Thursday ‘BushWhack’ing

  • Candidate for gop Tool of the Week. Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC) has decided to place blame for U.S. troop deaths on Congress’ Iraq debate. Said DeMint:
    “Al-Qaida knows that we’ve got a lot of wimps in Congress. I believe a lot of the casualties can be laid at the feet of all the talk in Congress about how we’ve got to get out, we’ve got to cut and run.”
    (Besides being incredibly callous to the troops and their families, this has to be one of the absolutly dumbest things I have heard said recently about the war. Attacks increased because of debate? Has DeMint been taking simplicity lessons from Bush??)
  • Senator Joe “republican” Lieberman (I-CT) made a surprise visit to Iraq yesterday. And while he was strolling around saying things like “what I see here today is progress, significant progress,” troops that met with him were saying things 190 degrees different. Spc. David Williams collected questions for Lieberman from 30 other troops and the questions and statements included things like; “We don’t feel like we’re making any progress” and “When are we going to get out of here?” When Lieberman went to talk to the soliders again, he said we’re gonna do everything we can to get you guys out of here… yes, I’m lying… he actually said that leaving Iraq would be a
    victory for al-Qaida and a victory for Iran.
    (IRAN??? WTF)
  • AttornyGate is getting bigger and wider. Just how much longer can Gonzales hold on??
  • The Department of the Interior has been working hard on a vital issue for the last few months. No, not conservationsim…no, not the preservation of our National Parks… and no, not the monitoring of our wildlife… they’ve been coming up with a motto. (That’s a good use of their time and resources… hopefuly not everyone in the department was working on that one thing. But since it’s a part of this administration, they probably were…)
  • Are you among the hundreds dozen people wondering what former Head of Arabian Horse Association FEMA Michael "Heckuva Job" Brown has been up to? (I know you weren’t wondering… no one has). He was on Hardball with Chris “Bill O’Reilly Lite” Matthews last night to talk about… are you ready for this… Homeland Security… insert your own snark here.
  • And have we mentioned? That the next Democratic presidential debate is this Sunday night from 7 to 9 at Saint Anselm College. (Meh)
