Bush Not Responsible

President* Bush stepped in front of the cameras yesterday to address the continuing economic crisis facing America. He bravely blamed congress 16 times in his opening statement alone.

This is rather odd, since he has spent his entire Presidency claiming the congress is virtually irrelevant. Only since his rubber-stampers were shown the door in the 2006 elections have the Republicans decided their new tactic, congressional constipation, is the way to go, so to speak.

In this era of the Bush Economic miracle, where we are reaping the benefits of his agenda and policies, the fault lies, according to him, with the congress.

I would encourage a member of congress to come forth and say they will admit being responsible if Bush will admit being irresponsible.

The neocon vision of unregulated capitalism and the denunciation of anything like universal health care and collective bargaining as socialism has been tried before.

In Europe, awhile back.

It is referred to as "The Dark Ages."

A dark ideology indeed.

McCain's 100 Year War with Iraq

Seems the hot headed John McCain, along with the Republican National Committee are outraged that the Democratic National Party would put the "straight talkers'" very own words in a commercial.

The primary defense of McCain and the RNC is his words are taken out of context, and lack the necessary Vulcan mind-meld required to divine his thinking, saying it is the casualties American soldiers suffer that, if eliminated, would allow American's to support a 100 year American presence in Iraq. The RNC and McCain point to the Korean model, Japan and Germany as evidence of such long-term American presence being endorsed by the American people.

So, now into our sixth year, is the McCain plan to continue an occupation where American soldiers are being killed until American casualties are eliminated? If that does not happen, do we stay until it does, and then begin with the Korean model?

If McCain becomes President, more Americans will die. He will Stay The Corpse.

Broder Unplugged

Broder, third from right on evolutionary chart shown here, wants to know what Timmeh had for breakfast.

The Dean of the Washington Press Village, David S. Broder, cast his pearls of wisdom before the swine of ignorance:
In an age of deep cynicism about politicians of both parties, McCain is the rare exception who is not assumed to be willing to sacrifice personal credibility to prevail in any contest.
This, more clearly than anything else, represents the truest obstacle to the Democrats regaining the White House. Here is the Dean Broder himself telling both Obama and Clinton, if they want the White House, they will have to go through the entire corporate political press machinations, along with what they filter as credible and worthy. The noisy and smelly and wussyfied dirty fucking hippies shall not sully the good name of St. John McCain.

The Dean doesn't want Democrats coming in and "trashing the place, because it is not their place."

This is what he famously wrote during the Monica/Clenis period of the last Democrat elected to the White House. Bill was elected. He was wildly popular and the unelected Dean was disturbed by these "aromatic" Democrats trashing his place.

Now he is losing any and all remaining vestiges of credibility by pretending John McCain is a, "rare exception" who won't " sacrifice personal credibility" to blah, blah blah. Blather rinse, repeat.

Remember, Dean is a leading stenographer for Rove, Dubya, and Corporate America. He is also the current President of the Village Voice--all political corespondents look to Broder to see how to act.

Broder is clearly off the reservation and entered the realm of advocacy. No one has ever flipped and flopped more and quicker than John McCain. For Broder to refuse to see this deems his commentary myopic and more than a little biased.

I shit on him from a great height.

If the corporate media insist on shilling for republicans and roadblocking for democrats, requiring us in the lefty blogosphere to point out how consistently stupid they are, well, we can do that. It will hurt when we do, assholes.

Chicks Dig McCain least according to a "poll" cited by Scott Carter, a political reporter for the Moore American and the Norman Transcript. He does an adequate job of allowing Oklahoma City based Democratic political consultant Don Hoover to call bullshit:
“Those kinds of Web surveys don’t count for much,” he said. “People are doing them because they are motivated one way or another. There’s not a chance of a random possibility.”

One wonders if those who favor McCain in Mr.Carter's "poll", especially the women, are aware Senator McCain has called his wife a "trollop" and a "cunt" in front of a bunch of people?
Three reporters from Arizona, on the condition of anonymity, also let me in on another incident involving McCain's intemperateness. In his 1992 Senate bid, McCain was joined on the campaign trail by his wife, Cindy, as well as campaign aide Doug Cole and consultant Wes Gullett. At one point, Cindy playfully twirled McCain's hair and said, "You're getting a little thin up there." McCain's face reddened, and he responded, "At least I don't plaster on the makeup like a trollop, you cunt." McCain's excuse was that it had been a long day. If elected president of the United States, McCain would have many long days.

If they were aware of it, would they be more likely, or less likely to elect such a seriously disturbed misogynist for President?

Cliff Schecter, a veteran campaign strategist and political commentator describes this incident, along with many other temper outbursts in his book, The Real McCain. In short, McCain has anger management issues and anyone that twitchy is far too dangerous to sit in the big chair.

Polls are somewhat important, but meaningless ones, not at all, as is bowling scores, cackling and cleavage. The mental stability of the Republican nominee for President is a very real concern. Is he getting help for his problem, medically or otherwise? If not, why not? Should reporters be asking these questions, or be steno graphing worthless "If you love me, check here" webpolls?
