Molly Ivins Gone

Molly Ivins died today, at age 62, of breast cancer.

As you may have noted, Molly Ivins was one of my favorite people. She was a consistent voice of good-natured, persistent liberalism. She loved what she loved and hated what she hated, and was able (and willing) to laugh at both.

Growing up in Texas, as it feared from thoughtless libertarianism to soulless fascism, I found her columns, whether in the Dallas Times Herald, the Fort Worth Star Telegram (affectionately known as the Startle Gram), the Observer, or any other source, offered a voice of reason, of solace, of hope. She was never ashamed of being labeled a 'liberal'; in fact, she reveled in it.

She was a populist in the southern, open-ended sense. Willing to listen to and accept or reject any like-minded themes, always moving on in the interest of the 'people' and not the powers-that-be. Many an icon withered beneath her gaze, her scorn, her written sneer.

She was a great lady, a great hearted person, and a true giant. There will never be another like her. The left, and all of America, is diminished with her passing.

The Houston Chronicle (the Cronk) has a collection of her wit and wisdom.

Her books, Shrub and Bushwhacked, both with Lou DuBose, as stunning exposes of Dumbfuck, and if Shrub had been read by a few more people before Nov 2000, we might not be on the verge of Armageddon.

More Olbermania

Last night, KO had a great Special Comment trashing Dumbfuck's lying in the SOTU. Froomkin covers it here.

Davd Brin

Brin is one of my favorite sci-fi writers, and a brilliant scientist. His blog is often fascinating and today is no exception. He has mini-catchall post and explains why markets MUST be regulated and a concise explanation of what's wrong in Iraq. Not bad for a toss-off.

The Gifts Just Keep On Coming

Bartlett and Rove will probably have to testify in the Libby trial. Throw in Cheney, put em all under oath, and I may just swoon from multiple orgasms.

Both Rove and Bartlett have already received trial subpoenas from Libby’s defense lawyers, according to lawyers close to the case who asked not to be identified talking about sensitive matters. While that is no guarantee they will be called, the odds increased this week after Libby’s lawyer, Ted Wells, laid out a defense resting on the idea that his client, Vice President Dick Cheney’s former chief of staff, had been made a “scapegoat” to protect Rove.

What ANY of this has to do with whether the Scooter lied under oath or not, I can not imagine. Nor, really do I care. As long as the flames lick around their feet and waft gently upwards, I don't really care whether the fire was started for light or for heat.

Face Them Down

Chgo Jim at DailyKos has a great post comparing the Repugs to and abusive spouse. Standing up to them is the only answer.

It won't stop. Because they can't stop. You don't try to compromise and reason with irredeemable assholes. You stand up to them. Let them expose themselves for what they are. Let McConnell filibuster the anti-surge resolution. Let him tell the American people to go to hell. Don't give any tax breaks tied to the minimum wage - let them tell people they just don't give a shit about the poor.

Finally, like that poor deluded spouse that eventually has enough, the American people will come to their senses, the people will have had enough.


If you're in or near the DC area, get out tomorrow and march. If I'd heard about this sooner, I'd have tried to get over there myself.

Hope this gets more coverage in the execution than the planning; I only heard any mention of it today.

Wednesday, January 24, 2007


I don't know if everyone focused on it (I watched ABC, and didnt switch around, so I dont know if it was pool video or just ABC), but it seemed last night like the focus of coverage in the audience was to find the most comatose member. Kennedy looked dead, til he moved his eyes then checked or made some notes, McCain appeared comatose, Liebermann looked sound asleep at one point, and on and on.

The one unsleepy member member was Sen. Grassley who, in response to the demand for more corn than we grow to use for biofuel, looked like he'd won the lottery with a bottle rocket up his ass. Could a grown man, supposedly a serious, nay ponderous, one have looked ANY goofier?


My boy, John Edwards, shit the bed!

Let's hope this isn't a fatal flaw, I don't have a backup candidate at this point.

Titanic Time?

Andrew Sullivan has the best line about Fitzgerald's assault on Cheney on his opening statements:

This may be the moment in the Bush administration when the huge liner splits in two, points upward and goes under for good.


Dan Froomkin has (as usual) a great round up of coverage of the SOTU and some biting commentary on the Libby trial.

On Libby:

How that scapegoating might mitigate Libby's alleged crime of perjuring himself to investigators isn't exactly clear -- but it sure gives us a rare and troubling view of the viper pit that apparently lurks beneath the West Wing's placid veneer.

Was Libby a scapegoat or a liar? Was he a victim of White House backstabbing, or a puppet in Cheney's obsessive war against those who dared question the highly questionable case for war in Iraq? Neither would reflect well on the White House. And they're not mutually exclusive.

If nothing else, the Libby defense hints at an answer to what I have long considered one of the great mysteries of this administration: How do Bush's two Svengalis -- Cheney and Rove -- get along? Apparently, not so great.

On the SOTU:

Dan Balz writes in The Washington Post: "President Bush used his State of the Union address last night to try to revive his presidency against what may be the greatest odds any chief executive has faced in a generation."

But, Balz concludes: "Bush may have been speaking into the void."


Marc Sandalow writes in the San Francisco Chronicle: "President Bush acknowledged the change in political order in the opening minute of his State of the Union address Tuesday with a gracious tribute to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, seated on the podium behind him.

"He then spent most of the next 49 minutes behaving as if the November election never happened.

"Bush pitched a health care policy he knows stands no chance in a Democratic Congress, an education plan Democrats have already rejected and an energy policy that did little to wow his opponents.

"On Iraq, Bush implored a Congress that is poised to pass a resolution condemning his latest war plan to 'find our resolve, and turn events toward victory.'"


Glenn Kessler does some fact-checking for The Washington Post: "In his State of the Union address last night, President Bush presented an arguably misleading and often flawed description of 'the enemy' that the United States faces overseas, lumping together disparate groups with opposing ideologies to suggest that they have a single-minded focus in attacking the United States.

"Under Bush's rubric, a country such as Iran -- which enjoys diplomatic representation and billions of dollars in trade with major European countries -- is lumped together with al-Qaeda, the terrorist group responsible for the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. 'The Shia and Sunni extremists are different faces of the same totalitarian threat,' Bush said, referring to the different branches of the Muslim religion. . . .

"[H]is description of the actions of 'the enemy' tried to tie together a series of diplomatic and military setbacks that had virtually no connection to one another, from an attack on a Sunni mosque in Iraq to the assassination of Maronite Lebanese political figure."

Kessler questions Bush's insistence that "free people are not drawn to violent and malignant ideologies" and that "we have a diplomatic strategy that is rallying the world to join in the fight against extremism."

He also finds room for a little domestic fact-checking as well. For instance: "Bush claimed credit for cutting the budget deficit ahead of schedule and proposed to eliminate it over the next five years. He did not mention that he inherited a huge budget surplus -- $236 billion in 2000 -- compared with a $296 billion deficit in the 2006 fiscal year, largely as a result of Bush's tax cuts and spending increases."


Steven Thomma writes for McClatchy Newspapers: "Bush wanted to convince Americans watching on television that he's heard them and that he wants again to work with Democrats....

"Yet the chasm between the parties is wide and deep, the politics between them are poisonous and Bush bears much of the blame.

"After reaching out to Democrats his first year, Bush governed after the 2001 terrorist attacks as the leader of a one-party state.

"In Congress, his party locked Democrats out of negotiations, then hammered votes through without chance of input.

"From the White House, Bush tacked 'signing statements' onto bills he signed and used the threat of terrorism in three successive elections to attack Democrats as weak or, worse, aiding the enemy. Last fall he warned that if the Democrats won control of Congress, 'terrorists win and America loses.'"

On Webb's (brilliant) response:

Here's the text of Webb's address.

Jonathan Alter blogs for MSNBC: "Something unprecedented happened tonight, beyond the doorkeeper announcing, 'Madame Speaker.' For the first time ever, the response to the State of the Union overshadowed the president's big speech. Virginia Sen. James Webb, in office only three weeks, managed to convey a muscular liberalism-with personal touches-that left President Bush's ordinary address in the dust."

No War on Terror?

From Britain's top cop:

The director of public prosecutions, Ken Macdonald, warned Wednesday of a "fear-driven and inappropriate response" to the new threat that could lead to the abandonment of respect for fair trials and due legal process.

In a speech to the Criminal Bar Association, reported by the Guardian newspaper, Macdonald rejected the assertion that a "war on terror" was being played out in Britain.

"On the streets of London, there is no such thing as a 'war on terror', just as there can be no such thing as a 'war on drugs', said Macdonald, who heads the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS).

"The fight against terrorism on the streets of Britain is not a war. It is the prevention of crime, the enforcement of our laws and the winning of justice for those damaged by the infringement."

Amen! Couldn'ta said it better.....

(h/t to Americablog and Chris in Paris)

Greenwald: Liebermann = McCarthy

Joe Liebermann long ago renounced any pretensions to humanity, intelligence, and decency. Apparently, his little transaction yesterday with Gen. Petraeus pushed Glenn over the edge:

To Joe Lieberman, anyone who opposes whatever Iraq plan he happens to be currently favoring is a frivolous, defeat-hungry traitor -- giving "some comfort" to the "enemy." He's really the Senate's modern-day Joe McCarthy, smearing everyone's character and impugning everyone's motives who doesn't march faithfully along behind the President. What makes it all the more deceitful is that he never ceases to piously masquerade around as the Beacon of Civility and Honor, a disguise long propped up by an adoring Beltway media. But now, Lieberman's behavior has become so toxic and ignoble that even decorous, restrained Senate Republicans -- no strangers to the art of the political smear -- have begun condemning him in unusually strong terms. What is more pernicious than for a politician, in a Senate hearing with the country's new top General in Iraq, to expressly equate disagreement with their war views with treason? Not much.

Healthcare Roundup

Bush's announced plan last night is DOA, so a lot of this is moot, but it truly was the wrong step in the the wrong direction at the wrong time, to paraphrase Sen. Kerry. Moving from group based plans to individual based plans helps no one except the very young and very healthy (and only WHILE they are very young and very healthy) and hurts everyone in the long run.

Kevin Drum, at Political Animal, who's been banging this drum for a long time, weighs in.

Foreign Policy Nightmare

There's much discussion about the horrid state of foreign policy under Bu$hCo, and the awful design and execution thereof by them, and how the world views us and how difficult it is to move our foreign policy initiatives forward. I was discussing Ahmedinajad with the bf and said something that struck me as dead on as to why we have these FP problems.

The rest of world sees Bush in the same light WE see Ahmedinajad. Loud, obnoxious, and crazy.


Dan Froomkin sums it up pretty well:

President Bush tonight will try to change the subject -- and will fail.

Get Two More Chairs, Mary Margaret.....

Hillary and Bill Richardson have announced their candidacies (candidacix?)

Maybe the most interesting thing so far is that Hillary announced on her website, on a weekend. Talk about sang-froid! I'm still behind Edwards, but I can live with any of these guys as candidate/President, altho I do buy into the argumnet that, even tho Hillary can probably win, she would hurt the Dems down-ticket, where most of the others wouldn't. But we'll see.

No Matter How Cynical You Get......

Yesterday, I accused 'Berto of going over the edge. Today, he's trying to hit bottom, but I don't think there's anything low enough for him to call the bottom.

Say Your Prayers

In what is, I'm almost certain, on the signs of the endtimes, we had snow today, as low as Malibu!!

And on my birthday, I don't know what that means.....

Holy Shit!

'Berto done gone over da edge!

Attorney General Alberto Gonzales says federal judges are unqualified to make rulings affecting national security policy, ramping up his criticism of how they handle terrorism cases. In remarks prepared for delivery Wednesday, Gonzales says judges generally should defer to the will of the president and Congress when deciding national security cases. He also raps jurists who "apply an activist philosophy that stretches the law to suit policy preferences."

UPDATE: dkos has commentary here and here

Bad News for the Blogosphere

Jane Hamsher, of Firedoglake, is suffering a recurrence of cancer (apparently her third go-round). FDL is one of my favorite sites, and Jane is a force in the blogosphere. Send her some love and keep her in your thoughts/prayers.

Un Huh, I'm Buying It, 'Berto......

Finally, after much diligent study and hard, hard thought (thinkin' is hard if you're a born Decider!), Bu$hCo has (apparently) come up with wholesome, friendly, child-safe version of warrantless wiretapping that involves, MIRABILE DICTU!, warrants!

Kevin has the best take on it. The money shot:

Of course, if Gonzales is telling the truth, that's even worse for Bush because it's a clear sign that the previous program was patently illegal. In fact, so illegal that it took two solid years to finally develop an alternative that a judge deemed acceptable. If the program merely needed a few tweaks here and there, it would have taken a month for a judge to approve it, not two years.

Bush Nailed

dKos has coverage on a great McClatchy article on the lies surrounding Iraq, Iran, et all. They nail, Bush, Rice, the whole lying bunch of them. Great read, both the dKos coverage and the article.

Too Little, Too Late

Dumbfuck et al are apparently appointing some realists to exec positions in Iraq. But even, the realists think it's probably too little, too late, and too damned bad.

Interlocking Webs of Repugnacity

As noted below, there's an effort to punish the lawyers doing pro bono work for the Gitmo detainees by 'boycotting' the law firms. Turns out, Scooter Libby's law firm is one of them. Guess Scooter will have to go back to square one. :)

I'm SOOOO Depressed

These guys are SO not the best and brightest, it gives me the heebee-jeebees.

Donald Rumsfeld, the then defence secretary, was unimpressed, but Kagan’s views got another hearing when Bush was searching for ways to ditch the seemingly defeatist recommendations of James Baker’s Iraq Study Group. “Wow, you mean we can still win this war?” a grateful Bush reportedly said.

For a little background on Kagan's supposed 'expertise', check out this other post at TPM.

MIchael Ledeen Is Dead

Oh horrors, who will lead the heroic charge into the next unnecessary, army-ravaging, national-soul-destroying war of convenience? Oh shit!?!? You mean it's satire? Fuck, that ruins my whole day!

Sanity At Last?

Let me say up front, I don't use any drugs except nicotine and alcohol (caffeine is NOT a drug, it's my FRIEND!!!!) but I have long been viscerally opposed to the 'War on Drugs'. IMHO, half or more of the social problems we have in this country can be traced directly to this misguided legal abortion. If we legalized everything and taxed it, we solve most of those problems. The whole drugs/crime matrix is a death-spiral as we make drugs more illegal and expensive, it costs more to acquire the drugs and increases the desperation of the acquiree, leading to more crime (I won't even get into the gangs/money/drugs aspect of it.) And the oppressive (and racially/culturally biased) minimum mandatory sentencing laws just make the problem worse.

But it appears that hope may be at hand, at least on the mandatory sentencing part. Baby steps, but steps nonetheless. Any progress is progress.

I Don't Know If This Is Sad or Funny, But It IS Indicitave

In a move that just reeks of political integrity, Walter ('Freedom Fries') Jones (R-NC) has been passed over for a senior minority position on a defense subcommittee. Apparently, as punishment for his (much earlier than I thought) opposition to the debacle in Iraq.

I don't much care for Jones, but his opposition has been longstanding and earnest. Duncan Hunter is an ass, but you'd think some of the Repugs might have noted that opposition to the war is sorta kinda not a bad thing, even with Repug voters. But they are obtuse, disconnected from reality, and mortally stupid and venal.

Have a french fry in Jones honor.

Why Waste Time Shooting The Messenger? Just Shoot His Lawyer

This story sort of popped up yesterday. Apparently, the RW Wurlitzer and the Defense Dept have decided to get the Gitmo detainees convicted by screwing their attorneys (screwing the detainees wasn't enough?). TPM weighs in, as do Drum and dKos.

There's so much wrong with this group of crooks in Bu$hCo, but this sort of sums up the total contempt for law, order, due process, civil rights, ad infinitum, that these guys think is what America should be. NEVER vote for a Repug again, if this is what we get. At this point, if you had a child molesting bank robber running against a Repug, I'd probably vote for the molestor, but then, given recent history, he'd be a Repug, wouldn't he?

More Froomkin

Froomkin hits on a couple of things in today's posting.

On Dumbfuck's speech in GA:

It was a bold attempt by Bush to rebut the widely-reported story that he stopped listening to his commanders -- and in fact, reassigned some -- when they stopped telling him what he wanted to hear.

But Bush's new story lacks a certain important quality: Believability.

Previous reporting -- see, for instance, Michael Abramowitz, Robin Wright and Thomas E. Ricks in The Washington Post on Wednesday -- has made it abundantly clear that adding U.S. troops was not an idea that emerged from the American commanders -- nor, for that matter, from the Iraqis.

He quotes Brzenski on the Way Forward:

Carter administration national security adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski outlines five flaws in Bush's plan, in a Washington Post op-ed. Among them:

"The decision to escalate the level of the U.S. military involvement while imposing 'benchmarks' on the 'sovereign' Iraqi regime, and to emphasize the external threat posed by Syria and Iran, leaves the administration with two options once it becomes clear -- as it almost certainly will -- that the benchmarks are not being met. One option is to adopt the policy of 'blame and run': i.e., to withdraw because the Iraqi government failed to deliver. That would not provide a remedy for the dubious 'falling dominoes' scenario, which the president so often has outlined as the inevitable, horrific consequence of U.S. withdrawal. The other alternative, perhaps already lurking in the back of Bush's mind, is to widen the conflict by taking military action against Syria or Iran. It is a safe bet that some of the neocons around the president and outside the White House will be pushing for that. Others, such as Sen. Joseph Lieberman, may also favor it."

His colum/blog/whatever is always worth reading.

'Runaway, Duplicitous President'

I don't much like Andrew Sullivan, but he's right on here.

Are We At War (Secret) With Iran?

US troops attacked and ransacked an Iranian consulate in Irbil (Arbil?) today. Computers and documents were seized. Various bloggers (and here and here) are discussing a possible secret Presidential order to strike at Iranian and Syrian 'assets' in Iraq. This could get UGLY fast.

Wednesday, January 10, 2007

Lying Finally Making Him Ill-at-Ease?

Watching the speech earlier, I thought Bush looked ill at ease and slightly out of it, like Dr. Dick had fucked up his tranks. Apparently, Howard Fineman thought so, too.

Shrub, Iraq, and Gambling Theory

Brilliant analysis by litigatormom at dKos as to why Dumbfuck can't, or won't, cut his losses in Iraq.


I'm reading a lot of the blogging about the speech and everyone seems to think the target is al-Sadr (see the Larry Johnson piece noted below). I am, by nature, paranoid and conspiracy-spotting, and a thought struck me.

What if Maliki is in bed with Sadr (highly possible, if not probable, given the nature of Maliki's political connections). What if the push against Sadr, with Iraqi support, is a setup? What if we go in with Iraqi 'allies' to Sadr City, and the allies evaporate, or turn up, confused, at the wrong place at the wrong time? A lot of our boys could end up massacred.

Just my inner demons exercising themselves (exorcising them failed years ago). Noah Schachtman (h/t to Kevin Drum) thinks exactly the opposite, so.... take it all with a grain of salt till something happens.


The ever-brilliant Larry Johnson explains what's wrong (okay, okay, what's MOST wrong) with Dumbfuck's 'new' strategery.

At the very moment that Bush wants to isolate Iran we are taking steps to strengthen the very elements in Iraq most closely aligned with Iran. At the same time we are stepping up our efforts to destroy the Iraqi elements least sympathetic to Iran. What is Bush trying to do?

Maybe I'm Not Alone in My Cynicism.....

Froomkin on the planning for the plan:

So how did it come to pass? Well, during White House deliberations, "How to look distinctive from the study group [the ISG] became a recurring theme.


One of the blogs (and I apologize to them for forgetting which) the other day was expounding on the War and begging someone to tell them one thing, just one thing, that Bu$hCo and Dumbfuck had gotten right on the war.

I started thinking about that. Can anyone name one thing, just ONE thing, in any endeavor that they have gotten right. Supreme Court nominess? Pretty Awful. SCOTUS nominee handling? VERY amateur. Environment? Katrina? Subordinate nominess? ANYTHING? ANYFUCKINGTHING?

Antibipartisanship Redux

Today's portion of the hundred hours is supposed to be devoted to the minimum wage increase (altho you'd be hard pressed to tell with the press sticking like leeches to the Admin preparing to perform escalatio.....*) There's a lot of talk about how hard it's going to be to get it through the Senate without making concessions.


Send it to the Senate. Amendment and compromise free. Make the Repugs tell their constituents that they are opposed to them getting a living wage. Make them pay for their ideological purity. Make them bleed. And GET THEM ON THE RECORD! It's not as much about getting the minimum wage through (Dumbfuck is not going to sign it unadorned) NOW, as it is setting the groundwork for being able to do this, and so much more, post '08, with Dems in the House, Senate, and White House.


Per dKos, it appears Pelosi is proposing to do just that. So the struggle is in the Senate alone. Contact your Senator and tell him/her to put this to a straight up/down minimum-wage-only vote.

UPDATE: The bill passed out of the House with a veto-proof majority. Apparently, every Dem voted for it, as well as about 65-70 Repugs.

Lilly Tomlin Was Right

ABC is reporting that advance troops of the 82nd Airborne are already in Iraq as part of the escalation to be announced tonight. Got bipartisanship?

WTF does this have to do with Lily Tomlin? She uttered one of my favortie quotes, tres apropos of Bu$hCo:

No matter how cynical you get, it is impossible to keep up.

13 Reasons NOT To Vote for McCain


How to Win If Losing

It occured to me while reading some commentary on the War that, even if the Dems can't get bills they want through the Senate (the filibuster is a bitch- why didnt we use it more?), they can make the Repugs pay, and pay heavily, for opposing them.

The current thinking is that they should water things down to the point that they can suck some of the moderate (or just frightened) Repugs over to their side. WRONG! Write the bills as they should be written, go for the goals you want, negotiate in good faith, but don't give in on basic principles. Then send the bills on for action. The enabler wing of the Repugs will go ballistic, oppose everything, and attempt to filibuster.


In the long run, with the country overal 2-1 on our side on the war, and well over 50-50 on our side on virtually everything else, letting the bad guys get up and play obstructionist, will make them look stupid, out of touch, and all the things they really are. Let this build as needed over the next two years, and then deal with the problems, in 2009, with a majority in both houses AND a Dem Prez. Other than the war, everything can wait, and regardless of what the Congress does or does not do (short of impeachment), Dumbfuck is going stay the Decider and do whatever the hell he wants anyway.

And, if you favor impeachment, the more angry the populace becomes at the antics, the more time we give him, the more likely Shrub is to do something so heroically awful that impeachment is, to coin a phrase, a slam dunk.

It's Official

The Senate has been sworn in and the House is about to vote for Speaker. We did it! We wrested control of the government from the most corrupt, most venal, most obnoxious, most self-righteous group of evil bastards that have controlled Congress in my lifetime, and perhaps, forever.

Told Ya So

From the Houston Chronicle:

Electronic voting machines meant to streamline the Election Day process have resulted in late poll openings, data-retrieval errors and widespread machine failures, according to a new report about last year's midterm election.


"The evidence presented indicates that electronic voting in its current form is systematically flawed and will require significant corrective measures to remedy the problems that have been exposed," concludes the 23-page report issued by Voter Action, VotersUnite.Org and VoteTrustUSA.
