The Friday ‘BushWhack’ing

Friday is here, and my heart knows no bounds.

  • Oil prices have soared to “another record high,” hitting $90.07 yesterday…
  • A strategist on Sen. Clinton’s (D-NY) made a prediction yesterday and said that close to 25% of republican women could vote for her… which drew a sharp retort from one of her opponents; Sen. Obama (D-IL). (Wow… talking like that, saying that your candidate would garner votes from the opposition party, almost like he’s paid to say that and was strategizing something… … it’s so hard to express sarcasm in the written form.)
  • Religious conservatives, one of the gops most treasured groups and a group they could always count on for bringing them votes, are having trouble with all of the gop presidential candidates. (Meh. It could only help the Dems in the end and maybe, just maybe, might bring some enlightenment to a FEW people, though I doubt it...)
  • Did I mention that oil prices have soared to “another record high,” and hit $90.07 yesterday?
  • Democrats failed to override “President” Bush’s SCHIP veto but are vowing to go back to the drawing board until they create a bill that will get presidential approval. Uh, huh… just like they did on Iraq… and FISA…
  • Bush’s nominee to replace Attorney General Gonzales, Michael Mukasey, is frustrating Democrats with his answers on torture… (and this is surprising people because??? Despite some republican’s objections of his nomination, he IS a republican with republican ideologies, and if you were truly expecting something different, then you should get a new job… preferably one that makes use of the phrase; want fries with that?)
  • And have we mentioned? That the Iraqi government has “put the U.S. on notice” that they do not want permanent U.S. bases in Iraq? It’s true… Iraqi National Security Adviser Mowaffak Al-Rubaie gave the message “directly to Vice President Dick Cheney at the White House” and later told CNN that Iraqis say, “No, big fat no, N-O for the bases in Iraq.” (It will be interesting to see how the Bush(whacked) Administration reacts to this and what they do… though, since it IS this White House, they’ll probably do what they always do. Ignore the will of people and do whatever the hell they want… stay tuned)

Yawn.

Well played Fetiche, that must have taxed your brain muscles coming up with that lively retort.

You have a very different idea of what constitutes news from what average Americans -- you know, the kind that love their cuntry and can tell reality from fantasy -- have.

Fetiche, First of all, learn to spell. Second, don't you EVER accuse me of not loving my country, because I do love my country... what I don't love are lemmings, such as yourself, who seem to think that everything is hunky-dory because certain people tell you that it is.
