The Wednesday ‘BushWhack’ing

Hump day… ‘nuff said.

  • More primaries yesterday… and like his clean sweep on Saturday – Sen. Obama has shown his chops once again by sweeping all three contests yesterday, which also put him ahead in the delegate count… stay tuned.
  • Oh yeah, and Sen. McCain swept the gop primaries yesterday… meh.
  • On the heels of Sen. Clinton firing her first campaign manager, her deputy campaign manager resigned yesterday... (Clinton’s campaign seems to be imploding before our eyes… six contests in under seven days and her performance in all has been, shall we say, less than stellar. It’s hard to see how her campaign can get back on track at all, but her staff is having her focus on Texas’ primary. If she has another poor outing, expect some people in the Democratic party to push for her to step aside so Obama can focus on the republicans… stay tuned.)
  • Having solved all other problems, Roger Clemens is in front of the House talking about steroids… I understand that steroids are bad and need to be stopped, but I fail to see how this, or for that matter SpyGate on the NFL side, are a problem for Congress… shouldn’t they be focusing on more important things like, I don’t know… FISA… terrorism… the US economy…
  • Seeing how the Senate folded like origami on telecom immunity, “President” Bush is urging the House to follow suit… which is HIGHLY unlikely.
  • House Democratic leaders are planning to force a vote this week looking to hold Josh Bolten and Harriet Miers in contempt of Congress since they refused to comply with earlier subpoenas stemming from the U.S. attorneys probe. (they’ve flirted with this before, only to either chicken out or – conveniently – run out of time. So I’m gonna wait and see what happens before I start tossing out accolades…)
  • And have we mentioned? That Karl Rove is blaming the sad state of the economy on the media? Seems he was interviewed by Bill “want to see my microphone?” O’Reilly on Fox “News” and said; “I think the economy — the media has been beating the drum for years and years and years that the economy stinks. And after a while, that begins to color people’s attitudes.” (Yeah… it’s the media’s fault and has nothing to do with Iraq, or oil or Bush… give me a fucking break Karl, you truly need to take off the rose-colored glasses and stop drinking the kool-aid and see the world for what it is. The media is to blame for a lot in our society, but the recession is something that can NOT be pinned on them. It’s your boy, his policies, and his administration – you included – that did this to us… so STFU Karl and get a life. BTW, he also blamed Bush’s crappy approval ratings on the media… uh-huh)
