One article I saw claims that Rove has told Bush/etc. that he is going to be indicted. But another article seems to indicate this is not definitive and that Fitzpatrick has so far only requested an indictment. So what is it? Will he be indicted or not? What I want to know is what difference does it make? Rove is at the moment only a political advisor. So unless they put him in solitary confinment what would keep him from continuing to do the same thing? This would seem to be the case whether he resigns or not. Or am I missing something important here?
The Iranian President (or whatever he is) sent a long letter to Bush suggesting they get together and talk about their differences. Bush, predictably, refused. After all, why whould you try to discuss your problems when you can just continue to threaten to bomb them if they don't do exactly what you want? This is a classic case of Bush/Cheney "diplomacy."
Condi Rice and Donald Rumstupid have refused to allow the Red Cross access to our various prisoners hidden here and there in torture chambers around the globe. Hiding prisoners from the Red Cross is a war crime. Oh well, this is the Bush/Cheney Administration. What do they care about war crimes. One more, more or less, can't make much difference.
The White House is criticizing the Chinese for their military spending. Can you believe this? An administration that is spending more on the military than all of the rest of the world combined is criticizing another country for military spending? Chutzpa doesn't even begin to describe this. Neither does arrogance and stupidity. In fact, I don't know if a term even exists to describe something so intrinsically insane.
McCain/Falwell. Hilary/Murdock. What does that tell you about the condition of American politics? Sadly, it tells me much more than I really want to know. If it comes down to a choice between Hilary and McCain you can count me out.
This brings me to Nancy Pelosi, who, if the Democrats would happen to actually win back the House, would be the majority leader. She has promised the corporations there will be no attempt to impeach Bush/Cheney. You get that: SHE HAS PROMISED NOT TO ATTEMPT TO IMPEACH BUSH/CHENEY!!! What in the hell is this all about? Even if she does become leader what gives her the right or the power to decide for all the rest of us what might happen to Bush/Cheney? Personally, I don't think they ought to be impeached either. They should be immediately arrested for war crimes, sent to the Haig, and tried by the International Court. In case you haven't noticed by now, there is something rotten in Denmark (and above all in the United States).
I have a suggestion for the elections in 2006 and 2008: VOTE ALL INCUMBENTS OUT! NO EXCEPTIONS! Our political system has become so corrupt, so overcontrolled by corporate interests, so beholden to special interests, there is simply no other alternative - unless, of course, you are partial to fascism and dictatorships.
Oh, yeah. The Israelis are going to unilaterally decide the borders of Israel and Palestine (no doubt with the collaboration and blessings of the U.S.). I bet that is going to work just fine. Just continue to keep your heads up there where the sun don't shine and all will be well.
God, it's great to be home.
