The Great Unraveling - cont. WAY TO GO GEORGE - McGovern that is

The Prairie Populist indeed. Would that we had a few more like you these days. Keep telling the truth George. Here are a few choice lines from Mr. McGovern's Op-Ed piece in today's Los Angeles Times.

"[Bush and Cheney] ...foolishly sent U.S. forces into Iraq against the advice and experience of such knowledgeable men as former President George H.W. Bush, his secretary of State, James A. Baker III, and his national security advisor, Brent Scowcroft."

"[the Bush administration] ...mistakenly asserted Iraq's involvement in the 9/11 attacks, it also falsely contended that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction."

"The war in Iraq has greatly increased the terrorist danger."

"... [Nixon] defeated me overwhelmingly. But lest Cheney has forgotten, a few months after the election, investigations by the Senate and an impeachment proceeding in the House forced Nixon to become the only president in American history to resign the presidency in disgrace."

"Who was the real loser of '72?"

"...Cheney and Bush have repeatedly lied to the American people."

"The Cheney-Bush team has committed offenses that are worse than those that drove Nixon, Vice President Spiro Agnew and Atty. Gen. John Mitchell from office after 1972. Indeed, as their repeated violations of the Constitution and federal statutes, as well as their repudiation of international law, come under increased consideration, I expect to see Cheney and Bush forced to resign their offices before 2008 is over. "

There you have it folks... a prediction in black and white in the pages of the Los Angeles Times that Cheney and Bush will resign their offices before 2008 is over.

In 1972 I raised countless toasts to the future imprisonment of Richard Nixon... it almost came to pass. Will this administration unravel to the point that George McGovern predicts? He knows more about it than I do.

Bomb Bomb Bomb - Bomb Bomb Iran

No friend of Don Imus I but one can't help but wonder how John McCain manages to get away with this "joke" with nary a scratch when Imus gets the wrath of a nation. As offensive as Imus' comment was at least it didn't involve joking about the death of untold thousands of innocent civilians. But then Mr. M. is a born again hawk is he not? Having been in Vietnam you'd think he'd have learned a bit of history.

Glock World

From the Glock World Website -

"Can I really buy a gun on the Internet?

Absolutely, as long as you do the following:"

Click the link - its legal, think about it. How many more VT shooters do we need before we end this madness???

The Great Unraveling

It's going to be very interesting and very sad between now and January '09 watching the most incompetent and ill-intentioned administration in American history unravel now that there is some semblance of Congressional oversight shining a light into the dark corners of the West Wing. Rummy is gone, Gonzales is pretty much toast. Rove and Meiers have to be quaking in their boots right now hoping all those emails really are lost and with Libby guilty on 4 of 5 counts he might sing the Cheney song rather than go to prison.

The Abramoff scandal took new casualties this week. The Pentagon report on the WMD lies told by the administration to scare the shit out of Congress and the American people in order to support the war is a huge nail in the coffin of the neocon cabal that brought us this war of aggression and has even centrists talking "war crimes." Looks like Condie might be getting her very own subpoena soon from Waxman's committee. Even Wolfie has his ass in a crack. As the old Chinese proverb says... "may you live in interesting times."

A Glock for you

Check it out folks - here's some buying advice from the people who brought you the weapon of choice used by the Virginia Tech shooter.

Here's just one of the salient features of the Glock 9: "...the more experienced shooters who do shoot a lot enjoy cheaper ammo prices." "mmm... cheaper ammo - I'll take 10 clips."

I wonder if he spent some time researching his weapon on this website before purchasing the Glock 9mm he used to kill 32 innocent kids.
