The Friday ‘BushWhack’ing

It's Friday, hav a short 'BushWhack'ing...

  • "President” Bush has rejected outright the suggestion of a gasoline tax increase aimed at repairing thousands of structurally deficient bridges… just like the one that collapsed in Minneapolis last week.
  • The Democratic presidential candidates appeared at a gay-rights forum last night, and it really didn’t go well for many of them… Bill Richardson stuck his foot in his mouth (again)… Hillary Clinton threw her husband under the bus in response to a charge from singer Melissa Etheridge that Bill threw gays under the bus during his administration…and John Edwards and Barack Obama got nailed for not supporting gay marriage. The only candidate who was embraced was Dennis Kucinich who is the only candidate to support gay marriage. (Kucinich? Really?)
  • It seems as though Vice President Dick “President” Cheney is still pushing for confronting Iran. Website McClatchy reports that behind the scenes “the president’s top aides have been engaged in an intensive internal debate over how to respond” to Iran and that several weeks ago, Cheney “proposed launching airstrikes” at Iraqi locations that are suspected to be terrorist training camps run by the Quds force, which is a special unit of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard. (God, someone impeach the man before he gets us into another unneeded and disasterous war…)
  • And have we mentioned? That former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani just doesn’t get it… he said yesterday; “I was at ground zero as often, if not more, than most of the workers. […] I was exposed to exactly the same things they were exposed to. So in that sense, I’m one of them.” (Way to antagonize people there Rudy… let’s see what someone else has to say about your statement) The head of the Uniformed Fire Officers Association in New York, Battalion Chief John McDonnell, didn’t respond well; “I think he’s really grasping and trying to justify his previous attempts to portray himself as the hero of 9/11.” (Ouch…)
