  •  Why not brag? (21+ / 0-)

    When you've got a Justice (sic) Department that doesn't enforce the law and a Congress that doesn't seem to care a whit about effectively exercising its duty to oversee the agencies/departments is funds, then why not brag about one's criminality?

    •  Indeed, the actual chutzpah (6+ / 0-)

      of being able to wave it in the face of the public is proof that they are in control.

      This is Kansas!  You know, that place where we don't use science, where we have seriously deranged "Christian" people like Phred Felps, and like that.

      Of course they brag about it!  The only things the Kansas Republican party does well are illegal or crazy.

    •  Don't forget the "All New" FEC (1+ / 0-)

      "Eight ways from Sunday" is the correct expression to describe the Xcons rigging of the upcoming presidential vote.

      One, get someone, anyone still breathing and standing who can get 40% or more of the vote.  This may eliminate NearlyDead Fred from consideration.

      Two, try to fake the Dems into choosing the weakest possible general election candidate.  One that can be most easily smeared and used to generate FUD - fear, uncertainty, doubt - maybe a Black Muslim Manchurian candidate for example. The Dallas and Sioux Falls newspapers, the Weekly Standard and one of Satan's favorite sons, Karl Rove, are already working this angle.

      Three, set up the vote caging apparatus and all other voter suppression techniques - push polling, GOTV phone bank jamming, etc.

      Four, pack the supposedly toothless FEC with more Xcons and appoint a highly experienced vote suppressor as chairman (see FL 2000 and Von Bismark or whatever his name is).

      Five, promote and fund a third party, independent progressive-populist movement and attractive candidate to split the opposition vote thereby making <50% a winning percentage (see Nader, Ralph; 2000)</p>

      Six, spread every form of lies, smear, innuendo and rumor possible to tear down the oppo candidate (do you really think Karl retired or just left town to avoid subpoenas and to lower his profile for 2008?)

      Seven, plan a last minute national security disaster (WWIII, nuke an American city and blame Osama; Houston might do as a target to throw off suspicion, home town and all that for W and Dick and Halliburton has already moved its HQ to Qatar or some such place.) The disaster will allow imposition of martial law and "postponement" of the election.

      And eight, last but not least: have the Bobby Kennedy/Benazir Bhutto option in place and ready to roll.  It's been a time-tested and proven final solution when all else fails.  Doubt that it can happen here - again - at your own peril.

      Think.
