What's that foul odor?

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.


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?

As the dates of the elections are set by the Constitution, any attempt to change them would be a violation of these folk oaths of office to defend and protect it, and should result in their immediate removal.

You're right Bill...It should.
But it probably wouldn't. Rabid Bush worshippers wouldn't even notice anything wrong with postponing the election. Oddly enough, they don't notice anything. If you question them concerning their opinions on the President, all they do is question your patriotism and blame Bill Clinton.

"What do you think about going to war under false pretenses?"
"But seriously, what is your opinion of this war?"
"American troops dying daily. Other than the fact that they are following orders, is it justified?"
"Um, did you see Fahrenheit 9/11?"
"Michael Moore is FAT!"

Flipping channels I accidentally rolled past Hardball. Chris Matthews was mulling Newsweek poll numbers showing Kerry ahead of Bush by six percentage points (51 to 45%). His question to the guests was how come Kerry isn't doing any better? A 6-point lead with more than three months to go -- the question he should be asking is Will there be any RED STATES left after this election. What a toad.

This just in, Condee Rice says the "president" is not thinking of delaying the elections,,,

I note that this seems to imply that they have the authority to do so if they wished (they don't.)

Well, I'm retiring on Dec. 31. If Bush wins re-election, my husband and I are seriously considering relocating to Canada. Now, what else am I doing? I'm contributing money to Kerry/Edwards,, DNC, and any other organization that seeks to influence public opinion about issues I am in agreement with. I write my senators and representative (but needless to say, they always do exactly opposite of what I have asked them to do.) I engage in debate online and in the labs. I have a large "Regime Change Begins At Home" sign on my office door and a "ReDefeat Bush" bumper sticker on my car. These are things I'm doing that I've not done before. Especially the money donations. But it's what I can do.
