The Tuesday ‘BushWhack’ing

It’s almost all over but the shouting…

  • Our thoughts and prayers are with Sen. Robert Byrd (D-WV) and his family.
  • The last two primaries are today… and with it should come the end of the line for at least one of the Democratic campaigns, though I’m not saying whose (cough cough Hillary). Stay tuned…
  • On what is probably the beginning of an avalanche of endorsements coming this week, House majority whip Rep. James Clyburn officially came out in support for Sen. Obama todayothers will undoubtedly follow, so stay tuned.
  • During an interview Tuesday on CNN, retired Adm. William Fallon (he who resigned back in March as leader of the U.S. military's Central Command) not only said that he wasn’t forced out because of his stance against attacking Iraq, but also that “President” Bush doesn’t want war with Iran… (Why am I having a hard time believing him?)
  • CNN’s Jack Cafferty asks the question that’s on everyone’s mind; Will Clinton exit the race gracefully… or will she have to be dragged kicking and screaming like a child going for their first hair cut? I, personally, think she will make a quick and graceful exit. Despite all the things she has done in this primary season, she still recognizes the need for her party to win in November, and she will do everything she can to help achieve that goal…
  • Vice President Dick “President” Cheney made an off-the-cuff joke the other day that implied inbreeding is common among West Virginians… he has since apologized… though I don’t think he should have been forced to. It’s a joke people, get over it. Perhaps if people in this country weren’t so thin-skinned and could take a joke, we wouldn’t be devolving into a nanny-state… but that’s just my opinion, I could be wrong
  • Sen. Kennedy is improving
  • And have we mentioned? That Vice President Cheney even thinks that Sen. McCain’s gas tax holiday is a bad idea? Said Dick; “I think it’s a false notion, in the sense that you’re not going to have much of an impact, given the size of the gasoline tax on the total cost of the gallon of gas.” (I don’t know what’s scarier, that Cheney disagrees with his party’s presumptive nominee, or that I agree with Dick Cheney… my vote is for the latter… agreeing with Cheney… there’s something downright scary about that)

Something which should have been mentioned as well:

The fact of GOP Presidential renegade Ron Paul calling for a Constitutional amendment as would use ethno-racial testing to determine citizenship eligibility.

Which is the harsh reality of the Ron Paul Revolution, methinks--closer to Nazi Germany or apartheid South Africa, when all is said and done.

Nonsense. Our President is a man who finished what he starts, and he will finish Iran, leave no doubt! What is bad for the Axis of Evil is the best thing for America.
