Ridge was never invited to sit in on National Security Council meetings; was “blindsided” by the FBI in morning Oval Office meetings because the agency withheld critical information from him; found his urgings to block Michael Brown from being named head of the emergency agency blamed for the Hurricane Katrina disaster ignored; and was pushed to raise the security alert on the eve of President Bush’s re-election, something he saw as politically motivated and worth resigning over.Full Story... →
What’s the latest word from conservative whackosphere? Barack Obama was channeling George W. Bush when he gave the two standing orders to use force to rescue Captain Phillips. Barack drilled down into his inner cowboy and did exactly what George W. Bush would have done!
It’s pretty clear, isn’t it?
LOL. Right. I’ve had plenty of conversations lately with friends and other lefty bloggers about how incredibly easy it has become to make fun of the right. So much so that I generally don’t even feel like doing it. It’s no longer sporting. Fish in barrel and all that. […]Full Story... →
Apparently nobody does. Funny how, in light of the bonus outrage, nobody calls it “The Paulson Plan” anymore. Hard to make political hay out of something if you have to bash your own side in order to get to your opponent I guess.

I’m a big believer in redemption. I never expected the numbers of GOP defections this cycle though. Seems like everybody and their brother is jumping ship and seeking to get on the O-train. You know what? I welcome them all. It will take coalition of the willing to fix this nasty Bush mess. Scott McClellan, Welcome aboard:

“From the very beginning I have said I am going to support the candidate that has […]Full Story... →
In the VP debate last night I looked at my wife after Palin said nuclear and said, “Oh shit. Not another one!”. She, of course, said nookular! Apparently this is a recurring problem that the campaign has been dealing with:
I would think they’d want to prevent her from saying this given it is a direct link to Bush. I’m just disappointed she didn’t say new-clear! That’d would have been sweet.Full Story... →
