Happy Talk

Dan Froomkin has the details on the web site Bush mentioned at the end of his speech last night.
As of 11 a.m. ET today, the site boasted 73,216 messages received -- but only 25,913 were viewable by the public.

And indeed, none of the messages I saw expressed any reservation about the war effort whatsoever.

Searching for the word shame, for instance, you find things like: "The media definitely doesn't tell of all the good they are doing. What a shame."

Searching for the word rotten, you get: "Don't let the rotten news from home get you down . . . it's only the dirty press looking for headlines." And searching for the word quagmire, you get nothing.

The web site is AmericaSupportsYou.mil and the viewable messages are here.
