The Ship Is Tilting And The Rats Are Getting Nervous

Well, it looks like the lies are beginning to catch up with Bush, Blair, Rumsfeld, Powell, Rice, and all the other rats. Now, it will be interesting to see whether the people will respond appropriately in the next election, or if they simply don't care, in which case we can hold two funerals. One for the country and another for the Truth. The Brits appear to be rather incensed at their boy. How 'bout that.

Meanwhile, at a convention of college Republicans in Washington back in July, which featured the likes of Karl Rove and Tom Delay addressing the young shock troops, besides peddling t-shirts and handbags emblazoned with Bush's smiling visage, they had bumper stickers for sale that said, "Bring Back The Blacklist," and "No Muslims=No Terrorists."

So along with openly embracing a return to McCarthyism, it appears the Neocons are now advocates of genocide. One would think either of those items alone, but certainly taken together, would be worth a banner headline on the front page of the New York Times. But so far, I haven't seen anything about it in the mainstream press. For the full story, unearthed by Copeland, see Michelle Goldberg.
