The Thursday ‘BushWhack’ing

One day until Friday… yay.

  • Amid growing concerns about the health of the U.S. economy, the (hastily falling) dollar "marked a milestone" in Japan as it fell below 100 yen for the first time in 12 years... but we're not headed for a recession... our economy is stro- hahahahahahaha, I knew I wouldn't be able to say that with a straight face...
  • As if the Eliot Spitzer story couldn’t get more tabloid-ish, now we (gasp!) have the identity of the hooker… I mean prostitute… I mean call girl… whatever… the whole saga has me saying; meh.
  • Florida is still whining about their votes and delegates not being counted and state Dems are trying to devise ways to have their votes matter. (Again, I say to them – next time, abide by the damn rules. It’s not a hard concept, even five-year olds can abide by the rules…)
  • Former VP candidate – and based on your opinions; certified racist or certifiable senile old coot – Geraldine Ferraro has stepped down from her position in Sen. Clinton’s campaign.
  • Sen. Obama has increased his delegate lead
  • Here’s another headline that writes the snark itself; “Kevorkian to run for office”… I don’t know what kind of a Congressman he would be, but I bet his campaign would kill… sorry, had to be done.
  • The Senate is poised to vote on a one-year earmark ban and the three presidential candidates are interrupting their campaign schedules so they can get to DC and vote on the high-profile measure. (It should be noted that this would be one of the first votes that McCain has attended since his campaign began in earnest. Nice to see him care about his constituents back home so much. Yes Virginia, that was sarcasm…)
  • And have we mentioned? That “President” Bush still doesn’t get it? Speaking to the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce yesterday, Bush said; “…I think when people take a look back at this moment in our economic history, they’ll recognize tax cuts work.” (I sincerely doubt that anyone – except possibly that 19% of people that, inexplicably, still think Bush is doing a good job – will view this current time frame, read: Bush’s time in office, as a success in economic terms… and can someone please wake the president up and tell him that the recession is here and that it’s his fault? Thanks…)
