Open Thread: Irony Deficient edition

     I'm preparing a massive post tomorrow about the tenth anniversary of the invasion of Iraq for the one or two people who care what I write about, anymore. If there's anything you want me to include, now's the time to ask while I'm going on a .jpeg and news source safari.

I've forgotten his name, but the UN rep who was investigating the presence of WMD declared that there weren't any in the month before the war began.

I remember this because the /F/l/y/i/n/g/ /M/o/n/k/e/y/s/ Administration kept churning out "There are too WMDs! There are!" and that was the big hint that the Fix Was In.

If only he would just scribble notes on his hand. Would he have to use a white Sharpie[tm]?

Everyone in the world knew that there were no WMD of any kind in Iraq. The only people that believed the WMD lies told by Bush were the 27% of Americans who believe Reagan should be a saint.

The Iraq and Afghan wars exist for only one reason: transferring wealth to war profiteers.

Wow, Comrade, looks as if your aim is as bad as the Pentagon's. Sure this shouldn't've gone up at the top of the index page?

Good afternoon, JP. I think you pretty much hit the anniversary nail on the head. May I lift the illustration from this post for my blog? Full credit and link, of course.

My economic situation still sucks, so all I can send are good thoughts, but I hope you and the missus have some good luck soon.

Why isn't anyone posting comments where they should be?

Use whatever you want. My URL's on every picture I make, anyway.

Mrs. JP and I will be in the shitter again next month. Still getting snotty emails from snotty hiring managers who keep insisting I'm not qualified to do jobs I've already done and done well.

Yeah, doncha jes LOVE getting emails from 22-year-olds saying either (a) you're unqualified, even though you've been doing it your entire life, or (b) overqualified?

And thank you. Didn't want to grab it without permission.
