Injuries Decline in Iraq

A glimmer of positive news coming from Iraq: The numbers of injured U.S. troops last year had dropped 26 percent from 2004. Experts attribute the decline to several factors, including more involvement in the Iraqi political process and fewer instances of brutal urban battle.

The numbers of U.S. troop deaths, however, remained virtually unchanged.

Chase, sorry to bring you down ... but according to "chocolate city" nut Nagin, being in Iraq under false pretenses has led to God's judgement against arrogant America. So it really doesn't matter if injuries have gone down, or that free elections have been held and a coalition government involving the Sunnis will soon be in control for the next four years ... or if any other positive news comes from Iraq. Because it looks like Nagin has a pipeline straight to God (and interestingly I've read no one on CTTC castigate Nagin in the same tones they would reserve for, say, Pat Robertson). See, none of that good news from Iraq matters, because God is going to bring down the thunderbolts on naive, jingoistic, too-stupid-to-know-what's-good-for-it Jesusland for having the audacity to re-elect Dumbya. After the deluge, surviving citizens with a "D" on their voter registration cards will live in a paradise of funky coffee shops where the waitstaff is more pretentious than the clientele, only alternative bands with graying stringy hair and nasally voices play in federally-mandated punk clubs, arthouse movie theaters show only Sundance-endorsed documentaries or romances about gay cowboys, and a general utopian hegemony of the creative class reigns. I'm definitely looking forward to this new Garden. Aren't you?

But Nagin is a lifelong Republican who switched parties shortly before he ran for New Orleans mayor, and, in fact, still endorsed the Republican nominee for governor.

So presumably God will still save a number of Republicans.

But I think it's clear that the surviving Republicans will be there only to serve as subhuman waiters to walk around with the "delicious drink" of chocolate on silver trays to offer to the likes of the Crazed Archduke Nagin. By the way, I think we all need to step back for a moment and admit Nagin has a point: Chocolate is very good when mixed with milk.
