It's the equivalation, stupid

How are the Repubs and MSM going to chip away at the emerging Democratic majority?

As James Carville might have said, if he weren't busy throwing Howard Dean under the bus: it's the equivalation, stupid.

Since the advent of "Nightline," cable news, and Ronnie love — and the end of the fairness doctrine and something we used to call "shame" — the news game has been a game. Read below the fold...

Bush: Torturer-in-chief

It's only natural that the sociopathic kid who blew up frogs would grow up to be the sociopathic President who tortured people. The Herald Trib:

The Central Intelligence Agency has acknowledged for the first time the existence of two classified documents, including one signed by President George W. Bush, that have guided the agency's interrogation and detention of terror suspects.

Because we didn't start the class warfare. We're just losing it. That needs to be fixed. Via Kos (who sure needs the hits), on the pages of the Wall Street Journal, Democratic Senator Jim Webb speaks the hitherto unspeakable truth: Read below the fold...

Even as a die-hard Greenie, last week's election made me a happy, happy camper. BushCo and the Right Wing's capacity for doing evil has been greatly reduced.

But I'm even happier because the Democrats in Congress now have no excuse for sitting on their hands. Before last week, the standard response to questions like: Read below the fold...

It's All About the Money and Always Has Been: Iraq

Ahem. I've said it before, I'll say it again: past all the foily, racist, oil-based, hubris driven, adventuristic, pro-hardliners in Israel, and Oedipal reasons that drive this war, one stands above all others. It's the profit, stupid. No, really. Here is one surefire winner for the Dems. Fix this:

Rahm is a Total Failure

This is one of the best and most complete recitations of why Rahm sucks goats that I've read since the elections. Save it, and throw it in the face of everyone who parrots the "victory for centrists" and "moderate mandate" crap. Here are some highlights:

Preventing Future Wars: Start with the Obvious

Departments: 

This is the age for everyone to freak out over the idea that North Korea and Iran may have "the bomb" and other scary "mushroom cloud" induced nightmares, and frankly, I'd be really happy if Democrats began reversing that and started instead talking about actual serious threats to American and global security.

Meet Your Democrats, or, The "Insiders" are Morons

Wow, I was having lunch today and CNN and later Fox was on, and later away from the intertubes. And what do I find when I check in? Everything I heard the political reporters at CNN and Fox say turned out to be not true. I'm shocked.
