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.

Today's Complaints 

Apparently, there's a news blackout by the major MSM on the Scooter Libby trial. Too bad they didn't show this same 'restraint' when it came the Scott Peterson trial or any, and I mean any, allegation made against Bill Clinton.

Also, February is a 'sweeps' month where advertising revenues are tied to viewership during the month. As has been the practice in the last few years, the networks put on 'better' or more sensational programming than during the rest of the year. Additionally, they employ the deplorable practice of hinting or saying that one of the characters on a show is about to meet his/her untimely demise to appeal to our morbid curiosity of the viewers. This probably bothers me more than it should, but so what.

Rhetorical Vomit 

What little I saw of the rhetorical vomit passing itself off as the State of the Union Address reminded me of bad sit-com writing where a punchline if delivered and then the laugh-track inserted. Here, it's the obligatory 'insert applause here' cadence of the speech with the assorted minions obligingly clapping at the appropriate time. Lord, it's difficult to watch.

Office Pool 

The Chinese government successfully destroyed one of their orbiting sattelites with a missile.

What's your guess on how long it will take for the right-wing media machine to erroneously blame this on the sale of missile guidance technology by Bill Clinton?

My guess. They already have, I've just not heard it yet.

Line Item Veto 

Bush was on the tube again today promoting the idea that Congress should give him a "line-item veto." Two things struck me about this request:

1. Bush holds himself out as a 'strict constructionist' yet this line-item veto proposal is not found in the Constitution.

2. The Supreme Court has already ruled the line-item veto as unconstitutional.
