Just got this picture of Bush talking today about what he memorized last week while ignoring Cindy at his gates: his nifty WWII speech. Look at how animated he is, talking about killing SS and fighting WWII. I suspect he mixes up which SS and which war he is begetting. From the Washington Post
A one-time oilman, Bush has rejected charges that the war in Iraq is a struggle to control the nation's vast oil wealth. While Bush has avoided making links between the war and Iraq's oil reserves, the soaring cost of gasoline has focused attention on global petroleum sources.
He drilled nothing but dry wells. So it figures, his oil war produces the same results.

Indeed, more and more wells are keeling over these days, aren't they? He is to oil what Midas was to eating food.
But Democrats said Bush's leadership falls far short of Roosevelt's.

"Democratic Presidents Roosevelt and Truman led America to victory in World War II because they laid out a clear plan for success to the American people, America's allies and America's troops," said Democratic Party chairman Howard Dean. "President Bush has failed to put together a plan, so despite the bravery and sacrifice of our troops, we are not making the progress that we should be in Iraq. The troops, our allies and the American people deserve better leadership from our commander in chief."
Now for my prayer tonight before going to bed: "Dear God, I wanted Dean for President. Can we make a deal about this sometime soon? Like tomorrow? If you are the Intelligent Designer, gads....what the...grrrrr....if you foisted this stupid leader on us....all I can say is...go to hell."

I went to the hen house for eggs today and got these! The challenge here is to pick out the egg and not the rock. Losers will be sent to Iraq if they pick the rock. If you pick the egg, you can eat it. You can eat the rock, too, but only if you are a dinosaur and need large pebbles in your gullet to grind up the food you eat.

From Salon:
Parton's live cover of "Blowin' in the Wind" should probably have been cringe-inducing, but it wasn't. Stripped down to Parton's powerful pipes and a guitar, it worked. And she definitely enunciated particular verses, especially the questions "How many ears must one man have before he can hear people cry? And how many deaths will it take till he knows that too many people have died?" Parton, who had perfect silence for the first half of the song, finished it to a massive standing ovation from the New York crowd. And however unlikely the messenger, it was almost impossible to imagine the lyrics being about anything other than a direct message to George W. Bush.

Losing the Heartland! Everyone can read the polls now....time to do the Nixon count-down.

From Rorschach via Atrios:
Just shut up now:(From the Sun Times)
Rush Limbaugh regarding Cindy Sheehan's Iraq war protest:"Frankly, I'm also fed up -- not fed up. I retract that. I'm weary, ladies and gentlemen, of even having to express sympathy. 'Oh, she lost her son!' Yes, yes, yes, but (sigh) we all lose things."

One finds so many fun postings at the comments section of Eschaton. And the cowardly Rush who couldn't fight because of cysts in his there a hell burning hot enough to roast his blubber?

According to the news, the man singing here is "Songman Callahan" and he is singing patriotic songs attacking Cindy for putting up those crosses bearing the names of dead soldiers.

&spades He has a cross saying "million dead" so we assume this refers to the dead in all our wars, no?

&spades He should realize a million dead is an awful lot of people dead, no?

&spades He is alive. This means he hasn't made any real sacrifices.

&spades He is within the age bracket of people who could be fighting in Iraq but he is at home harrassing the Gold Star mothers who lost sons and daughters in Iraq.

&spades He is doing what they are doing, reminding people how many humans died fighting in wars.

&spades He neglected to put up a cross for the many more millions of dead civilians from just this last century's wars.

&spades You can bet, he probably did the vulture routine in Florida over the dying brain dead woman, too.

These sorts love to ape patriotism and love of life but they really hate living people and are egomaniacs with a political bent, just what the right wing screamers scream about Cindy. Typical of them to accuse their victims of doing what they do themselves.

From Atrios
President Bush, noting that lots of people want to talk to the president and "it's also important for me to go on with my life," on Saturday defended his decision not to meet with the grieving mom of a soldier killed in Iraq.

Bush said he is aware of the anti-war sentiments of Cindy Sheehan and others who have joined her protest near the Bush ranch.

"But whether it be here or in Washington or anywhere else, there's somebody who has got something to say to the president, that's part of the job," Bush said on the ranch. "And I think it's important for me to be thoughtful and sensitive to those who have got something to say."

"But," he added, "I think it's also important for me to go on with my life, to keep a balanced life."

The comments came prior to a bike ride on the ranch with journalists and aides. It also came as the crowd of protesters grew in support of Sheehan, the California mother who came here Aug. 6 demanding to talk to Bush about the death of her son Casey. Sheehan arrived earlier in the week with about a half dozen supporters. As of yesterday (Saturday) there were about 300 anti-war protesters and approximately 100 people supporting the Bush Administration. In addition to the two-hour bike ride, Bush's Saturday schedule included an evening Little League Baseball playoff game, a lunch meeting with Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, a nap, some fishing and some reading. "I think the people want the president to be in a position to make good, crisp decisions and to stay healthy," he said when asked about bike riding while a grieving mom wanted to speak with him. "And part of my being is to be outside exercising."

On Friday, Bush's motorcade drove by the protest site en route to a Republican fund-raising event at a nearby ranch.

As Bush rolled by, Sheehan held a sign that said, "Why do you make time for donors and not for me?"
Why did America allow an open psychopath rule us? Talk about self centered. The five soldiers who were burned to death today aren't fit and well rested and focused.
