    Iraq - Another Republican Awakens

    July 6, 2007
    Support in G.O.P. for Iraq Policy Erodes Further
    By CARL HULSE

    <WASHINGTON, July 5 � Support among Republicans for President Bush�s Iraq policy eroded further on Thursday as another senior lawmaker, Senator Pete V. Domenici of New Mexico, broke with the White House just as Congressional Democrats prepared to renew their challenge to the war.

    �We cannot continue asking our troops to sacrifice indefinitely while the Iraqi government is not making measurable progress,� said Mr. Domenici, a six-term senator who has been a steadfast supporter of the president.

    Thus Mr. Domenici joined a growing number of Republican voices in opposition to the war just as Senate Democratic leaders are readying plans to put the political and policy focus back on Iraq next week.

    The Democrats intend to use a Pentagon policy measure to force votes on proposals limiting spending on the conflict and setting a timetable for withdrawing most troops by next year � an idea Mr. Bush has already vetoed.

    Mr. Domenici made it clear Thursday that he did not support such measures either, saying, �I�m not calling for an immediate withdrawal from Iraq or a reduction in funding for our troops, but I am calling for a new strategy that will move our troops out of combat operations and on the path to continuing home.�

    Still, within hours after Mr. Domenici spoke to reporters in a conference call, Senator Harry Reid, the Nevada Democrat and majority leader, called on him to join Democrats and like-minded Republicans to bring the war to a close.>

      THE HILLBILLY VASECTOMY



      After their 11th child, an Alabama couple decided that was enough, as they could not afford a larger bed.

      So the husband went to his veterinarian and told him that he and his cousin didn't want to have any more children.

      The doctor told him that there was a procedure called a vasectomy that could fix the problem but that it was expensive. "A less costly alternative," said the doctor, "is to go home, get a cherry bomb, (fireworks are legal in Alabama) light it, put it in a beer can, then hold the can up to your ear and count to 10."

      The Alabamian said to the doctor, "I may not be the smartest
      tool in the shed, but I don't see how putting a cherry bomb in a beer can next to my ear is going to help me."

      "Trust me," said the doctor.

      So the man went home, lit a cherry bomb and put it in a beer can. He held the can up to his ear and began to count!

      "1"

      "2"

      "3"

      "4"

      "5"

      (you'll love this...)

      At which point he paused, placed the beer can between his legs and continued counting on his other hand.



      This procedure also works in Tennessee, Kentucky, Louisiana, Arkansas, Mississippi, Missouri, Florida, West Virginia and Washington DC.

      ROTFL
      the DUCK

    • Yo yutz with all the great laughs and having fun with all those names. The wife thinks your a real jerk, and when I told her your age, she went... yuck... and just laughed. So I told her that you were not a real funny guy, and not exactly one to be admired. Then I told her that you made a mistake and found out the hooker was your mom in room number 1, and your daughter in room number 2. My wife chuckled at that because she felt like she was getting even. Then she just rolled over and went to sleep. None of it seemed very amusing to her either. This exchange has gone from bad to worse since you returned. How about just addressing the old man in the must dark room and his counterpart the loiya... who's been on my IGNORant list for eeons. Funny... I can see from a few other's that I haven't missed anything from that nozzle either. Whoever that was that made the famous comment about getting rid of all the lawyers was one of the smartest people that ever lived! Who's NEXT?

    • Sorry about that Dog. Thought I was just note 'n the obvious. Guess I can find more positive aspects for Sorry Arse. I certainly didnt mean no disprespect for the little woman.

    • Alph,

      There's a deppres'n note to your post. Caint we lft it up a...l'il? And don be a put'n his wife, down, she don no any betr!

    • Dog.. I think you are on to something. Untreated clap would explain Dummy's rabid posts, the fact that he rants most and a good part of what he rants about is others' rants. I have no doubt that he is married and that his wife tolerates the sucker. He is hard working, nasty bastard at best, but such usually earn enuf to pay a bit more than the bills and she, like he, 'aint gettin any younger.' Of course if she ever tasted a man such as yourself, it would be like sunshine compared to his pit iful self congratulatory lump he calls his life. Hell his life is so empty, he justifies the posting he so dispises, as his entertainment. That is something he says that I beleive. His life is so lacking in entertainment, that he engages in invective exchanges for entertainment. He is truly Sad.

    • J4D,

      No good, tell your "wife" I said g'nite. She'll at least get a few hours of enjoyment.......in her dreams!

    • J4D,

      Sorry,

      That clap must be the explanation for your er.... a "intellectual problem", however, unlike you I use condoms. Thus the clap is not a problem for "the Dog"!

      Your "wife" verified your PIN for me clown. I know it was you and she told me that once I got passed the used part it was ecstacy.

    • xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    • yo dog... on your back and your tongue hanging out. I'm not really married. That's just a cover so people won't know who I am. I'm not married and the worman you mention happens to be a hooker who has the clap. Sorry, but you better go have a pecker checker take a look at whatever you have left. Crabs are YOU.
