BREAKING: They've Dug Their Own Grave
GOP congressional leaders are working on a compromise that may allow a Dubai company to manage six U.S. ports, CNN has learned.
This is it. It came down to whether the GOP would follow Bush into oblivion, or actually dissociate itself from the Cult of Bush that Glenn Greenwald so eloquently pointed out. As I pointed out in my blog, it became abundantly clear that Matt Drudge had decided to make his bed to lie with Bush.
And now, the GOP CONGRESS HAS DONE THE SAME--even in the face of the latest polls showing that Congressional Democrats are now more trusted on National Security than are Republicans.
Democrats: This is our world now. This is our time.
We have been given a mighty gift. We will crucify them at election time with this: as I said in a previous blog post of mine,
My only question is: how could Karl Rove and co. have been so stupid as to let this happen? Their deal with their base was a wink-wink, nod-nod that they were good Christian folk who were going to blast "THEM" (i.e., Arabs and Muslims in general) into oblivion, in one final crusade to bring about the book of Revelations.
What kind of idiots are they to let Bush threaten the only veto of his presidency to let a country that recognized the Taliban and has strong ties to terrorism control our ports?
Was is hubris? Stupidity? Incompetence? Sheer greed? What the hell was going through Rove's mind??
I don't know--but they've dug their own grave. It's time to throw the dirt on them.
[UPDATE]: CNN has now replaced their breaking news with a sentence about the death of actor Don Knotts. But believe me, it was there, and they'll have a full story about it shortly.
