of course none of the following were thought of until 11/8, yeah right.
1. Kissinger says U.S. can?t win in Iraq:
Kissinger presented a bleak vision of Iraq, saying the U.S. government must enter into dialogue with Iraq?s neighbors ? including Iran ? if progress is to be made in the region.
?If you mean by ?military victory,? an Iraqi government that can be established and whose writ runs across the whole country, that gets the civil war under control and sectarian violence under control in a time period that the political processes of the democracies will support, I don?t believe that is possible,? he told the British Broadcasting Cor

You're kidding me, right?"--boortz
You will recall that just before the election a few weeks ago the media was chock full of stories about how bad our economy really is. The middle class was disappearing, wages were down, foreclosures were up ... and the people just knew that things weren't going well on the economic front.
That was then ... before the election. This is now.
Guess what? Yesterday The Christian Science Monitor informed us that we have experienced a brisk rise in American wages? Who would have believed it? Wages actually going up, you say? Not only are wages going up, but they're going up at a rate not seen since the 1990s.
Well, you've probably guessed by now that these wages really didn't start going up until after the election -- after the Democrats so soundly trounced the Republicans. You might have guessed that, but you would be wrong. We're just now learning that this incredible increase in American wages has been going on for a year! We're up over 4% over the past 12 months?
OK .. you know where this is going. Why wasn't this story told by the media before the 2006 midterm elections? Why wait until after?
You're kidding me, right?
