An Illustrated Guide to Mendacity and Folly in the Imperium Americanum

So what does that make us, the unreal America, or the real un-Americans?

Bob Clampett Homage After 'Porky In Wackyland'

Bob Clampett Homage After

So here we are with the last of the Dodos. Which one is the bigger Dodo, Sarah Palin, who thinks that real Americans ‘tolerate’ homosexuals, want victims of incest or rape to have children they had no choice in conceiving, think evolution is just some silly scientific fiction, don’t want blacks, latinos or poor whites to vote, and think that other Americans who disagree with them should be called terrorists and murdered (at least until the librul media found out about it and then she said she wouldn’t tolerate that kind of talk after smiling at it all last week), or John McCain, who chose this bigot as his running mate and now has to make believe he’s “proud” of her so he can ride on HER coattails. DRILL, BABY, DRILL! I always assumed that REAL Americans were not only “tolerant” but proud of our national diversity. Guess I just haven’t spent enough time at the strip mall.

(USA TODAY)Bush: Enemies are ‘evil,’ but not insane

(MercuryNews) Faulting the White House is similar to appeasing Nazis, Rumsfeld says

Oh, yes, we are gearing up for the November election, all right, gotta make sure the populace is good and scared. More if you’re not with us, you’re against us, let’s make believe that we’re fighting the Nazis and anyone who thinks we’re wrong is like Neville Chamberlain. In the meantime, we’re playing by Herman Goering’s playbook.

UPDATE: Little did I know that Our Beloved Bush was going to go on and on in this mode for several days running…even Republican polls must be showing them in danger of losing either the House or the Senate. Our madcap Big Brother acknowledged our illegal “black prisons” (secret torture gardens in remote, non-U.S. countries to avoid scrutiny and looking as guilty as sin) by bringing 14 prisoners to Gitmo (gee, what an improvement) (AP) Bush acknowledges secret CIA prisons and now wants to “amend” the War Crimes Act to specify exactly WHAT kind of torture is illegal so we can freely practice any OTHER kind of torture we have a mind to (AFP) US wants to amend law barring degrading treatment of detainees, since the so-called vagueness of the ban against torture and degrading and humiliating treatment is deemed, in that horrible locution of CorporateSpeak, unacceptable. (WashPost) War Crimes Act Changes Would Reduce Threat Of Prosecution. Geoffrey Corn, former US Army legal expert, told the Post that Common Article 3 was, according to its written history, “left deliberately vague because efforts to define it would invariably lead to wrongdoers identifying ‘exceptions,’ and because the meaning was plain — treat people like humans and not animals or objects.” Which is exactly what the intent of the amendment is…

So Now It’s Disgraceful To Be The New York Times, But Not The Wall Street Journal?

(AFP) US secretly probes financial records to track terrorists

(AFP) US lawmaker demands criminal probe of New York Times

(AP) Argument against report puzzles NYT editors

(AFP) Bush assails ‘disgraceful’ terrorism banking revelations

(AFP) US House backs Bush, not New York Times on secrecy

(AP) NYT: Bank program not news to terrorists


Now Let Me See: Since 9/11, Bush has been telling us that we are tracking the terrrrrists by tracking the money, a perfectly legitimate and reasonable way of investigating them. The NY Times revealed he was actually telling the truth for once, using perfectly legitimate and PUBLICLY AVAILABLE means. The LA Times and Wall Street Journal, both also following the story, break their own versions. Bush and Cheney calls the Times disgraceful and some ass in the House accuses the paper of treason and the House votes a non-binding slap at the Times for revealing the big non-secret secret. So why the hubbub? Is it simply Republican grandstanding to please the conservative base before the ’06 elections? Or is there something NON-legit about the probe the Times revealed? Gee, if you can track moneys to terrorists, it wouldn’t be hard to track moneys to liberal causes, track investments, and other transactions that it would be illegal to use the power of the government to trace…Or am I just paranoid about this administration that abuses its power every opportunity it gets?
