The Thursday ‘BushWhack’ing

Week is going by slooooow...

  • After an all-night session, the Iraq war vote was defeated by republicans who have put their president ahead of their country… now the Democrats seem to be regrouping and re-strategizing… at least that’s what I hope they’re all doing.
  • And here’s a personal note to the republicans (Lieberman included) that blocked a Democratic bid to force a vote on U.S. troop withdrawals from Iraq. A new CBS/NYT poll finds that 61% of Americans say that the war “should be funded only if there’s a timetable for withdrawal.” So continue ignoring the will of the American people… it will come back to bite you on the ass. What’s that phrase I used to always say on here? Oh yes; ‘Karma, baby!!!”
  • “President” Bush has rejected pleas by republican allies that he compromise with Democrats on legislation aimed at renewing a popular and needed program that provides health coverage to poor children. And no, he doesn’t have a better solution, he wants to kill it because he says that expanding the program would enlarge the role of the federal government at the expense of private insurance… (What a moron. What an absolute ‘effin moron… Screw the children, I’m looking out for big business. January 2009 can NOT come soon enough…)
  • As if you needed more proof that the Bush(whacked) Administration politicizes every damn thing they touch and every decision they make, here ya go.
  • If you read the article; “The Debates’ New Face”, it seems the Washington Post just discovered/realized that YouTube and the internet are going to change the way political campaigns are done in this country. Thank you tubes!!
  • And have we mentioned? That Fox “News” puppet-master Rupert Murdoch’s potential takeover of Dow Jones is worrying many employees of the Wall Street Journal. Said one reporter; “There’s a real culture of passion for the truth, for shining lights in dark places. The overwhelming view here is that under Murdoch, that gets compromised from Day One, and that idea is devastating, heartbreaking, to people.” (Letting him buy Dow Jones could very well go down as one of the biggest business mistakes EVAH...
