I was watching Oprah today (on Tivo...broadcast on Friday) Bill O'Reilly was on the show and she was asking him about what he thought on things and the like. She was very soft and nice. He was his usual gruff and sometimes outspoken self. Wink

Anyways, about 50 minutes into the program (remember...I have Tivo...it tells me these things) when she was letting the audience ask him questions some lady with a religious zealot's furver started talking about how we were so evil for killing women and children in Iraq. The one statement she made that just really bowled me over though was this one.

"There are no bad guys in Iraq. There are bad guys in Washington D.C."

Now I'm not going to defend or attack our presence there right now. I just wanted to show this statement. "There are no bad guys in Iraq." And she thinks WE are the ones killing women and children in Iraq.

I guess the terrorists setting off bombs in markets and roadsides aren't bad guys.

I guess the guys rounding up other muslims and killing them because they don't agree with their version of the Muslim religion aren't bad.

I guess the guys that get their jollies...

No...no. I really don't need to go on.

"There are no bad guys in Iraq."

Consider this the next time someone tells you how evil and corrupt our nation is. Ask them what they think of the people in Iraq. Ask them what they think of the people killing our soldiers and the Iraq people.

Because if they think "there are no bad guys in Iraq"...

Well.

I for one will do the same thing that O'Reilly did when I hear that. I'll turn away, rub my face, and just ignore them.

Maybe they are just drinking too much Cool Aid.

And you know what scares the living dickens out of me? In just over one week, that lady is probably going to vote somewhere. I mean, she has enough brain cells to SOMEHOW find where Oprah broadcasts. I'm terrified that she might have enough to find where she is supposed to vote and maybe even enough to figure out how to use the machines.

And you know what scares me even more? She isn't the only one who thinks that. She isn't the only one who will probably vote in just over a week with THAT being the basis of her understanding of foreign affairs.

Remember that when you go to vote in just over a week. Remember that there are people who think that.

"There are no bad guys in Iraq."
