Iraqian War Idol

During the day yesterday I was listening to the Iraq report. This is where Gen. Petraeus answered questions from Senate Panels about the war. This was very serious stuff. The future of the world is being effected by this war and these leaders were discussing it in detail. As they should. Communication is the foundation of any civilization.

But, I have a problem.

I see funny in everything. I couldn't help but think these hearings looked like American Idol to me. There are three main judges to focus on. One black man (Obama), one white female (Clinton), and one white grumpy man (McCain). I was expecting to see and hear Ryan Seacrest to put his arm around the General and ask him how the panel's comments made him feel.

Then a phone number would go up and America could call in and vote as to whether we stay in Iraq or leave. Of course you would also have the option to text your vote of "stay" or "leave". Standard texting rates will apply.

I'm going to watch again today to see what the results are.

All joking aside, as much as I hate this war, you have to respect a four star general. He was given a crappy war plan designed by Bush and is trying to make it work.

That "grumpy" old man honorably served his country and was a POW in a Commie hell hole for 5 1/2 years.

Show a bit more respect.
