Just a Pitiful Little Screed

Wednesday, July 16th, 2008

It's been a long time since my last anger-filled screed. This unexpected development isn't because there are no more topics worthy of long and vicious screeds, it's because I'm feeling a little like a ripple wimpily expending itself on the placid shores of a pond. It's hard to get all ...

Truthiness and the Bush Legacy

Monday, July 14th, 2008

When Stephen Colbert coined the term "truthiness", he hit the nail on the head as it applies to our Barney Fife administration. The Great Flip-Flopper sends his PR minions to spin corrections to stories and statements so often, they can "truthifully" claim they did or didn't say something as it ...

When Does Executive Privilege Become Executive Abuse?

Tuesday, June 24th, 2008

  Executive privilege is arguably a proper and useful way to protect sensitive government information. However, the definition for what qualifies has expanded to the point of ridiculousness. The Bush administration considers everything from the White House cheese log budget to retired presidential toilet swabbers as sacrosanct. To be fair, "The Privileger"TM ...

Change Is In the Wind

In the "Too Little Too Late But Definitely Better Than Nothing" category, the House passed Representative Dennis Kucinich's HR 1258 and voted 251-166 to refer impeachment charges against George W.

Mr. Bush Makes A Proposal With Long Legs and Sustainablility in Mind…NOT.

Wednesday, June 18th, 2008

Of course, the solution to solve the gas crisis now is to drill now for oil later? Any one else having flash backs to Whimpy's slogan, "I'll gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today?" With gasoline topping $4 a gallon, President Bush urged Congress on Wednesday to lift ...

Bush: Lame Duck Walking?

Sunday, June 8th, 2008

Good bye ... so long ... Godspeed. Finally ... about time ... last one out, turn off the lights. Whatever path you choose - you vapid, pretzel choking shitheel - remember this: "you won't always have Poland". Both parties now have their presumptive nominees and the primary season from hell turns ...

When Republican Voters Get The Whitehouse They Dream of, We All Have To Live With The Consequences

Saturday, June 7th, 2008

Turns out, Republican Faithful should have headed the old adage: Be careful what you wish for, you might get it. Indeed, with the new book promulgated by Scotty McMessage McClellan, we learn that leadership by faith over facts doesn't work. From the Republican "victories" at the polling stations and ...

The Bush Legacy: A Bad Case Of “ED” Or A Royal Screwing?

Friday, June 6th, 2008

Today, President Bush, in the following video clip, tells us that we face "turbulence in the housing market and slow growth for our overall economy". At the same time, the number of U.S. homeowners in foreclosure or delinquent on their mortgage payments is nearly nine percent, unemployment jumped a full ...

On the Moron-in-Chief

Wednesday, June 4th, 2008

Maureen Dowd has a funny piece about Scotty McClellan's book and the Moron-in-Chief.  Ok, it would be funny if a work of fiction, but alas, "W" is really President. It turns out that the President is a one-man refutation of Malcolm Gladwell's bestseller Blink, about the value of trusting your gut. ...

Spinning Iraq
