This horrible tragedy should give President Obama the Amityville Horror moment he needs to realize it's now long past time to "Get OUT!" of Afghanistan. The original mission of defeating Al Qaeda and chasing off the Taliban was achieved by the end of 2001. We haven't had mission creep, we've had "mission of the month." What the hell is this? Baskin Robins?

Why on earth are we still there? Doesn't Obama give a damn about the innocent Afghans he has killed with his policy? Does he lose any sleep at night after sending all of the American men and women to fight in Afghanistan for no real measurable gain in U.S. security or national interest? Maybe the real reason is that his fragile ego and nervousness over re-election lead him to want to show the world that he can man up with the hawks in both political parties.

Meanwhile Leon Panetta should be forced to apologize personally to each and everyone of the people harmed by this tragedy: to the Afghan families who lost their loved ones and continue to suffer from the trauma of this massacre as well as to all of the soldiers whose sacrifice he minimized by glibly uttering this trite cliche. What a putz. Shame on him.

What senseless, unjust loss of human lives.

Grumpy Old Rush

Some of you might think this 'toon to be a bit harsh, but Rush's brutish behavior and "foibles" are all there on public record: his periodic pill-poppin' binges to the Caribbean and anywhere else where he can take a vacation from stomping the moral high ground into a field of cow pies. His hypocrisy reveals just how deeply sick he really is, which is maybe why 15-20 million fellow hatred-junkies tune into his show daily.

There are programs for people like him, and I hope one day he chooses to sober up. But even once he finally puts that bottle down, he'll still have to face himself in the mirror and account for all of the hatred and mean-spiritedness he has spread in the world in his 20+ years of broadcasting.

Barefoot in a Burka

Medieval and misogynistic - how else can you describe the Republicans' all-out assault on half the population? Supported by their pedophilic, homophobic brethren among religious "leaders," these vile, hateful little men are trying place us on a backsliding course to reverse history's trend towards greater equality, tolerance, and acceptance.

What would Jesus do? Shake his head in disgust, and being a good carpenter take a hammer and try to knock some sense into these knuckleheads.
