I may be wrong but it's likely that the impeachment demonstration we held in
The organizer hired a helicopter to film us. You haven’t done
And, the “liberal” media went silent. Hundreds of people, beautiful images, tourists gathering on the walkways to watch. But, shhh! .Please do not spill the secret that the progressive community in Nancy Pelosi’s district is being shunned. And, that’s not hyperbole. Code Pink was there, PDA was there, the Greens were there, Iraq Veterans Against the War, present. The World Can’t Wait, Impeach Bush Cheney, civilians who’ve never protested anything were there. Who am I leaving out? We were all there. And we will continue to be there until these criminals exploiting the structures of our government are sad history. But, it must be a real chore for our “liberal” media to ignore us all at the same time just as it must be difficult for Nancy Pelosi to ignore the expressed needs of her district.
I understand that the Democrats see an opportunity to enlarge their majority in 2008. But, I don’t see how anyone in the statesmanship business can discount the lives that will be lost in the next year. It only took Bush nine months to ignore every bit of intelligence that could have prevented September 11.

The only thing that has changed between last July and now is that the Hunt Oil Company clinched a deal in Kurdistan – unless you count all the people that have died or have been wounded or displaced since then. How completely unsurprising.
Petraeus has come and gone and that squalid episode has only deepened our revulsion. Petraeus is a serial liar. He lied about mobile weapons labs in the run up the sacking of
For Congress, we may need an entire treeful of foliage and a rapid distribution system. Both Houses have now condemned MoveOn for making public a nickname that the good general’s own troops coined. We are now in the run up to a new war of choice, the road ahead being smooth by the same Democratic leadership who promised us in 2006 that they would end the war if we voted them in.
