Maybe the Republicans should think about what others are saying:

“President Bush is asking Congress for $80 billion dollars to rebuild Iraq. And when you make out that check, remember there are two L’s in Halliburton. –David Letterman

Your are presuming that Republicans think. Never presume.

I’m just waiting for their campaign where they make out that Wes Clark is a wuss and GW Bush is a real man’s man.

Expect to see President Codpiece ‘landing’ on an aircraft carrier a lot, while Wes Clark will probably be shown holding some flowers or some poetry, or something.

The scary thing will be that people will believe it.

Well, I’d call it the Carter-Reagan-BushI-Clinton Legacy, but one can’t help but think that if, say, we’d been as brutal and no-nonsense as the Russians in Lebannon, instead of pansy ass sissy boys, that we wouldn’t have had 9/11 happen.

But those other 3 are pretty much just tasteless jingoism, at best.

Tough one to call, David. It’s easy to say that in retrospect, but at the time of Osama’s earlier atrociites I can promise you most Americans did not want to go to war over them. Even king of the hawks Newt Gingrich praised Clinton for the actions he took aganst Osama (sending cruise missles his way). It was only after it was too late that most Americans realized just how serious a menace Al Qaeda posed.
