    •  outrage doesn't work for me (none)
      because every time I hear that word, I can't help but picture some old ladies at the beauty salon sitting under full-head hair dryers reading a tabloid magazine, going:

      "look at her thighs... aren't they outrageous!?"
      "tell me about it"

      "Did you hear that ben affleck made another movie?"  "What an outrage"

      After everything the Bush administration has said and done, the battery that triggers outrage in my brain has been depleted.

      I voted for John Kerry and all I got was this lousy sticker...

      •  The end of outrage? (none)
        Let's hope that we're experiencing the end of American communal innocence.  It's shocking to me how much we've forgotten even in my lifetime; it would be more shocking if I found the majority of American people willing to collude in such outrages.  I sincerely hope that we've yet to experience a national awakening to the evils being perpetrated in our name.

        Especially by those in positions to do something about them.

        •  Confirmation of Appointees (none)
          Does the Republican majority in both Houses mean that all of Bush's appointees will be confirmed?

          Even if all Dem. Senators and Reps. vote against them?

          I really would like to know if this is a foregone conclusion.

          And if there's a tie vote, Cheney gets to cast the deciding vote. Is that right?

    •  Outrageously corrupt and depraved (none)
      Not to mention deviant.
