The Friday ‘BushWhack’ing

It’s Friday… you all know what to do…

  • WARNING! WARNING! The Poughkeepsie Journal in New York reports that Vice President Dick "President" Cheney is going hunting this weekend. So anyone in the region should maintain alertness... don't say we didn' warn you.
  • CNN headline; “Iran becoming new Iraq on campaign trail.” (Wow, they certainly are on the ball in Atlanta, aren’t they? It’s so hard to express sarcasm in the written form. I, personally, still think that Iraq is Iraq on the campaign trail; but that would be too logical, wouldn’t it…)
  • The House passed the revised SCHIP bill yesterday, although once again “President” Bush has vowed to wield his veto crayon to stop it saying that is covers TOO many kids. Stay tuned, I doubt that this is the end of it…
  • The Representatives who sponsored the resolution that would label the 1915 killing of Armenians by Ottoman Turks as genocide have asked Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to delay the vote because they’re worried that it would fail. (I understand the symbolism in this resolution, but the timing is off and delaying the vote is probably a good idea…)
  • Fearful of not being relevant anymore, Iowa Democrats are planning to have their caucus on January 3rd. (All fine and good, but Iowa has not been relevant in the primary process for a very long time, and the more they strive to BE relevant, the more ridiculous they look…)
  • And have we mentioned? That ex-Senator, and current gop prez candidate Fred Thompson (r-TN) said that he doesn’t share Dick Cheney’s views of executive power? It’s true, he said; “No, I think the constitution in times of war, especially, is very definitive about that. […] [I]t’s divided power in the constitution. Our founding fathers divided that up. … So no one branch of the government can misuse power.” (Wow… truer words have never been spoken by a republican a politician. Too bad his campaign is already on the rocks and taking on water…)

Not sure if it was an overreaction, but I died laughing at that first one.
