The Weekly Rewind

EDITOR'S NOTE: I honestly don't know what happened... I posted TWR on Saturday... and it never materialized on the tubes... and it doesn't show up on Blogger... it's almost like (puts tinfoil hat on), someone took it... someone who doesn't like our views on politics.... hmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Okay, another week has ended, so have a healthy portion of a thing we like to call; The Weekly Rewind.

Applaud: to the memory of former Rep. Henry Hyde (R-IL). While his approach to politics may make you want to pull your hair out, piss you off or simply aggravate you, the man was an intelligent and compassionate (for some) man who many, in both parties, hold in high regard. Good luck in the next life sir…

Heckle: to Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, who I think is starting to truly lose it. He’s offering up a scolding of his fellow judges this week while defending his silence on the bench, saying; “My colleagues should shut up! I think that they should ask questions, but I don’t think that for judging, and for what we are doing, all those questions are necessary.” (Um… yes they are… you’re a fucking Supreme Court justice… one of the most powerful judges in the world, and you don’t think you should ask a lot of questions when hearing a case???? Get off the bench you dumbass…)

Applaud: to Sen. Joe Biden (D-DE) for saying that he will act to impeach “President” Bush if he bombs Iran without the approval of congress. Said Biden; “The President has no authority to unilaterally attack Iran and if he does, as foreign relations committee chairman, I will move to impeach.” (Too bad no Democrat had those kinds of balls when the ramp-up to Iraq was happening… oh that’s right, it wasn’t an election year…)

Heckle: to blatantly pandering for votes. In the last few weeks, Mitt Romney has been trying to portray himself as a hard-liner on immigration, saying at this week’s debate, “[W]e should say if you’re here illegally, you should not be here.” That’s not a surprise, he is a republican after all. Yet in an interview on Tuesday with the Tampa Tribune editorial board he revealed; “I can tell you my inclination would be to say as many Cubans as want to come here should come in,” […] “In my opinion, the more (Cubans) the merrier.” (Huh… Now I’m sure his love of all things Cuban had nothing to do with him being in Florida, a state that just-so-happens to have a VERY STRONG Cuban-American community... yeah; no pandering there…)

Applaud: to former Bush White House COS Andrew Card (yes, you read that right, we’re applauding him). Earlier this week, conservative Tool-For-Life, CTFL, Karl Rove asserted that it was Congress that pushed the Bush(whacked) Administration into war with Iraq (give me a break)… but earlier this week, Card appeared on MSNBC’s Morning Joe and nicely discredited Rove’s argument, saying that it was the Democrats who pushed Bush into war, and that sometimes Rove’s “mouth gets ahead of his brain”… (Besides succinctly putting into words what a LOT of others have thought, Card’s comments show just how far Rove’s status has fallen. There was a time, not too long ago, that Rove was untouchable and teflon-coated. That time is gone…)

Heckle: to Ann Coulter. I could just as easily say it’s due on general principles alone, but I have to mention her suggestion that she should be the new White House press secretary for the last six months of Bush’s reign of terror term… ewwwwwww. I don’t think there’s enough disinfectant to clean out her stench after the six months is up…

Applaud: to Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-NE)… wow, we may achieve a record with the most applauds for republicans in one Rewind. Earlier this week Hagel addressed the Council on Foreign Relations, and called the Bush White House one of the most “incompetent” in history, saying; “I have to say this is one of the most arrogant, incompetent administrations I’ve ever seen or ever read about.” (Nicely said Chuck, succinctly put…)

Heckle: to mixed-messages… or in other words, republican strategy. When Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi traveled to Syria earlier this year, conservatives across the country berated her diplomatic efforts… but now, when “President” Bush welcomes Syria’s president with open arms and a hug, conservatives across the country praise the move… I would say more, but conservatives wouldn’t understand…

Applaud: to the news that a sixth republican senator announced they were stepping down this election cycle. This time coming in the form of one-time majority leader (my how the mighty have fallen) Trent Lott (r-MS), who announced this past Monday that he plans to resign before the end of the year… (good riddance…)

Heckle: to speaking before all the facts are in. It’s fairly well-known that violence has dropped a bit in Iraq this month, but US military commanders, along with other Iraq experts, are walking a fine line and have weary to begin declaring victory as Iraq is still “going nowhere” in political terms… but that hasn’t stopped cheerleaders John McCain (r-AZ) and Joe Lieberman (I r -CT), from declaring victory… the two of them are so blind by Bush’s spin and rhetoric, that any intelligent person is going to ignore anything and everything they say about the war… except the tools that continue voting for these empty shirts…
