Rhetoric of the right: Get a load of conservative columnist Doug Patton, writing for GOPUSA:
The lie heard round the world about the flushed Koran has caused convulsions in the Bush Administration and forced the Pentagon to launch an investigation of unfounded allegations contained in an unsubstantiated story. The results of said investigation are now in, and it seems there are at least five incidents of "mishandling" of the Koran at Gitmo.

Well, guess what? I don't care!

Are we fighting a war on terror or aren't we? Was it or was it not started by Islamic people who brought it to our shores on September 11, 2001? Were people from all over the world, mostly Americans, not brutally murdered that day, in downtown Manhattan, across the Potomac from our nation's capitol and in a field in Pennsylvania? Did nearly three thousand men, women and children die a horrible, burning death that day, or didn't they?

And I'm supposed to care that a copy of the Koran was "desecrated" when an overworked American soldier kicked it or got it wet? Well, I don't. I don't care at all.

I'll start caring when Osama bin Laden turns himself in and repents for incinerating all those innocent people on 9/11.

Speaking of tired troops: How come the patriots over at Fox News stopped updating its list of military casualties in Iraq almost a month ago? The military death toll is now at 1,687.

And now the good news: Rightwingers lament that all those carbombs and military casualties make headlines, but the good news in Iraq gets overlooked. Well, this just in: Fallujah's public schools are now getting "skylights" installed!
