George of the Bungle

Hot_link_6 An incredible Bill Maher’s rant suggesting that instead of impeaching Bush, we should do a "California-style" recall. The last 4 minutes of this speech (Starting at 4:25) are destined to be replayed in Universities of the future again & again: “…Seriously Mister President. This job can’t be fun for you anymore. There is no more money to spend, you used up all of that. You can’t start another war, because you’ve also used up the army… Now it’s time to do what you’ve always done best. Lose interest and walk away… Time to move on…”

(It's as if this monologe was written by Sir George Carlin himself...)

Democratic disaster

Nasty_corrupt_2Reality talk with Robert Novak:

"...For the Democratic Party, the devastation of Tuesday's returns cannot be minimized. The transformation of the "Solid South" from Democrat to Republican was completed. Not only were all 11 states of the old Confederacy carried by Bush, but the pickup of all five Senate seats left vacant by retiring Democrats means 18 of the region's 22 senators are Republican. Domination of Congress by the GOP now enters its second decade with Democrats largely restricted to enclaves on both coasts and some Midwestern industrial areas.

Democrats confront a grim future. Bush's 3.5-million-vote edge in the popular vote reflects a party out of touch with the country on social issues, the role of government and the war against terrorism. Democrats face the bitter reality of minority party status and what to do about it...

The electorate is simply too conservative for the Democrats, as shown by the defeat of Daschle in South Dakota. The formula of taking the straight liberal line in Washington and talking conservative at home does not work...

In the wake of Kerry's unimpressive candidacy, Democrats ponder the alternative of Howard Dean's radicalism that is even further removed from the political mainstream. The more attractive course would be a return to the artful Southerner model of Jimmy Carter or Bill Clinton -- conservative in style, liberal in substance. But with the Republican sweep in Dixie, there are no such Democrats to choose from -- certainly not Sen. John Edwards, who as vice-presidential candidate exerted no impact in his own state of North Carolina. Sen. Hillary Clinton as the presidential nominee in 2008 would only compound the party's dilemma.

It is Republicans who would be facing internal carnage had Bush been defeated. Karl Rove would have been blamed for catering to the religious right, and the battle to moderate the party would be joined. Instead, the anti-abortion, anti-gay marriage, socially conservative agenda is ascendant, and the GOP will not abandon it any time soon."

To Vote or Not to Vote

Muskegon_1 Most Americans who are eligible to vote, don’t:

The following "Washington Post" story profiles Ted Prus, 37, a construction worker from Muskegon, Michigan, his girlfriend, Kim, and their 6-year-old son, Slate. "Slate got his name because it's unconventional and Ted wants his boy to be his own man, and because it's a construction material Ted respects for its hardness, and Ted wants his boy to grow up strong"... This is no Michael Moore’s story, rather it is touching and insightful. You met him many times before. He is you.

..."Many weeks, Ted pulls in less than $500, and Kim -- who used to manage a video store -- hasn't worked steadily since Slate was born. During times when construction work is light, they sometimes subsist on what Ted brings home from fishing and hunting and scavenging for wild mushrooms. The fungal forays are often done with Slate in tow because, being low to the ground, he's a better morel hunter.

It's a rule of thumb that mushrooms with insects crawling on them are the safe ones to eat. In Ted's world, that's just one of those homely facts of life you accept and live with, if you're a survivor. Another is that life isn't always fair"...

Final though: Michael Moore’s Last message
