The Wednesday ‘BushWhack’ing

Today is the fifth anniversary of the US-led invasion of Iraq. We at TBWA honor all the brave men and women who have given their life, risked their life, and fought with valor for this unjust war…

  • Here we go again... “President” Bush said that the war in Iraq must go on for the safety of the United States. (Can we get an explanation of how? Anyone? Helloooooo?)
  • Sen. Obama’s speech yesterday is even receiving props in conservative circles… so yes, it’s now official – Hell has frozen over.
  • Sen. Clinton won the endorsement of Rep. John Murtha (D-PA)…
  • Note to Sen. Obama’s staff: make a decision on the Michigan re-vote
  • Sen. McCain screamed at a reporter yesterday that it is “common knowledge” that Iran is training al-Qaeda, only to be corrected in front of cameras by his BFF Joe Lieberman… who will be attending the republican National Convention this summer… (Quick show of hands, which is more surprising, that McCain ‘screamed’ at a reporter… that he was wrong about something regarding the Iraq war… or that Lieberman will attend the republican convention? All seem like pretty safe bets to me)
  • A federal judge has ruled that the White House has “three days to explain why it shouldn’t be required to copy its computer hard drives to ensure no further e-mails are lost.” (Claims of executive privilege in five, four, three…)
  • I know how much some of our conservative readers like when I cite polls, so here’s another one. A new CNN/Opinion Research poll finds that 71% of Americans think that government spending on the Iraq war in Iraq is partly responsible for the economic troubles in the US. (interesting results… even though Bush and other conservatives don’t see a connection between our recess– sorry, ‘economic slowdown’, and the war, a majority of Americans do… but that would require listening to the people, which republicans have trouble doing…)
  • On this, the fifth anniversary of the war, a spokesperson for the International Organization for Migration (IOM) says that “There is very little light at the end of the tunnel in Iraq’s humanitarian crisis.”
  • And have we mentioned? That for a brief moment Tuesday morning, it seemed as though pigs were going to fly? It was then that SCOTUS Justice Clarence Thomas opened his mouth and spoke… but it turned out to be much ado about nothing as he wasn’t asking a question but merely announcing the court's decision in Washington State Grange v. Washington State Republican Party. (For heavens sakes Justice Thomas, you didn’t even ask a question during a 2nd Amendment argument, the DC gun ban case… a conservative justice’s wet-dream of a case if I’ve ever heard one…)

Bush is delusional. He should be tried at an international war crimes tribunal. What I don't understand, is that there are many stupid Republican voters out there that actually want to perpetuate America's downward spiral by supporting Republican ideals!
No jobs, high gas prices, hatred from all corners of the world - all of this in one 8 year term package!
