(HT: Daily Kos for the graphic)
3,520 days after Americans woke up to witness the largest mass casualty of a terrorist attack in our world history, we woke up to the news that the Administration of the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize winner had killed Osama bin Laden, a mastermind and chief financier of the global terrorist network.
Last night, President Obama informed former President George Bush about the capture and killing of Osama bin Laden. President Bush released this statement:
Earlier this evening, President Obama called to inform me that American forces killed Osama bin Laden, […]Full Story... →
Republicans are as predictable as the movement of the solar system.? At the moment, this is manifesting itself in their continued pursuit of the margins of political thought in pursuit of power.? After a moment of reflection in 2009, in 2010 they are all in.
For perhaps two decades now, the GOP has been captive to a hard right core of activists whom official Republicanism uses like whores to win marginal elections, then ignores utterly.? In that period, that core has been the God, guns, and gays neanderthal knuckle dragging rejectionist wing of anti-abortion sexual obsessives.? And yet, abortion remains […]Full Story... →
I always appreciate it when a candidate opens up to questions online, which Jennifer Brunner did today at DailyKos on the subject of President Obama’s Afghanistan speech tomorrow.? I like it even better when the candidate is responsive, which Jennifer was.? When the issue is Afghanistan, and a couple of questions immediately reveal the Hobson’s choice Barack now faces, you really begin to appreciate just how thoroughly George W. Bush fucked up our country.
Bottom line, Jennifer says it’s “Time to Bring Home the Troops”, “as soon as possible”, but when asked how this would affect our pursuit […]Full Story... →

…and thus begins the slow walk back to sanity. Apparently cowboy diplomacy doesn’t work afterall. The shoot ’em up style of the Bush administration (along with many wingnut bloggers who hail such jingoistic antagonism as policy) took a blow today:
Tonight, The Washington Note confirmed that the Bush administration will “ask Congress” to de-list North Korea from America’s “terrorist watch list.” This request will be made on Thursday — if there are no last minute, unexpected interventions.
Chalk one up for reason. Did we say Axis of Evil? Psych!Full Story... →
Rep. Robert Wexler- a Florida Democrat who sits on the House Judiciary Committee- has created a website to gather signatures in support of impeachment hearings for Dick Cheney.
According to the site (wexlerwantshearings.com):
The charges are too serious to ignore. There is credible evidence that the Vice President abused the power of his office, and not only brought us into an unneccesary (sic) war but violated the civil liberties and privacy of American citizens. It is the constitutional duty of Congress to hold impeachment hearings.
Right now he’s received 136,620 signature – still short of his goal of 250,000.
