Jesus, I hate to care about politics. Only a couple hours over gasping at the 500 Billion we’ve spent on the Iraq war, I go pick up a copy of USA Today (for the crossword and the Gossip Girl article), and I see that we’re estimating that this morass will cost us 1.9 trillion more in the next decade. Criminee! Is the whole Middle East even worth that much money? Was George Lucas stupid enough to make a Howard the Duck II? Is Halliburton hiring?
