Republican desperation

“It is absolutely essential that eight weeks from today, on Nov. 2, we make the right choice, because if we make the wrong choice then the danger is that we’ll get hit again and will be hit in a way that will be devastating from the standpoint of the United States.”

Only Dick (the Slimy) Cheney could make such a statement, a statement that is at once: juvenile, stupid, dishonest, irresponsible, unethical, inappropriate, uncalled for, below-the-belt, and utterly preposterous. No doubt the 350 people who were stupid enough to attend his talk in the first place will believe it.

The fact that he would make such a childish comment is further proof of just how desperate the Republicans are. As they have absolutely no positive achievements to run on they have no choice but to simply disparage their opponents and sow fear into the minds of what appears to be an increasingly gullible public.

Related to this desperation is the LA Times poll that claimed Bush ahead by 11%, a claim that lasted less that a day, and a claim that was patently absurd on the face of it. But of course we know by now not to expect any honest statement from either Republicans or their handmaidens in the mainstream media. They are desperate indeed.

Now there are claims that George W. Bush snorted cocaine while at Camp David when his father was President. And further claims that seem to be closer to proving that he was, in fact, AWOL while in the Guard.

Then there are indications that the U.S. has been acting more in Israel’s interest than heretofore believed. The so-called democratic election in Iraq is not going to allow certain parts of the country to vote because they are not under sufficient control. Some way to conduct an election. I’m sure the citizens who will be left out will be entirely satisfied with the results.

Finally for today, as I’m sure you all know by now, the death toll of U.S. troops now exceeds one thousand. All for a “war” THAT WAS TOTALLY UNNECESSARY!!!

We absolutely must be rid of these evil incompetent clowns and the sooner the better.
