Deadbeat States For Bush

This is enlightening: The deadbeat states (i.e., those that receive more money than they pay in federal taxes) overwhelmingly supported Bush, while those states that paid out more than they took in preferred Kerry.

A Kinder, Gentler Attorney General

Here's Alberto's torture memo. Meanwhile, in other news, the usual cast of whackjobs professes outrage that Gonzales might actually follow the law if appointed AG.

The Next Crusade?

It's not as crazy a question as it sounds. Two members of Bush's "Evil Empire" are Arab countries, and although Bush invaded Iraq on false pretenses and is rattling the saber at Iran, he is willfully turning a blind eye to the greatest "nuke-u-ler" threat against the U.S.--North Korea.

Add to that the fact that Bush is on record as claiming that God chose him to be president. And don't forget General Boykin, who has been quoted as claiming that God, not the voters, elected Bush and that Bush's God is bigger than Islam's God.

And there's that right-wing uber-skank, who argued as follows:

"We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity."

Let's just hope it's four more years and not 400...

A Warning Forgotten

President Eisenhower's 1961 Farewell Address:

In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.

We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together.


Hunter Thompson Compares Bush With Nixon

From Rolling Stone:

Richard Nixon looks like a flaming liberal today, compared to a golem
like George Bush. Indeed. Where is Richard Nixon now that we finally
need him?

If Nixon were running for president today, he would be seen as a
"liberal" candidate, and he would probably win. He was a crook and a
bungler, but what the hell? Nixon was a barrel of laughs compared to
this gang of thugs from the Halliburton petroleum organization who are
running the White House today -- and who will be running it this time
next year, if we (the once-proud, once-loved and widely respected
"American people") don't rise up like wounded warriors and whack those
lying petroleum pimps out of the White House on November 2nd.

More Right-Wing Bias in the Media

The San Antonio Express-News offers this Sunday Headline:

"CAN WE ALL GET ALONG?

The Pledge of Allegience calls us 'indivisible.' Try telling that to
the Democrats who just lost again."
