What if Bush Iraqs IRAN?

By: Wednesday September 20, 2006 5:30 am

Looking at the civil war in Iraq, it’s hard to imagine what would (will) happen if (when) George W. Bush turns his talents on Iran. If we think we’ve got problems now — and we do — going into Iran would make the bombs bursting in Baghdad seem like firecrackers at a football game. Sam [...]

Our Troops Keep Taking the Hit

By: Wednesday September 13, 2006 11:28 am

  I was supposed to be in a conference call this morning with VoteVets, but was interrupted. So I asked them to send me their most recent ad campaign in support of the troops, which unmasks George Allen even further.

Did Curt Weldon Dodge the Draft?

By: Wednesday September 13, 2006 8:30 am

  If you’re not familiar with Curt Weldon, he’s the guy who wanted to take his shovel to Iraq, and excavate the country in hopes of finding WMD nobody else could find.

How Did We Get From 9/11 to Iraq?

By: Monday September 11, 2006 8:30 am

You’ll have to excuse me, but I’m not feeling very well this morning. I’m sick to my stomach over the reality I see out over the horizon. And believe me, it has nothing to do with ABC’s desperate docudrama. I mean really, showing the Washington monument immediately after a news clip of Clinton talking about [...]

  guest post by Taylor Marsh When I saw the latest insanity in The New Republic, "A Defense of Ann Coulter" by Elspeth Reeve, I knew it was time to let fly my latest piece. Reeve’s article is a beauty. That is if you like pimping for the Republicans’ prime propagandist. Yes, yes, Coulter has said some terrible [...]

IRAQ and the Republican Collapse

By: Wednesday August 16, 2006 8:37 am

  guest post by Taylor Marsh You’ve got George Allen going all Strom Thurmond, with Rick Santorum cozying up to LGF, while John Bolton is so desperate to get out of committee he’s doing interviews with a drunk wingnut blogger. But that’s not even the worst of it. The Republican Party base no longer believes the [...]
