McCain,Graham and Lieberman—the Three Stooges of Foreign Policy.

These clowns are the only ones who don’t know that one more day in Afghanistan is one day too many.Afghanistan was lost when Zippy became President.

Get the hell out now, before we lose any more of our sons and daughters-—foe nothing.

And the Three Stooges can go -—never mined.
