Vick's Got Nothing On BushCo. for Dog Abuse

If this administration were a dog it would be dead from whatever the animal version of shaken-baby syndrome is. At every turn Bush, Cheney and their coterie of Dementors has wagged the hell out of the dog with upgraded terror color alerts and bogus warnings.

Perhaps it was news that Bush is now less popular than the Head Death Eater Cheney, but suddenly - from out of nowhere - terrorists are conducting "dry-runs," practicing how to sneak explosives aboard airliners. Of course there are no specifics and TSA workers are told to watch out for "ordinary objects," including - I shit you not - block cheese.

Can somebody in Congress - anyone, really - just stand up and throw down a big bullshit flag on these bastards? Enough already.

Nancy Pelosi, are you paying attention at all? Pull that fucking rule book out and put Impeachment back on the table. You and the rest of your Democratic colleagues are standing by while the worst President - the worst administration - in our history is slowly destroying our country.

Bush has to go.

Romney Accidentally Reveals "Secret" Republican Plan to Destroy Our Government

Of course it's a poorly kept secret and anyone really paying attention already knows it, but I'm not sure any Republican has so baldly stated the case before.

If you've ever wondered why BushCo. has repeatedly assigned unexperienced political hacks to head important government agencies or continually interfered in the operation of formerly effective offices, wonder no more. In disparaging Democratic initiatives at universal healthcare he said the following, letting slip the real purpose of Rebublican meddling:

At a town hall meeting in Exeter later Sunday, he said, "I don't want the guys who ran the (Hurricane) Katrina cleanup running my health care system."
Of course the "guys who ran... Katrina..." were all Republicans; appointees who wouldn't know a cyclone from a vacuum cleaner. But that's the whole idea: these guys want government to fail. They want to be able to say things like Romney did, above. And they'll use the failures that they've caused to justify handing everything over to the private business sector.

Where their political contributors can profit the most.

Comfortably Numb

How else to explain the lack of outrage - or at least condescending laughter - over Michael Chertoff's latest statement? Remember, this is the same guy who oversaw the response to Hurricane Katrina:

The United States remains safe after the attack at a Scottish airport and two foiled car bombs in London, and no raising of the terror alert status is planned, Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff said Monday.
The problem is that while the public may be numb to the continually growing list of things this administration has screwed up, the lack of outrage, or at least pointed questioning, leads BushCo. to think they can continue to get away with it.

Chertoff's a guy who should be wandering, drunk or stoned, from homeless shelter to homeless shelter after being frog-marched out of his office under a court order to never get within 100 miles of Washington DC for the rest of his life.

But he's still around telling us how safe we are.

Those levees around the airports are sure to keep the bad guys out.
