Oh, yes, there will be blood...
You have no idea. For an echo in history, read "Citizens", about the French Revolution. This is going to be far more awful before it's over.

The only thing that worries me is how far the neo-cons will go to distract the country now that people are starting to notice the naked emperor.
Flush them all, every single one of them! But keep a plunger handy, these turds are gonna do their best to clog the pipes before they are finally washed into the septic tank.
(Okay, it's a gross metaphor, but tell me it doesn't fit! *L*)

I remember when Arianna was a Repugnantcan hypocrite, losing argument after argument with Al Franken in the Politically Incorrect show days....he used to describe her as "the beautiful - but evil - Arianna"
But now? How much more beautiful is she (or any person for that matter) who can reject dogmatic bullshit in the face of undeniable common sense, reason and truth?
She sure looks wonderful here....how lucky you are, rubbing elbows with such a woman!!!

To everyone at the party. Keep up the good work, we may suffer a setback:
"Eager for a public success, the Bush Administration has strong-armed lawmakers into re-drafting a final Patriot Act bill that actually makes the original law even worse. The new proposals reverse months of bipartisan negotiations and ignore the growing calls for reform from across the political spectrum.
A final vote is expected in the House and Senate THIS WEEK, so we need you to call your Members of Congress as soon as you can. Take action now and and tell them to vote NO on the Patriot Act reauthorization bill."

Good point, B.M.I.I. Arianna is a true liberal, i.e., a person capable of changing her mind without losing self-esteem. She's a person who knows that being wrong isn't a sign of character weakness, simply a reason to change one's ideas.
I suspect that's W.'s problem. He knows deep down that he has cereal for brains. Admitting he's wrong reinforces his self-doubt and reminds him that the Bush family always thought Jeb was the smart one.
So W. won't admit he's wrong, not ever, even if it means we're in Iraq permanently. That's also why he surrounds himself with toadies; it puts him on a safe intellectual plane, because everyone is thinking the same thing at the same time. He calls it "loyalty." It's really sycophancy.

Bush's personality is stereotypical "dry drunk" behavior - meaning that although he's not drinking anymore (yeah, I know, but let's say he's really not), he still has a cloudiness of thought that goes along with the syndrome - and his thoughts and actions go to extremes.
According to psychologists, "Dry drunk" traits consist of:
Exaggerated self-importance and pomposity
A rigid, judgmental outlook
The most telling trait is the fact that once he decides "the sky is red", there is no amount of scientific facts or proof to the contrary that will convince him that the sky is really blue. His entire self image is wrapped up in the illusion he has created, and as a matter of self-preservation, he simply can NOT be wrong.
It's really sad, because friends and family who don't want to face the anger of the recovering alcoholic will often play along, keeping the truth from him because they know the affect it will have on him.

Thanks, Connie. That would explain the conversation he had with Cheney recently. I have it on very good authority it went like this:
Cheney: Hi, boss.
W.: Bad week, eh? Libby indicted, poll ratings in the 30s, Harriet Miers, Democrats saying we lied about Iraq.
Cheney: Yeah. Pretty bad.
W.: But there was good news.
Cheney: Yeah, what?
W.: I just saved a bundle on car insurance by switching to Geico.

What a great picture --- Brad you look great! And Arianna becomes more beautiful each year that she becomes more liberal. Yes Bush is a dry drunk, the emperor has no clothes and we all see him clearly --- and yes Robert --- you are sooo right: having humility, the ability to admit you're wrong, to change your mind and reflect deeply are all signs of strength. Bush is too invested in covering up his shaky ego.
But if something happens to Bush, at least we have Cheney!!

The passing of the Patriot Act v2 will be the death knell of our democracy and the republic. It won't matter how unpopular the president is or the war is. It won't matter one bit at all. All the control will lie with the government and presidency. So go ahead and celebrate while the your freedoms are swept away. Personally, I just feel sick to my stomach....

Dr RW re: #14 - Maybe this will make you feel a little bit better:
Patriot Act Update
Yeah, it's just a temporary victory, but hey, one step at a time.
We are sooo much further than we were a year ago - in fact, WE are in the MAJORITY!!!

I was overzealous in my comment, and ended it too soon, so the 'AHA' seemed to be out there all by itsself. Brad, John and Arianna just look simply fabulous!
Distractions abound today! Lou Dobbs really embarrassed W's little spokesdummy when she spewed out her spiel. She could hardly put her words together afterwards. A senior moment does not permit me to remember her name at this instant, however, ... His poll results 87% voted to say that the US should withdraw the troops within 6 months.)
The actions of the Congress today were, shall we say, of great emotional display! understatement!)

Issues creating problems for the G.O.P. in 2006, in one person's view of their order of importance (not necessarily the mainstream media's view):
1) War in Iraq/Fixing of Intelligence/Lies
2) Election Fraud Suspicions/Voting Machines
3) Scandals (Torture of Detainees, Plamegate, Abramoff/DeLay/Ney, Halliburton/Iraq, Ohio Coingate, Weldon-9/11)
4) Federal Deficit/Trade Deficit
5) Global Warming/Weather/Hurricanes-Tornadoes
6) Loss of Jobs to Globalization
7) Cronyism in White House
8) Supreme Court/Roe v. Wade Precedent
The mainstream media pay zero attention to #2, too little attention to #3 and #4, cover #5 only during actual hurricanes and tornadoes (as drama),
pay inconsistent attention to #6, treat #7 as business as usual, and (in one man's opinion) way too much attention to #8. Because they were so wrong about #1, and are embarrassed about it, they now cover Iraq and the attendant politics without fear of offending Bush. Thank God for that, anyway.
