Iraq As A Football Game

A good analogy from PHILOSORAPTOR at Daou Report today:
They don't see the half a million dead Iraqis. They don't see the three thousand dead soldiers. They don't see the twenty thousand crippled soldiers, they just see a giant scoreboard in the sky with losing numbers on it and it pisses them off that their lousy team is losing.
My two cents worth:
Somebody is winning. Somebody is grinning.

It just isn't you.

You think the USA is "your team" and Bush is your captain. But Bush is not even on your team.

He's throwing winks to the fat cats in the corporate boxes who know this game is fixed: he's their boy and as far as they are concerned, he is doing a heckuva job.
