Ok - THIS pi$$es me off!

The Washington Post disgustingly used a wounded soldier lying in a hospital bed, without arms and legs, as the centerpiece for a political attack on the Bush administration! You want to talk about Liberal Bias and the cr@p liberal media is pumping out without thinking - HERE YA GO!

Military Denounces Newspaper for Cartoon

By ROBERT BURNS

WASHINGTON -- Military leaders angrily denounced as "beyond tasteless" a Washington Post editorial cartoon featuring a likeness of a severely wounded soldier and Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld as an attending doctor who says, "I'm listing your condition as `battle hardened.'"


'Shockingly' enough, the cartoonist made no attempt to apologize until the Post began being swamped with complaints about the pathetic cartoon!
