 8,000 Americans would die as a result, entire cities would be lost (“New Orleans”, towns in Mississippi and now Kansas), North Korea would be testing nuclear weapons, Iran would be threatening to build nukes, and our soldiers would be engaged in another Vietnam-style war on its fifth year with no exit strategy?

If this were Bill Clinton… holy hell!
