This American Circus

Lies and distortions have become the “newspeak” coming out of Washington. Getting a straight answer is an art nowadays. The government has just released the blueprints for the World Trade Center, four years after they disappeared in a puff of smoke. It’s not as if the people wanting these blueprints were on a “fishing expedition”, thousands died in a tragedy that has never been fully explained. There are countless other skyscrapers in New York and the world, wouldn’t it be a good idea to have independent experts look at the causes of the sudden structural failure of buildings designed to survive just such a scenario as what happened on 9/11? Is it no wonder that citizens of this nation are a wee bit skeptical of a government that makes evidence of the disaster hard to get? If a private individual would have impeded an investigation the way the White House has impeded this investigation, they would have been charged with obstruction.

Now we also have John McCain coming back from Iraq telling us that being in Bagdad is like a Spring day in the park. Meanwhile roadside bombs made out of artillery shells that we left lying around on our mad rush to Bagdad are killing men women and children not to mention our soldiers. Where did he go on his little jaunt? Does this mean now that I should start investing in Air Iraq or the Iraqi Bureau of Tourism? Is this a good place to take my Grandchildren for the summer?

I’ve got a sinking sensation that John McCain has early onset Alzheimer disease. I’m not kidding on this one. He has said some outrageous things in the past few weeks. I think, and remember that I’m no Doctor, that if he were to be elected President, that a strong vice-presidential candidate would be a necessity. Unless you believe that Basra might be a good place to experience Spring Break, a little investigation of the Senator’s mental heath would be a good thing if you are planning to support him in 2008.

I believe that the Democrats are at last beginning to see the light. The long and short of dealing with the White House is that they will not compromise, nor will they change their tactics because the Democrats run Congress. Bush doesn’t believe that Congress has the authority to stop his schemes as long as he says we are at war.

The regime is facing problems with the way it fired those eight Federal Prosecutors, and the Democrats are threatening cutting the funding for the war altogether if he doesn’t sign the appropriations bill the way it is. Frankly, I hope he veto’s the bill. There are key issues that are also packaged with this bill that would give windfall profits and claims on Iraqi oil by three huge oil companies. If he veto’s this spending bill, he will have alienated quite a few people that he needs to count on and will have shot himself in the foot. This will be an interesting week, in an interesting year.
