The new, "aggressive" 2006 Democratic platform advocates shifting 140,000 American soldiers out of Iraq to attack a nuclear-armed nominal ally to capture a figurehead dialysis patient that Harry Reid already thinks is dead.

More. Please.

Note: Bad link fixed.

Do they actually say they're going to attack Pakistan with those troops? Because I'm not getting that from the platform statement. It's too much of a leap for me from "eliminate Bin Laden through deploying more spies and special forces," which sounds like if anything it would involve more cooperation and diplomacy with Pakistan, not war.

Actually, the platform says very little at all. It is typical politican-speak... notice no time is set for the withdrawal. The true fill-in-the-blank is, of course, "when it's politically convenient." But if it were "when the d@mn job is done," then it would be indistinguishable from the Republican position, and they can't say the Dems didn't say that... the Dems can argue one way to one audience and another to another. Where have we seen that before? The rest is rhetoric without a plan, again all too familiar. CYA.

Wouldn't that be normal for Dusty Reid. Nothing he does or says makes sense. The people of Nv. should be real proud of the idiot they elected to serve them. His stupidity is a direct reflection on the citizens of Nv and it's not good.

I have a point you might want to consider. I have heard that Osama is on dialysis. There are two methods of doing this, one is hemodialysis which requires very sophisticated machines and tubing that has to be changed every time it is used which is about three times per week. The other is peritoneal that requires a special solution and again tubing that is changed with each use and is preformed daily. The key is that dialysis for one individual uses considerable fluid and tubing that is limited in manufacture and distribution. If he is on dialysis, is anyone following the distribution of this material? In my town of 200,000 people it would be easy to see who is receiving the dialysis and where. In a remote area it would be very simple to follow the distribution route. So why haven't we gotten this guy?

Because the dialysis story is 100% USDA pure B.S. strikes me as a distinct possibility.
