The Week Ahead

Yes, it’s Monday. Columbus Day.

Which also means it’s time for The Week Ahead…

  • Awwwww crap… pay a LOT of attention to North Korea as they may have detonated a nuclear device (especially since our “fearless” leader didn’t understand why he should worry about North Korea at all…) Everyone panic in four, three, two…
  • Keep an eye on Dubya’s sanity. Yesterday, former Sr. Bush crony James Baker, (the Republican co-chairman of a bipartisan panel re-assessing Iraq strategy for Bush) stated that he “absolutely agrees” with the sentiments expressed by Sen. John Warner (R-VA) of setting a timetable for are redeployment from Iraq. (When a gop crony like Baker starts to disagree with you, you know you’re in deep…)
  • Pay attention to Keith Olbermann. Why? For calling Bush out with this perfect quote” “Why has the ferocity of your venom against the Democrats now exceeded the ferocity of your venom against the terrorists?” Well said Keith, very well said…
  • Keep an eye on Mark Foley… besides for the obvious reasons his fall from grace may be an ominous sign of things to come for the gop and a promising sign of things to come for the Dems… at least it will be unless the Dems somehow screw it up… again…
  • Pay heed as a new Newsweek poll, released this past Saturday, showed President Bush's approval rating at 33%, which is a “new all-time low” for that poll. If this blog had tags, “Obvious” would be attached to this item…
  • Pay attention as the races for several contested seats start to reach a boiling point. Some key races to watch (each one featuring one candidate – the republican – who seems to be crazy as a fuc**** loon): Allen* vs. Webb, Talent* vs. McCaskill, Harris* vs. Nelson, Reynolds* vs. Davis, (* denotes the crazy one)
  • Keep an eye on Randy “Duke” Cunningham’s (R) sanity as he whines complains from prison about how the press has been treating him since he was found guilty of corruption. Uh, okay… maybe someone should send the ex-Senator that he was found guilty of a crime and is in jail… not daycare… for breaking the law. Dumbass…
  • THIS STORY is sad and depressing. Please read it and then let your voices be heard. If you want to read more about women in Iran being stoned to death and how you might be able to help, then read THIS and THIS.
  • Don’t let House Speaker Dennis Hastert out of your sight for a moment… though the majority of Americans want him to disappear. According to a CNN poll, 52% believe the Foley scandal should cost House Speaker Dennis Hastert his leadership post. With 31% saying he should stay, and 17% being idiots having no opinion. This comes at the same time as a handful of conservative papers calling for Hastert to step down.

That’s all I have, take ‘em as you will…
