That's one thing you can say about the GOP. They do learn from their mistakes.

Deviously so.

We're already halfway to internment camps.

They have detention camps set up now. From a report earlier this month, the word was - there are 3500 beds now. But the estimation of "need" is now 20-thousand. And they've already considered separating kids from their parents. Remember that one?


This is a good summary!

To me it feels worse, AND on top of all the other similarities, the Russians are involved in this one.


Welcome to DU, dogandturtlemom.

I read a lot of his stuff during the campaign. We may most cordially have to agree to disagree.

Cue Matthew 25:35-45.

Matthew 25:35-45English Standard Version (ESV)
35 For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, 36 I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ 37 Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? 38 And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? 39 And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ 40 And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’
41 “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. 42 For I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me no drink, 43 I was a stranger and you did not welcome me, naked and you did not clothe me, sick and in prison and you did not visit me.’ 44 Then they also will answer, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to you?’ 45 Then he will answer them, saying, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to me.’
Matthew 25:40 Or brothers and sisters

Pretty much all you need.

The McClatchy newspapers were some of the VERY few publications to get the Iraq War/WMD scam right.

VERY few major papers or chains did anything but genuflect and take the phony baloney from the cheney machine and simply swallow it and shit it out onto their front pages without bothering to ask too many questions or dig into any truths. The Knight Ridder papers weren't fooled much, either.

The New York Times, on the other hand, was TOTALLY owned at that time. A wholly-owned subsidiary of the Vice President's info-manipulation machine. A literal dumping ground of bush/cheney lies about the war and about Saddam Hussein and the effort to sweep up everything about 9/11 and blame it all on Iraq. cheney would drop nice tasty little dog biscuits on his little pet Judith Miller, and she'd dutifully write it all up, attribute it to unnamed sources high up in the administration who didn't want to be identified. NO DUH! They were mainly cheney! Then her latest big story would land on the front page of the New York Times Sunday edition, usually two-columns above the fold, and then cheney and his little band of liars (rummy, wolfie, contradicta, etc) would fan out across the Sunday morning news shows and spread the story, with the inevitable "it's the FRONT PAGE STORY IN THE NEW YORK TIMES!!!!!!!OMG!!!!!!!OMG!!!!!!!" NO DUH! The story cheney had planted with Judith Miller, a day or so earlier. Like a news Mobius strip from Hell.

Yeah! Jackie Speier!

Democrat from Northern CA. She was the late Congressman Leo Ryan's assistant, and accompanied him to Guyana when he was investigating Jim Jones and the so-called "People's Temple" scam. Things went WAY wrong that day. Gunfire erupted as Leo Ryan and his delegation were trying to take off from the little local airport. Ryan was shot and killed. Jackie Speier was shot and wounded. I think she had to have her hand almost completely reconstructed. She had the damnedest-looking cast on that arm for the longest time. I remember working with Bob Flick, an NBC producer not too long after that. He and his sound man, Steve Sung, were also shot and wounded. Their cameraman, Bob Brown, was shot and killed, as was their reporter, Don Harris. San Francisco Examiner photographer Greg Robinson and defecting Temple member Patricia Parks were also killed.


Yeah, unfortunately, yes.

Any smirking or "is it wrong that I'm smiling?" references will just push them back into cold, locked-down denial. It'd be counter-productive, especially if they're just barely starting to see and grope around in the light. Their eyes will take some time getting used to the light, anyway, after being so deeply in the dark.

REMEMBER: It's mighty hard to admit you were wrong. Particularly when it means you may also have to admit you've been HAD. That's a tough realization to have to face. Especially when you're facing your own face in the mirror. So let them find their way. They might even remember you were a class act around them, which might help render them more favorably predisposed toward you. Zen, and maybe also the Law of Attraction, I think.

I'd want to crow, too. So I'd do it right here!

Which reminds me of the Absolutely, Positively, Hands-Down F**king Most Spectacularly PATHETIC

excuse EVER - for a public admission that one has messed up. Take it away, Ronnie!

"...my heart and my best intentions still tell me that's true. But..."

Ronald Wilson Reagan. Yep, there's an L-I-A-R in there somewhere. And an amazingly creative liar he was. Yes, Ronnie. See, there's this thing called evidence...

We have now entered the REAL "Al Franken Decade."
