The Wednesday ‘BushWhack’ing

  • As republican senators & representatives, along with conservative voters, continue to grow more skeptical of the war in Iraq, a key group of republican senators have called for a reduction in US forces and have already started to draft rebuttals to whatever “progress” the administration claims in its “September barometer.” (Wow… it only took republicans HOW long to realize that the Iraq war is a quagmire with no exit strategy and… well… really no strategy at all. Now if only the members of the Bush(whacked) Administration could see that, we’d be making progress)
  • Bush lap dog British Prime Minister Tony Blair has officially resigned. It’s expected that he will take his place on Bush’s lap within the week…
  • The Washington Post’s series on Vice President Dick “President” Cheney continues… it’s definitely worth a read
  • The immigration bill is quickly turning into the “Bill that won't die” If “Schoolhouse Rocks” did a segment about that, I would have watched…
  • A new CNN poll finds 30% of Americans, which is a new low btw, support the U.S. war in Iraq and. What’s bigger news from this poll is that now, for the first time, a majority of Americans, 54%, say they don’t think the war is “morally justified.” (Well, duhhhhh. I’m just amazed it took some of the lemmings people this long to see that…)
  • Despite conservatives coming out of the woodwork to drum-up support and ask for leniency on his behalf, former deputy interior secretary J. Steven Griles was sentenced to 10 months in prison for a felony conviction of obstructing a Senate investigation into corrupt lobbyist Jack Abramoff. (Wow… this Abramoff story just won’t go away, will it? Who’s next? Cheney? Bush? Rove? Stay tuned)
  • And have we mentioned? That there was almost a ‘cat fight’ on MSNBC the other day when Elizabeth Edwards, wife of presidential candidate John (D-SC) confronted conservative bitch pundit Ann “rhymes with runt” Coulter. Ms. Edwards said that Coulter’s “personal attacks” on her husband and others were based on “the language of hate.” When her lame and pathetic attempts to spin it her way went awry, Coulter responded like anyother wild animal would, she attacked… and fell flat on her face. (Ann Coulter is a great example of what’s wrong with conservatives in this country. Rather than discuss the issues, they make personal attacks and ignore the people. I am not at all surprised by Ms. Coulter’s reactions, and would love the opportunity to buy Ms. Edwards a drink for standing up not only for her husband, but for the people. Way to go Elizabeth, keep it up)
