Secretary of State and the rest of the Bush gang shamefully desperate

From Olbermann's "have you no sense of decency, Mr. President" echo of Murrow(directed at Sen. Joe McCarthy, typical Republican demagogue) concerning Rumsfeld and others' attempted linkage of tolerance of Hitler and the Holocaust to the tough questions posed by the media concerning the disastrous decision to invade Iraq and the much more disastrous prosecution(bungling "prosecution" is a better description) of the war and refusal to employ any sort of true diplomacy, it is obvious the boat is sinking for Bush. Condi Rice has just lost her friggin' mind, lately(as if she hadn't already---she doesn't care; she has an oiltanker named in her honor).

Rice stated:

"people who thought it was a mistake to fight the Civil War (in this country) to its end and to insist that the emancipation of slaves would hold."

"I'm sure that there were people who said, "why don't we get out of this now, take a peace with the South, but leave the South with slaves."
"Just because things are difficult, it doesn't mean that they are wrong or that you turn back," Rice told the magazine(Essence), which has a large audience among African-Americans."

Geez, Keith, these people INDEED have no sense of decency. Particularly since the Democratic Party's championing of civil rights for black Americans in 1964 and 1965 legislation pushed by LBJ with the lament that the party might suffer ill effects for their bravery and compassion for a generation is responsible for Condi's rise to power. Well, actually TWO generations so far. Most of the old segregationists in the South have been voting for the GOP since that time and won't likely return until the economic calamity which seems imminent draws them back(if it's not too late at that time). If it hadn't been for the courage of LBJ to enrage white southern Democratic voters, Condi'd still be in Alabama teaching in a segregated school because educated black folks wouldn't have been invited to join a presidential cabinet as Secretary of State.

Condi is an absolute drone. I read a letter to the editor a few weeks back in the Morning News or NW AR Times (can't remember which) where some moron was proclaiming Condi as the rightful heir of the Bush presidency. What kind of "jesus juice" is that woman drinking (thanks to the ever quotable Huck for that term)? Oy vey!

Hello,



My name is Elliott Fullmer and I am with the Sunlight Foundation, a Washington-based non-profit organization which advocates greater transparency in government. We believe that one way of achieving better responsiveness is through fostering citizen journalism. Therefore, in collaboration with the Center for Media and Democracy, we recently launched Congresspedia, a wiki-encyclopedia devoted entirely to covering Congress. The site receives 50,000 hits per day, and includes a page on each member of Congress (which can be edited by any citizen who registers and provides a source for their information).



For each member of Congress, we are currently inserting links to local blogs which cover that particular member. Through web directories, we have come across your blog. We would like to include a link to your blog (free advertising) on the page of each member that you have (or potentially could) cover on your site. If you could let us know which members (if any) you cover, we will insert a link to your blog on those pages in the very near future. Thank you and please contact me with any questions.
