The Monday ‘BushWhack’ing

TGIM… wait, that’s not right…

  • Our thoughts and prayers are with Sen. Ted Kenney (D-MA) and his family today as he has surgery to treat his malignant brain tumor.
  • There was a decision over the weekend, ruled on by the DNC’s Rules and Bylaws Committee, about what to do with Florida and Michigan… it was decided to seat all their delegates and to give those delegates half a vote… which is more than I would have given them. The people in those states have no one to blame but their state legislatures and the ones screaming that the DNC is ignoring them or treating them badly is preposterous. You have an issue, take it up with your state, they’re the ones that decided to shun the rules and ignore the party… and they deserve ALL of the blame.
  • There was a primary in Puerto Rico yesterday (won by Sen. Clinton) and 2 more tomorrow…
  • The problem with reverends. Sen. Obama resigned from the church where Rev. Jeremiah Wright was a pastor… this comes on the heels of comments made by Catholic priest Michael Pfleger mocked Sen. Clinton… (ya see, the key fact here is that the comments were NOT made by Obama but people who Obama knows… pretty damn stupid to hold people accountable for what others say if you ask me…)
  • Sen. McCain said he was wrong to use an image of Gen. David Petraeus in fundraising material, and vowed it “will not happen again.” (Until the next time it happens and he apologizes again…McCain, thy name is pandering)
  • The McClellan book fallout continues
  • The number of other troops in Iraq has gotten significantly lower again as all Australian troops have “ended their main combat mission” this past Sunday. Prime Minister Kevin Rudd, elected last November, had pledged during his campaign to “end his country’s frontline military role in Iraq” and he did just that… (and the number of foreign military assistance in Iraq grows ever smaller…)
  • And have we mentioned? That it’s hard for the president to draw applause… at a gop event? Appearing at the South Carolina state gop convention this past Saturday, “President” Bush was introduced by Sen. Lindsey Graham (r-SC) and when Graham first mentioned Bush’s name, the gop crowd stayed silent, refusing to applaud the President until Graham prompted a round of applause from the crowd. (Hah hah hah hah hah hah hah hah hah hah hah hah hah hah hah hah hah hah… sorry… I tried to stifle my laugh but couldn’t… it’s just so deliciously funny…)
