Why we need Cynthia McKinney

by McGirk SF

We've heard a lot of bad press about Cynthia McKinney this past week. Not like it's the first time this has happend.

http://www.alternet.org/...

Have you heard about Cynthia McKinney, former U.S. Congresswoman?

According to those quoted on National Public Radio, McKinney's 'a loose cannon' (media expert) who "the people of Atlanta are embarrassed and disgusted" (politician) by, and she is also 'loony' and 'dangerous' (senator from her own party).

Yow! And why is McKinney dangerous/loony/disgusting According to NPR, McKinney implied that the [Bush] Administration knew in advance about September 11 and deliberately held back the information.

The New York Times' Lynette Clemetson revealed her comments went even further over the edge: Ms. McKinney suggest[ed] that President Bush might have known about the September 11 attacks but did nothing so his supporters could make money in a war.

That's loony, all right. As an editor of the highly respected Atlanta Journal Constitution told NPR, McKinney's  practically accused the President of murder!

Problem is, McKinney never said it.

 There is a potentialy HUGE opportunity for the Democractic party to gain new voters. And I'm not talking about the undecided moderate swing voters the DLC sells out our progressive agenda for either. Thanks to the complete failure of the neocons, a lot of people who considered themselves conservative or libertarian that use to vote Republican because of their beliefs in fiscal responsibility, civil liberties, state's rights, protectionism, and a 'mind our own fucking buisiness' foriegn policy have become disenfrancised. Not only that, they could be courted. These are not the Ayn Rand types, they don't bow down before the free market. They definitely don't go for corporate welfare.(Now an annual multi-billion part of the Republican budget) And don't belive the hype, they don't take issue with social programs aimed at helping people get ahead in life. These people are ripe for the taking. And we wouldn't have to compramize any of our core beliefs to bring them in.

 We all saw the video of Bush being warned that the Levees could break during Katrina as he sat there reading My Pet Goat... oh wait, my bad. I'm getting my decisive moments of leadership confused. Where was I? Oh yes,.... as he sat there looking (in the immortal words of Johnny Rotten) pretty vacant. This video was the last thing Bush needed. His ratings were already worse than those of a 2AM infomercial for Abs of Steel. Needless to say, this was overkill.
 So, how do they handel this? The same way they always do: blame someone else.
 This time however, the spin isn't working as usual for Bush. His official scapegoat, "Heck of a job" Brownie was exhonerated by this same video. So that puts it into the hands of the archetect, Karl Rove. Unfortunatly, Turd Blossem's Sit and Spin seams to be pretty much worn out.

A challenge to the appeasers

by McGirk SF

There have been a lot of arguements on this site over playing it safe or fighting hard for our progressive agenda. I,for one, am in favor of bringing it to 'em. Needless to say, I was pissed off that my man, Paul Hackett was forced out by party insiders. But there are those who fear challenging those who sell out to the Republicans. That's who I am calling out today with a simple challenge.

SF enters the Impeachment arena.

by McGirk SF

Sweet!
On Tuesday, San Francisco's board of supervisors voted to request that our congressional reps. (Nancy Pelosi and Tom Lantos) take out Bush and Cheney.

http://sfgate.com/...

San Francisco's supervisors jumped into national politics Tuesday, passing a resolution asking the city's Democratic congressional delegation to seek the impeachment of President Bush for failing to perform his duties by leading the country into war in Iraq, eroding civil liberties and engaging in other activities the board sees as transgressions.

As the strange connections between Bush administration and Dubai keep comming to light, things keep getting more interesing. I have seen some recent diaries mention Clinton not taking out Bin Laden with missles because it would have hit members of the UAE's royal family as well. What I haven't seen is this blast from the past that I had forgotten about.

Nov. 2, 2001, 12:00 PST -- On Oct. 31 the French daily Le Figaro dropped a bombshell. While in a Dubai hospital receiving treatment for a chronic kidney infection last July, Osama bin Laden met with a top CIA official -- presumably the chief of station. The meeting, held in bin Laden's private suite, took place at the American hospital in Dubai at a time when he was a wanted fugitive for the bombings of two U.S. embassies and last year's attack on the USS Cole. Bin Laden was eligible for execution according to a 2000 intelligence finding issued by President Bill Clinton before leaving office in January. Yet on July 14, 2001 he was allowed to leave Dubai on a private jet, and there were no Navy fighters waiting to force him down.

Oh,it get worse.

The Democrats in Washington always seem to get suckered in to responding to Republicans claims that they are weak on defense. Instead of playing along with them and scrambling to say "No were not, We're tough too." they need to take this off the board permanetly. Just playing along with this crap is what gave it creedence in the first place. Say Pee Wee Herman were to claim that he was a total bad ass, and that Mike Tyson wasn't nearly as tough him. Would anyone take that seriously? Hell no, unless somehow Tyson were to let him get away with it. If that were the case, Pee Wee could keep saying it. Over and over again, for several years. And what if Mike Tyson's only response was "No I'm not, I'm tough too" every time the stupid claim was made? Would people some how start thinking that Pee Wee was tough.

Well, that's what happend, kids. So It's time for Iron Mike to quit playing along and do the obvious.

US plans massive data sweep
Little-known data-collection system could troll news, blogs, even e-mails. Will it go too far?

By Mark Clayton | Staff writer of The Christian Science Monitor

The US government is developing a massive computer system that can collect huge amounts of data and, by linking far-flung information from blogs and e-mail to government records and intelligence reports, search for patterns of terrorist activity.

This guy deserves a kick in the nuts

by McGirk SF

There have been so many assholes profiting off human suffering in the past several years, its easy for some to get lost in the crowd. It's even easier if they are not well know to begin with. Here's a guy who deserves a bit of attention. His name is Finis Shellnutt. He is, at the very least, an ignorant piece of shit. At worst, he could even make the entire Republican House look respectable all by himself. Anyone who suspects something sketchy went down in regards to Katrina will definetly want to check this guy out.
