The Monday ‘BushWhack’ing

Another week, more absurdity...

  • Joe Lieberman (I r – CT) has endorsed Sen. John McCain (r-AZ) for president saying that McCain can reunite the country… Sigh, what more can I say other than Lieberman is a fucking tool…
  • As the first primary nears, the newspaper endorsements are starting to roll in… The Des Moines Register endorsed Hillary Clinton (D-NY) and The Boston Globe picked Barack Obama (D-IL). On the republican side John McCain picked up not only the Register’s endorsement but also the Globe’s… which snubbed native son Mitt Romney… (This is big news for the three camps as newspaper endorsements usually bring more clout than celebrity’s…)
  • Scary sentence in WaPo article; “As Congress stumbles toward Christmas, President Bush is scoring victory after victory over his Democratic adversaries.” (Scary but true. Many times this year the Democrats have looked to be growing a pair, but then they disappear…)
  • In a new interview with Stars and Stripes, Army Chief of Staff Gen. George Casey said that the current state of the Army is “out of balance” due to “President” Bush’s policies in Iraq and Afghanistan… (well, duhhhhhhhhh)
  • And have we mentioned? That a republican, Rep. Pete Hoekstra (MI), is stirring the CIA videotape destruction pot? It’s true as Hoekstra, the ranking republican on the House Intelligence Committee, promised that he will push forward with “a probe into the destruction of CIA videotapes of detainee interrogations, despite a Justice Department request that congressional inquiries be suspended.” (Stay tuned…)
