McCain & Lieberman to launch "Arrogant Has-Been Party"

David Brooks dying to jump from sinking GOP ship
David Brooks: 'McCain-Lieberman Party' still emerging
According to New York Times columnist David Brooks, the
"three major parties in America" are "the Democratic Party, the Republican Party
and the McCain-Lieberman Party," and "all were on display Tuesday night."
"The Democratic Party was represented by its rising force -- Ned Lamont on a
victory platform with the net roots exulting before him and Al Sharpton smiling
just behind," Brooks opines in Thursday's edition of The Times. "The Republican
Party was represented by its collapsing old guard -- scandal-tainted Tom DeLay
trying to get his name removed from the November ballot."

"And the McCain-Lieberman Party was represented by Joe
Lieberman himself, giving a concession speech that explained why polarized
primary voters shouldn't be allowed to define the choices in American politics,"
Brooks continues.

If this is all the imagination Mr. Brooks can muster, I'm sorry but no thanks. Moderate Republicans need to realize that the immoderate Republicans are corrupt, jaded, mediocre, hateful, incompetent, bloodthirsty, Mammoniacal, greedy, self-righteous, ego-centric, micranimous, war-profiteering, war-mongering, murderous, liars and thieves. And many of them can't wait for WWIII. I guess they hate children as well.
Moderate Republicans need to sit on their hands this election, and help restore some goodness and principle to the system. Don't let your party be taken over by evil fools like Hagee and Limbaugh, who are paid royally to lie lie lie...and stir up hatred. Moderate Republicans are better than that. Time to prove it before it, and you, are too late.

David Brooks, whom I like and respect, is also better than a watered down middling faux center party. Lieberman is a Rightwing ideologue who loves money way too much. Come on David. Face it. The Democrats are better people. Instead of licking the boot of some worshipped superior in hopes for more and more dollars, Democrats look out for those less fortunate, and can easily tell the bribesmiths to go shove it. In other words Democrats are more like Jesus, Gandhi, Abraham, Martin and John... while the Immoderate Republicans are only like Abramoff, Hagee and Rush.

Democrats are the stewards of the earth, like Gore. And stewards of the poor, like Edwards.
Princes of Peace, not Presidents of War.

Lieberman once said: "If you want to live like a Republican, you need to vote like a Democrat."
I take it he wants to live like a Republican. I guess he is impressed by the corrupt, jaded, mediocre, bloodthirsty, Mammoniacal, greedy, selfish, ego-centric, micranimous, war-profiteering, war-mongering liars and thieves.

Who knows. Maybe he was talking about moderate Republicans, but there is a reek of obsolescence among this diminishing sect.

Why is George hiding? II

Well I guess my intuition was not on high alert for nought. Mr Fear hath raised his ugly head again, but remember...there is nothing to fear but Mr. Fear himself. And he can't be everywhere at once. As you will recall, fear causes people to do irrational and stupid, even evil, things. Screw fear.

After 9/11, a lot of people said there was a "failure of imagination". Okay then...let's use our imagination...

Yesterday, Tony Snow says: "A Vote For Lamont Is A Vote For Another 9/11"...and then what happens today? Oh shit! Big terror plot foiled. Red Alert! Red Alert! "We are at war"...
In other words...don't go anti-war on us!

But the timing? Right after the right-winger gets the boot? Of course. This is BushWorld. It is how terrorist governments operate. Oops! Did I apply too much imagination? Well, the administration told us, in so many words, that we need to use it more.

I know that Tony Snow realizes that he is lying. You can hear it in his voice. Maybe he wishes he could have worked for Clinton, who didn't try to scare Americans, but rather tried to lift us up...and did. Peace. Great economy. Internet. As opposed to what? War. Stagflation. Self-terrorism.

But back to the timing...
England knew about these operations (they say) for months. Why act now? Was it in order for Tony Snow to recall 9/11? It has happened before.

Juan Cole says that Bush has to do his war on Syria and Iran before this November, since the Democrats are not likely to fund such nonsense when the power changes hands.

I guess the point is...don't get fooled again.

U.K. Terror Plot Foiled Just a Day after Lieberman's
Defeat. Coincidence?


The pattern continues. A terrorist plot is uncovered just as the masses start to question national security strategy. The day after Senate Democrats brought a vote to pull out of Iraq, we catch a few idiots in Miami who were supposedly trying to blow up the Sears Tower, despite the fact that they lacked the means and ability to do so. Then there were the guys busted for supposedly plotting to blow up a New York subway exactly a year after the London bus bombings. And don't forget the release of new Osama bin Laden tapes just before the 2004 election as well as the very day after the Supreme Court decision striking down the Guantanamo Bay military tribunals. And now today, a few men in England were arrested for a plan to blow up planes flying to America, just a day after Connecticut voters flatly rejected Joe Lieberman and the war in Iraq.

We certainly can't deny that there may have indeed been plans
to commit these acts. But the timings of the arrest announcements are awfully
suspicious. All three were still in the works and had been monitored for several
months by very capable intelligence agencies. While the exact nature of today's
arrests is still unclear, none of the plans seemed to have been immediate or
imminent threats. The decision of when to intervene has been arbitrary, making
the coincidental timings pretty convenient. (And the question of whether some of
them are "real threats," such as the Liberty City "Insane Clown Posse" remain to
be seen.)

Imagine a conversation late Tuesday night between Bush and his
British Prime Minister lapdog, just as Ned Lamont declares victory. "Yo, Blair,"
Bush says while scarfing down a dinner role. "I gotta to do something about this
sh*t. Can you finally arrest those suspected terrorists you told me about? This
election business is ruining my vacation! I know you're chillin' in the
Caribbean yourself right now, but it sure would be great if you could make a few
calls for me ASAP."

Don't buy it? Consider this quote from a Reuters article on the story: "President George W. Bush had known about the investigation for several days, was briefed about it regularly and knew the arrests were coming, a senior administration official said." Both countries are surely monitoring several terrorist leads that could lead to arrests at any time. The British group would have been stopped
eventually, but there has been absolutely no indication why it had to be

Asked what steps he recommended for the current hostilities to be brought to an end and a lasting peace established, the well-know thinker responded..

"The basic steps are well understood: a cease-fire and exchange of prisoners; withdrawal of occupying forces; continuation of the 'national dialogue' within Lebanon; and acceptance of the very broad international consensus on a two-state settlement for Israel-Palestine, which has been unilaterally blocked by the United States and Israel for thirty years. There is, as always, much more to say, but those are the essentials."

Why is George hiding in Texas? (Think 9/11) : The week the world ended

Prior to the 2004 election, I posted this warning:

Democrats Win! World Erupts in Celebration!
Celebration, relief and good cheer spread across the globe, as war-happy madman is replaced by sane and beautiful leaders who respect all peoples.


Republicans win. America goes to war with Iran.
Foolwells get their Armageddon. Millions die needlessly. A handful of suits reap windfall profits.

Well, Republicans are having a tough go at it, and it IS, after all, an election year, and Pigboy Hagee keeps screaming about Armageddon, and George keeps talking about root causes (insinuating Syria and Iran, you know those evil people, as opposed to us good people) you know what? I have felt like I have been hallucinating lately -- probably the cold medicine -- but things feel all eerie like. Sorta like that fateful September, only earlier in the month.

My intuition was spot on back then. A week before the incident, I wrote a post called, "The week the world ended". And no, I had no inside knowledge. Only a fairly keen intuition.

I certainly hope that hiding out in Texas, George isn't going to allow more bad things to happen to our country. Things are bad enough already, thank you very much. But today I hear that Syria is looking forward to a larger war, and that President Logan, I mean Olmert, has basically said they were going to war with Iran and Syria.

I am ashamed of our country and the leadership. Surely God is not on our side, no matter what Pigboy might yell to the contrary. Pigboy is just our Taliban. God is Love, remember. Not hate. Prince of Peace, not War. Where are our own hearts and minds?

What ever happened to "Thou shalt not kill"? Was that a joke? Well, I, for one, still believe it, even though George and his oil raiders have long abandoned it.

Everyone will die, but only the sad and evil few die having murdered. If there must be Amerigeddon, may the truly evil people be swept up, and the innocent children of God left out of it.


A plot to blow up planes in flight from the UK to the US and commit "mass murder on an unimaginable scale" has been disrupted, Scotland Yard has said.

Domesday Book is now online!


Loserman Paying for Kissing Bush Ass

I guess no one ever told Joe that if you pull on your face, it will become droopy. Or that if you pull on your pants and find your balls have undescended, it may be time to take a break from the Democratic Party, Stewards of Truth and Peace.

I sorta feel sorry for Joe, but lookit. Surely he has squirrel away some of that PAC money, and surely he can bask in former greatness. But, like Cokie Roberts, he is so yesterday. And his hindbrain support of the war is, well, embarrassing. Who removed this man's trendbone?

Ned Lamont is somewhat wooden, but at least he has a library at Harvard named after his family. Can't be too bad. Even has it's own Henry Moore! opposition party is a good thing. Especially when the opposition is so incompetent, backward, wrongheaded, bloodthirsty, greedy, mediocre, and Texan.

Bloggers bring you down? So sorry!
