"See you at Gitmo"

Keith Olbermann is my hero again and again.


Keith Olbermann, thank you for saying all of the things that need to be said in such a public context and with such courage of conviction.


As for the kool-aid drinkers in The New Amerika – just keep believing what you are told:

WAR IS PEACE
FREEDOM IS SLAVERY
IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH.

Funny Stuff. Use the restroom first; you could piss yourself.

Thanks, Asshole. Not on topic as such, but South Park is always good.

We are not all Kool-Aid drinkers, but the sane ones are being mightily overpowered by the crazies. Election Day is in 2 weeks, and we are keeping our fingers crossed. MMG

Nique, I did not mean to imply that you are all kool-aid drinkers. Indeed, I know that you are not.

As for election day, I don't have high hopes that a different bunch of politicians is going to be any better.

we can only hope - there is a growing groundswell of disapproval for the current administration's tactics - NPR reported it at 66% today, and the poll came from traditionally "red" states. Plus, if the Dems take the House & the Senate, Bush is truly a lame duck. 14 days & counting...

Just because people think Bush is an asshole does not mean they will vote.
Just because people think Bush is an asshole does not mean they will vote Democrat.
Just because people press the touchscreen where it says Democrat or Libertarian doesn't mean their votes are going to register as anything other than Republican.
Just because a different party of corrupt and evil politicians gains "control" does not mean anything will change.
Don't forget all of the legislation and executive orders of the past few years which will help to make sure that no president is ever a lame duck.
Nothing is going to change.
But having said all that, I hope that you are right and I am wrong.

No touchscreens in CA - we may be wiggy, but we are not stupid. Plus, the news about Ohio and other places is getting out in the more mainstream press - check out the articles RFK Jr. wrote for Rolling Stone - they've actually made it to the front page of the LA & NY Times. Maybe I'm a cockeyed optimist, but it is always darkest before the dawn. However, you shall always have first right to say "I told you so."

My response to you today is in haiku:

I won’t mind being
In Gitmo, ‘cause I’ll be all
“Nique, I told you so.”
