The Tuesday ‘BushWhack’ing

Is it too early to start drinking?

  • President Clinton and Sen. Obama meeting is still making news
  • Sen. Obama is defending his patriotism this week… and doing a damn fine job of it if I may say so myself. He told a crowd in Missouri yesterday that he has “deep and abiding love for this country” and that’s one of the reasons he’s running for president… (certainly better than Sen. McCain’s reason; pancakes from the White House kitchen 24/7…)
  • Colorado could be in play this cycle…
  • “President” Bush signed a bill yesterday that not only funds the Iraq and Afghanistan wars but also strengthens the GI bill. (That would be Sen. Webb’s GI Bill that McCain opposed… but then took credit for passing, even though he didn’t vote… and then received credit from Bush, who also opposed it, for helping it pass, even though he didn’t vote… their logic makes you wonder what the hell goes on in their minds, doesn’t it?)
  • Jesus for President”?
  • A handful of Pentagon officials are worried about the “increasing likelihood” that Israel will launch an attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities “before the end of the year” and that such an action would not only have enormous security repercussions for the US and the world, but strong economic ones as well. (well, considering that every damn conservative pundit keeps going on TV saying that an attack by Israel would be a good thing, perhaps the people at the Pentagon need to check their own backyard when it comes to instigating another unjust war… just a thought)
  • And have we mentioned? That Fox “News” thinks that gas prices will plummet the moment Sen. McCain announces his running mate? (Seriously, does anything else need to be said? Announcing your choice for VP is going to cause gas prices to fall... yeah, let me know how that works out for ya)
