The Weekly Rewind

We had a Rewind posted last week, but somewhere between Scott hitting ‘post’ and it showing on the ‘the tubes’ of the internet, Blogger (who bites it), lost the entire post…

So here’s this week’s… hopefully… if it gets lost, we left a trail of breadcrumbs for it to find its way back…

Applaud: to the masses. According to a new CNN poll, nearly half of all Americans think most members of Congress are corrupt (well, duh). This reflects a 12% rise since the start of 2006.

Heckle: to Bill “Whack-job” O’Reilly. Earlier this week on his radio show he stated that abortion is “never the case” that a “mother’s life is in danger” because one could “always have a C-section”… (What a tool…)

Applaud: to MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann. Earlies this week he addressed “President” Bush’s (false) claim that detainees will be able to “hear all the evidence against them” by stating: “Your words are lies, Sir. They are lies, that imperil us all.” (Wonderfully put Keith. Notice: if you’re a Liberal, Democrat, Progressive or simply if you’re not a lemming, and you don’t listen to Keith, you really should. He’s saying what we’re all thinking and he’s using an ever-growing audience to get that message out… we now leave this commercial break for our regularly-scheduled snark…

Heckle: to the death of habeas corpus. Sadly, what more can be said that hasn’t already been said (and ignored) by the right??

Applaud: to more screws turning tighter on more republican congressmen. Word came out this past week that federal agents are investigating ties between Rep. Curt Weldon (R-PA) and Bogoljub Karic, who is a “wealthy Serbian businessman” who has close ties to former Yugoslav leader Slobodan Milosevic.” (Well, in Mr. Weldon’s defense… he’s just folling the herd off the cliff…)

Heckle: to what could very well be the dumbest quote about Iraq from Dick Cheney ever: “If you look at the general overall situation [in Iraq], they're doing remarkably well.” (Sorry Dick, I have a feeling if you ask the Iraqis they would have a very different answer. Wake up and smell the failure nimrod…)

Minor-Applaud: The Bush Administration (finally getting to the self-evident point we all saw months ago) declared its intentions earlier this week to rethink Iraq policy. I could say more, but it’s just easier to point you to articles by the Washington Post, the New York Times, the L.A. Times , and the Wall Street Journal.

Applaud: to a federal judge who ruled that records of who visited Dick Cheney's house and office must be released. (Truthfully, knowing what type of person he is… I don’t think I really want to know what he does in the comfort of his house and office… ewwwwwww….)

Heckle:to continuing problems and issues with Blogger that make it extremely difficult to post anything at times... like today.

That's it.

Take 'em as you will...
