The Monday ‘BushWhack’ing

It’s Monday, with another slew of primaries tomorrow…

  • Using precision missiles, the US military struck a “known terrorist target” in southern Somalia this morning… stay tuned.
  • Our condolences to John and Elizabeth Edwards on the death of her father
  • In case you’ve forgotten – and the only way for that to happen would be if you lived on the moon, had your eyes closed and your fingers in your ears – there are four primaries tomorrow. Will Sen. Obama get closer to securing the nomination? Will Sen. Clinton do well or will she have a Dean-moment? Will Sen. McCain get the conservative base vote? Will Gov. Huckabee matter? Will Ron Pa—, never mind… as always; stay tuned.
  • Iranian President Ahmadinejad was traveling home after his two-day visit to Iraq and said of the United States; “No one likes them.” (Hello kettle? This is pot, you’re black…)
  • House Intelligence Chair Silvestre Reyes (D-TX) hinted over the weekend that a deal on surveillance legislation is close and that the deal may give “phone companies the retroactive legal protections long sought by President Bush.” (Lovely… I knew the Dems wouldn’t have balls for long, but not this quick… what part of lame-duck to they not understand???)
  • Karl Rove was on Fox “News” Sunday, and tried something different from the normal, run-of-the-mill republican terrorism fear-mongering… economic fear-mongering… He spewed that redeployment from Iraq would cause oil prices to shoot to $200 a barrel, saying “If we were to give up Iraq with the third largest oil reserves in the world to the control of an Al Qaeda regime or to the control of Iran, don’t you think $200 a barrel oil would have a cost to the American economy?” (and let’s not forget that the reason al Qaeda is in Iraq in the first place is because the US invaded, so essentially the reason for this happening is… all together now – BUSH… January 20, 2009 can NOT come soon enough…)
  • And have we mentioned? That Russia has a “new” president? Dmitry Medvedev won Russia’s presidential election by a landslide this past weekend, a landslide that essentially gives him a mandate of succeeding Vladimir Putin, though a 22-member observer mission from the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe said that there were “flaws” in the results which has immediately cast doubt on the fairness of the vote, so stay tuned. Unless of course the Supreme Court gets involved, than it’s all over…
