A Pep Talk For Progressives?

Chimpy's speech today, that was supposed to rally the troops in support of his illegal war in Iraq, had the opposite effect on me.

"There's always a temptation in the middle of a long struggle to seek the quiet life, to escape the duties and problems of the world and to hope the enemy grows weary of fanaticism and tired of murder," he said.

Exactly! We need to stay strong in the face of three more years of Bush's madness and killing in the Mid East and at home. We need to fight the good fight in 2006 and hopefully in 2008, we can have a president that isn't a drunken compulsive liar with a Napoleon complex.

"We are facing a radical ideology with immeasurable objectives to enslave whole nations and intimidate the world," Bush said.

No shit, Sherlock. Pat Robertson, James Dobson, Franklin Graham. All of those loonies are threatening to send the whole world back to the dark ages.

Now I don't want to be accused of forgetting that terrorists are the real enemy. But it is becoming more apparent every day that both al-Qaeda and George Bush both have pretty rotten agendas. I just think the odds are greater that Bush's rancid domestic agenda has a higher probability of affecting me personally and people I care about.

    If anyone can tell me what this means, I will consider giving them a small prize:

    "Evil men obsessed with ambition and unburdened by conscience must be taken very seriously, and we must stop them before their crimes can multiply."

    And this was from the prepared remarks, God help us.

    it sounds like he's begging us progressives to stop him.

    That, Rod, seems like Bush painting a bullseye on his posterior... as well as on those butt's of Tom Delay, bill frist, Dick Cheney and other members of the Far Right...
