As True Now As It Was Prescient Then…


“Milking 9/11″

… five months before invading Iraq. 

1. Dare Rummy show his face.

Rumsfeld, Bush speak at Pentagon 9/11 ceremony  (CNN) 

2.  Incredibly (or not so incredibly), still tying 9/11 to Iraq.

WASHINGTON (AP) – President Bush said Thursday that after the terror attacks of Sept. 11, 2001 fade from memory, history will look back at America’s response and conclude that “we did not tire, we did not falter and we did not fail.”

3.  The C.I.C. Salute, Cheney front-and-center, and more.

White House photo gallery had those pics up pretty fast today.

    If I lived in Washington, I would be seriously irked by having Bush and Cheney preempt the day.

    I wish you would sell or give this design to the DNC to use for the Obama campaign, just put the GOP logo on the shirt instead of B-sh’s name, so they could have bags printed.

    Jeany, that’s an awesome idea but Bag should use it himself. A nice, roomy, sturdy canvas bag with a skillfully applied silkscreen of the illustration (just the 9/11 cow and shrub). Don’t cheap out, make them functional art and they will sell. Perhaps your http on the reverse? Sell them here to raise funds to do more with. I’d buy a couple, at least.
    Either way >>> shop with canvas bags baguettes!
    Best cartoon of this decade. No doubt.
