A key element of the drawdown plans, not mentioned in the President's public statements, is that the departing American troops will be replaced by American airpower.

Two years after the storms, most hurricane rebuilding funds have yet to be spent -- much less reached those in need.

When pressed on the slow pace of recovery in the Gulf Coast, President Bush insists the federal government has fulfilled its promise to rebuild the region. The proof, he says, is in the big check the federal government signed to underwrite the recovery -- allegedly more than $116 billion. But residents of the still-devastated Gulf Coast are left wondering whether the check bounced.

Will Durst: Rove Bye Bye

Written by
Karl Rove, Bush's brain, quit last week. And no, he hasn't been replaced, so yes, you could say the cavity remains empty. To put it another way: Voldermort has left the building. Darth Vader took off his helmet. Proof positive that Satan had more than just a passing acquaintance with the Pillsbury Doughboy has exited stage right. This sudden shift of malodorous winds has caused liberals to shiver in separation anxiety knowing they're going to have to look elsewhere to assuage their demon jones, as they no longer have the pale pudgy strategist as target for their limp verbal projectiles.

I just love hearing Bush denote people
Who did become known as boat people


You don't have to see the R behind their names to know when a Repuglican is pontificating -- there are those "catch phrases" that immediately identify their partisan nature -- "our motives are pure, at the end of the day, and trust me" are just a few laughable comments they use to try and justify their latest lies!

Wrap yourself in the flag
And later you can seem to
Have the big picture & say
History will redeem you.

The USA's military spending is now close to $2 billion a day. This fall, the country will begin its seventh year of continuous war with no end in sight. On the horizon is the very real threat of a massive air assault on Iran. And few in Congress seem willing or able to articulate a rejection of the warfare state.

Eric Harrington: Talking Points '08

by Eric Harrington

With the elections approaching, there is endless speculation as to what message the Democratic Party can bring to the contest that can stem the tide of ignorance and fear and combat the Republican slander factory.


Just to elaborate a little on experience versus judgment! Take a look at the most experienced bunch of ignoramuses ever in leadership positions in America's government -- where exactly has their experience gotten us -- in a never-ending insane war that never should have been! As a matter of fact, they weren't even intelligent enough to follow their own advice -- Dick Cheney 1994, "if we were to invade Iraq, it would become a quagmire"! So much for "experience"!
