Everyone from the military to the State Department to…well, to the USDA is being told the use pro-war talking points in all their speeches.
Before we get into today's lecture on how abstinence-only will keep your daughters pure and your sons on the, so to speak, 'straight and narrow' path, let me assure you that
population control the war in Iraq is going swimmingly.
And, speaking of
brown people important Bush Administration initiatives, let's get rid of the excess brown people all our problems by eliminating bi-lingual ballots. Because we need fewer of "the wrong" people voting. (If, you know, "we" are a bunch of pig-headed, narrow-minded, racists.)
What do you call an Administration who decides to force through a vote on the nomination of a poorly qualified candidate for the Federal Bench? One whose history of ruling in cases where he has a financial interest provides, at the very least, suspicion of misconduct?
Are they crazy? Planning a military coup? So far out there in fantasyland that they've lost all connection to reality?
And is the much-discussed "Republican base" so afraid of a little liberal thought that they'll allow themselves to be stampeded by the threat of a Democrat Congressional majority?
The ambitious second-term agenda he helped develop has faltered even with a Republican Congress. His once-grand plans for creating a broadened and permanent Republican majority have given way to a goal of clinging to control of the House and Senate.
I think that's spelled h-u-b-r-i-s, isn't it?
Senate Republicans sent out a fund-raising letter this week seeking to use that possibility to fire up the base, warning that a Democratic majority would put fighting terrorism "on the back burner" and that "our worst fears" could be realized.
For what it's worth? My own worst fears include the idea that my party might gain control of the White House and Congress and then prove to be hopelessly inept, incompetent, and corrupt. So I'm assuming that a fair number of sane Republicans have already seen their worst fears realized.
(For a moment, I almost forgot myself and started caring again. But I don't. I do, however, care about my lunch, and it's getting cold.)
