"... their grief is something I feel to my core."

Oh would someone have mercy on the rest of us and tell Redrum Donald to shut the fuck up?

"I am truly saddened by the thought that anyone could have the impression that I, or others here, are doing anything other than working urgently to see that the lives of fighting men and women are protected and are cared for in every way humanly possible," he said.

So ok, this is about YOU then, Donny, and what you're saying is that you're NOT a monster, just incompetent. Great.

Well, that plus some hypocritical Christian pizazz, Donny, MIGHT qualify you to be Chaplain-in-Chief, but it sure as hell doesn't make you pass the test for Secretary of Defense. (Maybe you could be a secretary FOR someone IN defense, you know, go run and get some coffee?)

People are dying and we have to listen to you flapping your gums about how you feel their pain?

Asked whether the criticism had undermined his ability to do his job, he said, "You get up in the morning and you think about what our troops are doing. And I must say, if they can do what they're doing, I can do what I'm doing."

In other words -- they die and you do a tap dance? Because you sure as hell aren't doing the job any better than you were before, i.e., not at all.

He was less upbeat about Iraq, saying that "ultimately," Iraqis would have to protect themselves. "It's their country," he said.

Well, isn't that what a suicide bomber's message is?
"It's OUR country so get the fuck out."

But please, Donny, don't end the press conference without giving us your patented excuse...

Regarding Tuesday's deadly attack on a mess hall at a military base near Mosul in northern Iraq, Rumsfeld said it was "an enormous challenge to provide force protection. (U.S. forces) have to be right 100 percent of the time. An attacker only has to be right occasionally."

Ahh, there you go -- that's the one. So comforting to hear you say it.
Again and again and again.
We know you only make a few mistakes, but they're doozies:

Starting a war in the wrong place without adequate preparation.

Playing politics with the troop numbers and sending in too few of them to get the job done, no matter how hard they try, no matter how much the military tradition of the US is for brave (maybe foolhardy) men and women to go in and fix the mess made by our truly ignorant politicians. (Perhaps they never met fools as incredibly foolish as you and your crew.)

Refusing to listen to General Officers with years of experience, people who know a bit about war and whose knowledge has been bitterly won trying to sort out the politicians' mess in the past, most recently and dramatically in Vietnam.

Being a smartass to troops who see their buddies dying every day.

Refusing to EVER admit you were wrong, but playing that little masturbatory version of a press conference where you ask yourself questions aloud and then answer them. Even for a civilian, jerking off in public is a no-no. (Pee-Wee Herman was sitting by himself in the dark porn theater and they busted his ass.)

Telling wounded, maimed, and mind/life-shattered Reserve and Guard veterans back from Iraq (assuming you ever let them GET back) that as far as medical care from the VA is concerned, they can just go fuck off.

I needn't go on.
If we can't get Monkey Boy out of the White House before he plunders Social Security along with everything else, perhaps we can force him to replace Rummy with a Secty of Defense who can do the job.

That, unfortunately, will actually reflect well on Bush.
(I'm not unpatriotic at all -- quite the opposite. I just figure, for the good of the country, the more bad things that happen to Bush -- voter fraud investigations, nominees dumped for being crooks, etc. -- the fewer bad things he'll be able to do to us.)
