The Friday ‘BushWhack’ing

What else needs to be said other than; TGIF!

  • Proving once again why they have the best political team on TV (SARCASM ALERT!), CNN has a story with the earth-shattering news that both Sen. Obama and Sen. McCain are vying for the blue-collar vote… never mind that they’ve both been doing that since each campaign had started, but it’s new news to CNN…
  • The fallout from McCain surrogate “Dr. Phil” Gramm’s statement that the American people are “whiners” continues. While McCain himself tries to backpedal from Gramm’s comments, Obama is slamming the McCain campaign, Gramm is trying, and failing spectacularly, to explain himself. (McCain has flip-flopped on this issue so much alone, that I’m surprised he hasn’t hurt himself…)
  • German officials have a problem with Obama speaking near the Brandenburg Gate… (time to ask what everyone is thinking but not saying; would they have the same problem if it were McCain? I’m just askin’…)
  • McCain’s campaign says the RNC has twice the money as the DNC… um, okay?
  • Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) introduced an article of impeachment against “President” Bush yesterday for “high crimes and misdemeanors” and “deceiving Congress with fabricated threats of Iraq WMDs to fraudulently obtain support for an authorization of the use of military force against Iraq.” (Again it will fall on deaf ears on the Hill, but isn’t it nice that someone is keeping the link of Bush and impeachment alive and well? Perhaps it’s only a matter of time)
  • Can anyone explain how Karl Rove can ignore a House Judiciary committee subpoena? And don’t give me ‘executive privilege’ nonsense, it doesn’t pertain here and never has…
  • And have we mentioned? That the Bush(whacked) Administration hates the environment? But you knew that already didn’t you? Despite pressure from SCOTUS along with broad agreement among senior federal officials that new regulations of greenhouse gas emissions is appropriate now, the administration decided to NOT take any new steps to regulate emissions before “President” Bush leaves office. Instead, the EPA will announce that it will “seek months of further public comment on the threat posed by global warming” instead… (Great, just what we need; more research and less action. Though that does define this administration to a ‘T’…)
