Who'd have guessed Bush would be confronted with all these diffcult decisions? 

I have followed my conscience and done what I thought was right. You may not agree with some of the tough decisions I have made. But I hope you can agree that I was willing to make the tough decisions.

Bush and Cheney are on a whirlwind media blitz to frame their disastrous polices of choice as either/or decisions,

Who would have known when Bush/Cheney entered office in 2000 that they'd be confronted with the choice of fabricating a case for invading Iraq or not?

GOP embraces socialism in a big, big way 

According to my math, the FED just spent about $5000 per taxpayer on a gambit to save our asses in exchange for 80% of a company whose worth nobody knows. If you pray, pray now that this is the first crisis Bush/Cheney, Inc. gets right for the whole country. That said, the damage done may be beyond divine intervention.

I don't want my promised tally to be a running tally, so I'm indefinitely postponing it as events unfold.


[AIG's] management will be replaced, though Fed staffers did not name the new executives.

Who has Sarah Palin's number?!?!?!?!

Chickens coming home to roost in a big way 

We want -- we want money being spent to help people buy homes. That's what we want ... Or if you're a consumer, maybe thinking about buying a house, if you look on your TV screens that say "March to War", you're not so sure you want to buy the house then, because you're not sure what the consequences of marching to war will be. Now we're marching to peace. We're marching to peace and the world is better off. We've overcome that obstacle ... Our nation's 68 percent home-ownership rate is the highest ever. More people own homes now than ever before in the country's history, and that's exciting for the future of America ... I set a good goal, which is adding 5.5 million new minority homeowners in America by the end of the decade.

The Federal Reserve peeled out $300 Billion to bolster financial markets in the days after the 9/11 attacks. Maybe tomorrow I'll make a gruesome tally of what's been doled out since March in the last-second veer to avoid the impact of the GOP's attack on our economy under the flag of supply-side laissez-fair economics.

Here's an article mentioning the "d" word.

The Republican wrecking crew 

From the Strib,

Vandals broke three plate-glass windows and a glass door early Sunday at presidential candidate Barack Obama's state headquarters in St. Paul.

Here is what someone thought of my Obama bumper sticker (purchased at said Obama headquarters) that I displayed at a golf resort in Wisconsin a few weekends ago.

UPDATE: A billboard outside of the MSP airport welcoming the kerrfluckers' overlords:
