WHILE YOU WERE OUT
How's that vacation going sir? Enjoying yourself?

Image hosted by TinyPic.com I'm hunting evildoers. Heh.

I know you've still got a full month of your non-vacation vacation to go, but I saw today that you took some time off from your busy brush-clearing schedule to pump some more cash into the coffers of your buddies from the energy industry. I figured since you have time for that, you may have a few moments to consider a few other developments since you've been away.

Roadside Bomb Kills 14 Marines in Iraq
Fourteen U.S. Marines were killed Wednesday when a huge bomb destroyed their lightly armored vehicle, hurling it into the air in a giant fireball in the deadliest roadside bombing suffered by American forces.

Three U.S. troops killed in Baghdad car bomb
The deaths bring to 28 the number of U.S. troops killed in action in Iraq in the past four days ... the highest rate of deaths since the first week of the war.

Surge in Deaths Reveals More Lethal Foe
One of the biggest one-week death tolls for U.S. forces in Iraq and a continuing surge in killings of Iraqi forces and civilians showed that the insurgency is increasing its lethality and expanding its scope.

Enemy in Iraq getting deadlier
Attacks have spiked in recent weeks: 30 U.S. servicemembers have died in the past week, compared with 18, 15 and six in the preceding three weeks. More than 1,800 U.S. troops have been killed since the war began.

While I know it's no Baghdad, I do understand it's been hot down there on the ranch, and I know you've been busy planning for some big 'ol hoedown fundraisers and preparing to meet with some of your "economic folks," but do you think maybe you could take a few minutes to invite Ms. Sheehan in for a nice, cold glass of iced tea? She apparently has some things she'd like to say to you. Or would you rather just disappear–erm, arrest her?

Oh, and by the way, Cindy isn't alone. Most Americans don't seem to be agreeing with your policies or strategy anymore. Go figure.

Just think, only 4 short years ago, in the summer of 2001, you were able to clear brush, golf, jog and fish in peace. The only distraction then was a pesky little memo about some crazy man in Afghanistan who was "determined to strike the US." You didn't let that distract from your vacation, now did you? So buck up little Georgie, don't let all the troubles of this world get you down. And definitely don't let some angry woman, who isn't even appreciative to you for letting her sacrifice her son to your 'struggle', ruin your vacation. Why don't you go lose yourself in the brush for a while and feel better, ok?

For ongoing coverage of White House West, go over and take a gander at Karena down in Texas. She's all over it. And then some.
