Five Years


Ah, memories:

CHRIS MATTHEWS: What do you make of this broadside against the USS Abraham Lincoln and its chief visitor last week?

G. GORDON LIDDY: Well, I -- in the first place, I think it's envy. I mean, after all, Al Gore had to go get some woman to tell him how to be a man. And here comes George Bush. You know, he's in his flight suit, he's striding across the deck, and he's wearing his parachute harness, you know -- and I've worn those because I parachute -- and it makes the best of his manly characteristic. You go run those -- run that stuff again of him walking across there with the parachute. He has just won every woman's vote in the United States of America. You know, all those women who say size doesn't count -- they're all liars. Check that out. I hope the Democrats keep ratting on him and all of this stuff so that they keep showing that tape.

And the reality:

American soldiers killed in action since Mission Accomplished: 3,924
Women killed in action since Mission Accomplished: 102
Total American military casualties: 29,829
