    Of course, he has murdered thousands of our young women and men, but I'm not even talking about that atrocity, for which none of our board chicken hawks have asked an apology....

    This is based purely on what Shrub has said, based on the newly established John Kerry standard of misspeak being taken literally by asshats such as John McCain, Tony Snow and Silver Spoon In Chief himself:
