Yes, she's strange and different...but not THAT different.

It just keeps getting better

Last Tuesday, the Presidunce of the United States of Walmart/Cheneyburton quietly signed an Executive Order: Blocking Property of Certain Persons Who Threaten Stabilization Efforts in Iraq. Basically, the Departments of Treasury, Defense and State can now come after you for, among other things, "undermining efforts to promote economic reconstruction and political reform in Iraq". Given this administration's record concerning declaring citizens to be "enemy combatants" without showing any proof, who wants to bet that the above phrase couldn't be applied to any citizen who publicly criticized the executive handling of the war/rebuilding/democratization in Iraq? You know, like blogging against official policy. I'm not saying that it WILL be used that way, but hey ... I'm just saying it could.

And of course, the Democratic Congress isn't going to do anything about anything until it gets the seal of approval from the presidunce office. Yesterday, Senator Russ Feingold said that he wants Congress to censure Bush for his mismanagement of the Iraq war and his assault against the Constitution. Senator Harry Reid, the Democratic leader of the Senate, said he would not go along with Feingold's censure proposals and said the Senate needs to focus on finishing spending bills on defense and homeland security. You know, the bills that Reid tabled because the White House doesn't like them. And since impeachment is just a wet dream of gay liberal progressive bloggers and Islamofacist-sympathizing pacifists that the Congress can't be bothered with discussing and there's nothing else to do, then this seems to be a good time for Congress to just take the rest of the summer off.

Ah, those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer. It just doesn't get any better than this. (Does it?)

    I just can't even get around it anymore... our system is irreparably broken and we all seem to be walking around in a stupefied haze. ICK!

    Yeah, it really doesn't get any better, does it?

    While working on abortion rights in the early 1990's, I was tailed by Louisiana state troopers for a few days. Creepy.

    I guess Georgie needs to start threatening since we are all laughing at him. If only the stakes weren't so high.

    At this point I'd be for censuring Bush, and I voted for the guy. (Trust me, I didn't like my options)
