Illegal Gay Liberal Mexican Flag Burners

From the NYT (registration required, sorry):

The Immigration Road Show

Given the topics that have preoccupied Congress lately, one wonders why the Republicans don't simply propose a catchall bill aimed at illegal gay liberal Mexican flag burners and be done with it. The immigration debate has been obscured for too long by a fog of distortion and fear, and the House Republicans are gambling that the public won't see through it. The American people deserve better. They deserve action on a good immigration bill, and if this do-nothing Congress won't give it to them, they should elect a Congress that will.
Finally, we are at a point where campaigning in place of policy doesn't work anymore. Everything the Republicans have done in the last six years has been a campaign stop, event, or slogan. The war in Iraq, the immigration debate, those evil gays threatening marriage (i know they are the chief source of difficulty in my marriage...heck, how can L. and I be expected to treat each other with respect and love with door?) It's a con game, a trick, and finally, finally, the American people are tired of having their intelligence insulted by these wankers.

The U.S. Flag is Sacred, Unless I Can Gratify My Ego by Defacing One for a Fan...

Apparently, it's not okay to burn a flag in a constitutionally-guaranteed act of protest speech, but it is okay to mark it up with a Sharpie pen to gratify your own ego.

UPDATED: Can They All Come Lay Down on Your Couch, Dick?

"I don't think anybody anticipated the level of violence that we've encountered," Cheney said. He said much of the continuing violence has its roots in "the devastation" that 30 years of Saddam Hussein's iron- fisted rule "had wrought on the psychology of the Iraqi people."

So's NOT any of the following:
1) Weapons of mass destruction
2) al-Qaeda

No no, it's that the Iraqis all need mental health care.

No one anticipated the level of violence?! You mean, no one as in EVERYONE?! Jeebus H. Roosevelt Rice, you whining self-excusing cybertronic lardass! What planet are you from????

Update: Just so you know, we can prove that you are a liar.

Get Serious, America

From Wired:
Here's a sodden thought: More people logged on to vote in the recent American Idol finale than voted in the last presidential election. But we're not sheep. No, sir.
How depressing.

Read the original article, too.

Molly Rocks

From her latest column:
I believe what we have here is a difference over moral values.

The Republicans are worried about the flag, gay marriage and the terrible burden of the estate tax on the rich. The rest of us are obviously unnecessarily worried about war, peace, the economy, the environment and civilization. Another reason to vote Republican - they have a shorter list.

WW3 is Getting Closer

Bolton is frothing at the mouth. Ironically, of all President Bush's people, this guy is probably the most accurate thermometer of the President's foreign policy intentions.

That's disturbing because he's racheting up his rhetoric in preparation for an attack on Iran.

My God, this is really going to happen.

Gore 2008: I'm so there.

I'm telling you, people....
...this is going to happen.
