What a busy week!
First the Edwards VP announcement (and Bush's facile reaction 'the difference is Cheney could be President' -- duh -- he already is). Then, a weird conservative push for the Bush campaign to drop Dick "Potty Mouth" Cheney.
Then the revelation that Bush's military records have been "destroyed."
Another revelation cites that 20 billion dollars of oil money is missing from Iraq (as Bremer dashes off in an Army helicopter).
Next, Bush's snub of the NAACP (who needs black votes when they are easily dropped from the voter rolls).
And just when the release of the Arms Services Committee report on going to war under false pretenses made this week seem like a William Burroughs political thriller, we are told that Tom Ridge, Director of Homeland Security is having legal memos drawn up that will enable the Bush administration to "postpone" the election without the consent of congress.
POSTPONE THE ELECTION.
This at the urging of DeForest Soaries Jr., Bush appointed chairman of the U.S. Election Assistance Commission. Soaries also happens to be the senior pastor of a 7,000-member First Baptist Church in New Jersey. Culture war is so five minutes ago. This season it's Holy War, baby!
Pour yourself a tall one and sit back and wait for the giant splatter of shit fanning out from sea to shining sea.
They know they are going to lose and lose BIG. And like Veruca Salt the greedy bastards have no self control. They must have all the blueberries. MMM, blueberries. In the immortal words of Dick Cheney, "go fuck yourselves," America -- we've got gorging to do. Haliburton, Bechtel, KBR and all the rest haven't sucked us completely dry yet. It's like Mr. Burns from the Simpsons is running the country.
As interesting as this is, my one question is what do YOU think? What on earth do you do any differently given that everything right and good about this country is being stolen from us right before our very eyes. They aren't even being coy about it. In the words of Lewis Black, "it's like they are sitting on our face and taking a dump."
Come on, ya'll -- even the most daffy Republican can't go along with this. This is treason. Coup-like, even.
What say ye?
