#RandiRhodes blog: Shock and Awful

“Happy” Iraq War 10th Anniversary! What do you get someone for the 10th anniversary of a mistake? The traditional gift for a 10th anniversary is tin or aluminum. Maybe a nice gift would be some aluminum tubes to commemorate the absurd reasons we were given for starting this war.

Today in Iraq, the anniversary was marked by car bombs and suicide attacks that killed over 50 people. In a sad and tragic way, the Iraqis may actually be marking the anniversary in the most appropriate way there is. The sad truth is that people everywhere have always marked the anniversary of killing with more killing. There is still constant violence in Iraq today. We never really ended the war in Iraq—we just left it.

I wonder what George W. Bush is doing today? Maybe he’s marking a quiet anniversary by just telling lies to his immediate family. At least this anniversary reminds us how much worse it is when Republicans are in charge of the White House. All that Republicans can do now is impede our way forward. When Bush was president, they could actively lead us backward.

Reince Priebus has announced the results of an autopsy on the GOP failures in the 2012 election. Priebus says that there is no “one reason” that Republicans lost. I could narrow it down to one for you—you’re Republicans.
In Stuebenville, two girls were arrested for sending threats to the victim in the rape case. The girls who sent the social media threats to the rape victim were 15 and 16 years old. Now that they’ve been arrested, maybe CNN can do a story about how devastating the arrest was for the girls who made the threats. And I’m sure Breitbart will be out with a story saying that the rape victim was inviting the threats with her actions. After all, her actions included accusing her rapists of raping her, and that evidently doesn’t fly among some people in Steubenville.
Police say that a Florida man found dead in his dorm room of an apparent suicide had planned a killing spree that never came off. This is where the NRA has left us—the only way we have of avoiding killings is to hope that the would-be killers fail to pull their plan off. When he was found the man had a handgun, assault rifle, hundreds of rounds of ammunition, and several homemade bombs, or what the NRA would have you think is an ordinary dorm room.
