The Tuesday ‘BushWhack’ing

Insert own lead-in here:

  • If I hear one more pundit describe Karl “President” Rove as a “Boy Genius”… I’m gonna plotz… though Eugene Robinson’s op-ed in WaPo has fun with the moniker…
  • The Bush(whacked) Administration spent close to $1.6 billion on public relations and publicity… my question is this; What would Bush’s polling numbers look like if they didn’t spend that much???
  • Using a “little-noticed” provision in the reauthorization of the Patriot Act, Alberto “Albatross” Gonzales will have greater influence over death penalty cases in California and other states… including the ability to “shorten the time that death row inmates have to appeal convictions to federal courts.” (What?? How in God’s name does this fall under the authority of the US Attorney General?? I support the death penalty in most cases – yes, a Liberal who supports the death penalty – but giving the US AG that much power is an infringement on state’s rights… and isn’t that something that republicans are supposed to be against??)
  • John McCain (r-AZ) still thinks he can win the presidency
  • And have we mentioned? That ever since White House “war czar,” Gen. Doug Lute suggested that reinstituting the military draft should be kept on the table, people on both sides of the aisle having been coming out against it and for it… this will end well…
