it. When I look at those pictures of people who have been killed in Iraq, I think,

intelligentsia itself, a modern-day version of
the 1970s liberals it arose to do battle with:
trapped in an ideological cocoon, defined by its outer fringes,
ruled by dynasties and incapable of adjusting
to a changed world. The movement has little to say about
today’s pressing problems, such as global warming
and the debacle in Iraq, and expends too much of
its energy on xenophobia, homophobia and opposing

adviser as chief of staff; his wife as secretary of state; his acting attorney general as AG;

the bright side would be that Ed Gaylord is rotting in Hell.
What’s really sad, from your point of view, is
that I thought Tulsa was pretty progressive compared
to OKC (Philbrook, Gilcrease, etc.).
Yes, Tulsa is called "The Paris of Oklahoma."
Compared to Tulsa, OK City is full of full-blown shit-kickers.

they are of being so f-ing backwards.

Excerpt: Obama’s transition team is asking potential appointees
detailed questions about gun ownership,
and firearms advocates aren’t happy about it.
The NRA has denounced the move, which has already
led one Republican senator to consider
legislation aimed at ensuring a president can’t
use an applicant’s gun ownership status to deny employment.
It’s just one question on a lengthy personnel
form — No. 59 on a 63-question list — but the furor over
the query is a vivid reminder of the intensity
of support for Second Amendment rights and signals the
scrutiny Obama is likely to receive from the
ever-vigilant gun lobby.
What's wrong with owning a gun?
Is he screening to be sure he GETS some gun owners?
Obama wants to be the president of all of us, right?
What about the hundred million gun owners?
No sense losing their support right off the bat, right?
I'm going to chalk this up to whore reporting.
If Obama makes this mistake, we'll help steer him straight :)
"The Clintons simply drive some people crazy.
It's a clinical diagnosis. Obama may be picking Hillary for this purpose. She can absorb
all the looney criticism from the right and he can go about his business above the fray.
It's actually smart to give them someone else to hate. And if the Clintons are good at anything,
it's being hated and successful at the same time. Indeed, they seem to thrive on it." -- Digby, talking
about that Hillary Fever that so many people have, Link

Excerpt: Lieberman's retention of his committee chairmanship
and caucus membership is all the proof we need
that a majority of the Senate Democratic Caucus
finds nothing objectionable to a member actively
campaigning for the Republican nominee for president,
live and in person. It doesn't matter that Lieberman
dismissed the Democratic nominee's qualifications
to be president. Could they be any more obvious?...
He does well by his friends. When the Enron scandal
broke and tens of thousands lost billions in that
pyramid scheme, Lieberman's Senate committee
was in charge of investigating...Lieberman delivered.
There was no serious investigation of Enron by
the Senate. The people were without an advocate.
All we got was a wink and a nod paving the way
for the latest corporate thefts. This is the best clue
to Lieberman's morality and philosophy, the same
morality and philosophy endorsed by the Democrats
who welcomed him back to their "party" with open
This was Obama's decision.
Are we going to do to Obama what we did to Clinton?
Are we going to beat him up before he even gets to the White House?
Can't we give the guy a chance?
He's going to make 10,000 decisions the first year.
Can't we hold our fire until we see what kind of job he's doing?
If we don't respect his decisions, why should America?

What you propose is the establishment of precedent
that will give future individuals in authority

incarcerate at will, spend off budget on the

Where does it stop my friend?
It stops when Pelosi does her goddamned job.
You should be angry with her, not Obama and certainly
Screw fishing into the past…that is a ruse and
a vacuous rationale because he owns both houses of Congress.
The most pressing mandate Obama has is to reestablish
the tenants, precedents and spirit of our Constitution.
If he ignores the past travesties, he garners
those powers for himself and for his successors.
There is no other way to look at it if we desire
to maintain a civilized society.
Obama didn't run on a promise to make those bastards
He ran on a promise to move the country forward.
He said he wanted to be a different kind of politician,
yet some want him to be Mr. Revenge and I think
that's a mistake.
If Obama appoints some commission to investigate
Bush crimes - fine.
But he's got more important things to do than

I see religious people as illogical by definition.
Doing things to please a non-existent cloud being is hardly rational.
All atheists wants to do is eradicate the crazy notion that God wants
to do X and Y and we'll burn in hell for eternity (Thanks God!) if
we disobey him.
To me, atheists just want more science and logic in our lives.
We see no difference in praying and asking a Magic 8 Ball for guidance.
When a plane crashes and 290 of the 300 people die, religious people
"God must've had a plan for those ten people,"

they don't say, "God must have wanted those 290 people dead,"
