Reporters who ignored the countless acts of heroism by U.S. troops in Iraq, not to mention the incredible progress their efforts have yielded, suddenly can't get enough of the fact that 2,000 of America's heroes have died.
In New York, Wednesday morning's newspapers headlined the news of U.S. dead with what seemed like macabre glee.
"2,000 Dead: As Iraq Tours Stretch On, a Grim Mark," blared the New York Times front page.
Peace Mom Cindy Sheehan is paying tribute to the fallen heroes by stepping up her work to oppose their efforts, pledging to chain herself to the White House fence until President Bush agrees to cut and run.

Liberalism is truly the march of death. The USSR proved that.
And not much mention of the Iraqi Constitution being ratified.
Read the article..it's the first item in the goood news part
Start with news that the vote on Iraq's constitution has finally been tabulated. It was ratified by a staggering 79 percent margin - making Iraq the first Arab country to approve a constitution in free election.
Oh you meant in the LameStreamPress...never mind
Teddy Kennedy called it an auspicious day
Was referring to the MSM
yeah and when one of our cities gets pasted they'll be all over the other side of the issue - why didn't we take care of this in earnest when we had the chance. F em, ignore em, don't subscribe to em and watch em lay off more and more people.

While the MSM are busy celebrating this "auspicious" (per Ted Kennedy) occassion I wonder if any will ponder the question of how many would still be alive if those on the left were not offering every encouragement to the terrorists.
Media Research Center has a good report on this as well.
Now if only Cindy would add "hunger strike" to her list of "things to do".
Facts are our weapons. Repetition is our method. We need to beat the lib-Dems over the head and shoulders with truth, until only a handful of bewildered psychotics remain standing.
The San Francisco Chronicle, which had already given up any lingering pretensions it may have had of being a real newspaper even before the latest round of layoffs, filled its front page with a photograph of protesters celebrating the 2000 dead, and a bunch of pretty much irrelevant charts and graphs showing the various branches of service and which branches the dead came from -- not as any kind of analytical tool, just to take up space which in a real newspaper would contain actual news.
And they're not done celebrating just yet:
