I managed to catch a bad case of the flu for a couple of days and couldn't post in any rational manner...(see my personal blog for an example of posting under the influence of the flu bug) I've been trying to catch up on all the blogs and the latest news and I'll try to digest some of it for you.
First of all, our old friends Christy and Jane over at firedoglake have initiated another net roots project. Notice, by the way, that firedoglake has a new url...be sure to add it to your "favorites". Jane and Christy made sure that the infamous NETROOTS lit up the FAX machines of the Senate Judiciary Committee Yesterday and are now embarking on the "Rubber Stamp Congress" Project. Here's how she describes it:
But wait, there’s more. We’re asking you to take the next step in citizen action with us. And it is a doozy: we’re asking you to purchase a rubber stamp and send it to a specified address — which we plan on delivering to a member of Congress. (Since this will be a surprise for them, we’re not revealing to whom just yet.) A huge thank you to Matt Stoller of MyDD for agreeing to be our patriot delivery person.
The stamp will say "Rubber Stamp Republican Congress."
The latest report is that they have generated over 200 rubber stamps so far.
Check it out here We're lucky to have people like Christy Smith and Jane Hamser.
Aside from that, the New York Times printed the story on Bush's plans to go to war regardless of the UN Weapon inspectors or any additional resolutions from the UN. The evidence is mounting that this war was pre-ordained. Keith Olberman picked up the story last night and you can see the clip on Crooks and Liars.
Crooks and Liars also has a clip on "The War Memo" up today. You can see that here.
Can you believe it? Even TWEETY is talking about it?
