Hello Again

Well, I'd totally be blogging if I wasn't so tired. (The problem with doing temp work is that you're doing what no one else wants to do, and that frequently involves physical labor. My idea of working is sitting in front of a computer, not tossing around 25 lb boxes all day.)

So, what might I have blogged today, if I'd been blogging?

Is the army broken? It might make Rumsfield sulk and whine, but experts are saying it's breaking. Seems to be a subtle warning that we ought not take on Iran just at this moment, what with Iraq being such a disaster and Afghanistan slipping back into barbarism, in spite of the article's optimistic mention of future "improvements" in security in those countries.

George Bush says we should take bin Laden seriously and I say, "You first, George. You're the one who ignored him so you could dismantle Iraq." And, for the record, by taking a terrorist in the Middle East seriously, I do not mean illegally wiretapping USofA citizens here at home, or arresting "ecoterrorists" and claiming you're winning the war on "terror" or secretly spying on and collecting information about anti-war groups, got it?

Anyhow, he went on to say, essentially, that anything he decides he wants to do is legal. He added more words here and there, but that's the gist of it.

Hey, speaking of secret spying.

The question for journalists is how to report this. President Bush says it's a great idea and he's proud of the secret spy program? Attorney General Gonzales explains breaking the law is no problem? Dick Cheney says accept spying, or Osama bin Laden will get you?

You go, Molly.

And the White House is stonewalling a congressional inquiry into the government response last year to Hurricane Katrina? I'm not surprised. I'll bet it's a matter of national security and that those papers are vital to protecting us against Osama bin Laden.

Quite coincidentally, here's a story about how the White House is expecting, and prepping for, impeachment hearings.

Impeachment. What an interesting word.
