Scores of people were killed in Iraq today in a suicide car bomb attack and in a gunbattle, making it one of the worst days of violence since the handover of official sovereignty in Iraq last month.
The car bomb exploded in Baquba, a town about 40 miles north of Baghdad, killing 70 people and wounding 56, according to the Iraqi Health Ministry, in the deadliest such attack since the United States-led coalition passed some power to the Iraqi interim government on June 28.
A statement from the United States military put the death toll at 45 Iraqi civilians killed and 98 wounded, and a spokesman for the military could not explain the discrepancy between the death toll figures.

Now here's a slogan: "They're not patriots," Moore said (of Republicans) . "They're hate-triots, and they believe in the politics of hate-triotism. Hate-triotism is where they stand, and patriotism is where real Americans stand."
He's probably tired of them censoring him.
