A tribute to Condoleeza Rice and George W. Bush who, despite voluminious evidence to the contrary, said, "I don't think anybody could have predicted that these people would take an airplane and slam it into the World Trade Center, take another one and slam it into the Pentagon, that they would try to use an airplane as a missile," adding that "even in retrospect" there was "nothing" to suggest that" and "I don't think anyone anticipated the breach of the levees," respectively.

Arnold's Product Placement Update 

It looks like the mild criticism about Arnold's blatant product placement for big contributors has led to the deep-sixing of the offending ad. In his retooled version, he attacks public employees' labor unions as the cause for California's fiscal problems.

What he doesn't do is examine how the contrived energy crisis of 2001 has had a dampening effect on California's economy. We're still paying inflated prices thanks to Enron and the Bush Administration's failure to stop the rape of California.

The high energy costs also affect businesses, large and small. But what's he done about that. Has he demanded that FERC void the contracts which Gray Davis signed under duress?

Anyway, clearly visible in his new ad is a large Coca-Cola banner or vending machine. Was this intentional or was he just giving equal time to Coke after the freebie he gave to Pepsico?

This is a governor who has been bought by big business interests. Naturally he's going to attack public employee unions just like he's done with the teachers, firefighters and nurses.

It's about power and the attack on unions is a thinly-veiled attack on the financial underpinnings of the Democratic party just like GWB's attack on lawyers.

This is about survival of the two-party system.
