Bush = Nixon
Politics It's my civic duty to post stuff like this. Check out Moveon's latest public service message, which points out in plain terms to the average American idiot that which has been known quite well for some time now ... Bush is essentially the second coming of the crook Nixon.

We ran him out and it's a matter of shame if we don't do the same to this one as well.

RNC 2004
Politics I came across this while researching an old link I had posted a few years back on TA. It's the most disturbing account of the 2004 RNC arrests I have seen.

I highly encourage everyone to read this account. I have to say I'm almost embarrassed that the whole thing didn't register much with me at the time. I knew there were mass arrests, but I didn't realize just what that meant.

I don't think it's possible to read this and not question the direction our nation is heading. It makes me that much more fucking sick that 2% of the electorate kept the same motherfuckers in power for 4 more years.

Impeach the fucker
Politics From that bastion of essential journalism, Salon, comes this piece on the impeachable crimes commited -- and admitted to -- by George Bush. Take the time to watch the ad to get your day pass, if you don't already have a subscription. This is required reading.

It's stunning how a president can literally flaunt the fact that he committed such crimes. It's telling how, as the story writes, Republicans are failing the test of principle by not calling for Bush's impeachment when what he has done is far more directly deserving than what Clinton did. Of course, we already know Republicans have no real principles to speak of, and it remains ridiculous that they are so embraced by supposedly principled people.

Such dearth of logic really leaves no other interpretation or conclusion than what the American left has always known: that our positions really are the ones of intelligence and integrity, while the opposition is both stupid and corrupt.

Bush's 'goddamned piece of paper'
Politics From the ever-so valuable Capitol Hill Blue comes some insider info as to Bush's true feelings about the Constitution he purports to be sworn to uphold:
“Mr. President,” one aide in the meeting said. “There is a valid case that the provisions in this law undermine the Constitution.”

“Stop throwing the Constitution in my face,” Bush screamed back. “It’s just a goddamned piece of paper!”

While Bush is obviously the hugest moron here, it's very telling that the Republican leaders he was conferencing with were concerned about "alienating conservatives" rather than the basic idea of the law being unconstitutional in the first place, proving once and for all that they only thing they want to uphold is their crooked brand of political power. Throw the bums out!

Challenging Hillary
Politics Could it be that Tasini, following Murtha's lead, will start to bring the Democratic Party back to its Progressive roots? I wouldn't hold my breath, but I'll definitely have my eye on the New York primaries in September ...

How Fox News does it
Politics In doing some readings today I stumbled across an excellent example of how Fox News insidiously tries to bias news reporting and influence discourse on topics around the world. Have a look at the first few paragraphs of this Fox News story on the burning of a woman during the France riots. Now look at the actual story, close to as moved by AP (corroborated by a Google news query).

Read on for the explicit analysis.

Paper Trails and Culture Wars
Politics The neocon Bushies have now hit us with two stealth nominees for the Supreme Court who have almost no paper trail to document their right-wing ideologies. The tactic worked for Roberts, who was confirmed with little opposition in the Senate. Meanwhile, Bush's latest stealth nominee, Harriet Miers -- while temporarily getting the Christian Right's holy panties in a bunch with doubts as to whether she is really a "true" conservative -- may actually turn out to be a nightmare for Liberals ...
