A tribute to Condoleeza Rice and George W. Bush who, despite voluminious evidence to the contrary, said, "I don't think anybody could have predicted that these people would take an airplane and slam it into the World Trade Center, take another one and slam it into the Pentagon, that they would try to use an airplane as a missile," adding that "even in retrospect" there was "nothing" to suggest that" and "I don't think anyone anticipated the breach of the levees," respectively.

Michelle Malkin condemned as "ad hominen" the attacks by John Murtha on Karl Rove's girth. Of course, she didn't mention that Rove had called Murtha, a decorated, 37 year Marine veteran, a coward. I'd like to imagine this as Murtha's apology to Karl Rove.

Dear Mr. Rove:

Please accept my humblest apologies for characterizing you as someone who sits on his fat ass in an air-conditioned office while true Americans are dealing with extreme weather, equipment shortages, the constant threat of violence, and the uncertainty of whether some particular Iraqis are friends or foes.

Like most pasty-faced, armchair generals, you have a penchant for letting others do the fighting while you sit back and attack anyone who questions the wisdom of your policies, plans, or lack thereof. I understand you were able to avoid service yourself through the use of student deferments even when you were not in school. Like your boss, you had the chance to fight in a war you supported, yet you let others do the fighting. It must really be something when you, Bush and Cheney get together to reminisce about how you avoided going to Vietnam.

I was proud to serve my country for 37 years in the Marine Corp. I understand that kind of committment to country means nothing to someone whose sole committment is to a political party, regardless of the dire consequences to the nation. Marines are known to be tough and known to talk tough. We have little use for fools who are all talk.

You want to talk about "cutting and running" when the going gets tough. How in the hell would you know since you never been in the military and faced with life and death. Why don't you go to Iraq. I don't mean secretly, in the dead of night, unannounced. Tell em you're coming. Don't spend any time in the Green Zone. Get out there and observe the "progress we're making" first hand. Don't wear any body armor either, that's for cowards who would cut and run.

Again, my sincere apologies,

John Murtha

Turk's Other Thoughts:

So what's the big deal about North Korea testing a missile with a range that might reach the west coast? Don't we have a functioning missile defense shield commonly referred to as "Star Wars?" If not, where's that 43 billion dollars?
