What? Me Care?

So, the Bush Administration has appointed Bolton, who hates the U.N., to be our ambassador to the U.N.

So, there's more evidence that the Catholic Church actively protected child molesters. And the police helped.

So, there are more allegations that the 'trials' at Guantanamo are just staged farces to make it look like we're not behaving like an abusive, totalitarian state.

So, it looks like "Coingate," the scandal that a few blogs have been following but not many major media outlets, is about to be connected to 'problems' with the 2004 elections. Life must be strange in Ohio these days.

Which makes me think of, you know, election fraud, so I check out BlackBoxVoting and, what a big surprise, I find a pdf file that details at least a potential for fraud that should chill every voter in this country.

So, there's a bit more lunacy being exposed in the California National Guard.

And on, and on, and on, and on.

Whatever.

I think I'm suffering from Outrage Overload.

I personally think that the way Mr. Bolton was appointed is just another sign that Mr. Bush is losing his grip. He will become the longest serving US lame duck president.

I have written about the Bolton appointment on my Swedish blog and noted that nobody from the Bush-hugging part of the Swedish blogosphere (and believe me: it is not a small part) has written on this issue. Apparently it is an embarrassing matter.

I think that's the actual strategy.

Bengt, I remember when Reagan was in office, there was the same phenomenon. The European Rightwing crowed loudly over his (few) accomplishments and met such things as the Iran-Contra scandal with embarrassed silence.

Still, Hal, some days I find I'm just exhausted from the effort of being furious all the time.

No doubt my energy will return.

"I think I'm suffering from Outrage Overload."

Then all is going according to their plan...
