Now, we have more Republicans claiming regular taxi drivers are facists (by way of Rumsfeld’s definition). What’s next? The teachers and education administrators who think that the PERFECT “No Child Left Behind” law needs adjusting? Seriously, I’m going to form a pool on who gets branded facist/terrorist next.

Strange how your loyal Republican veterans even think that using these words is remarkably uncouth and destructive.

Oh Technorati!

Stop linking me to the rest of the world, damn you!

Just yesterday, my dashboard reports I had 40+ something hits because I was referenced there. A few days ago, it was 20+ something hits from there.

I stab at thee!

Okay, now I know we’re all a little upset at the big Gee Dubya, but this recent MSNBC Hardball thing where they accuse the President of “not reading or being able to read” is a little low even for liberals. I blame the station, not the liberals, btw.

Did he read three Shakespeares and a French philosophy book? Well, that’s not really important, is it? I mean, we all fib a bit on what we read, and I’m sure the President reads. I mean, when you are flying all over and you don’t watch TV, you resort to reading books. He may have just … you know … went a little overboard in bragging, is all.

He went to college, for Pete’s sake. I’m sure he reads something for leisure. Whether it’s a Tom Clancy novel or French poetry is really not relevant. What is relevant is that those who do not think he’s incredibly intelligent or very well-spoken don’t sink to his level and start rambling on about bullshit that isn’t important.

Sieg Heil!

Okay, so now I have Rumsfeld and Bush calling me and half the nation “Nazi Defeatists.”

I’m confused – aren’t the two terms, like, totally uncompatible? Facists, last time I checked, don’t believe in defeat. How about just calling us “sympathizing saboteurs”?

Wait, that doesn’t work either.

Better idea – how about NOT insulting people for once and actually doing something constructive?

Oops, I forgot. CONSTRUCTIVE and REPUBLICAN are incompatible.

A Growing Schizm

Well, it looks like what I predicted about two years ago is now happening.

I mean, I’d leave or start working towards my own goals if the rest of my party refused to acknowledge reality, too. Your main man fails to make headway in against falling opinion, even when there’s a positive story in his corner. People aren’t as happy about the economy and they blame it on your party. The only real people standing up for you are all in Utah. And most of all, one of your largest monetary supporters is under investigation for market fraud.

It’s turning out to be a bad year for the Conservative Moralist party who call themselves the GOP. I tried not to be embarrassed for people like Frist, who continues to ignore reality like it’s going to go away if he doesn’t like it. Or the administration, who continues to say one thing, do another, then tell everyone they never said the first thing (although it’s all over the media).

Oh well.

Now Exley is trying to persuade me that the President only skips over people with real issues with his policies because he has to be “polite” and move on to hearing other grieving people who might actually support him and his war. “Lack of time,” they call it. I call it “the President is not interested in listening to people and their criticism of him because it hurts his feelings, so he only fights verbal battles where there are no real battles to be fought.”

I mean, correct me if I’m wrong, but I’m still not seeing a humanitarian in Bush. I’m seeing more of a politician who is trying to kiss babies and widows to raise public opinion about him before he’s officially out of the White House and reality becomes history.

So, I’m reading this article, and I get linked to the THINKPROGRESS comments in response to the printing of this article.

Now, I’m not overly “YAY!” about thinkprogress.com’s commentors, since they tend to do the “F&$king so and so lying, Republican Nazi bastard!” a tad too much.

There is one comment that struck me as incredibly … ignorant, I guess for a lack of a better term.

“Good for President Bush for talking to these family members of fallen warriors. Shows what a good man he is and what a great country this is. Few other leaders in the world would meet with “ordinary” citizens to discusss such matters, let alone have these citizens criticize them to their face. The fact that Dubya is willing to do so shows what a brave and compassionate leader he is.” Comment by Exley — August 25, 2006 @ 5:07 pm

And so the majority of the commentors then go on an insult spree and are totally obnoxious beyond all belief. Some of them are downright funny, some of them are just … lacking. Thus, I had to post my response to the issue:

“Exley, it is obvious from the article that she spoke her mind about both wars. And that she wanted to discuss it with President Bush. But he declined to go into it, for whatever reasons. A good public servant elected by the people, if he/she cared, would take the time to discuss whatever topic the grieving person had if he was sincere about talking with her. Instead, the President declines to discuss these things with people who have serious issues with his policy. He usually hides behind the facade of self-importance and self-righteousness.

Socially, as a civilian, maybe Mr. Bush is a “good person.” As a President, he has failed to show the public that he is, and his sinking reputation only proves it. Like a few other Presidents, Mr. Bush has forgotten that he is an elected official with a duty to the people – all the people – of this country, and therefore, needs to start listening and evolving as a human being to fulfill the role he presently has.

Otherwise, everyone here has the right to think President Bush is hypocritical, lying, egotistical Nazi. And that you are just giving lip-service to Bush because you are afraid you made a mistake by voting for the guy.”

Seriously, if you are going to comment that our President is a “good guy” after all the crap that a lot of people have been through because of him, you better have a better argument than he talks to widows and has a private cry with them. Because that’s not proving anything but the fact he’s a politician who likes to shed an crocodile tear in front of the media.

Dissecting GW’s desperate comments and emotions in press conferences.

Discussing the failures of Intelligence in other countries where it’s almost impossible to spy or pay people to give us correct information (I used to be in Intel – trust me, it’s not because of Intel failures as much as 1. it’s political and you never deliver bad news to the Chief, and 2. building an Intel network in a country that scans its populace daily and hates the West is damn near improbable).

Why politicans continue to believe there’s no harm in combining our government with religious organizations. Which is fine for them as long as Christianity remains the largest religion in the world, but once Islam or another religion starts becoming the main religion in the US, it’s time to seperate Church and State again.
