CNN reports President Bush is going on a campaign to convince people that the Libby/outing of a spy for payback/we are supposed to believe our president was too clueless to know what was going on and we do (believe he is clueless enough not to know because it's part of his charm)/Iraq war case isn't all that bad. In essence he has decided to lie about his lies. This I do not have a hard time believing.
Anyway, other Republican policies these days, if you haven't noticed, besides smearing people who tell the truth and outing spies is OK are, we lie because it's good for you. Shut up and do as you are told. You make sacrifices and we get the money. Environmental protection, worker's rights - stupid. Global warming is quack science. On energy we need to ramp up production of SUVs.
Women aren't bright enough to decide on abortion. (If you don't believe me see the makeup of the Supreme Court). Queers are bad, bad, bad. (Personally, I think gay people have just as much right to be miserable as straight married people.) Government is a subsidiary of business, that is, corporate oligarchy is good. (I have to be careful because I know if I use a word such as oligarchy it flies over the head of the beer drinkin' rednecks that helped elect Bush because he was going to fight dem (sic) Arabs.
Have a drink to this one fellas: You voted for a monarchy. Yea, you really did. In the country that was the first to tell kings and queens to stuff it.
Rigged elections - that's whacko conspiracy stuff and not worthy of an investigating while we are busy giving tax breaks to our biggest contributors and trying to get DeLay off.
More Republican policies, 9/11, 9/11, 9/11, 9/11. Which I think should be pointed out happened on their watch.
It's Clinton's fault.
It's Hollywood's fault.
Ten trillion dollar national debt - don't worry we are fixing the economy.
We need less government. Actually, you need less government. (They don't seem to mind getting their paychecks and benefits. And setting up their friends.)
It is God's will.
Don't like it? See shut up and do as you are told.
Now back to corporate media. And what Brad and Jennolina are up to.
