The Wednesday ‘BushWhack’ing

The day after… next stop; West Virginia.

  • Obama won North Carolina (handily) and Clinton won Indiana (narrowly)
  • An aide to Ms. Clinton says she lent her campaign $6.4 million over the past month, more than doubling, after giving $5 million earlier this year, her personal investment in her bid for the Democratic nod...
  • It’s happened again, more than 20% of those who voted in the republican primary in Indiana yesterday voted for someone other than McCain… still want to tell me the republicans are more unified? Seems they have as big a problem as the Dems do, yet no one is paying attention nor acting to change that. Stay tuned.
  • Moratorium on the media for the rest of the campaign season – who’s with me???
  • Former Vice President Al Gore says he still may endorse a nominee… (Sigh… I respect you Mr. Gore, but either endorse or get off the stage, you’re not helping matters any with your rhetoric of ‘I might…’ You want to help, convince the one with no mathematical chance to NOT stage a floor fight at the convention…)
  • Clinton is vowing to trudge on but her aides see a large uphill battle...
  • Vice President Dick “President” Cheney’s COS, David Addington, has been subpoenaed by the House Judiciary Committee as part of its investigation into the treatment of suspected terrorists. (And I’m sure he’ll answer every question without hesitation and honestly… and if you believe that, I have a bridge to sell you in Baghdad)
  • Ignoring “President” Bush’s vow of a veto (which is what one should do to a lame-duck president with approval ratings in the crapper) Democratic House leaders unveiled legislation yesterday that funds the war with conditions on withdrawing U.S. troops from Iraq…(White House spin of how Democrats don’t support the troops in five, four, three…)
  • According to court documents filed this week, the Bush(whacked) Administration has not been able to find disaster recovery files for White House e-mails from a three-month period in 2003, which raises the possibility that messages sent before and after the invasion of Iraq may never be recovered… (And this isn’t a criminal act, how??? Not to go all tin-foil hat here, but this reeks so much of a cover-up, that it’s hard to believe it wasn’t lifted from a bad espionage movie…)
  • The House of Representatives is going to begin debate today on a sweeping housing rescue bill that could see the government “buy up $15 billion of abandoned homes.” The bill would also help half million homeowners facing foreclosure by offering “fresh spending, tax credits and a new government guarantee on many risky loans to bolster the national housing market.” Naturally, because it helps the average American, Bush has threatened to veto it… way to show you care George… ya putz.
  • How is Rush Limbaugh NOT being investigated for election tampering or election fraud?
  • And have we mentioned? That Sen. McCain is trying to woo the conservative base with a pledge of conservative judge appointments? Apparently McCain’s people are the only ones who have noticed that close to a quarter of those voting in the last few republican primaries DIDN’T vote for the presumptive nominee, so they’re working to combat that… (my question though is, with his advanced age, will he remember his pledge? I doubt it…)
