I have to stop reading the media too early in the morning. Sometimes it hurts my brain.

For instance, I usually link to ConsortiumNews when they publish a column that makes me think and that I believe has some good ideas in it.

So, the brain boggled today when I found myself reading Robert Parry suggesting three potential futures for the USofA.

#1 - Hand the White House over to Al Gore, today, and let him clean up the neo-con mess. (Why does Parry hate Al Gore?) *

#2 - Civil war inside the USofA. (Admit it. That's exactly what he's suggesting.)

#3 - Go along with the fiasco and watch the world degenerate into nuclear chaos for the next three years.

Read it anyhow, along with the previous articles he links to, if you haven't read those before. Because they will make you think.


* Okay, that one might work, but only because this would drive the entire Rightwingnut population into collective apoplexy. With them all dead or on life support, it's not impossible that we might get the country back on track a lot faster.

The point, though, is that the Left is generally against killing people, and not the least for political reasons. Especially people who probably couldn't pass a competency hearing.

Man, it's been a depressing weekend: did you see the declining empires review?

The only problem with Parry's first-choice transfer of power is that Gore's VP candidate was.... Joe Lieberman (DINO-Ct); maybe Gore would be permitted to combine forces with Kerry instead? What if we staged a recall election? I know there's no constitutional provision for one, but if staged one with tens of millions of votes in favor of recall, the vote-conscious House would have to take note.

Yeah, I wasn't a fan of Lieberman's before or during his own campaign, I wasn't thrilled with him when Gore picked him, and I become less impressed with him every day.

Your own post started too many thoughts for me to handle in a comment of polite length. :) I've commented there and now I'm having to write an entirely new entry for this blog.
