The US learned from British intelligence that Iraq had attempted to acquire uranium from Africa

You have to say those 16 words out loud a few times to get the real feel for the story.

"The US learned from British intelligence that Iraq had attempted to acquire uranium from Africa."

George W. Bush said these 16 words in his 2003 State of the Union Address when he was told that both US and British intelligence didn't stand by those words.

"The US learned from British intelligence that Iraq had attempted to acquire uranium from Africa."

Virtually all US Senators (Russ Feingold didn't seem to trust this President) voted to allow the President far too much discretion to deal with this issue based at least in part, if not entirely upon those 16 words uttered with informed knowledge of their falsehood.

"The US learned from British intelligence that Iraq had attempted to acquire uranium from Africa."

These people wanted war and were bound and determined to get it. So, in order to get some political cover for his actions he said, "The US learned from British intelligence that Iraq had attempted to acquire uranium from Africa."

It appears the United States electorate has finally pulled it's collective cranial appendage from its anal orifice long enough to understand and turn away from these vile stewards of our government. But, as Karl (Turd Blossom) Rove and the Wrong Wing media attempt to cast their cape of evil over the national hindsight, what are the odds that the American public will once again slip into the stupor of feigned patriotism and paper tiger slogans to wonder what ever happened to the uranium that Iraq acquired from Africa... and praise god that Dubya is there to take care of us.

Or will we stay alert through November and remember that George W. Bush knew when he said, "The US learned from British intelligence that Iraq had attempted to acquire uranium from Africa", that it was false. But, he said it anyway...

... to scare us. Sadly, it worked... once.

Geez! When Bush Kool-Aid Drinkers Say It, It's Different.

Remember, "this September" is not a "date certain". What a bunch of hypocrites.

U.S. General in Iraq Outlines Troop Cuts
By MICHAEL R. GORDON
WASHINGTON, June 24 — The top American commander in Iraq has drafted a plan that projects sharp reductions in the United States military presence there by the end of 2007, with the first cuts coming this September, American officials say.

According to a classified briefing at the Pentagon this week by the commander, Gen. George W. Casey Jr., the number of American combat brigades in Iraq is projected to decrease to 5 or 6 from the current level of 14 by December 2007.

Under the plan, the first reductions would involve two combat brigades that would rotate out of Iraq in September without being replaced. Military officials do not typically characterize reductions by total troop numbers, but rather by brigades. Combat brigades, which generally have about 3,500 troops, do not make up the bulk of the 127,000-member American force in Iraq, and other kinds of units would not be pulled out as quickly.

American officials emphasized that any withdrawals would depend on continued progress, including the development of competent Iraqi security forces, a reduction in Sunni Arab hostility toward the new Iraqi government and the assumption that the insurgency will not expand beyond Iraq's six central provinces. Even so, the projected troop withdrawals in 2007 are more significant than many experts had expected.

Cut and Run Republicans!

Republicans cut and run on immigration.

When America needs action, the Republicans stick their heads in the sand. We have time to talk about flag burning, gay marriage and trumped up, politically motivated Iraq Resolutions, but no time to debate real issues affecting Americans.

Arlen Spector: a gutless Republican worm



The documents are on Unclaimed Territory exposing Arlen to be the "gutless Republican worm" Cafferty accused him of being.

When two branches of government surrender to the third branch, we're fucked! Remember when Arlen had balls?

Bush: The National Punch-Line to many, many jokes!


The dialogue from this morning's Presidential Press Conference:

Bush: You gonna ask your question with shades on?
Wallsten: Yes…
Bush: But there’s no sun out here.
Wallsten: It depends on your perspective.
Bush: Touché.

Sounds like a pretty inocuous exchange until you realize that Wallsten is legally blind!

Watch it!

The Wonkette's got dibs.

Jeb shows his true colors!


By BRENT KALLESTAD
Associated Press

The issue, in part, resulted from a secret test several months ago when elections office workers hacked into a Diebold optical-scan voting system in Leon County to show that it could be made to produce false results.

"The action by the Division of Elections to limit how I can do these tests, I find an imposition on my statutory authority," said Ion Sancho, the Leon County supervisor who questioned the secretary of state's standing to make a rules change without legislative approval.

Maria Matthews, the assistant general counsel for the Division of Elections who hosted the 90-minute workshop, said the state was comfortable it had the authority to go ahead with the rule changes.

"The division probably has moved more into a regulatory role over supervisors in certain aspects," she said afterward. "We're trying to provide some uniformity in the procedures and protocols that are used when a test or an assessment is done."

When we hear the Republicans say they are "trying to provide some uniformity"... our Spidey Sense starts tingling!

Ann Coulter was right!

Ann has been in the news lately while hawking her new book. She’s been running her mouth and stirring up the masses. As she is providing plenty of red meat for her base, it will be good for sales.

She has been getting hit pretty hard from the Left and a tad from the right. My first reaction was to pile on. But, the more I looked at the things the Slobber Goddess was saying, the more I realized that she is an expert and must be right.
Just look at some of her quotes:

"These self-obsessed women…”

"These broads are millionaires,

"Trying to convert their personal tragedy into a weapon to dictate national policy."

If you close your eyes and think about it, doesn’t that sound like a description of Ann Coulter? It sure sounded like her to me. After all, is there anyone more self-obsessed? She’s had several best selling books and must be worth a bundle. And, within days of the 9-11 disaster she used the tragedy of her friend as the basis for her column as a weapon to dictate national policy by suggesting “we should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity!”

Next she said, “How do we know their husbands weren't planning to divorce these harpies?”

Let’s face it, as a charter member of the Harpies of the World who would know better than Ann about another harpy. I figure: once you’ve been through the Puppy Blood Ritual, you’ll always have a bond with other harpies. I think they are able to smell one another.

Ann also suggested that “their shelf life is dwindling; they'd better hurry up and appear in Playboy," This put it over the top for me.
She can’t even get the support of butt-breath Rick Santorum! The best they can roll out for her is washed up Lady MacCheney and nobody David Horowitz, and even they can’t support her with a straight face. She’s Past-Pull-Date. It’s time for a hasty Mark-Down Sale.

But, when I settle down with the Playboy "Has Been" Issue and open up her center-fold, I hope they air-brushed some meat on her skinny bones and wiped the slobber off her upper lip.

Ann has been wrong so many times, we just take it for granted. This time, like the blind squirrel bumping into a nut, she might be right.

Buy my book! (Don't forget to wipe off the slobber!)


Venomous Wrong Wing Slobber Goddess, Ann Coulter throws red meat to her knuckle-dragging fans in order to sell her new book.

"These broads are millionaires, lionized on TV and in articles about them, reveling in their status as celebrities and stalked by griefparrazies. I have never seen people enjoying their husband’s death so much."

The Today Show's Matt Lauer didn't ask a single question about her felonious voting scandle.

Foaming Republicans - Great Piece...

... found at Common Dreams
by Larry Beinhart

Today’s Republican Party is a stool that rests on three legs of fear: fear of foreigners, fear of dark people and fear of sex.

The issues that touch on these fears are usually called hot button issues. But a better term is ‘foam at the mouth’ issues. Because they make Republicans foam at the mouth. As does any person or any idea that challenges that foaming.

Foaming is now most visible around the “immigration” issue.

The “immigration” issue is not about immigration.

It’s about Mexicans, those dark foreigners. There are no Minute Men, or Second Men or Hour Men for that matter, out to patrol the frozen wastes from the Straits of San Juan de la Fuca to the St. Lawrence Seaway. There are no foamers screaming for the Navy to get out on Lake Superior and shoot those Canadian canoes out of the water before the illegals reach Minnesota and take up residence in Lake Woebegone.

The reality is that the illegal immigration may be a problem, but it’s not a big problem. Their impact on health care, for example, is utterly trivial compared to our real health care problems. Their impact on wages is irrelevant compared to congress’s refusal to raise the minimum wage. Their impact on jobs is minor compared to the wide variety of ills that affect the American job market; globalization, the growth of corporate power, America’s disinvestment in infrastructure, the weakening of unions and the misplaced economics policies of the government (if you take at face value the claim that they are designed to stimulate the economy and create jobs).

When Republicans are in full foam at the mouth mode it does no good to discuss reality with them. That only makes them foam more. Rightly so, because reality is their enemy.

George Bush usually knows this.
