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:

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.

South Africa: Gays are Alright

Sigh. I remember protesting against the old South African government, firm in my conviction that my nation would always be ahead of them when it came to civil liberties and justice. What Progress looks like:

Will Watch: Meet the new conservatives, different from the old conservatives

George Will calls the new Democrat-led Congress more conservative than the one it replaces.

Hmm, is he right?

Consider first that Democrats are the coalition of the nuanced, which the media takes as license for two flip-flopping memes: Read below the fold...

Bush to country: "Honey, I've changed!"

Why would anybody, let alone the Dems who just took back power--some power; how much has yet to be determined--take anything that Bush says seriously? Read below the fold...

Gloating

Silly posting, part one of many, I hope, as humor and goodwill return to our nation under Democratic rule. Rove before the results came in:

MR. ROVE: Well, like the polls today showing that Corker's ahead in Tennessee; or the race -- polls showing that Allen is pulling away in the Virginia Senate race.
