At the end of my BuzzFlash Commentary last week, I said: "In my view, the Democratic Left has to take a deep breath here and remember two things: who the real enemy is and how easily can one of the most gung-ho supporters of the war put the Senate back in Republican hands. Wouldn't that be fun, my fellow lefties? Inhofe back at Environment, Specter back at Judiciary, McConnell as Majority Leader, and so on down the line. Yum. What a gas. Let's not do another Nader folks. The Congressional Democrats ain't perfect, but, please consider the alternative."


More proof America is in deep trouble! "President Bush is more convinced than ever of his righteousness. Friends of his from Texas were shocked recently to find him nearly wild-eyed, thumping himself on the chest three times while he repeated 'I am the president!' He also made it clear he was setting Iraq up so his successor could not get out of 'our country's destiny.'"

He faces 235 years in prison
Unless he decides to cop a plea
If found guilty on all counts,
He'd also have to join the GOP.

When John F. Kennedy was running for president and asked how he became a war hero, he had the wit and grace to reply, "It was entirely involuntary. They sank my boat."

Generally human nature is that you don't want to be angry all the time, or depressed. In a way, that's on our side. That's the only power we have -- the power to mock them, which means you're taking the power back. You're not letting them make you afraid and depressed. A lot of people say it's the only way you can deal with what's happened to this country over the last however-many-years that Bush has been in, because it is depressing, and it is horrible.

Dave Lindorff: Iraq (and Iran) Rag

By Dave Lindorff

To the tune of "Fixin' to Die Rag" (Words by Dave Lindorff, with apologies to Country Joe MacDonald)

Come on all you fine women and men
Uncle Sam needs your help again
Bush has put us in a big train wreck
Off in a place they call Iraq
So forget that job and pick up your gun
We're gonna have a whole lot of fun.

The sudden rise of Fred Thompson as a leading Republican candidate for president shows that the Republican leadership still does not understand their impending implosion as a national political party. Thompson is a "sex-up" version of a failed product. With Thompson, voters are getting the same old package of ideologies and policies that have been total disasters for the vast majority of Americans with new wrappings. Fred Thompson is much more "Bush-lite" than the second coming of Ronald Reagan.

Supposedly we are in a sustained economic recovery and have been since 2002. Part of this is Bush hot air and the Republican Noise Machine, which the media quotes verbatim. By a certain measure, however, it's real.
