Egypt's Mubarak and Hamas's Meshed and Saud's Abdullah get slapped.
"Must not permit the Iranian regime to gain nuclear weapons."
Citizens of Iran: "a free and democratic Iran ..."
Ahmadinejad stares back from the mystery of his hidey-hole.
Hillary looks depressed. Maybe she was planning on a drink with Cindy after class.
Must recognize Israel and reject terrorism. Strong words. Fat chance.
With lines like that I might be able to sleep well tonight, especially if they keep giving me images of Kerry looking so sour.
Dems sit when Bush says we're winning, but stand when he says we must back the troops.
