"Tony Snow said Bush will not endorse
Republican running against Lieberman
--Political Wire, Link
This is getting weird...
Is Lieberman gay, too?
On Monday, both Israel and Bush portrayed Hezbollah
as the loser - and by extension,
its main backers, Iran and Syria. "There's going
to be a new power in the south of Lebanon," Bush said.
But Hezbollah's leader, Sheik Hassan Nasrallah,
claimed a "strategic, historic victory."
Much of the Arab and Muslim worlds would agree.
Hezbollah's ability to withstand the Israeli military
- and hit back with deadly ambushes and cross-border
rocket volleys - has given it heroic stature.
In Damascus, Syrian President Bashar Assad said
the region has changed "because of the achievements"
of Hezbollah, and U.S.-supported political changes
were "an illusion."
To the disinterested observer, it seems Israel has suffered their first
They began with the intent to "crush" Hezbollah.
They scaled that back to "inflict damage" on Hezbollah.
That was scaled back to "create a buffer zone."
That was scaled back to, "the world hates us more than ever."
They learned the Kissyface lesson - allign with Bush and you lose.

We now know that from the very beginning, the
Bush administration and its allies in Congress
saw the terrorist threat not as a problem to
be solved, but as a political opportunity to be exploited.
The story of the latest terror plot makes the
administration's fecklessness and cynicism on terrorism
clearer than ever.
Fecklessness: the administration has always pinched
pennies when it comes to actually defending
America against terrorist attacks. Now we learn
that terrorism experts have known about the threat
of liquid explosives for years, but that the
Bush administration did nothing about that threat until now,
and tried to divert funds from programs that
might have helped protect us. "As the British terror plot
was unfolding," reports The Associated Press,
"the Bush administration quietly tried to take away
$6 million that was supposed to be spent this
year developing new explosives detection technology."
Subject: Bush loses war
Bush just lost another war to Hezbollah, Syria,
I say Bush lost the war because it turns out
that it was Bush who talked Israel into fighting
a proxy war against Hezbollah and failed to get
Syria and Iran involved in a larger regional war.
The losers in the war includes the people of Lebanon,
a democracy almost wiped out by the
US and Israel. Israel and the
US are also big losers because this war was an unjust war and it
has turned world opinion against us. The winners,
unfortunately, are Hezbollah, who held off the
Israelis and Iran and Syria who had the restraint
to not get involved, and Islamic radicals.
Because America has a weak and stupid president,
Bush has made us weaker while making
Islamic terrorists stronger. It is time we get
rid of the Republican congress so that we can impeach
this criminal and restore America to be a force
for good rather than the biggest threat to democracy
and freedom on the planet.
Bush has make us the bad guys now that we have
yet another nation we have to do whatever it
takes to stop him.

After 6 years, no one should be surprised at
the levels Cheney can reduce himself to in his
unending efforts to smear his political foes.
Cheney told reporters that Democratic voters
encourage "al-Qaida" types. He then made reference
to an "Al-Qaida for Ned" blog."
Too bad the Democrats can't figure a way to fight back. How about,
made a deal with Hezbollah to steal an election in 1980?"

Subject: that terror plot
Didja ever stop to think that maybe the plot IS
the terror? Think with me a minute:
A group of "terrorists" get together and
conjure up some bizarre scheme with a
"Snakes on a Plane" level of probability. Through
whatever means they allow
themselves to get caught, and then they just
sit back and watch the fun.
We will quite happily wreck our economy and give
up our rights so we are

or whatever other
MacGyver-esqe plan the "terrorists" supposedly
Sure the perpetrators will do some time in lockup,
but they didn't have to go out
in a red mist screaming "Allah Akbar!" I think
every time DHS & TSA screw with
our right to travel freely within our own country,
the terrorists chalk up a win.
Dude, good point.
Next, Bush will fabricate a "paper bomber" and then we won't be allowed
to board a plane with any papers of any kind - while they laugh at

I never had Maureen Dowd pegged as a woman-hater
- until Saturday. That's when MoDo
unleashed the worst in a long series of attacks
on Senator Hillary Clinton that was, frankly,
a pathetic scattering of weak, misogynistic crumbs.
Look, you can oppose Clinton on many
grounds if you're a Democrat sizing up the 2008
field: her support for the war, some of the
failures of the Clinton presidency, even the
clearly apparent size of her massive ambition
(though how this is a downside for a politician
is beyond me). But too many of my friends
on the left are far, far from gender neutral
in summing up Mrs. Clinton.
Let's run Dowd's column from Saturday's Times

Regarding the business of Iraq and WMDs:
Any reasonable person had all the evidence they

You are a crazy man.
You just said "any reasonable person" had as
much intel in 2003 as the CIA?
What are you - on something?
The point is Bush misused the intelligence,
and had the CIA lie to the senate.
What a crazy position to take - that "everybody"
knew as much as our top spies.
Your approach -- saying it is not a gamble any
politician could or should take -- simply
justifies Dick Cheney. Remember him -- anything
bad with 1% risk of happening is to be
acted upon as though it was certain to happen.
Nobody said that.
You can't state my position for me.
I doubt the CIA said,
"There's a one percent chance Saddam has WMDs,"
and that made the senate Democrats vote for war.
So by your standards, any corrupt group of politicos
with the juice to influence its
intelligence-gathering organizations can create
any outlandish, trumped-up reason they want
to justify war, murder, imprisonment, arms sales
and what have you. I'm certainly willing to
risk my life and my family's lives on the bet
that terrorism is a far smaller threat to them than
global warming, idiots with knives and guns,
drunk drivers and oversexed clergymen.
But you miss the entire point.
The senate didn't get to pick-and-choose what
intel to believe.

None of us knows what was said at the briefing,
so we have no choice but to
assume that whatever they were told, it was enough

that's your assertion, recent history will back you up all the way.

Those are precisely the kind of self-serving hacks

Falwell, Dobson et al.
He got tired of them lying in His name
In a surprise announcement, God today demanded
the immediate resignations of
Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson and James Dobson
as his self-proclaimed spokesmen.
In a personal fax sent to each of these quasi-religious
representatives, God stated that
"Because the three of you have consistently misstated
and perverted my teachings for your own
aggrandizement I am forced to order each one
of you to cease and desist using my name for your
personal profit. This command is effective immediately.
Any violations will be dealt with severely."
Authenticity of the faxed document was verified
by several scholars who said that it produced a
divine brightness that was not of this world
and could only have come from the Creator. Professor
Richard Fenwick of Harvard's School of Divinity
said, "There is no doubt that it is original. We can tell
this by the masterly use of language and the

Sen. Allen ridiculed a 20-year old Indian American
student from Dunn Loring, Va. who

referring to him as "Macaca," according to accounts
by the whore AP and the WaHoPot.
The word macaca refers to either a monkey that
inhabits Asia or a racial slur against African
immigrants. Allen's campaign manager dismissed
the issue with an expletive and insisted the

is not the first time Sen. Allen has confronted
charges of insensitivity to race or ethnicity

The overthrow of Lieberman has intensified the
anxieties of the Republican establishment
and their friends in Washington's professional
chattering class. This week they were full of
furious insults, dire predictions and brazen
lies about the political uprising of those well-heeled
peasants in Connecticut who dared to ignore the
conventional wisdom and did what they felt
was best for country and party.
Not surprisingly, the most vicious and partisan
attacks emanate from those same statesmen
and intellectuals whose propensity for fear-mongering
and falsifying first led us into the Iraq
quagmire. They hate being held to account for
the catastrophe they authored, which is why
they again stoop to questioning the patriotism
of their critics -- in this instance, the ordinary
voters who went to the polls to register their
dissent from George W. Bush's war.
