Uniting the Party

Posted by Ryan on June 1, 2008

It looks like even though She Who Must Not Be Named won Puerto Rico, Obama’s on the verge of clinching the whole thing.  Here’s how a SWMNBN supporter is reacting to this development:

She Who Must Not Be Named Wins Puerto Rico Primary

Posted by Mike on June 1, 2008

Add Puerto Rico to the growing list of Democrat constituencies to fact express buyers’ remorse over the nomination of Barack Obama. Earlier today, She Who Must Not Be Named defeated the Empty Suit on the island despite the fact that Obama is the presumptive Democrat nominee. Luckily for Obama, it appears that he may at least do better than he did in West Virginia. At the moment, he is only trailing SWMNBN by the narrow margin of 34 points. Maybe the Democrats can unite their party after all.

US Deaths in Iraq at All-Time Low

Posted by Ryan on June 1, 2008

As the headline indicates, May 2008 saw the lowest monthly death toll for US troops in Iraq since March 2003 when the war began.  Nineteen soldiers lost their lives last month.  We hadn’t seen numbers that low since 21 soldiers died in the month of February 2004.  This is a testament to the successes we’ve been seeing over the last year as the enemy gets weaker, the Iraqi Military gets stronger, and our role slowly changes from security to maintenance and rebuilding efforts.

Conditions on the ground are also improving such that Australia is safely removing their last 500 troops from Iraq and the British footprint around Basra has been seriously reduced. 

Our CIA indicated that al Qaeda in Iraq is at its weakest point since they became our primary enemy in Iraq, so much so that the bounty on AQI’s leader was reduced last month down to $100,000!  International al Qaeda itself is facing a crisis since apparently more and more jihadist women want the privilege of blowing themselves up!  Apparently the male jihadists just aren’t cutting it lately.

If things keep going in this direction, the Fall election may have quite a different complexion.
