Stay the Course

Or else, you know, don’t. Maybe. I dunno. What do the polls say?

This is it in a microcosm. This is the problem. This is how President George W. Bush and his administration operates. They do something they shouldn’t (or don’t do something they should—hello, New Orleans! How’s it hangin’, Osama?) and then lie about it and hope folks won’t notice. If anyone does, they bully the bejeebers out of ‘em. And by now the press is too whipped to put up much of a fight.

But not the rest of Americans.

“Listen, we’ve never been ‘stay the course’.”

Of course you haven’t.

Damn you, pesky cameras!

    The New York Times gave a glowing – GLOWING -lead endorsement today to Democrat Diane Farrell in the Connecticut 5th over Congressman Christopher “Abu Ghraib Wasn’t Torture, It Was Sex” Shays. That’s a lead editorial in a paper that usually doesn’t pay CT much nevermind at all. That’s the good news.
    The better news? Farrell’s leading. That’d be a Dem pickup in a seat that’s been Republican since the 1960s. Things are happening, tides are turning, courses are no longer staying. B.E.L.I.E.V.E.
    Press on good peoples. Press until November 7th. And then vote with all you got,like you never voted before. Onward up many a frightening creek, though your arms may get tired and your sneakers may leak.
    (This is what I get for reading “Oh The Places You’ll Go” before bedtime.)
    Go. Fight. Win.

    Thanks for having this site, fella. Because I just this very second saw on TV the fat, drug-addicted, adulterous, draft-dodging Rush Limbaugh lampooning Michael J. Fox’s Parkinson’s Disease. I’d heard the controversy today, but hadn’t seen the clip of him. The clip of him MAKING FUN OF SOMEONE WITH PARKINSON’S DISEASE. For political gain. Ordinarily I’d stew about it and pound the arm of the couch. Tonight I ran down here to place this post and tell you to keep all this going.
    That’s it, right there. Rush. That’s the ugly face of it all, right there. We should thank him, really, for making it all so simple. That’s what we need to beat on November 7. And that’s what we will beat. Giddy up.

    Limbaugh has been a pig for twenty years. The real scandal is that he has ever been taken seriously by anyone, and he has, in spades. Russert, Matthews, Brokaw, the lot of them, they’ve all shamefully toadied up to the swine. Aim your vitriol at them. Limbaugh is what he is, and he should have been marginalized years ago. Some “liberal” media, huh?

    P.S. How long before the “terror alerts” hit? I give them about a week.
