The Thursday ‘BushWhack’ing

The weekend is nigh…

  • House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) says the race for the Democratic presidential nomination is “alive and well” and must continue as, in her opinion (and MINE), either Democrat would make a great president… certainly better than the current one and the gop nominee… so let’s get crackin people!
  • Time magazine has a list of the “Five mistakes Clinton Made.” (Only five… oddly enough, ‘hiring Mark Penn’ is absent from the list, and I would call that the big one)
  • “President” Bush said yesterday that Cuba's post-Fidel leadership has made only “empty gestures at reform” and rejected calls for easing of U.S. restrictions on the communist island… (cuz they’ve done oh-so-much, right? Yes, that was sarcasm. The restrictions on Cuba have done nothing from a historical or political standpoint. Designed to oust Castro from power, they did no such thing, so what’s the point? Perhaps eliminating the restrictions would allow for more drastic changes in the nation…)
  • Bowing to pressure from House republicans, House Democratic leaders delayed a vote on a $195 billion measure last night that would have not only paid for the war in Iraq but would have also provided educational help to veterans and relief for the jobless…
  • Sen. McCain vows to fight “evil” if elected... (good to know, I though he would have fought FOR evil if elected. He is a republican after all…)
  • Pentagon records show; “More than 43,000 U.S. troops listed as medically unfit for combat in the weeks before their scheduled deployment to Iraq or Afghanistan since 2003 were sent anyway.” (This should end well…)
  • John Bolton was interviewed on Fox “News” yesterday afternoon (which is like the 20th time this week for crissakes) and was asked by host Martha McCallum; “Can you imagine a scenario where President Bush would do that [bomb Iran] before the end of his term?” Bolton’s response; “I think so, definitely.” (I told you, this administration wont be happy until they get us into war with Iran… what part of ‘military stretched to its limit’ do they NOT understand??)
  • And have we mentioned? That Council on Foreign Relations Senior Fellow Max Boot has not only drank a TON of Bush kool-aid but is also, apparently, certifiable? He’s been lauding the “success” of the surge in Iraq all week and said in an online debate yesterday that Iraq has met two-thirds of the original 18 benchmarks, that the government’s offensive in Basra was successful, and that the so-called Sons of Iraq will always remain loyal to the Shiite-controlled Iraqi state. He then concluded his spiel by conceding that there are walls separating Sunni neighborhoods from Shia, but dismissed the fact by saying; “It’s true that there are walls around Dora and other Baghdad neighborhoods. … But then there are walls around many gated communities in the U.S. too.” (Yeah… they’re roughly the same thing… what a dumbass. To compare a wall separating two groups that at times are hostile to each other to a gated community in the US shows that you’re an idiot that doesn’t understand the nuances of the various groups in Iraq – a common thread conservative circles…)

I don't care who the dems pick, as long as they get that shit done soon!

At this point I'm pretty sure the reanimated corpse of Orville Reddenbacher would be a better president than John McCain (aka Abe Simpson).
