Is He at it Again?

Hrummph.
Bush's poll ratings are swirling around the toilet and he's become a liability to the GOP during an election year, so what does he do?

He trots out his secret weapon again: the anti-gay marriage amendment.

Doesn't the Senate have better things to do than toying with the Constitution with an issue that most of the red states have already banned?
Bush already has referred to the Constitution as, "a goddamned piece of paper," so why should he care what's in it when he's never shown any interest in it before?
"Sadly, President Bush is playing election-year politics with this divisive issue," the Rev. Barry W. Lynn, executive director of Americans United for Separation of Church and State, said Friday. "He is shamelessly using this ploy to energize his right-wing base. We should never rewrite the Constitution to enshrine intolerance."
Amen, brother.

I've been listening to Al Franken's book, Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them,and Dumbya's latest ploy seems like the most natural thing in the world.

My spouse is convinced that with Diebold voting machines everywhere, this is the way it's gonna be.

Whaddya think?

I think Diebold conspired with the GOP to rig voting machines in the last two presidential elections.
I don't think Bush won either race.
Unless the electorate demands paper trail balloting, we may continue to be fucked.

That's my darlin's point. It's depressing.

Then there was Molly Ivins fighting the good fight in today's Alternet.

I lurch back and forth between hope and despair.

WIth intelligent writers screaming that this is a ploy by the asshats in power, it should be obvious shouldn't it?

Or am I dreaming that the general public is smart enough to figure it out?

The general public doesn't read political articles!!!
We are a nation of fucking apathetic idiots!

Six months after my last entry, George W. Putz's comments today were enough to make me fire up the blog again.

Karen Zipdrive said...

Dono made some excellent points in his blog entry.
Check it out.

Thanks, Karen Z! Your comment spoke volumes, as "property values" are the only kind of values the GOP is honestly concerned about.

Even the evening news is talking about what bullshit this crap was..and if the general population does get all their info from those 20-second soundbites from CBS and the others..then they heard was a bunch of hooey it all is..
