One more pure powder puff performance from Couric. Not one question challenging any of Hillary's views, quoting from Bush administration supporters or raising the blatantly political motivation of Hillary's trip.

And not to be too unkind to the junior Senator from NY. Well, OK, to be very unkind but frank, she seemed to be sporting a Nixonesque 5 o'clock shadow in the chin area. Might just have been the lighting, but not a good look. Oh, and as far as I could see, Hillary seemed to be wearing the black version of Ol' Crusty.

Ah, it's moving forward now, can't you tell Mz. Clinton?

Couric, representing NBC:
"We (at NBC) all hope and pray that Saddam escaped harm, and hopefully fled to Syria."

Interesting attempt at damage control. And I see both NBC and CNN are aiding and abetting. But Hilliary can't take back what she said to the troops.

Ewwww. She wore that thing all weekend while she was abroad. That thing must have some sand somewhere in there, 'cause she's been such an irritant.

But the most unprepossessing Reed had clearly been carefully chosen for the trip as someone who would not possibly upstage Hillary, and went largely ignored in the interview.

I had to laugh watching him as he stood by her side looking totally impotent. He should have just closed his eyes because he was asleep.

"What we're doing now is not an effective strategy. We need to get the UN involved."

Then it was back to smarmy troop-praising: "I can't say enough positively about what our military is doing on the ground."

If I were a soldier, I would surmise from this obsessive push to get the UN involved that Hillary Clinton and her cronies don't think I and my fellow U.S. soldiers can handle the job. What a put-down.

The Perky One just couldn't lead with a decent interview question and had to throw in that "how bad is Iraq" jab. It was like a car wreck you can't turn away from. The vile that spews from that mouth. Against Katie, Shrillary is actually quite pleasant.

From the Drudge-linked coverage of her 'tour':

"We have to exert all of our efforts militarily, but the outcome (in Iraq) is not assured," she said…Clinton said it is still an open question whether the Bush administration can make the transition in Iraq from a war zone to an independent, representative government. In an interview with the Associated Press, she called for United Nations assistance in the process…The morale of the troops, she said, "is very high," but she said the military personnel with whom she spoke wanted to know "how the people at home feel about what we are doing."…"Americans are wholeheartedly proud of what you are doing,' " Clinton said she replied, "but there are many questions at home about the (Bush) administration's policies. "

Very nice of the hissing witch. Go over, praise the troops, and at the same time whisper some poison about a possible quagmire and confused leadership. In the linked article, notice that she also calls for increasing the military's size by 10,000 troops. Where was that sentiment when they carved up the military during her administration?

It is also interesting (and Republicans better take heed) that Hillary and Reed are taking the tack of calling for speeding up delivery of Humvees with more armor and more body armor for the troops. The Humvees are in the pipeline somewhere, but the beast does the expedient thing of calling for 'speeding up' delivery. It would be interesting to discover if she, in fact, has voted for the kinds of spending bills that would have allowed such changes and funding. I kind'a doubt it.

BEWARE OF THIS TACTIC: There is NO real concern for troops when a politician, who despises the American idea of the citizen soldier, hates the organizations and traditions which they serve, spits on their codes and sense of patriotism, criticizes their missions, leadership and the country which they serve and, yet, strives to provide the finest in Band-Aids with which to bind their wounds.

There is also a lesson in this for many on the right side of the aisle. The RAT Wellstone made a career out of 'caring' for veterans by adding a little pork to all kinds of bills to help secure the VA, VFW and American Legion votes. This tour by the beast is further evidence that the RAT's have patented the 'caring' for the troops while hating the military angle. Lackadaisical Republicans and pro-military conservatives better be aware of that strategy and do some heavy lifting for the troops on their own.

since November was the bloodiest month since "so-called" major operations were declared over in May

It seems the talkingpointsmemokeywordoftheday is bloodiest. I listened a few moments to Wolfe on CNN yesterday and he used variations of it 4 or 5 times within 2 minutes.

Point of reason and comparison: Iraq is roughly the size of California. How many die in California each month? How many die atrocious deaths due to murder or accident? ...But, this is the only point the LibDems seem to have left to harp on.

We need 'the legitimacy of the UN' to move forward...

Legitimacy of the United Nations? Legitimacy from that place simply boggles the mind! Mrs. Clinton, were she able, would sell our Sovereignty, our Republic, our freedoms to the United Nations – as long a Bill were made Secretary General that is.............she had the nerve to sit among some of our finest wearing their uniforms of the American military and propose this idea. I am surprised she didn’t show Kofi’s blue helmets of the UN and say these are the proper colors not your ‘drab’ camouflage colors. She would pull the plug on the military in a heart beat, reducing these proud warriors to policing America and any other upstart country that tried to be free. Mrs. Clinton wants to establish The Third Way as her way leaving the US Constitution, law and the Republic in the trash bin of history.

Let 'perky katie' hear from you this morning.

Are you the author of this article? If so you have a gift I hope you are not wasting.

"But then, Hillary solemnly opined that we "don't have enough of the right mix of troops" in Iraq. Obviously those years of carefully choosing the right troops to serve hors d'oeuvres at White House receptions has made her quite the expert. "It's clear we need more MPs, intelligence and civil affairs troops."

"What we're doing now is not an effective strategy. We need to get the UN involved."

This section, right here, really gets the stomach acids moving first thing in the morning. This is very good word smithing. I'm sitting here in the CTZ willing the hands on the clock to move so I can call my Senator in D.C. and ask for charges of sedition to be brought against this besotted caricature of Pinochio (sp?).

Sorry, but for some reason, Bill, Hill, and Gore have always reminded me of wooden dummies. I guess it's because in the case of all three, their inadequate attempts at presenting to the public the impression of decent human beings has always seemed so very exaggerated and unnatural.

This is intriguing. Hillary has something up her sleeve and I don't think it is all about running for President. In watching this witch perform for many years now, it seems that every time she goes on the attack it is to deflect attention from breaking news about her or Bill. I think she knows there is going to be a campaing finance scandal around the bend and she can say that they are investigating her only because she has been so anti-Bush. We'll see.

You and Laura Ingraham must be on the same wave length.

She is going over the same topic just as if she was reading your comments.

Or is that really you?
