In case CNN's crucial coverage of the important Michael Jackson Trial took precedence, we thought we'd let you know that "War President", George W. Bush has just succeeded in watching (or not noticing) the 1500th U.S. Troop die in his War on Iraq.

We congratulate him on his "catastrophic success" as he so smartly put it some months ago.

That number, of course, doesn't include the scores of thousands of US troops injured, 100,000+ Iraqi civilians killed...and then there are all those dead U.S. Troops that the DoJ is rumored not to count at all in their tallies because they were only wounded in Iraq, but were kind enough to wait to die hospital or airspace outside of Iraq.

0 WMDs have been found as of today's impressive milestone.

Can ya smell the liberty spreading?!
