Being called a traitor by Dick Cheney is the highest honor you can give an American, and the more panicked talk we hear from people like him, Feinstein, and King, the better off we all are.
Go f– yourself.
9/11 the result of breathtaking Bush/Cheney incompetence.
A piece in Salon about the release of NSA documents portraying the days leading up to 9/11 don’t actually tell us much we don’t already know; namely, that the Bush administration didn’t take counter-terrorism at all seriously until it was too late. It’s too detailed to quote and do it justice, so check it out. Short version; they didn’t listen to experts and they didn’t fund counter-terrorism.
Their incompetence cost thousands of lives. The wars they started to overcompensate for their failure cost thousands more. There’s your “9/11 truth” — not an inside job, just a jawdroppingly incompetent one.
Stories to Watch: 10/2/11
Rick Perry’s getting some flack today for a Washington Post article that reports his association with a hunting camp. The problem; the camp until fairly recently a big, black rock at the entrance with the word “Niggerhead” painted on it. Here’s the thing: I have my doubts that this will bother anyone who was planning on voting for Perry. Expect the familiar “Oh, don’t be so PC!” responses from the right if this story gains any steam — although Herman Cain is already the exception to that rule.
In other Perry news: let’s invade Mexico! No, really.
Police arrested more than 700 Occupy Wall Street protesters on the Brooklyn Bridge yesterday, as the protests spread to other cities.
Dick Cheney wants an apology from Barack Obama for all the mean (and accurate) things he said about the Bush administration’s “War on terror.”
The Herman Cain campaign begins shedding staffers, which is always a sign that everyone thinks everything’s going just super-great.
Brainwash your kids to believe paranoid, rightwing BS the Glenn Beck way! It’s only “indoctrination” when lefties do it.
Finally, reason 5,329,405 explaining why I often call Fox & Friends “a show that’s such ridiculous bullshit that you wish there was a stronger word for bullshit.”
