THE OUTSTANDING JOB THE GOP IS DOING WHILE IN THE MAJORITY.
I have tried very hard, both in my head, and in my blog, due to a deep sense of love and respect I have for my late father and family members, some of whom are Republicans, to separate the neoconservative extremist policies from those of the GOP. Very unfortunately this is no longer possible. Simply put, I have given up any hope I previously held for a mere modicum of principle, integrity and courage on the part of the GOP to stand up to the Bush, Inc. radicals. They get a F- in that regard. I also hold certain cowardly Democrats in contempt, as well, for their allowing themselves to be bought and sold by GOP party manipulation and fabrication, i.e. the rationale for going to war with Iraq. Yes, Bush Inc. misled you, but you should have done your homework in that regard, at the very least. I mean, why are you Washington? For the power fix and the social events? Pathetic! You are supposed to be DEMOCRATS, thank you very much.
In the end, however, the GOP has gone over the top by their willing complicity in the sham and shame of the Bush administration, i.e. their not so tacit support of the endless lies to the American public on all levels, the political bullying, the appalling and disgraceful vindictive smear campaigns that target any human who dares to disagree with Bush policy, the cover-up and stonewalling of possible treason committed by a top aide, merely for revenge, thereby destroying the career of a CIA operative, not to mention the life threatening danger to her contacts, compromising our national security to boot, and worst of all, for enabling Bush to go to war on nothing more than a personal pipe dream agenda. Too many of us have died. Too many of us are suffering (young soldiers who are maimed for doing what you didn’t have the courage to do at their age, W.) We have paid dearly for your screw up, George Boy. So have our allies and Iraqis who have given up their lives for your huge blunder and pie in the sky, out of touch with global reality agenda. How in God’s name do you sleep at night?
All Bill Clinton did was lie about a freaking affair that no one cared about, except those of your ilk, W., the Hypocritical, the Vicious, the Pathological and the Anti-American.
Isn't life oh so grand and peachy keen since the 2000 appointment of the "President of the United States? "
From now on, keeping my mouth shut, or rather, my hands keyboard restrained, here are some gems.
FROM THE WASHINGTON POST TODAY.
Thanks for this great piece, Ken.
Lots of new and really interesting information here. One important piece: Bob Novak was going around town trying out the Plame is a CIA operative story before he published it. He was warned by the CIA to not reveal her identity, and that the story about her sending her husband to Niger was wrong. He's been acting like an innocent in the matter, but he was warned to not reveal her identity.
It also appears the investigation is looking into the administration's frantic effort to force a patsy to take the blame for Bush's lie in the State of the Union concerning Iraq looking for uranium in Africa. "...As part of this effort, then-deputy national security adviser Stephen J. Hadley spoke with Tenet during the week about clearing up CIA responsibility for the 16 words, even though both knew the agency did not think Iraq was seeking uranium from Niger, according to a person familiar with the conversation..." Of course Tenet wound up agreeing to take the fall. -K

BONIFAZ CONNECTS ROVE TO DSM
Thank God for lawyers who aren't bought and sold by Bush, Inc. Can't seem to keep my fingers from flying across the keyboard. Sorry! LS
Mr. Bonifaz began his address yesterday with an historical analysis of the issue of war-making powers considered by those who wrote the Constitution. Kings had always held that power and the framers wished to make certain no individual held it in this country - that it be reserved to a deliberative body.
Included, of course, in the sweeping critique that followed, were the failures of Senator Kerry in particular and most members of Congress to speak out on this responsibility when the question of going to war against Iraq arose three years ago. In addition to the impeachable offenses by members of the Bush administration later enumerated, the charge of "dereliction of duty" can be levied against members of Congress for allowing presidents to usurp this power - In Korea, in Vietnam, in Afghanistan, and twice in the case of Iraq. Not since World War II has Congress exercised its authority in this matter.
