Bury him face down, eight feet deep. Give the bastard a head start on his way to hell.

I remember doing threads about what a turd he was more than ten years ago... back when he was Laura's special guest at the State of the Union speech.

It's funny to go back and re-read those old threads and see all the names of the old forumites who just couldn't handle the truth.

Another pawn on a very sordid chess board. Let me know when the king is dead.

Chalabi was no pawn. Newt Gingrich was a pawn in Chalabis plan.

Chalabi was no pawn.
OK, knight, bishop, maybe even the queen. But he's not the reason Bush invaded Iraq. Or is there a case to be made that he is?

Congress was a pawn, GW was a pawn

Actually, since I don't believe in free will, we're all equally pawns. But I realize that is a minority point of view that doesn't sit well with most people. So in deference to the public clamoring for truth and justice I will paraphrase one of my esteemed forum colleagues and add only that Bush was no pawn.
