    Perhaps they believed that 15-20 soldiers dying every week, while regrettable, was not as important as maintaining the bully pulpit against abortion or keeping their tax cuts or opposing same-sex marriage.  

    The scary thing is that 36 dead soldiers in Iraq yesterday was just another day in the news even though it was the worst so far.  36 soldiers dead in a month of occupation used to be considered extreme and worrying, then it became commonplace and 36 casualties in a week became newsworthy.  Now 36 casualties in a day are required to make the news.
