The Monday ‘BushWhack’ing

Another week, another helping of a thing we like to call the Daily ‘BushWhack’ing...

  • Have you heard that Oprah Winfrey is stumping for Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL)? Yeah, me neither… in case you couldn’t tell, that was sarcasm…
  • Hilarious CNN political headline of the day; “gop debaters try civility” (Um… okay…)
  • Apparently four members of Congress (both Democrats and republicans) were briefed in 2002 about waterboarding and other CIA torture techniques and allegedly no objections were raised on that day. (this revelation hardly surprises me… I’ve always suspected that some in Congress knew about the torture and chose to either ignore it or accept it while publicly ignoring it. Now what? Stay tuned…)
  • South Carolina is embracing gop presidential candidate Mike Huckabee not so much for Rudy Giuliani… does that surprise anyone???
  • “President” Bush is suffering from Ollie North-itis as he is saying he has “no recollection” of videotapes existing that show CIA interrogations of al Qaeda suspects or CIA plans to destroy the tapes… (For a president, he certainly doesn’t know a lot about what’s going on within his own administration… rather scary isn’t it??)
  • And have we mentioned? That “President” Bush likes to surround himself with people as, (ahem), smart as he is? White House Press Secretary Dana Perino appeared on NPR’s quiz show “Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me” over the weekend and revealed her most stressful moment on the job. During a White House briefing, a reporter referred to the Cuban Missile Crisis, and Perino “panicked a bit” because she didn’t “know about” it. Said Perino; “It had to do with Cuba and missiles, I’m pretty sure.” (Wow… great deducing there Ms. Perino. Did you really think her most stressful moment was going to be about Iraq, Osama bin-Laden, AttorneyGate, Iran or the Constitution?. Of course not, it’s something that happened over forty years ago… something that most people learn about in grade school or high school. Nothing like surrounding yourself with the best and brightest George…)
