    I don't mean to be untoward - but isn't the patriotically correct
    policy that the anti-war types this time around are all being
    run by the super-duper-Iraqi-Sekret-Intelligence-Agency, and
    that only the Fox News types are buying this these that the
    anti-war types are all under the thumb of the stalinists, since
    that way proves that the Cold War is STILL ON!
