Galloway: A state of desperation and denial in the White House
Galloway: A state of desperation and denial in the White House

The power brokers in Washington spent the week carefully arranging fig leaves and tasteful screens to cover the emperor's nakedness while he was busy pretending to listen hard to everyone with an opinion about Iraq while hearing nothing.

.........

Did you notice that at every stop on the president's information-gathering tour this week, there was a very familiar face looming over his shoulder? There was Vice President Dick Cheney, looking as nervous as a long-tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs.

Should the president suddenly have an original thought or seem to be going wobbly, Cheney will be right there to squelch it or to set him straight.

It can be argued that George W. Bush understood little about war and peace and diplomacy and honesty in government. Cheney understood all of it, and he bears much of the responsibility for what's gone on in Washington and in Iraq for the last six years. Keep a sharp eye on him. Desperate men do desperate things.

1. I thought de nile was just a river in egypt?
I think that they have been dinged up pretty good by the election and the ISG report - but they desperately don't want ot admit the implications of that dinging up.

4. Impeach Impeach Impeach
It's obvious that Bush is severely depressed and has broken with reality. He wants this nightmare to be over as much as we do - and he wants to "die with his boots on". And, he'll continue to sodomize the Constitution as long as he's in office.

Let's help everyone out - let's impeach now. The pretend Democrats hate this, because they want a nut on the Right to triangulate off of - but let's do what's best for the country, not what's best for Mrs. Clinton's presidential prospects.
