As the World Turns

What a great week. Dennis Kucinich introduced a bill of impeachment against the pretender in the White House and the Supreme Court recognized the strength of the U.S. Constitution (even if Scalia and the Chief Justice are embarrassments on the point.) One of my personal heroes, Vincent Bugliosi, has a new book out called The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder (of the more than 4000 U.S. troops who have died in Iraq.) Keith Olbermann called John McCain out for his callous disregard of the plight of our troops while the rest of the media lets it slip on by.

On the other hand, John McCain said he'd have Dick Cheney among his advisors when he gets to the White House. That's enough reason to vote against him, if there weren't plenty of others. Calling his own wife as Anglo-Saxon expletive and divorcing his crippled first wife are two more (although Republicans seem to have a pattern of divorcing spouses with health problems--can you spell Newt Gingrich?)

And Big Brown's trainer is calling pilot error the reason for the horse's poor showing at the Belmont. Ain't that just to be expected.

First of all there was no pilot error in Big Brown's race.The trainer should thank that jockey for maybe saving the horse for future breedings etc.. It was more like trainer/owner error. Sleaze bags.
Secondly, WHAT Cheney as an adviser in the White House, has this guy finally lost it? Cheney should be standing in front of the outrageous prices at the gas pumps, holding up a sign that says "Mission Accomplished"! I heard what he called his wife, but like you said Republicans can get away with anything and still get elected.Don't get me started on the troops either, I better stop now.

I love your outrage, Arlene. Sounds like me in front of the TV most nights.
