On tonight’s episode of the hokey new MSNBC TV show, Countdown: Iraq, or whatever it’s called, they had a quick segment on Americans living in the middle east, discussing what the mood is like, any tensions they might be feeling with all this talk of new action against Iraq.

They had bit interviews with two women living in Kuwait. Unfortunately, they were these blonde, bimbo, redneck women, most likely military wives. They had nothing interesting to say.
