  •  Whoah! (none)
    This is perhaps getting real legs?  And when will the MSM pick it up.  I keep looking, but don't find it carried anywhere (yet).

    Thanks again to SusanG and to Ambassador wilson.  I am still waiting for the other shoe to drop...

    •  This must be a campaign, not an isolated (4.00)
      incident.

      We need to make it clear that this is yet another example of the engoing Bush Administration policy of disinformation and secrecy.

      It fits with:

      -hoding no press conferences
      -appearing only before friendly audiences.
      -having Cheney with him when he spoke to investigators.
      -payola for right wing commentators

      It's the most Un-American thing these guys do.

      What else goes on this list?

      •  What else? (none)
        Being wired for the debates.

        The president is... a cheater.

        What kind of example is this for our children? Won't somebody please think of the children?!™

        •  Just remember... (none)
          this is what it looks like when there is not an engaged leader at the top (scary, huh).  I don't know what he spends his day thinking about and doing, but it clearly does not include having his people show up competently.  

          We have known for quite some time he has a house of cards, soon the other 51% will realize.  We will probably have to put up with him for the rest of his term, but he is heading toward being really, really LAME.

          The media is not our friend. We need change.

          •  No kidding. (none)
            Welcome to Second Term at Bernie's.

            that this would help the other 51% see Bush & Co. as they really are, but I just got through talking with my brother (the republican) and he said, "you shouldn't make judgments based upon one story or one side of the story.  I am sure the President didn't have anything to do with this person."  

            No matter how many articles I show him, no matter how many lies are exposed, my brother refuses to admit that the Bush Administration is a cheat.  He truly thinks that the liberals are just whining because we aren't in power anymore.  He doesn't get it.  I am about to give up on him.  Actually, he told me to not send him anymore of my "Michael Moore fan club stuff."  And my brother is actually a pretty decent guy, otherwise.  

            •  40% will cling to Bush no matter what (none)
              Let's grab the 10% that will give us a solid mandate of 58%.  These people ARE impressionable, they got conned into the war in Iraq and slowly but surely they are smelling a rat
            •  I wish they could receive... (none)
              There's an info wall between the parties and their followers...Folks who believe in objective reality on the left (how quaintly western civ!) and the folks on the Rihjt who, uh,... just BELIEVE!
              This conflicted (and creepy {G.I. Jones?} wingnut "Shill-gate" will end up being as small as the man's unit. It's the larger Economic pain to come that will drive the Resucklikans from our midst, oh Lawd!!! Besides, No Hearings will be heard or held.
      •  Others (none)
        Pretending to be delivering a "major speech" and just recycling the same old stump speech full of lies.

        Tossing people out of rallies because they are wearing Kerry or anti-Bush garb...

        I'll think of more...

      •  others... (none)
        clarification: telling the MSM that you have a major policy speech only to waste 60 public airwave minutes on bullshit...

        Warning people to "watch what they say" after disaster strikes (a la Ari Fleischer).

      •  What else? (none)
        How about:

        DUI citations?
        Lost service records?
        Steroid use by Texas Rangers?

    •  Other shoe (none)
      Interesting that this breaks the very day that Bush makes Karl Rove a chief policy advisor.

      It lends credence to the various things that have been posted about Rove, and puts in an entirely different light the relationship between Bush and Rove, Bush's kiss of Lieberman, and the line he is supposed to have uttered at Yale when someone made a homophobic remark, to the effect that you have to walk a mile in someone's shoes before you criticize him.  (I think Kevin Drum posted about this, but I don't have time to Google it.)

      It really underscores that the fundamental key to the psychology of the Right is their projection of their own darkest fantasies and secrets onto others, particularly Dems (or "liberals"), and most particularly where homosexual desires are concerned.  

      This is one sick group of puppies.

      If you're going in the wrong direction and you stay the course, where, exactly, do you wind up?
