Hey rumsfeld!

"This aggression will not stand, man" -Jeffrey Lebowski

Standing with feet firmly planted on the ground, I raise my right hand and extend it's middle finger to the United States Secretary of Defense donald rumsfeld for comparing me to those who appeased the Nazis. I stand with journalist, Keith Obermann, whose "special comment" on this incompetent who boasts of taking Baghdad 4 YEARS after we invaded Iraq is far more coherent and succinct then the action I take in my living room in front of my couch. Dissent is not Unpatriotic! Questioning this administration about the war in Iraq, which they started, which has now lasted longer than Our involvement in World War, is a neccesary check on an operation costing Us HUNDREDS OF BILLIONS OF DOLLARS and THOUSANDS OF AMERICAN LIVES. It is long overdue. True, there were millions of us worldwide questioning and protesting this war at and before its commencement, but finally there are some members of Congress, GOP included, doing their job as a branch of government EQUAL TO THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. Finally there are some asking hard and important questions of bush's war in Iraq (knowing full well that this is happening during an election year). Iraq was not a safe haven for "Islamic extremists" before we invaded. The interesting thing about the bush/fox/wingnut talking points is that it is now. That's bush's war in Iraq's fault. The War in Iraq was/is the WRONG WAR. The taliban/opium warlord resurgence in Afghanistan IS proof of that.

So now that the distractions of suri cruise and jonbenet part II are over maybe, much to bill frist's dismay, the spotlight can refocus on the war this administration so ineptly planned. This war that is stretching our military. This war that has emboldened Our enemies and increased their numbers. This war that has cost Our Country $311,000,000,000.00+. This war that has taken resources and attenion from the war in Afghanistan and the hunt for bin laden. With hundreds of people dying daily in Iraq, where else should Our attention lie.

This administration and the rubber stamp, republican controlled, Congress have turned Our Nation's credibility in the world to rumble. They have taken the good will of the world and turned it into more hatred, anger, and frustration with the world's only nuclear superpower. I was recently confronted as an "America Hater". I do not hate America. I do hate the current "unilateral","pre-emptive strike", "shock and awe", not to mention "unitary executive" direction the current administration has taken us on. That direction needs to change! Come November, maybe it will.

Just a quick note for all you conspiracy theorists out there:
Isn't it odd that tom cruise "got dropped" by paramount after it was revealed that he met with richard armitage on the same day armitage met with bob woodward to reveal the classified identity of a CIA agent? Was tom cruise hoppin' around on couches meant to distract us from something? Interesting.

Hold them Accountable!

The Democrats are holding their elected officials accountable. It wasn't the "blogosphere" that did LIEberman in, it was his Iraq war rhetoric, his siding with bush at all costs, and his kissing of bush's ass on things like privatizing social security that made THE VOTERS OF CONNECTICUT vote against him. I guess he can stop pretending and take george and karl's help directly now.

I don't think it shows the "rise in progressive politics" being touted by some. I think it's a referendum on the current government in power, the failure in chief (whose on vacation again) and the rubber stamp congress. Boo-Yah!

And for the reds, you say we're putting the wacky wing of our party up. Look who the hell you put in office! And we are not weak on defense. It's the offensive, "premptive" policies of bush and friends we are against. The head general in Iraq is now warning of civil war, and bush's israel can do whatever they want policy has even got "Condi" pissed off. The Arab nations we are going to "democratize" hate us more than ever.

"My God, here we have a terrorist threat against hearth and home and the very first thing that comes out of their mind is how can we turn this to partisan advantage. I find that offensive," Ned Lamont said in an interview Sunday with The Associated Press.
