A Simple Question

If "G"lobal "W"arming Bush says "We don't negotiate with terrorists,"

AND

"G"lobal "W"arming Bush says that the Iraqi terrorist insurgency started with, and is led by the disenfranchised Sunni's,

THEN

Just who did "G"lobal "W"arming Bush "NEGOTIATE" with when he compromised on an Iraqi Constitution that was being held up by the Sunnis?

Just Who Does Support Harriet Miers?

"most qualified"
-Laura Bush on Harriet Miers, from the Today Show

"possible"
-Laura Bush, regarding criticism of Miers being sexist

"It's a sexist attack" was an idea floated by Ed Gillespie, former head of the "G"reed "O"ver "P"eople party and now a Bush advisor.

Definition: A Bush Advisor - Someone who keeps the president away from reality

"obviously ridiculous"
-William Kristol, Head of the weekly Standard and a Fox news contributor, referring to Mrs. Bush's sexual discrimination remarks regarding Harriet Miers

"It is striking to me they are spending less time explaining the merits of Harriet Miers and more time . . . using liberal talking points to criticize the critics. I think it is going to backfire."
-Kristol

Did Bill Kristol just call George-Boy Bush a "Liberal?" Just how far to the right do you have to be to be on Kristol's side anyway? Adolf and Benito must have been "just right enough" for the Weekly Standard.

 

Or is it the "Weakly" Standard?

Laura Bush's sexism charge "is horribly disappointing and the sort of thing I normally expect from left-wingers."
-Jonah Goldberg, The National Review web blog

Harriet Miers attended "a very conservative church, which is almost universally pro-life.
-Karl "The Traitor" Rove assured Focus on the Family Chairman James C. Dobson, according to Dobson

Miers had "taken on the American Bar Association on the issue of abortion."
-Rove to Dobson, referring to Ms. Miers being a member of Texas Right to Life, an antiabortion group

So I guess there really IS a litmus test after all.

"You're either with US or against US."
-"G"lobal "W"arming Bush, referring to his policies

Well if the Weekly Standard and the National Review are "against you", Mr. Bush, just who is with you?

"Righties" Still Fighting the Clinton Wars

"Bill Clinton the executioner, Killed a BLACK MAN on Death Row while running for president. This man had an IQ under 70!!, and Clinton killed him."

Here was Victoria Brownworth's response:

If this bothers you, then why didn't it bother you when Bush did it? George Bush, while governor of Texas, executed more people than any other governor in the history of the US, including more than 15 people with IQs under 70, a woman whose life was pleaded for by the president's own pastor, rev. Pat Robertson, more than ten people who were convicted when they were teenagers, and more than 25 people whose attorneys had found evidence that they were not even guilty of the murders they had been convicted of.

You can blame Clinton for whatever Clinton has done, but he if he started randomly killing people on the street today and kept it up until he died, he wouldn't be able to keep up with Bush's murderous record. Bush's hands drip with the blood of innocents and his murderous rampage through the world continues as I write this.

If you are concerned about peace, then stop supporting the murderous regime of George Bush. Clinton hasn't been president for five years. When will conservatives stop blaming him for what George Bush is doing?

If Bill Clinton deserved to be impeached for cheating on his wife and lying about it--which two-thirds of American men do every day---then George Bush deserves impeachment and a sentence of death for leading this country into war predicated on lies, killing Americans and Iraqis and maiming countless others.

Get your priorities straight. Cheating on your wife is immoral but it is not comparable to murder. And if Clinton deserved to be impeached for a private lie, then Bush certainly deserves to be impeached for such a very public one

-Victoria Brownworth



Hedging a Bet?

Harriet Miers' law firm donated $1000 to Hillary Rodham Clinton's (D-NY) run for the US Senate run in 2000.

I think this information will be used to indicate how "fair and balanced" Miers is, which, she so obviously is not.

-Victoria Brownworth



Media Madman
A Real AP Headline


"Fox Television cancels 'The Simple Life'"

I guess Fox "dumbed down" enough Americans already.

-Noah Greenberg



In response to:
"There are two things that will help people with "Quality of Life" diseases:
1- Research and funding, including that of Fetal Stem Cell Research
2- Health Care for all"

Robert Scardapane writes:


I agree completely. This is one of many reasons to elect Jon Corzine as NJ governor. He will fund basic research into fetal stem cells. Our state should be a leader in this area given the concentration of life science savvy people. We already have a large cancer research center right here in central New Jersey for instance.

Concerning Health Care For All, at some future date, I think it would be worth meeting with the NJ Health Care For All group. They are looking for new members to energize the cause. I think we are more likely to succeed with guaranteed health care at the State level. That is how the health care system was rolled out in Canada - province by province rather than from the federal government.



A Correction (Maybe)

One error in Victoria Brownworth’s article on Harriet Miers is her assertion that the Supreme Court caseload has doubled in just a few years. The justices now hear about 85 – 90 cases in a term. Never in my recollection has the Supreme Court only heard 40 – 45 cases. In the early years of Rehnquist as Chief Justice, he reduced the usual number of cases heard by the Court from about 145 to its current level. This has been a great source of consternation because the United States Supreme Court is the court of last resort, and denying cert to more than 50 cases a year that were on the docket 20 years ago means that many more Americans are denied access to this level of final judgment.

Today's Quote.

"Other than telling us how to live, think, marry, pray, vote, invest, educate our children and, now, die, I think the Republicans have done a fine job of getting government out of our personal lives."
