The Tuesday ‘BushWhack’ing

Where did Monday go???

  • The Democrats had another debate last night, but this was different than anything ever seen before in a presidential debate. The debate was sponsored by CNN and YouTube and allowed anyone from around the country to submit video questions to the candidates. If you haven’t seen it, I definitely advise you to watch it…
  • The House Judiciary Committee continues on its path to a constitutional showdown with the Bush(whacked) Administration over AttorneyGate and AG Alberto “Albatross” Gonzales has vowed to stay until the end of Bush’s term… (I honestly don’t know who is more delusional here; the House Judiciary or Gonzales… your thoughts?)
  • As if we needed more polling data to express that Americans are fed-up with the war and with Bush’s handling of it… but a new WaPo/ABC News poll shows just that… that the American people would rather have the Democratically controlled Congress start making the decisions about the war and take Bush out of the equation… (All fine and good… but considering Bush’s insistence that he is “The Decider” , his past history of ignoring the will of the people and Congress’ incredible lack of conviction about the war; I doubt anything will change anytime soon…)
  • Need more proof that Bush doesn’t care about the opinions of others? Last week he met with a cadre of Small Business Owners to discuss healthcare, but apparently Bush did all the talking and didn’t allow the others a chance to opine about the issue. (He truly is living in his own little world, isn’t he? No one else matters…)
  • And have we mentioned? That former Georgia Rep. Newt Gingrich (r-GA) is suffering from some mighty-big delusions of grandeur… and overall oddness? In an interview with American Spectator, he dismissed the gop field of presidential candidates as “pygmies” and went on to say;
    “If, in mid-October, it's quite clear that one or more of the current candidates is strong enough to be a serious alternative to a Clinton-Obama ticket, you don't need me to run. […} If it becomes patently obvious, as the morning paper points out, that the Democrats have raised a hundred million more than the Republicans, and at some point people decide we are going to get Hillary unless there's a radical change, then there's space for a candidate. […] So you'll know by mid-October one of those two futures is real.”
    (So there ya go, the savior of the republican party isn’t going to be Fred Thompson, it’s gonna be Newt. I would say more, but I can’t stop laughing my ass off…)
