    Good deal. I wouldn't be callin for Kofi Annan to resign for something his son did either.


    I mean shit, you don't see people trying to pull Bush Sr. out of office when his son was being a douschebag....

    You guys are sure quick to defend Kofi. Basically I can sum up your "argument" for you....

    anything that goes against what President Bush believes is OK by me.

    Great argument!!!

    And if President Bush did as much as Kofi Annan has done for diplomatic relations in the world, I'd think he was all that much better for it.

    You're a douche.

    I didn't say dick about Kofi - I said I liked Powell (which I've said for a while) because he isn't a yes man, and linked an example. The rest of the Bush admin. are yes-men. The only other good one was Ari Fleischer, who resigned because he realized Bush was full of shit.

    So there.

    Nope. Dont care to, either. If a Press Secretary his age resigns at the beginning of a war, something is up. I always watched him on CNN, and I always thought he was having a hard time spitting out some of the things he said, and he confirmed it (to me, anyway) when he resigned.

    Long story short - no, I can't, and dont confuse me with the facts, fukker.

    Powell was a "Yes-Man" on Iraq.. he fought for a while and then gave in..

    Good to see he is standing up this time though, overall he has been a good guy to have around.

    I might hit up margaritas if it is on a friday night.. I wanted to go to Jillians but I was racing my mountain bike sunday morning... no way I was going to make a 9:30 race and not kill myself if I went out drinking the night before.

    Portsmouth is a bit far for drinking but I love that town...

    Yeah, as long as it's the one in Waltham. NH is too far. I may as well just go to Canada!
