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.

"You know, they say you can tell a lot about a man by the company he keeps." George W. Bush

Why Pelosi and Conyers Are Wrong on Impeachment 

Imagine a prosecutor who has irrefutable evidence of criminal activity refusing to bring charges for fear of jury nullification after trial. That is, after being presented with 'beyond a reasonable doubt' evidence, the jury acquits the accused regardless of proof that the law was broken by the defendant. That is analogous to senate republicans voting to acquit after presentation of the multitude of crimes of the Bush/Cheney criminal enterprise.

The 2008 ad campaign virtually writes itself if the senate republicans vote along party lines to acquit. For example:

On August 15, 2007 the senate was presented with proof that President Bush and Vice-President Cheney, along with various members of the administration, embarked upon a scheme to promote an illegal invasion of the sovereign country of Iraq using lies, falsehoods, half-truths, cherry-picked information and forged documents. So far, this crime has cost the lives of over 3700 American soldiers, hundreds of thousands of Iraqis at a cost of over a ½ trillion dollars.

Yet when presented with this proof, Mitch McConnell (R-Cabbage Patch), voted for his party instead of his country. His partisanship trumps the rule-of-law. He places his loyalty to George Bush above his loyalty to his party. He has in fact violated his own oath of office to protect the Constitution and follow the laws which define us. If you believe no man is above the law or that no political party is above the law, vote for _____.

So for Pelosi and Conyers to say that impeachment is "off the table" because they would not be able to convict in the Senate may be wrong if the republicans in the senate fear the electoral repercussions of acquittal. There is already considerable speculation that the GOP will lose seats in 2008. Imagine incumbents having to answer to an already angry electorate for failing to punish George Bush and Dick Cheney.

Make the republicans prove they love their country more than the liars occupying the highest office in the land. If they don't, hammer the point home again and again that their loyalties are misguided . Especially if they happened to have also voted to convict Bill Clinton for his transgressions.

What Will I Tell My Children? 

Daddy, what's a hooker?

Daddy, what's diaper fetish?

Daddy, is a DC Madam the opposite of an AC Madam.

Daddy, is there any such thing as a AC/DC Madam.

Daddy, who's Lorena Bobbitt and why was that woman in the hideous dress crying?

Daddy, why did a gay, male prostitute visit the White House over 200 times?

Daddy, what's a hippo crit?

Pickup Truck Diplomacy Just Not Everything It's Cracked Up to Be. 

Here's an article from Kathleen Parker in Nov. 2001. I wonder if given the relationship with Russia is at its lowest point since the cold war, she might consider a revision.


Note: I ran across this 'article' when doing a search on Bush's much lauded instincts. You know, the instincts which were substituted for research, contemplation and reasoned decisions. You know, the instincts which George Will gushed were 'normally impeccable.'

So George, Which Is It? 

We were promised, among other things, that your administration would be 'transparent' in its governance. You've stated many times that nations such as North Korea and Iran have non-transparent governments and that poses a problem to the U.S., the world and to the citizens of those countries. You've said that transparency is necessary for a functioning democracy. Now, once again, your administration is trying to keep its operations secret by invoking 'executive privilege' to impede a congressional investigation. Once again, the lame need for 'unfettered advice' talking point is being thrown around by your apologists and spokeswhores.

How do you square what you say with what you do?

It's not just a "Culture of Corruption," it's a "Confluence of Corruption." As Ambassador Wilson opined, the corruption is "to the core." Nearly every day brings another outrage. Nearly every day there's evidence that self-interested political considerations and not good governance is the norm and not the exception. We've been told so many lies, so often, and by so many different perpetrators that it's difficult to get a handle on just how pervasive this cancer on American society has become. Yet, the media still refuses to call liars, liars. Yet the media still refuses to call thieves, thieves. Yet the media refuses to call traitors, traitors.
