Stupid Is As Stupid Does
Well, isn't that a pity. Extravagant, party-going yuppies have run aground on the rocks of life. It's kind of analogous to what is now happening to another party, that being the Republicans. It seems that a number of moderate right-wing legislators are feeling so alienated by the smell of sulfer, that they are abandoning ship and turning Democrat. Nancy Riley, a state senator from Oklahoma, cited "abhorrent" treatment, and a "lack of compassion for people" as the reason for her defection to the Democratic party. It's become apparent that moderate Republicans have had enough of being under Bush's hoofs, and are plenty willing to get up off the stretcher and join the enemy.
I'm wondering if there is any precedent for this phenomena. I've seen Republicans turn Democrat about as often as polar bears playing chess. No doubt, those will be some very conservative democrats, but they certainly will be well-received. This is a big disgrace for the Bush administration, and it could get a lot worse in the run-up to the election. With so much trouble brewing, it's about time to start anticipating what Karl Rove's promised October Surprise might be. War with Iran? Bin Laden on a stick? Maybe he's just bluffing, but Karl doesn't go down without a fight. Black November is coming.
I see where Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has chastised Hugo Chavez for his recent remarks about Bush in his U.N. speech, and referred to him as a thug. How unfortunate that the possible House leader should be such a boot-licking milquetoast queen in the face of all the wanton distruction that this administration has wrought. How dare she defend the worst president we've ever had. Chavez is nobody's ideal leader, but he spoke the truth, and he's entitled to that. Nancy Pelosi is a miserable worm, and the same goes for any other legislator who will not tell it like it is. Bush is in the house, and it stinks to high heaven.
