Not cynical enough. Not nearly cynical enough.

The Bush Speech

Tags: 

So disgusting I don't even know how to respond to it. The distortion, disinformation, doublethink, and doublespeak is so great that it can't be defeated in detail. I'm going to bed.

Except I'm remind of the following historical episode:

Goodnight, moon

Anybody having experience blowing fill insulation into a house with aluminum siding? Like, I'd really, really like not to have to take all the siding off, or be left with ugly plugged up holes.

I'm told there's a technology for this, but I can't google it up. Read below the fold...

Apparently, when Bush interrupts the extremely non-political PT911 with an extremely non-political prime time pre-midterm speech, He's going to appeal for unity.

That's this evening. This morning, Bush was laying a wreath at Ground Zero with Not. One. Democrat. Present. And all last week, the Republicans were preparing to run on a platform that Democrats are traitors.

Unity? WTF?

How does anyone respond to a mind-fuck like that?

I sure can't, except with an inarticulate scream. Read below the fold...

Why no bi-partisanship? AP doesn't ask one single Democrat

Sweet. But then we're used to it.

AP Partisanship seeps into 9/11 anniversary

Oh, I get it. There were only Republicans present at the Ground Zero wreath-laying today because, oh, because of some over-zealous staffer. Wait! I know! The printer got the date on the invitations wrong. Read below the fold...

But Bush has nothing on at all!

Out of the mouths of babes:

Tyler Radkey and other second-graders at Emma E. Booker Elementary School didn't know what to think when an aide leaned in and whispered something to President Bush on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001.

"His face just started to turn red," said Tyler, now 13 and in seventh grade. "I thought, personally, he had to go to the bathroom."

It's a beautful, sunny, crisp fall day. Just like 9/11

Oh, wait....

Only Republicans get to participate in 9/11 events.

I forgot.

Yet another case of market failure by Big Media

Big Media to Blue America: Fuck you!

Not so big as PT911, but just the same: MSNBC fires Eric Alterman (via Susie).

What kind of "magic marketplace" is this when half the voters in America are insulted and ignored? Read below the fold...

Will Bush evade accountability on surveillance by using his Softwood Lumber Agreement slush fund?

Josh Meyer of the LA Times has a story up today that shows how the criminal (30 felonies) Bush regime's surveillance really is worse than anybody, except Corrente, ever imagined. (And we'll get to the Softwood Lumber Agreement, I promise.) Read below the fold...

Group Efforts, Backbiting, and Battle Fatigue

Thank you for your efforts, and farewell and good luck on the book, Charles. You'll be missed.

I don't really have anything profound to say to his final post, although I do wonder if that's the essential difference between a "proud mainstread journalist" and a blogger. I've taken breaks before, almost every blogger I know has and will again in the future. You can't be a sensate human being and be exposed to all this horror without the occasional burn out and need to rest. But to me, the backbiting, gotcha fact checking, and shrill proclimations are exactly why I find the blogosphere so interesting. Even trolls are an important and necessary part of this medium. They may be annoying, but they keep you either sharp with your facts, or minded of exactly what the other side is saying and writing. Thanks for being here, so I don't have to go to Powerloin, Nuddy.

Reality Check: Iraq

The reason I don't do more Iraq posts is because these days, the subject just makes me cry. But I had to put this one up, because as I pointed out a long time ago, there is no difference between today's Iraq and that of "the worst evil since Hitler." To me, the ultimate measure of the "success" of the invasion and occupation can be found here, for which I thank Mark for putti Read below the fold...
