Victory in the making...

White House correspondent Ed Henry : You know, going back to September 2001, the president said, dead or alive, we're going to get him. Still don't have him. I know you are saying there's successes on the war on terror, and there have been. That's a failure.

FRAN TOWNSEND, HOMELAND SECURITY ADVISER: Well, I'm not sure -- it's a success that hasn't occurred yet. I don't know that I view that as a failure

So by that logic- I guess I'm not poor, I just haven't won the lottery yet.
And I wonder if the IRS will give me credit for the 5 kids I haven't had yet.

Now rebuilding N.O.- that's a success that hasn't occurred yet... I wonder if it has the same chance of happening as W. getting Osama; it certainly seems that he wants both successes equally.

I could go on... but my favorite comment on this was someone on tpm, who wants the U.S. press to call "Bullshit" on this one. I would give sooo much for the 'mainstream' media to call W. / Tony Snow/ Dick Cheny/ Condi Rice/... on any one of their seemingly endless lies/ Orwellian Newspeak.

Romney deserves coal in stocking

I'm not sure if Mormoms celebrate X-mas, but if they do- Romney deserves coal this year... and is showing me( if not the whole country) the fact that he's trying to be made of the same timber of W. ... which could be a good thing considering how disliked W. is.

See Romney has decided NOT to give lawmakers a raise this year. Now at first one can say, well this is different from W. because W. recently gave Cheney a cost of living increase( because we ALL know how hard it is for the veep to make ends meet) HOWEVER the real news is why Romney didn't pass the state pay raise. He refused to give these people pay raises because the state senate REFUSED to vote on the anti gay marriage ammendment.

I can't believe the BALLS on Romney. The government is NOT a business, you shouldn't be allowed to withold raises if other people disagree with you.

Right now I don't know who will survive the repugs vetting process for 2008... but right now I'm think Romney is going to be the second weakest link( with Rudy being the first)....
He's leaving office like a angry kid, pissed off because Gay Marriage happened on HIS watch... and I recently read that some of the rest of the media has picked up on the fact that Romney had previously ran as a moderate/friend of gay rights ealier in his political career.

Oh and the last word on Romney, this foot stamp is AFTER being out of Ma. for 60% of the year.... What a leader.

WTF?!? Part Duex- aka Christains V. the rest of us.

[Ok... I'm messing arround with Beta so please excuse any mistakes. it's my first beta blog]

I was sadly not shocked when I read Virgil Goode( a repug. natch) responded to the news that the United States of America had 'in a time of war' elected a MUSLIM to office. Which is to say more people wanted Keith Ellison as their congressman then they wanted a [presumed] christian. I say presumed for two reasons- one, I never read anywhere about the Muslim beating a Jew.... and two, I admit that my lack of research means I am assuming both that the guy that Ellison beat was a christian and a 'good' one... though that could open up another can of worms....

Goode's response was so over the top as to fill me with a need to blog about it.

"The Muslim representative from Minnesota was elected by the voters of that
district and if American citizens don't wake up and adopt the Virgil Goode
position on immigration there will likely be many more Muslims elected to office
and demanding the use of the Koran," he[Goode] wrote.

So Goode is saying we have to close our boarders to protect our Democracy. Because we don't want OUR democracy to stand for OTHER? world views...

And to bring it back to my first WTF post; Beck. On one of his show, him and Buchanan talk about the NEED to protect the U.S. against 'outsiders' like Mexicans coming here and refusing to 'melt' into the melting pot- which I can only take to mean- get with the euro-christains.

So the way I see it, Goode et al. realize that the ONLY way to protect America is to build a big old wall and reproduce like mad behind the wall- so that THEY will always hold the majority...

Because you know they can't win by having good ideas.

[ oh and I labeled this NIMBY- as I feel that's part of their thinking- repugs don't want any next door neighborhoods but other repubs.]

Gingrich in '08

Right now I'm posting this for Drew, because Blogger's switch to Beta screwed his permissions up. The inappropriate picture is all me--Evan

Gingrich cited last month's ejection of six Muslim scholars from a plane in Minneapolis for suspicious behavior, which included reports they prayed before the flight and had sat in the same seats as the Sept. 11 hijackers.

"Those six people should have been arrested and
prosecuted for pretending to be terrorists," Gingrich said. "And the crew of the U.S. airplane should have been invited to the White House and congratulated for being correct in the protection of citizens."

So if we vote for Gingrinch we get more fearmonger ala
W., and Less Rights ala W.
You'd sorta hope that the right had realized the
thumping they took in 06 would've have meant that they
would've changed the playbook.

Right now I'm not sure whether I'm happy that
Gingrinch hasn't learnt the lessons the right
should've from the last election... or scared that
with Faux News, Gingrich might still have a chance to
scare enough red necks to voting for him and continue
to send their kids to die in the middle east for
