Smearing the Wilsons and Sliming America


"In watching their behavior, we see a parallel with the devotees of Jim Jones, who gathered in Guyana almost 30 years ago to drink poisoned kool aid."

Has Bush gone the edge?

An increasing number of Republicans, ranging from former conservative Congressman Joe Scarborough to former President George H.W. Bush, worry that President George W. Bush's tenuous hold on reality is slipping away and the leader of the free world may be sliding into a full-fledged mental breakdown. Scarborough sounded the warning recently when he devoted an episode of his MSNBC talk show to the topic "Is Bush an Idiot?" Other published reports say even Bush's own father is worried about his son's mental state. Psychiatrists who have observed Bush during his presidency share this concern.

The Plame Blame Game keeps on ticking...

Yes, I agree Bush has been Over the Edge for awhile now...

In regards to November elections...

from MSNBC:

"At first glance, the economy's role in this year's midterm elections is a puzzle. Economic growth and unemployment are at levels that in past years would have been a clear political asset for the party in power.

But one layer down in the statistics, the answer is more clear. Flat wages and rising debt nationally have converged to leave millions of middle-class households feeling acutely vulnerable to bumps in their financial planning. The most visible of these are rising energy prices and a softening housing market.

A less obvious but powerful variable is the interest paid by people carrying credit card debt or mortgages whose monthly payments vary with interest rates.
People buffeted by these trends have given rise to a new and volatile voting block."

"A submarine could take this place out."

Subversive, bored Bush and Karl reveals himself:

"'You're not such a scary guy,' joked his guide. 'Yes, I am,' Rove replied. Walking away, he muttered deliberately and loudly: 'I change constitutions, I put churches in schools.'"

Such classy people we've put in charge, eh?

A friend from Australia sends some Steve Irwin famous quotes. She says her nation deeply grieves. I can well imagine. Bro...One of my favorite shows of his was "surfing and snakes". He was great on the large Bali waves, the lip smashing joyful Aussie aggro fearless style.

===================================

When I see what's happened all over the world, they're looking at me as this
very popular, wildlife warrior, Australian bloke....
... And yet back here in my own country some people find me a little bit
embarrassing.

***
Crikey, mate. You're far safer dealing with crocodiles and western
diamondback rattlesnakes than the executives and the producers and all those
sharks in the big MGM building.

***
I bled a lot. I got hit across the face. We couldn't film for seven days. I
got whacked, underwater, across the face. I finished the shot, got into the
boat and blood started coming out.

***
I get called an adrenaline junkie every other minute, and I'm fine with
that.

***
I'm high as a kite, mate.
I'm flat out like a lizard drinking, all the time.
You know I have trouble just sitting here...
You know ... I'm just like .... got to get up...

***
I would never blame an animal if it bit me, because I'm at fault, not them.
I heal so quickly.
If you cut my arm off I would grow a new one.....

***
I have no fear of losing my life.
If I have to save a koala or a crocodile or a kangaroo or a snake, mate, I
will save it.

Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening folks!

Happy Tuesday!

The media has nothing to do but smear the Wilsons.. Of course, this is a political agenda for the Gerbil to discredit the Wilsons.. The Gerbil and company are going smearing the Wilson because they are simply afraid of Joe Wilson.. It is because Joe Wilson will not cave in to pure bulliness, intimidation, and crapola that the Administration is throwing to him and his wife. They know the public is questioning the entire Administration about the leak case and about the Gerbil as the President.. The bulliness and intimidation that the Administration is doing to the Wilsons are no different to what they are doing to Fitz and his case. The Administration are like snakes: they will do everything and anything to bring down the three people who will stand up to the Administration and hold them accountable: Joe Wilson, Valerie Wilson, and Patrick Fitzgerald... Otherwise, the spin on Armitage and the garbage Faux news like articles of Fitz and the Wilsons by the MSM are nothing but yesterday's news...

Forgot to mention... Rest in peace, Steve Irwin. A great humanitarian, had a great passion and love for animals, and lived his life to the fullest with no regrets. I hope people will remember him like that. He was full of life lessons..

Cheers!

US toughens passport rules, required for entry from Canada, Mexico

The Department of Homeland Security and Congress have moved to make entering the United States more restrictive by requiring passports to be used for travel from the Caribbean to the US, Todya's Wall Street Journal reports.
The new rules begin January 8th, when citizens entering the US from the Caribbean by air or sea will be required to hold US passports. In January 2008, the same requirement will be put in place for travellers entering the United States by car from Canada or Mexico.


Condi takes historical analogies to an absurd level


The new White House line: Iraq war critics would have tolerated slavery. Referencing Iraq, Secretary Rice said: “I know there were people who said, ‘Why don’t we get out of this now, take a peace with the South, but leave the South with slaves?‘”

Now, I know that Rice, like much of today's Republican Party, is desperate. I realize that this appears to be a challenging campaign cycle for the GOP, and they're willing to engage in whatever demagoguery necessary to survive the next 10 weeks.
But to suggest, out loud, on the record, that critics of the war in Iraq are similar to those who would approve of slavery is perhaps the most breathtakingly stupid remark ever uttered by a Bush administration official. And given the competition, that's no easy feat.

Ironically, Rice was supposed to be the level-headed one. Just today, Eugene Robinson complemented the Secretary of State for her less-reckless language — while Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld were drawing on Nazi analogies, Rice also appeared before the American Legion convention and simply referred to the enemy in the war on terrorism as "violent extremists," which, as Robinson noted, "sounds so 2006."
But Rice's decision to use reasonable rhetoric apparently didn't last. Also note the choice of publications: Rice didn't use the Iraq opponents = slavery supporters argument on Meet the Press; she used it in an interview with Essence magazine, which has predominantly African-American readers. It's about as subtle as a sledgehammer — Rice was effectively telling black voters, "Democratic criticism of the war is analogous to opposition to the Civil War. Unless you like slavery, vote Republican."
Maybe Rice thought that Essence's circulation is small enough that these comments wouldn't cause a stir. Maybe she no longer cares. Either way, the Secretary of State needs to apologize for her inanity.

Top o' the morning JBs and FBs...Marc Ash has a very interesting article posted on "truthout" this a.m. relative to the Plame investigation and how the MSM has their undies in a knot. Worth a look.

SPB...I think the American public is slowly wisening up to these fearmongers. They have little credibility for their ranting! These idiots have made us less safe with their warmongering and "pre-emptive strikes" aka invasion of a country without provocation.

Grandmanuk:

I read Marc Ash's article this morning.. As he said, the leak case is a nongoing investigation.. Fitzgerald and the Wilsons knew that when they challenged the Gerbil Administration and seek for the truth and hold them accountable, they knew they will be consequences to their decision. They knew that the MSM and the Administration would smear them. It os nothing more of a scare tactic. I am glad that jourmalists like Marc Ash, Larry Johnson, Jason Leopold and others are quite aware of the backlash and want to see this case through...

The American people have wised up to the Administration because they now see the Gerbil and the Administration for what they are...
