The Dumbest Conservatives in America
Categories :: Blowhards :: Entertainment :: Outrages

Quite a few conservative types seem to be royally pissed off that Oliver Stone and Steven Spielberg are still being allowed to make movies, a trend of grave importance that is certainly more important than any mere potential act of treason by a high-ranking White House advisor. Here's why they're mad.

Update: Trickle-Down News
Categories :: Bush Administration :: Framing 101 :: Hypocrisy :: Outrages

Some details are beginning to emerge about the President's plan to destroy Roosevelt's successful Social Security safety net. Early signs of the marketing, the campaign process, and the rhetoric are troubling.

Bush Draft (Part II)
Categories :: Bush-Cheney 2004 :: Lies :: Military :: Outrages

During the 2004 campaign, the Bush troglodytes were fond of asserting, "The only people I've ever heard suggest a draft are the Democrats." -- obviously implying that it was actually the Dems who sought to send your children to their death in various irrelevant foreign lands. Well duh! Of course the Republicans aren't going to admit what they're really intending to do. Hasn't anyone been paying attention for the last four years? Sure enough, with the military heinously overstretched and the situation in Iraq in a deterioration freefall, the Repuglinuts have vamped up their efforts -- shifting into phase two of their 'shaft 'em with the draft' campaign for global domination.

Generally speaking, no matter how crappy or tumultuous the year has been, the Holidays often bring us short-lived cheer that carries us into the New Year.

"The Others": Marching Backward
Categories :: Election 2004 :: Framing 101 :: Hypocrisy :: Outrages :: Progressive Strategy

With Republicans smugly observing that Democrats seem to be in disarray these days, some suspect that we are both living in a parallel universe with two separate realities. Pundits have said that while Democrats were in angst at Disney World, “Glibs” were on the ground in Ohio, and bloggers from all over are still trying to figure out where the front is. For most of us, the sound of marching boots is hard to ignore and our compasses are working. . .
Here are 20 preliminary points for drafting the rules of engagement:

No Fairy Godfathers at This Ball
Categories :: Outrages

Despite troop frustrations voiced to Rumsfeld for adequate protection, the “ball” preparations are in full swing. Meanwhile our troops are scrounging through the trash for basic daily protection that our government has failed to provide.

Thanks for the Memories
Categories :: Outrages

Black Friday is here, and the holiday spin has begun. . .
Here at PS, however, the memories springing from brain stems still functional for the moment are focused on other issues: 1) ongoing investigations of balloting fraud and other election irregularities, 2) GOP power abuses, 3) CIA resignations, and 4) White House leaks. The grafs below hit some of these highlights.

Bush Purges CIA of Those who are 'Disloyal'
Categories :: Outrages

The White House has ordered the new CIA director, Porter Goss, to purge the agency of officers believed to have been disloyal to President George W. Bush or of leaking damaging information to the media about the conduct of the Iraq war and the hunt for Osama bin Laden, according to knowledgeable sources.
