Now that Bush, over Christmas, has used signing statements to grab the power to open our personal mail, what are Pelosi and Reid going to do about it?
McCain/Lieberman on the Vanity08 ticket--the Centrist, Moderate exemplars--is the second line of defense that The Aristocrats of The Beltway have, after nobbling Pelosi and Reid. Just go read this Beltway Steamer of a post by Lanny Davis at his new blog (via MyDD); you can see where he's heading. The concluding quote from MacCauley, of all people, is particularly fine: Read more about Lanny Davis, just salivating to endorse McCain/Lieberman
Just because their witlessness has trashed America's legacy, that doesn't mean conservatives can't be witty.
Remember how truly funny Dennis Miller became when he got on the power-to-the-powerful bandwagon? That's shit's comedy gold, man.

Boo waxes eloquently about some cabinet shuffling going on at the White House, and all I can say is that I really don't have an opinion or theory, because as has been the case so often in the last six years, it's clear we don't have "all the information" necessary to make a sound conclusion. Except this: historically, moving high level staff around in the manner of Bush these last few years is a sign of chaos, confusion, rudderlessness and lack of direction.

Atta J beat me to it this morning, that little fez wearing, vegetable eating...well, anyway, that's not important. What is important, in addition to noting once again that our Famously Free Press took two fraking weeks to let us know about it, is that our First Challenge of the new Congress is clear. Say it with me, Dems: UNCONSTITUTIONAL. Or if you prefer:
unlawful, illegal, immoral, against the intent of the Founders, antidemocratic, unAmerican, monarchist, imperial. Read more about Throwing Down the Gauntlet
Now here's some Country Wisdom from my friend Mr. Bird:
What's the definition of an optimist?
Show them a room full of shit and they'll ask: "Where's the Pony?"
What's happening to our wingers? All of a sudden, after the last six years, the wingers are speaking and acting like the Bush administration never existed! [I know, I know; we wish.] Tragically, the latest victim stricken with Winger Amnesiac Syndrome is our Dear Leader, Bush himself. Read this, and weep: Read more about The dreaded Winger Amnesiac Syndrome strikes our Preznit
Yikes! Dirty Lefties might pester Our Leaders tomorrow:
A cluster of protesters will greet the new congressional leaders at the Capitol tomorrow. They will not be disgruntled conservatives wary of Democratic control, but liberals demanding a ban on torture, an end to warrantless domestic spying and a restoration of curbed civil liberties.
How extreme and radical of them! Read more about Crazed Left-Wing Activists
When I was in college, my program had an arts requirement, that is, one needed several performance credits to graduate. I chose to take acting classes, and I confess: I sucked. But I did learn something about how the art of acting is to be found in so many parts of the rest of our world, even those in which truth telling and reality are supposedly paramount. I believe the saying goes, "If you can't afford a meal, go see a show. If you can't afford a show, go to the zoo. If you can't afford the zoo, go see a politician." I'll let you ponder that order for a minute. Read more about The Theatre of the Absurd
