The Monday ‘BushWhack’ing

Another week begins… will we get news of a VP choice (or choices?) this week… stay tuned.

  • John Edwards admitted having an extramarital affair last Friday and while I in NO WAY condone such actions and ask myself what the HELL is was thinking, let us remember that republican nominee John McCain had an extramarital affair as well… while his wife was convalescing after an accident… with a MUCH younger woman… so my question for everyone attacking Edwards is this; Where’s the outrage towards McCain??
  • “President” Bush, Vice President Cheney, Sen. Obama and Sen. McCain are all voicing their support for Georgia… though Bush was relived when Cheney said he could still get peaches
  • Really CNN, a “Conspiracy of Silence”… who the hell is writing your headlines now, an out of work screenwriter for the CW network?
  • And speaking of Bush… NBC interviewed him last week after he gave a speech and expressed “deep concerns” with China’s “detention of political dissidents, human-rights advocates and religious activists.” Bob Costas brought up that speech and asked Bush about “America’s own problems.” Bush denied America has any problems and said; “First of all, I don’t see America having problems. I see America as a nation that is a world leader that has got great values.” (I would say more, but I am SO amazed he had the audacity to say that my head hurts…)
  • The secretary for Housing and Urban Development says the US is in a “housing crisis.” (aren’t ya glad that Bush surrounds himself with the best and the brightests?)
  • The ridiculous campaign ads continue, now it’s Obama’s turn with an ad that attacks McCain’s “DC celebrity” status… (Give me an effin’ break… how about an ad that speaks on, gee I don’t know – THE ISSUES?? Or is that too much to ask???)
  • And have we mentioned? That Cokie Roberts is an idiot? Need proof, consider what she said about Sen. Obama’s trip to Hawaii; “... does not make any sense whatsoever. I know his grandmother lives in Hawaii and I know Hawaii is a state, but it has the look of him going off to some sort of foreign, exotic place. He should be in Myrtle Beach, and, you know, if he's going to take a vacation at this time.” Okay… let’s see if we can help Ms. Roberts out here… Obama grew up in Hawaii… his grandmother lives there… he’s trying to campaign in all 50 states (which hasn’t been done since Nixon, and this will make number 48… so what exactly is the problem Cokie?
