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.

Exit Stage Right 

By now, it's likely you've seen the video of Bush bolting for the door at his recent press briefing in China. Sure it's embarassing to try to open locked doors on camera. The expression on his face kind of reminded me of Wile E. Coyote's "Oh, shit" expression when he realizes he is going to be the victim of his own most recent, elaborate scheme to nail the Road Runner. What's more embarassing is that a real man would not abruptly end a press briefing when the questions become uncomfortable. To say this smacks of petulance is an understatement. Of course, this is not the first time Bush just unceremoniously ended a meeting with the press. When Key Lay was indicted and Bush was asked about it, he simply turned and walked away. The MSM continues to cover for him, however. Locally, KCRA Channel 3 out of Sacramento showed the video of Bush trying unsuccessfully to exit stage right. Of course, the audio which led up to his not-so-great escape was not played so as not to give the audience the true nature of circumstances which precipitated this "cut and run."

BTW, the GOP talking point that democrats "voted for the war" has permeated the media as evidence by Tim Russert's and Jay Leno's use of this phrasing. This is, quite obviously, a mischaracterization of the resolution voted upon by Congress. These guys are extraordinary propagandists and one must be constantly on guard so as to not be taken in.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!!

Rewrite this history, dumbass! 

"This revisionist notion that somehow this is now the core of why we went to war, a central issue of why we went to war, a fundamental underpinning of the president's decisions, is a bunch of bull," White House spokesman Ari Fleischer said Monday.

Many Democrats are accusing the White House of misleading the American people in the State of the Union address. But Bush said, "When I gave the speech, the line was relevant."

He said, "Our country made the right decision" in taking military action to depose Saddam, and that he is confident evidence of Iraqi efforts to develop nuclear, chemical and biological weapons will emerge.

"I think the intelligence I get is darn good intelligence, and the speeches I have given were backed by good intelligence," Bush said. "And I am absolutely confident today, like I was when I gave the speeches, that Saddam Hussein developed a program of weapons of mass destruction."

Do you suppose that during the 1930's, as Germany was being transformed into a fascist, Nazi regime, those who spoke out against the policies of the government and the demonization of the Jews were called the "blame Germany first" crowd?

Bush's Veteran's Day Speech 

Metaphor 1: "No Buyer's Remorse"

A used car salesman convinces you that the car you're buying is in good condition. He shows you a vehicle inspection by a mechanic that shows the car is in good condition, except for he's got his thumb over the part about the cracked block and the opinion of a second mechanic that the car will be nothing but trouble. You find out that it's a lemon, the salesman knew all along the car was a dog and had purposefully placed his thumb over information that would have altered your buying decision. So, you want your money back. The salesman refuses claiming you thought it was a good deal when you made it and you saw the same "inspection" that he did.

Metaphor 2: "The Animal House Defense"

D-Day: Hey, quit your blubberin'. When I get through with this baby you won't even recognize it.

Otter: Flounder, you can't spend your whole life worrying about your mistakes! You fucked up - you trusted us! Hey, make the best of it! Maybe we can help.

Flounder: [crying] That's easy for you to say! What am I going to tell Fred?

Otter: I'll tell you what. We'll tell Fred you were doing a great job taking care of his car, but you parked it out back last night and in the morning, it was gone. We report it to the police, D-Day takes care of the wreck, the insurance company buys your brother a new car.

Flounder: Will that work?

Otter: Hey, it's gotta work better than the truth.

Details of Plan Implementation:

Who's Paying For These Increasingly Elaborate Propoganda Backdrops? 

GWB never appears in front of camera without some sort of staging. Today, at the National Institute of Health, behind him was an elaborate backdrop. Now, someone has to be paying for all these backdrops and my guess is that it's the American taxpayer. I'd venture to guess that in the last five years, the propoganda budget for backdrops alone is well into 6 figures. One also has to wonder which contributor or crony is being paid to produce these backdrops.

They waste money like it's going out of style yet won't raise the minimum wage, cut subsidies for low-income families to heat their homes, won't furnish the troops with proper equipment, and have the most pork-ridden budget in recent history.

The GOP is the RED INK PARTY as well as the party that condones treason.
