  •  Oooh man !........... (4.00)
    This bullshit is begging for a mirror site.....

    That juxtaposes GOP faces with those same Taliban and Al Qaeda ones...

    It would be far more accurate too.

    •  There are plenty of pics of Bushes (none)
      with Taliban, Saudis, and assorted dictators. Wouldn't even need to Photoshop 'em. They're the real thing, just hanging out with their buddies.

      If I'd run Kerry's campaign, I'd have shown that photo of Shrub shaking hands with the Taliban a million times.

    •  what do you think of ExposeTheNetwork (none)
      I registered this for use on a counter-offensive site.

      If someone like SusanG or NYbri or any of the propagannon team were to take it on as a project, it might be a good name to counter them

    •  How about (none)
      A history of Fascism? From its roots to present day America.
    •  IMHO copying it perpetuates it (none)
      Now, I've abandoned a lot of my beliefs about bipartisanship etc., in favor of fighting republicans all-out as an opposition party.  But I don't think doing to them what they are doing to us will help anything.  We have to struggle to keep the discourse as honest but also as principled as we can possibly make it, to contrast ourselves with them and focus on what we stand for as opposed to what THEY say we stand for.

      IMHO

      Fascism: it's the new black.

      •  Well (none)
        I would suggest taking a page form the Rove political handbook.  The strategy that seems to work so well for republicans is to have extremists out there shouting discrediting there opponents.  They have people out lying about policy, people squealing about this and that, and confusing people as to whats going on.  Bush and other Republican leaders can then go and be the "strong" figure, and use simple terms to make everybody "understand" there policies.  

        and the results of this are?

        They get the stupid people, and the 1% of the population(the ones who are actually benefitted by policies) to vote for them.
