Please God, Don't Let Them Make Her The Nominee

Unless the Democratic Party wants to lose yet another presidential election--but this time because no one will vote for the candidate.

  Impeach Cheney

More reasons why, as if more were needed.

Of course, if that stood a serious chance of happening, Cheney would have declared martial law by now.

Whitman: The Plot Thickens

Who made her tell New Yorkers that the air was safe to roam around in after 9/11?

We know now who caused her to quit, because:
In a groundbreaking article today by the Washington Post, the paper alleges that Whitman left the Administration because they pressured her to accept pro-industry coal power plant rules which threatened ghoulish levels of air pollution.
Who was bringing that pressure? Cheney.

  A Simple Accounting Error

That's the reason I'd give that this crazy old man(above) who isn't in the Executive Branch has been mistaken for the Vice President all these years.

But there's an easy remedy:
cut off the funding for his office. Then he can go back to yelling at kids to get the fuck off his lawn.

Cheney Abdicates All Authority

What else can one make of his claim that the office of the VP is not part of the executive branch?

So basically he's just this crazy old man who, for some reason, has been allowed to make policy? Congress should definitely do something about this terrible misunderstanding.

Bloomberg Leaves GOP

The mayor of New York(who, unlike Giuliani--who till 9/11 was one of NYC's most-loathed mayors--actually had to manage what 9/11 did to New York) has announced he has left the Republican party and has declared as an independent.

Now all he has to do is wait a little while longer while the GOP candidates continue to destroy one another.


  Ignoring Karl

A beautiful, musical quote:
"What's the penalty now, Karl being mad at you?" Republican pollster Tony Fabrizio asked with a laugh, referring to Bush political adviser Karl Rove. "Who cares? Even his former chief strategist (Matthew Dowd) walked away from him and pissed all over him."

  OJ's Confession


Now I was standing in Nicole's courtyard, in the dark, listening to the loud, rhythmic, accelerated beating of my own heart. I put my left hand to my heart and my shirt felt strangely wet. I looked down at myself. For several moments, I couldn't get my mind around what I was seeing. The whole front of me was covered in blood, but it didn't compute. Is this really blood? I wondered. And whose blood is it? Is it mine? Am I hurt?

Scalia Hearts Jack Bauer

So you think that 24 is harmless entertainment? Well, Antonin Scalia thinks it's a basis on which to make Supreme Court decisions. (hat tip to Andrew Sullivan)
"Jack Bauer saved Los Angeles. ... He saved hundreds of thousands of lives," Judge Scalia said. Then, recalling Season 2, where the agent's rough interrogation tactics saved California from a terrorist nuke, the Supreme Court judge etched a line in the sand.
"Are you going to convict Jack Bauer?" Judge Scalia challenged his fellow judges. "Say that criminal law is against him? 'You have the right to a jury trial?' Is any jury going to convict Jack Bauer? I don't think so...

Even if a real terrorist who suffered mistreatment is released because of complaints of abuse, Judge Scalia said, the interruption to the terrorist's plot would have ensured "in Los Angeles everyone is safe." During a break from the panel, Judge Scalia specifically mentioned the segment in Season 2 when Jack Bauer finally figures out how to break the die-hard terrorist intent on nuking L.A. The real genius, the judge said, is that this is primarily done with mental leverage. "There's a great scene where he told a guy that he was going to have his family killed," Judge Scalia said. "They had it on closed circuit television - and it was all staged. ... They really didn't kill the family."

  Saving Us From Ourselves?

It reeks of Tony Blair's staff trying, after the fact, to cover its ass and look the peacemaker, but this is undeniably interesting:

In comments printed in advance in the Daily Mirror tabloid on Monday, Christopher Meyer said that fear explained why Prime Minister Tony Blair chose to stand with US President George W. Bush in his decision to invade Afghanistan in the immediate aftermath of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks -- to temper his aggressive battle plans.

"Blair's real concern was that there would be quote unquote 'a knee-jerk reaction' by the Americans ... they would go thundering off and nuke the shit out of the place without thinking straight," Meyer reported told the documentary, according to the Mirror.

And tried to shut it up. More from Sy Hersh here. Also a CNN interview with Hersh here.
"...They were told in memos what the photographs showed... They showed other, more sexual abuse than we knew, sodomy of women prisons by American soldiers, a father and his son forced to do acts together. There was more stuff [than] was made public. You didn't need a photograph if you had a verbal description of it.

"It's quite implicit," he added. "They knew very quickly this was bad."

  Jesus Is My Editor - The Creation Museum Needs A Proofreader
Jesus' General finds a fascinating slip in the Creation Museum's promotional literature, given that the Creationists believe the universe is 6-10,000 years old:
Each seat is a rocket launching pad in our Stargazers Planetarium. Prepare for lift-off. The digital projector showcases a spectacular gravity-defying spaceflight, a thrilling 22-minute ride billions of light years away to the vast outer regions of our universe. Breathtaking images and inconceivable distances make this cosmic journey under the dome a fully engaging experience.

I'm confused... Billions of "light years away" suggests God was doing a whole lot of other stuff before he got around to us. Yer just trying to keep us on our toes, right?

Apparently, the Creation Museum's staff don't realize that, in addition to being a measure of distance, a light year also implies time having passed. It's the distance light takes to travel in a year. If we see the light of a star one billion light years away, that means we're looking at its light as it was one billion years ago. In some ways looking at stars is looking back in time.

If that much time has passed, then the universe has existed at least that long. Oops! Unless they're old earth creationists. But if they were, they wouldn't feel the need to pretend humans and dinosaurs lived side by side.

By the way, looking through the above-linked "about" page, I was particularly interested in the quiet scientific objectivity displayed by this:
Walk through the Cave of Sorrows and see the horrific effects of the Fall of man. Sounds of a sin-ravaged world echo through the room. Finally, see the sacrificial Lamb on the cross, and the hope of redemption.
Fun for the whole family! Although, for some kids, I guess it could be more fun than a petting zoo. Particularly if it's a real lamb.

  Why The LA Sheriff Tried To Let Hilton Go

Might have had something to do with the campaign contribution he got from her family.

One point this has brought out that actually matters is the inequity of Hilton's treatment: if she'd been black, or poor or both, or really anyone but a white, blonde celebrity, her ass would be in jail for a very long time. This letter at Salon brings home why it's at all important that this waste of DNA go to jail:
Jail conditions will never improve as long as rich, white people think there is no chance that they will ever go to jail. The way to improve publicize bad conditions is to put the people with money and influence in the same jail as everybody else when they break the law. If Mimsy Soccermom gets a staph infection and six weeks of baloney sandwiches when she cheats on her taxes, then Mimsy will mount a campaign to overhaul the jail system. Mimsy doesn't care how badly poor black folks are treated when they get arrested for having a nickel bag in the car, because "those people" might as well live on another planet as far as she's concerned.

Try Not To Swallow

An example of the amazingly blatant racism that is Fox & Friends, which is probably the most repulsive show on Fox. I swear, it's like watching the preppies in high school joking among themselves.

Lest anyone forget that Fox is a coordinated psy-ops strategy, not a news network, the hit job on John Edwards continues on Hannity & Colmes, below.

I'm wondering, are they trying to imply he's a communist? How quaint. I feel all nostalgic.

9/11--The GOP's Woodstock

And the nostalgia they feel is evident from this published quote from the chairman of the Arkansas Republican party:

"At the end of the day, I believe fully the president is doing the right thing, and I think all we need is some attacks on American soil like we had on [Sept. 11, 2001]," Milligan said to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, "and the naysayers will come around very quickly to appreciate not only the commitment for President Bush, but the sacrifice that has been made by men and women to protect this country."
Say, wouldn't an attack on American soil merely prove Bush is no protection? Ah well. Nice to see Republicans fantasizing about the murder of Americans. Wonder how this stupid piece of shit would feel if the attack were on his office? But that wouldn't happen because nobody gives a shit about Arkansas. (and besides, as a Republican official, he'd receive advance warning just like the president did before 9/11) As the chairman well knows, any such attack would be well away from him, upon someplace that actually matters. Upon people, unlike himself, who actually matter.
