The Monday ‘BushWhack’ing

The week begins…

  • This headline can be filed under; No shit Sherlock; “Bush's peace dream iffy for '08, Olmert says” (Bush’s attempt to enmsure peace in the Middle East by 2008 was a desperate attempt to not only soothe the harm he did by virtually ignoring the process for five six seven years, but also an attempt to help shape his legacy. Fail)
  • A senior Bush(whacked) Administration official said this morning that the deficit for this year is going to set a record high, easily breaking the previous record also held by this administration. Blaming the sagging economy and the stimulus checks which were supposed to help the non-recession but still lagging economy, the deficit is approaching $490 billion… (Chalk the deficit up as another thing the new president – regardless of party – will have to fix. Adding to a list that already includes the US’ standing in the world, the environment, the Constitution, national security and, well, pretty much everything that “President” Bush has ever touched. As Tony Soprano suggested, he’s like a reverse Midas…everything he touches turns to shit…)
  • Sen. Obama’s Euro Trip was a resounding success, and the more Sen. McCain and his surrogates criticize it, the more his campaign sounds like a whiny little baby
  • Ben Stein says Sen. McCain’s campaign needs Karl Rove… (Um… didn’t Ben Stein passed his political usefulness a LONG time ago, right around the Watergate era? Why he has suddenly decided to jump back into the political arena is anyone’s guess… but in my eyes, he will always be the teacher in ‘Ferris Bueller’… nothing more, nothing less)
  • Former White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan has made the earth-shattering revelation (it’s earth shattering if you don’t have the use of your own brain) that Fox “News” uses talking points that the White House sends… (Nooooooo. Reallllllyyyy? I never would have guessed… it’s so hard to express sarcasm in the written form)
  • CNN asks “Did McCain flip on Affirmative Action?” (Well, considering they’re asking it of McCain, I’m going to go out on a limb and say yes…)
  • And have we mentioned? That Vice President Dick Cheney has apparently worn out his welcome with a group that supported him at one time? The Disabled Veterans of America revoked their invitation to Cheney to speak at its convention next month because the group feels that Cheney’s security demands were “Draconian and unreasonable” including demanding that the veterans (who are sick and/or disabled) be sequestered for two hours before Cheney’s arrival without the ability to leave or even go to the bathroom and then couldn’t leave the room until after he had finished talking… (Sad and pathetic… but not surprising. Cheney doesn’t care who he inconveniences, as long as HE gets what HE wants…)
