Liberal Outrage

What's Wrong With This Picture?

Bush has been handed a copy of Seung-Hui Cho's mental records. Cho's the kid who gunned down all those people at Virginia Tech before killing himself. I have no idea why he would need such records. There's a gubernatorial panel that's investigating the shootings, not a federal one. But, that's not the main issue. Take a look at this picture ABCnews has on their site accompanying the article.

That's our esteemed Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, the Health and Human Services Secretary, Bush, and the Education Secretary, all grinning like baboons like they've got something good there. It's the mental records for someone who went on a rampage and killed a bunch of people, not the spelling bee award!! I'm still waiting for it to be revealed that the government has actually been taken over by a bunch of shape-shifting monkeys from the Mountain of Flowers and Fruit.

Please let it be shape-shifting monkeys.

Spitzer fails me

Nanny state democrats. This goes back to the original reasons why i stayed away from the Dems when i first started paying attention to politics.

New York Times (via Game Politics):

Violent and sexually explicit video games can be repulsive and demeaning. But banning them as [Governor] Spitzer [left] and legislators want to do probably will not pass muster in the courts. Also, the defense of such laws can be expensive - Illinois paid out more than $1,500,000 in taxpayer funds when courts found that its effort to ban violent videos was unconstitutional.

Our political discourse

What happens in local politics is a good indication of where our national politics are going. We have here a Republican State Senator from Alabama punching his Democratic colleague (I chose the heavy metal version of the video). Democrats had better start shaping up and getting ready to punch back or the voting public is going to think they are a bunch of sissies. Wouldn't hurt to start throwing a few pre-emptive punches now and again just to be sure, as well.

Lieberman - More Cracked in the Head

Last week, Lieberman made a statement saying if Iran doesn't stop supplying anti-American groups in Iraq with weapons, we should bomb them. Taking that fantastic idea further, every country attacked by another nation that is supplied weapons by the U.S. should bomb us. When we supplied the Taliban with weapons to use against the Russians in Afghanistan, should Russia have bombed the U.S.? Hmm...i wonder how that would have turned out if they had. What about weapons our government supplies to Israel? Should Palestine retaliate? What's good for the goose is good for the gander, after all.

If Lieberman wants to say this is the right way for the U.S. to deal with this situation, he has no right to cry about others using this same strategy for dealing with U.S. interference. We might like to think that we're Americans and therefore everything we do is right and shiny and beyond reproach, but guess what? They don't see it that way in other countries. So, don't go pitching actions that you aren't prepared to receive in kind.

To have a government official feel comfortable with coming out and suggesting we bomb another country so easily is frightening. Not only that, none of his people thought it would be a good idea to stop him before he made his crazy rantings public. Couple this with the megalomaniac we call President (who dismisses the possible No Confidence vote in the Senate, declaring it to be his government and no one will dictate who he has running it. so much for a government elected by the people to serve the people), and it paints a pretty disturbing picture.

Hell in a handbasket, ladies and gentlemen. Except the neocons have privatized the road there so you'll be required to pay a toll for the privilege.

The ghost of Joseph Heller


The ghost of Joseph Heller is channeled by Bernstein and O'Reilly to reflect 15 years of reporting on the Clintons.

O'REILLY: Did she break the law?


O'REILLY: OK. Good, I like this. How did she break the law?

BERNSTEIN: She broke the law if, indeed, she perjured herself.

O'REILLY: Well, you just said she did break the law.

BERNSTEIN: No. The special prosecutor determined that she did not.So he did not file the charge.

O'REILLY: So you think she did. But the special prosecutor, Ken Starr, said no.

BERNSTEIN: That is correct. You know what? Let me be really straightforward. I don't think she broke the law. I think there was a time that she did not tell the truth.

O'REILLY: Under oath?

BERNSTEIN: You know, I wasn't in the room.

Giuliani: Corrupt Fascist

Matt Taibbi in Rolling Stone

Key quote for me:

The [Ron] Paul incident [attacking Ron Paul for suggesting that the reason terrorists attacked us was due to the fact that we bombed Iraq in the 90s] went to the very heart of who Giuliani is as a politician. To the extent that conservatism in the Bush years has morphed into a celebration of mindless patriotism and the paranoid witch-hunting of liberals and other dissenters, Rudy seems the most anxious of any Republican candidate to take up that mantle. Like Bush, Rudy has repeatedly shown that he has no problem lumping his enemies in with "the terrorists" if that's what it takes to get over.
