Will This Stick?

In their effort to throw crap up against the wall to see what sticks, the Bush administration has decided to start doing body counts.

Tony Snow explains that the White House wants us to know that its not just our guys getting killed, but that we're killing a lot of Iraqis too.

I don't know anyone that has criticized the administration for not killing enough people. But clearly, Bush is feeling inadequate and wants to prove he's manly, by producing reports showing that he's getting lots of people killed.

I'm not surprised that the Bush administration sees the death tolls as symbols of progress. As he has said, he's joyous about the war. And in speechs over the years, he's made it clear that he wants to be defined by war, and he's very proud of his accomplishments. I think there's no doubt that he feels glorified by the deaths.

So its probably no wonder that he's looking for acclaim by bragging about the number of people he's had killed.

Shittiest President Ever.
