The Monday ‘BushWhack’ing

Another week starts… can you stand the excitement?

  • Rep. Peter Hoekstra (r-MI), along with Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), appeared on CNN the other day and warned against war with Iran… with republican Hoekstra saying; “Iran is not Iraq. And going in there militarily would be, from my perspective, a huge mistake.” (If a republican is saying this… what the hell does that tell you?)
  • Thanks to the media, ReverendGate just won’t go away…
  • Sen. Obama says race isn’t an issue in this campaign… and for that matter, neither should sex… Age on the other hand is a whole different kettle of fish…
  • Hope you’re not sick of campaign ads, because the candidates have already spent $110 million on TV ads to this point, with an assurance of many, many more on the way.
  • The Bush(whacked) Administration is opposing a housing bailout plan brought up by Congressional Democrats because… well… because it will help people that don’t give money to republicans… so why should THEY care?
  • I know we’ve already mentioned it, but it’s too stupid to not bring it up again… Sen. McCain was in NOLA last Thursday and said that the US government failed New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina… too bad he didn’t say anything when the hurricane was actually, you know, destroying New Orleans… instead he was enjoying a photo-op with “President” Bush… Dumbass….
  • House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-SC) and arguably the most powerful African-American in Congress, has again laid a smack-down on former President Bill Clinton, saying that Clinton’s recent comments have been ‘bizarre.’ Earlier this election cycle Clyburn told Clinton to “chill-out” instead of consistently opening his mouth when he clearly shouldn’t. (I have to agree with Mr. Clyburn. Mr. Clinton continues to drag down the campaign of Sen. Clinton by opening his mouth and saying things that should best be left unsaid. Perhaps he needs to go home and watch some TV and leave the campaigning to Ms. Clinton… I’m just sayin’)
  • The Pentagon has ceased its practice of using plants on network TV… (Uh-huh, we’ll see…)
  • The Supreme Court ruled earlier today that states “can require voters to produce photo identification without violating their constitutional rights, validating Republican-inspired voter ID laws.” The case, which was decided on a 6-3 vote, concerned Indiana’s voter ID law, barely a week before that’s presidential primary. (quick show of hands, which party does this help?)
  • And have we mentioned? That Bush should stick to his day job, which is a thoroughly frightening concept in and of itself? The “President” appeared at the White House Correspondents' dinner Saturday night and tried to make jokes at all three of the candidates’ expense. Let’s just say that his joke telling is worse than his military strategy and leave it at that…
