More Orwellian Doublespeak From The Bushcons

Ill: The Worried Shrimp

Defeat is Victory & Other Lurid Tales From Far Right-Land

Demon Princess gives the bastards this much: they never give up. The Supreme Court (surprisingly) hands Bush his ass in defeating his “military tribunal” scheme as violative of both our own military justice law, and *gasp* international law in the form of the Geneva Conventions, which is really a repudiation of the way the Bushcons have run this stupid stunt of a war all along.

And they’re still in denial. Plainly it was a completely unexpected defeat.

These people cannot be Americans in & of the same America in which I was raised. They must be evil pod-people ingeniously designed to look like the real thing. But they were really sent from outer space to infect & destroy the world, the sooner, the better—declaring wars of choice based on the slimmest of evidence, a lotta lies & distinct racial & religious overtones, raping, pillaging & murdering their way across the globe, leaving only death & destruction in their wake…

Oh, excuse me, I didn’t see y’all standing there. I was sharing in a Neocon flight of fancy---a vision of the Apocolypse…I hear the beat of the horsemens’ hooves fading away into the near future I am certain is upon us all…

If it will keep me in office, I’ll espouse it wholeheartedly.
“Republicans yesterday looked to wrest a political victory from a legal defeat in the Supreme Court, serving notice to Democrats that they must back President Bush on how to try suspects at Guantanamo Bay or risk being branded as weak on terrorism.

“In striking down the military commissions Bush sought for trials of suspected members of al-Qaeda and other terrorist groups, the high court Thursday invited Congress to establish new rules and put the issue prominently before the public four months before the midterm elections. As the White House and lawmakers weighed next steps, House GOP leaders signaled they are ready to use this week's turn of events as a political weapon.

“House Majority Leader John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) criticized House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's comment Thursday that the court decision ‘affirms the American ideal that all are entitled to the basic guarantees of our justice system.’ “That statement, Boehner said, amounted to Pelosi's advocating ‘special privileges for terrorists.’

“Similar views ricocheted around conservative talk radio -- Rush Limbaugh called Pelosi's comments ‘deranged’ on his show Thursday-- and Republican strategists said they believed that the decision presented Bush a chance to put Democrats on the spot while uniting a Republican coalition that lately has been splintered on immigration, spending and other issues.

"’It would be good politics to have a debate about this if Democrats are going to argue for additional rights for terrorists," said Terry Nelson, a prominent GOP political strategist who was political director for Bush's reelection campaign in 2004.

“Mindful of this thinking, Democrats were measured in their comments about how to respond to the ruling, which held that Bush's policy was not authorized by law and violated the Geneva Conventions…”

And don’t forget those weapons of mass destruction (finally) found in Iraq.

“Do the 20-year-old Iraqi chemical munitions found by U.S. and coalition forces support the prewar contention that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction, and justify the invasion of Iraq?

“That question divided Republicans and Democrats again this week, this time at a hearing of the House Armed Services Committee on the estimated 500 rockets and artillery shells containing degraded mustard gas or sarin nerve agent.

"Committee Chairman Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.) contended that an April report by the U.S. Army's National Ground Intelligence Center (NGIC) is clear evidence of Hussein's weapons of mass destruction.

"’Some may want to play down the significance of this report or even deny that WMD have been found in Iraq,’ Hunter said at Thursday's hearing, using the abbreviation for weapons of mass destruction.”

Well, if you can follow his logic *fill in the gaps yourself*: IF they were magically transported through time & space, & plunked down in the middle of a populous American city, should the citizens of that city be terrified & run fleeing for their lives?

Oh, yes, undoubtedly, sir.

You be the judge: click on the title bar to read the *liberal media* Washington Post articles.
And here:

Note to Dems of either sex: GROW SOME BALLS.

The “debate” is patently inane, & the only real “weapons”left them are some insane right-wing viagara-addicted screaming fruitbats.

Treat American voters like intelligent adults & stop letting the insane far right frame the debate! And fire your handlers. Show us all that governing a great nation is about more than soundbytes designed to play well on Fox. Get your groove back & help all of us out here who want to take the country back! We've just been waiting...& waiting.... & remember that old saw about arguing with idiots: to a third party, it's hard to tell who is & who isn't. Remember what you should have learned in the schoolyard.
