Admitted, in my opinion, the Clintonista will most likely do a better job than the Oborg on progressive social issues.
The Oborg are heavily influenced by the TheoCons. Yes, they're not the kind of cross-burning TheoCons that like Paul or Huckabee or Romney. But think more of the religious values of Clarence Thomas. Or Condaleeza Rice.
Black doesn't mean progressive. Vastleft and Lambert and everyone else in the Clinton camp, you're correct. On that point.

Not when the Republicans do it.
...as losses from bad mortgages and mortgage-backed securities climb past $200 billion, talk among banking executives for an epic government rescue plan is suddenly coming into fashion.
A confidential proposal that Bank of America circulated to members of Congress this month provides a stunning glimpse of how quickly the industry has reversed its laissez-faire disdain for second-guessing by the government — now that it is in trouble. Read below the fold...

Wikileaks spots another covert op:
WASHINGTON--The US detention facility at Guantanamo Bay has been caught conducting covert propaganda attacks on the internet. The attacks, exposed this week in a report by the government transparency group Wikileaks, include deleting detainee ID numbers from Wikipedia last month, the systematic posting of unattributed "self praise" comments on news organization web sites in response to negative press, boosting pro-Guantanamo stories on the internet news site Digg and even modifying Fidel Castro's encyclopedia article to describe the Cuban president as "an admitted transexual"...

We are told that the CIA tapes were destroyed in 2005. Now, what tapes are these DOJ lawyers examining in September and October of 2007? Please take a look at this memo, HERE, do you see anything that says that the tapes were a). destroyed and b). in 2005?

A few years back Benedictus noted and pulled together a number of posts from a number of people I respect on the increasing acceptibility of violence in society related to the mindless response to the War on Terror.
Except it wasn't just a trend.
It's more like a chain reaction. More like a viral program. More like a meme.
We jokingly referred to the War on Terror as the War on Terra, first because of the fake accent that idiot son-of-a-Bu$h wears. Read below the fold...

One of the big concerns of people who think Bu$hCo-Cheneyburton either Let It Happen or Made It Happen on September 11, 2001 concerns the movement of billions of dollars of money on September 10th, insulating many Company associated people from financial harm.
