Most Bush supporters have no behavioral standards of any kind and will defend any behavior at all -- no matter how venal or corrupt -- as long as it's engaged in by a fellow Bush supporter.

Secondly, he thinks that math is for liberals, which is why he doesn't do simple arithmetic...
Now then, let's calculate that for every 100,000 in the involved population, like normal (not conservative) statisticians do.
Car accidents: 40
Falling down: 15
Killed in Iraq: 1533
Gotta love how he desecrates the flag, too, eh?

He forgets to maintain plausible deniability.
Hey 'Numskulls,' Better Watch Out
- Globalization would work well if it weren't for all those pesky humans expressing their opinions.
John McCain hired a new advisor to his PAC. His name is Terry Nelson, and he's an unindicted co-conspirator in the Tom DeLay money-laundering scheme.
