The Monday ‘BushWhack’ing

Monday… can you feel the excitement?

  • Sen. Clinton’s campaign refuses to die and has not only apparently borrowed some rose-colored glasses from the Bush(whacked) Administration, but more money from herself as well. The possibility of her attempting an end-around at the convention is growing. Somewhere she’s getting some horrible advice and she needs to stop for a moment and see what she’s doing to the party. And if, as Carl Bernstein suggests, she ‘fights’ for the VP nomination if when Obama wins, she will further fracture the party… it’s getting harder and harder to support her candidacy… even as a second-stringer to Obama.
  • They’re tied in the super-delegate race...
  • Jenna Bush got married over the weekend. I know, I couldn’t care less either…
  • Big shock, McCain is wavering on the environment… I know, it’s hard to believe isn’t it?
  • The amount of “Americans being secretly wiretapped” or having their records reviewed by the government is on the rise, but at the same time the “number of terrorism prosecutions ending up in court” has declined, which experts cite as trends that “the government has compromised the privacy rights of ordinary citizens without much to show for it.” (Don’t you feel safer though? Yes, that was sarcasm…)
  • All that evidence that the US has on Iran shipping weapons to Iraq’s insurgents is, per an LA Times report, not holding water. From the Times; “A plan to show some alleged Iranian-supplied explosives to journalists last week in Karbala and then destroy them was canceled after the United States realized none of them was from Iran.” (oopsies…)
  • And have we mentioned? That Congressman Roy Blunt (r-MO) has finally admitted what we already knew, that a McCain presidency would be a third Bush-term? Speaking on CNN, Blunt said to Wolf Blitzer that electing McCain would promise a third Bush term on the economy… (and with the current state of the economy, we would want more of the same; why? The Democrats need to whip-up some ads with this statement ASAP, as the economy continues to be the primary issue in this election. At least until Bush attacks Iran…)
