Thanks, Republican Party

Today is Tuesday, 19 January 2010.

Last week, an obscure Iraqi government agency announced that some 500 candidates for the upcoming parliamentary election were being disqualified, but only a few names were released (the remainder will apparently be disclosed today). Surprise, surprise: two of the most prominent Sunni opponents of Prime Minister al-Maliki and his henchpersons were given the boot on transparent pretexts.

I’m sure all of the Americans, Brits, Iraqis, etc. slaughtered by W. Bush/Cheney/etc. are pleased they died in the service of this grand “experiment in democracy”.

Or rather, an experiment in replacing a Sunni gangster regime with a Shiite gangster regime.

Thanks, Republican Party.

Friday last, we took our ailing Lyntl Weimaraner to the OSU Veterinary Teaching Hospital for a second consultation with her cardiologist. Though her heart continues to weaken, her quality of life is undiminished, and she is as loving and active as ever.
