Can you believe he said this?

"We ought to be beating our chests every day. We ought to look in a mirror and get proud and stick out our chests and suck in our bellies and say: 'Damn, we're Americans!'," Jay Garner told reporters, saying that Iraq's oil fields and other infrastructure survived the war almost intact.

And it just validates Norman Mailer's opinion:

The question posed at curtain-rise has not been answered. Why did we go to war? If no real weapons of mass destruction are found, the question will keen in pitch.
I don't think so . . . I don't think anyone really cares anymore they are just glad it's "over" and now they can get back to their daily lives . . .

I heard that on the Daily Show with Jon Stewart last night and I just assumed they made it up. That is just horrid.

Me too Mrianda W. I just LOVE John Stewart, couldn't make it throught these times without him. I think though that when they actually quote someone it is true, Dh and I were laughing, but with our jaws on the floor ~ I just want to yell over there to the rest of the world ~ we all aren't this big of a**es, really were not.

I agree. Jon Stewart makes this whole shitty situation bearable--not just him, but the whole brilliant show. Everyone on it is brilliant and right on in just about everything. 23.5 hours a day I could cry at what's going on in this world--for half an hour a day I laugh my ass off.
