Somebody else feels the same thing I do.....

Among certain Democratic sites, the name Doug Thompson is anathema. He writes a column called The Rant for the website Capital Hill Blue. (website here) Doug earned (perhaps rightfully) the ire of progressive and Democrats by claiming to reveal inside information of the Bush administration and specifically about GW Bush himself. Rumors of drinking, and aberrant behavior ran rampant in 03 and o4 but they were always attributed to anonymous sources who could not be verified. On several sites, even mention of the name of Doug's site will get you banned.

Having said that....

I've been surreptitiously reading Capital Hill Blue because sometimes he hits the topic right on the head....Like this:

Memo to Democrats: Don't buy into Bush's act
Now that he's lost, he wants to make nice and demands that the opposition forgive and forget.
A recommendation for incoming Democratic leaders Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid: Don't fall for dubious act. He's a venomous political snake who will turn and bite at the first opportunity because that's what snakes do.

Don't turn your backs on him, don't trust him for a nanosecond and don't believe for an instant that he serves any interest but his own.

George W. Bush proved this past week that he will sell out anyone - including his own administration and his party's leaders in Congress. If, last week, he had announced his decision to replace Donald Rumsfeld, it might have swayed enough voters to keep at least the Senate in GOP hands.

I believe this.

I don't buy Bush's latest "charm offensive" for a nanosecond. He's proven time and time again that he cannot be trusted. He's like "the bad seed". Every time you think he has reformed you discover that all the time he has been plotting your demise once again.

There seems to be a movement within some factions of our party that we can't be vindictive or combative with the Republicans now because "we're bigger than that." Maybe we are but we're also NOT STUPID....

Bush said at his press conference the other day, "This isn't my first rodeo!" Well, George, I have another saying, "This isn't my first load of cabbages either". I'm not buying your act. I've spent six years watching you and I know your nature. You're going to get your own way; you're going to feed your ego even if you have to set the whole world on fire. You don't care who you leave destroyed in your wake or how much havoc you reek because, it's all about you.

In other words:

It Ain't over yet George!

...and it won't be over until you and your neocons are on the defensive, or politically destroyed so that you can never reek havoc on my country again.

So bring on the subpoenas

So bring on the investigations...

and if impeachment be it.

Good post Ed,

Now comes the truly important work of preventing the last six years from ever happening again. As long as people cling to money, religion, and politics, these seemingly never-ending cycles of evil scoundrels, war, great struggles, and repeated injustices will never end.

These scoundrels need to be taught a lesson about truth and justice that humanity will take to heart, once and for all.

Did it ever dawn on you that money, religion, and politics are the prime sources of human struggle and continuing to beat a dead horse (or donkey, or elephant) will never solve our seemingly never-ending cycles of calamities? One good lesson to take from this election is that politics is a cycle that will always produce greedy scoundrels who must later be defeated or else. Why beat your heads against the same old wall when the door has been sighted and waiting for you to open your eyes and "see the light?" Truth, Wisdom, and Justice are non-political, non-religious, and non-monetary.

Here is Wisdom !!
