Dear Editor, How odd it was that the Cheney-Bush machine decided to float out such a liberal Democrat idea as literally opening the border to Mexican labor, then follow it up with manned missions to Mars the next day. Did anyone not notice the real news that came out the same day that was delegated to the nether regions of the newspapers, that we are pulling the teams out of Iraq whose job it has been to search for weapons of mass destruction? Conclusion? There never were any, and the cause for war was knowingly amped up to the point of hysteria ... what? Surely you recall that Saddam had missiles that could reach the East Coast and vaporize, say, New York City, or at least Savannah, Ga., or Hilton Head. The ends do not justify the means here. Nor does the inexplicable foot-dragging the Republicans have done in conjunction with the bipartisan investigation into 9/11. Wrapping themselves in the flag amid the rubble of the twin towers is ironic, um, to say the least. Sadly, the Democrats are so busy hacking each other to pieces, it's hard to see them running the country when they can't even run their party. Choice?
