Bush By The Numbers
Categories :: Anti-War :: Bush Administration :: Iraq

The latest numbres show the Bush Regime is still in the toilet of public opinion.




08/30/05 :: By P. M. Carpenter
The MSM as the president’s enabler
Categories :: Iraq So now we’ve read the altogether expected news of the bleak prospects facing Iraq’s “founding fathers” in coming together over a workable constitution. Nevertheless the news continues to be framed in Bush’s surrealism - a mindset that has defined this...


08/29/05 :: By Bonnie Yarbrough
Stealth Governance
Categories :: Bush Administration :: Congress :: Social Security

With Katrina barreling up through the Mississippi Delta, there’s another “big blow” taking shape on radar screens focused toward Capital Hill. And yet another example of governance by stealth: when you can’t win, steal what you really want and proclaim it a victory.




08/26/05 :: By P. M. Carpenter
Caricature assassination
Categories :: The right loves to make fun of those on the left it regards as goofy. You know the roll call: Michael Moore, Al Franken, Jane Fonda and assorted others who occasionally say things even they regret. But not to worry,...


08/25/05 :: By S.M. Dixon
U.S. Troop Withdrawals Announced -- Again
Categories :: Iraq

The Bushites either can't make up their mind, or can't control the U.S. military.




08/24/05 :: By P. M. Carpenter
Sometimes I sits and thinks
Categories :: George W. Bush As I recall it was Henry David Thoreau who protested the reading of newspapers not only because of their sensationalism, but because when it comes to actually understanding events, the exercise is ultimately futile. A deep appreciation of any news...


08/22/05 :: By Bonnie Yarbrough
Dueling Frames: Views on Iraq
Categories :: Framing - Foreign Policy :: George W. Bush :: Iraq :: Propaganda/Spin

Two different views of Iraq keep emerging: is it more like World War II or like Vietnam?




08/22/05 :: By Drew Johnston
Thesis: Liberals Kick Ass
Categories :: Satire

We kick so much ass.




08/22/05 :: By Tom Ball

08/22/05 :: By P. M. Carpenter
Fear of loathing
Categories :: Democrats Last Friday the Washington Post’s David Ignatius wrote this increasingly familiar refrain: This should be the Democrats' moment: The Bush administration is caught in an increasingly unpopular war; its plan to revamp Social Security is fading into oblivion; its deputy...

Olympic doublespeak: A perfect 10 in training
Categories :: “Iraqis are taking control of their country, building a free nation that can govern itself, sustain itself and defend itself. And we’re helping Iraqis succeed,” said our president in a carefree radio speech last Saturday delivered between carefree bike rides....


08/18/05 :: By Bob Kendall
Anti-Bush Campaign Growing
Categories :: Bush Administration

While U.S. service personnel are fighting and dying in Iraq, just as they did in Vietnam. Anti-war activists seek to confront White House resident George Bush to ask a simple question, “Why did the United States go to war in Iraq, and why are they still there?”




08/18/05 :: By P. M. Carpenter
All the wrong moves
Categories :: Once again Democrats are agonizing over tactics. The spectacle is even more agonizing to watch, because it’s so unnecessary. The National Abortion Rights Action League launched the Democratic Party’s latest introspection with televised distortions about a Supreme Court nominee that...


08/16/05 :: By P. M. Carpenter
Gingrich on any given Sunday
Categories :: Last week at a Capitol Hill gathering of GOP staffers, Newt Gingrich lectured that liberals have the advantage in “speed, cleverness and shallowness.” He also noted in casual contradiction - that being a chief advantage of conservatives - that liberals...


08/12/05 :: By Drew Johnston
On Conservative Humor
Categories :: Blogging on Blogging :: Humor :: Theories

Conservatives who aren't funny and the liberals who enable them.




08/12/05 :: By P. M. Carpenter
Republican Porkers
Categories :: The recently passed, fiscal joke of a transportation bill crafted by our “conservative” government brought to mind some interesting reading of a few years back. Liberals can say what they like about David Frum, the erstwhile axis-of-evil speechwriter, but before...


08/11/05 :: By S.M. Dixon
A 9/11 Cover-Up Exposed?
Categories :: Bush Administration

New evidence suggests that 9/11 was more preventable than previously known.




08/11/05 :: By P. M. Carpenter
Heaps of “unhelpfulness”
Categories :: As promised by the Bush administration, democracy is popping up all over in Iraq - or popping in, in some cases, and rather rudely. This week a band of roughly 100 armed, Shiite militia thugs escorted Baghdad’s new mayor into...


08/10/05 :: By Bob Kendall
Why Does George Bush Insist upon Calling the Iraq War the War on Terror?
Categories :: Bush Administration

A Miami Herald columnist suggests that George Bush is “delusional.” I would suggest that George Bush is simply recognizing that by calling the unnecessary Iraq War at this point the war on terror, he smoothly makes the transition. Bush demands the power of a president using the world war to give him the ultimate war powers in every aspect of our lives.




08/10/05 :: By P. M. Carpenter
If you can fake sincerity....
Categories :: New York’s U.S. Senate race is shaping up as a classic Republican challenge. Which is to say it’s starting dirty, will get dirtier and, of course, will thrust onto the back burner any actual issues. As I said, it’s vintage...


08/09/05 :: By P. M. Carpenter
NYT slips into FOXism
Categories :: Sometimes you run across a newspaper “analysis” whose resemblance to a FOX news story leaves you slackjawed - a story whose omissions define it more than the content. One expects this level of print journalism in the administration’s unofficial outlets...

Robin Cook, RIP
Categories :: Obituaries

The cause of world peace and international justice sustained a tragic blow Saturday afternoon when former British Foreign Secretary Robin Cook died while hill walking with his wife in his native Scotland. He was 59.




08/08/05 :: By P. M. Carpenter
Kill ‘em with kindness
Categories :: It was the brilliant attorney and early 20th-century American statesman Elihu Root who once suggested the way of proper counsel: “About half the practice of a decent lawyer consists in telling would-be clients that they are damned fools and should...


08/05/05 :: By Bob Kendall
A Poem Dedicated to the Republican Robots
Categories :: Poetry Tagged “Ditto Heads” by an Ex-Drug Addict (We Hope He’s Ex!) Patty-cake, Patty-cake Republican man Voting with Bush as fast as you can Now Congress claims their morals are so high Catching a baseball star in a “steroid” lie Fantasizing...

The Emperor Strikes Back
Categories :: “They won’t take my blankie. They won’t, they won’t, they won’t,” sputtered Master George with pouty lips. “Now, now, dear. Everything’s okay,” soothed his nanny, Ms. Hughes. “We’ll put ‘war’ back into your little talks right away. Then how ‘bout...


08/04/05 :: By P. M. Carpenter
Any means to an end(run)
Categories :: If ever there was bipedal disproof of “intelligent design,” George W. Bush is it. So it was only fitting that this poster boy for the monumentally simplistic would become the nation’s leading spokesman for the reintroduction of medieval theo-biology into...


08/04/05 :: By Bob Kendall
Have Politicians Exploited the Ten Commandments?
Categories :: Bush Administration

When Bill Clinton was President, the Republican eyes focused on the commandment, “Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery.”




08/03/05 :: By S.M. Dixon
Those Last Throes Are a Doozy
Categories :: Anti-War :: Bush Administration

The Quagmire is STILL going badly... hence the term "quagmire."




08/03/05 :: By P. M. Carpenter
“Never mind”
Categories :: The Bush administration’s scamming of Congress and the American public, not to mention the world, just keeps on rollin’. Nothing seems to make a dent in it - not shame, not exposure, not reality. And what immediately followed the Bolton...


08/02/05 :: By S.M. Dixon
Another Bush Lie Exposed
Categories :: Bush Administration

Another attempt to lie us into a war... but this one looks to be a miserable failure.




08/02/05 :: By P. M. Carpenter
The joy of being Republican
Categories :: Presidential memo: “Because of partisan delaying tactics by a handful of senators, John was unfairly denied the up-or-down vote that he deserves.” So poof, John is now Ambassador Bolton. Naturally the Republican Senate will defend the recess appointment as an...


08/01/05 :: By P. M. Carpenter
Satan’s liberals
Categories :: I now know that it is indeed possible to die laughing, because last week I damn near lost control of the car as I doubled up with laughter at hearing Tom DeLay on NPR bemoan the terrible, terrible strong-arm tactics...
