Self Destructing Republicans

I love the sight of Republicans self destructing.

Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice (I am looking for a good recipe for Condoleeza Rice) accused Watergate journalist Bob Woodward Monday of inventing a terror warning she got just before 9-11 but the State Department appeared to contradict her.

Senate Majority leader Frist said he learned from briefings that Taliban fighters were too numerous and had too much popular support to be defeated on the battlefield. Huh??? Aren't they the enemy, are we conceding defeat? Talk about "Cut and Run".

The reality of Mark Foley scandal is that it is clear now that every issue in the Bush administration is partisan politics - even the safety of children. Bush loyalists worked to protect Republicans and make Democrats look bad. Sadly no one who had the opportunity and access to evidence ever acted upon it and risk the upcoming elections. To protect Congressional pages from the inappropriate advances of former Rep. Mark Foley was not important.

By the way, it is reported that former Congressman Mark Foley's campaign committee, Friends of Mark Foley, contributed $1,000 to Boy Gov Blunt's campaign in 2004. Blunt was quick to "donate the money to charity".

Keep on self destructing....

Meanwhile, the repubs race to pass the 'Military Commissions Act of 2006" which suspends Habeas Corpus; that is, any Constitutional right we have "during a time of war.

I still won't believe it until I see them actually voted out of office. I figured Kerry had Bush beat by a mile in 2004, especially after the debates where Bush appeared to my naked eyes and ears to be a damned fool idiot. Didn't the rest of the country see this, too? Yet it was the second election in a row where voting system errors in Ohio and Florida mysteriously all turned in favor of the repubs.

And to no one's surprise, the conservative media didn't blink an eye.

It's also a little funny that Woodward is printing old news in his book.

Bush an idiot — who knew?
Bush doesn't hear dissent — who knew?
Bush tunes out bad news on Iraq — who knew?
Cheney filters everything Bush knows — who knew?
Bob Woodward is an opportunistic asshole, finally telling the truth after writing two glowing books about Bush's leadership and vision — who knew?

We did, and we haven't forgotten.
