The Friday ‘BushWhack’ing

TGIFF…

  • TBWA’s thoughts and prayers are with Attorney General Mike Mukasey. He suffered a fainting spell (and not a stroke as earlier reports had stated) while speaking last night and was rushed to the hospital.
  • “President” Bush finally relented yesterday and signed a bill that will extend jobless benefits by at least seven weeks, something he didn’t do in September when he vetoed a similar bill… apparently a rapidly-declining economy and rapidly-declining approval numbers do wonders for some people…
  • Just when you think the “Obama is a Muslim” rumor has died down, it flares up again… give it a rest people…
  • According to aides to President-elect Obama, Sen. Clinton is “on track” for the Secretary of State job. (I will not believe any of the names for any of the Cabinet posts until I hear it directly from the leaked appointee…)
  • Soon-to-be COS Rahm Emanuel met with republican leaders up on the Hill yesterday, extending an olive branch while pushing for bi-partisanship… like above; I’ll believe it when I see it…
  • The Minnesota recount continues
  • The Bush(whacked) Administration continues to throw around “fuck you’s” to the American people, this time making changes to the Endangered Species Act that would ensure agencies will not have to take global warming into account when assessing risks to plants and animals. National Wildlife Federation’s John Kostyak says the rule would “block federal officials from considering a carbon cap” to preserve polar bear’s habitat… (With each passing day, this administration does something that will take the Obama administration years to correct… and goes to further prove that Bush is a tool)
  • And have we mentioned? That we’ve found a perfect metaphor for the political life of Gov. Sarah Palin? Palin took part in a long-standing political tradition of pardoning a Thanksgiving turkey yesterday at a turkey farm in Wasilla. After pardoning the turkey she, and this should be a surprise to ANYONE, decided to hold a presser… and while she was talking, over her left should a few feet behind her, one of the men working on the farm proceeded to well… as ThinkProgress said “Feed a turkey into a bucket.” In other words, the man was slaughtering the turkey… now while I, personally, have no problem with meat, the scene of the man killing the turkey while a clueless politician speaks is sad and pathetic, but at the same time, think about it... a turkey being slaughtered… how is that NOT a perfect metaphor for Palin’s political life???

the turkey vid is a subliminal scare-tactic... a warning to all who oppose Sarah Palin's bid for presidency in 2012
