The Monday ‘BushWhack’ing

Another week begins...

  • Today is the day… today Gen. David Petraeus gives his the White House’s report on the status of “President” Bush’s surge and already the Democratic chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Joe Biden (D-DE) is finding fault with the General’s assessment. More rhetoric from the Democrats… all debate and NO ACTION… (Though it’s a good bet that 98% of the American population know what Petraeus is going to say, his testimony – or whatever you wish to call it – should still make for some interesting theater…)
  • As Karl “President” Rove gets ready to pack his bags and flee the ship, his replacement, Barry Jackson – former COS to Rep. John Boehner (r-OH) – is already getting started.
  • New Hampshirians (New Hampshirites? Hampshires?) are not happy with Fred Thompson
  • The Democratic presidential candidates took part in the first-ever presidential forum in Spanish yesterday, and it wasn’t all lovey-dovey as Dodd (D-CT), Clinton (D-NY) and Obama (D-IL) got shellacked for their vote on building a great wall fence on the US-Mexico border. (Nice… good to know they didn’t kowtow just because they were Democrats. Makes me wish the republican candidates weren’t scared shitless to partake in a debate like this…)
  • 60% of Americans say the US “should set a timetable to withdraw forces” and then “stick to that timetable regardless of what is going on in Iraq.” (Everyone else is seeing this? Why can’t the White House?)
  • And have we mentioned? That a new study has found that “liberals tolerate ambiguity and conflict better than conservatives?” That’s right… and it’s all because of how our brains work, reported the study; “Liberals were 4.9 times as likely as conservatives to show activity in the brain circuits that deal with conflicts.” (And my snark about ‘using our own brains’ and not being ‘lemmings’ becomes more and more apt…)
