As the election approaches insanity in the media multiplies. Our economic problems were caused by the Iraq war. The more unemployment the better. Sadam was becoming more moderate. Obama and the MSM have amnesia about Obama's opposition to the surge in Iraq. A long time serving member of Congress cannot figure out for herself that it is unethical for her to give tens of thousands of taxpayer dollars to her grandkids: unless we tell her as each dollar is handed over it is unfair for us to expect basic decency from her.
