Follow up to "I Have This Theory"

Well, I am a little late in posting a follow up to an earlier story, "I Have This Theory," but it happened, as I (and MANY others) predicted.

Harriet Miers withdrew her nomination and George Bush was "forced" to choose another Supreme Court nominee.

So he picked somebody who is "far righter" than even Scalia -- some guy named Alito. Google Alito and you are sure to find some really interesting stuff about this guy. Have fun, America.

Bush is Not Honest -- Duh!

Poll results are claiming that people believe that President Bush is not honest. To which I say, "Duh!"

He is a politician after all. The second requisite for a politician is the ability to lie and believe it. The first is self-aggrandizement.

Bush is clearly lacking neither. Nor or many politicians in Washington. They're all self-serving, self-righteous, ideological zealots out to make a buck or ten.

Read the whole story here.

United States of Torture

Molly Ivins just posted an article about the revelation that the CIA has torture prisons overseas. Read it here.

One of the key pieces of the article -- and a jab at President "Machismo":

I have known George W. Bush since we were both in high school -- we have dozens of mutual friends. I have written two books about him and so have interviewed many dozens more who know him well in one way or another. Spare me the tough talk. He didn't play football -- he was a cheerleader. "He is really competitive," said one friend. "You wouldn't believe how tough he is on a tennis court!" Just cut the macho crap -- I don't want to hear it.
