Phony Democrat To Pretend to Praise Bush 

The AP tells us that Zell Miller will be supporting the president by going to his convention and making a big speech:

" Georgia Sen. Zell Miller, the highest profile Democrat to endorse President Bush for re-election, will speak at the Republican National Convention later this summer, a congressional aide said Friday."

Being close with the White House, I was asked to write the speech for him. Er, I mean I read over a copy of his remarks. With a giant D for Democrat on his sweater, he will speak about how Democrats have long supported Mr. Bush. How Democrats think Bush is the best thing ever. How Democrats know that Bush is a string and capable leader, and that Democrats really don't want to risk a change in leadership at such "an important time in history."

Much will be made by our paid assets in the right-wing media. In the stories I have pre-written for them, they will admire and praise Zell for being a true Democrat, a smart Democrat, one that sees through Kerry. Miller will be presented as a voice of reason in the Democratic party - someone who has carefully weighed the evidence and has come to the only reasonable conclusion - Bush must rule the world.

Zell will be interviewed on these shows. He will wax eloquently about his fellow Democrats, as if he is really one of them and really understands and works for the Democratic Party.

And some of you, perhaps just enough, will fall for this ruse. You'll say, "whoa, wait a minute, a Democrat at Bush's convention said not to vote for the Democrats. I guess I know doubt my previously held conviction."

Wait, hold on. This just in. Orrin Hatch to speak at Democratic Convention! Ha! Just kiddin'

This all lays the groundwork for the 2008 election, in which only Democrats will be allowed at the GOP convention, and vice versa.

Republicans Rally To Defend Cheney's "Fuck" 

Yes, it's true, as reported in the New York Times "Cheney Owns Up to Profanity Incident and Says He 'Felt Better Afterwards' ". http://www.nytimes.com/2004/06/26/politics/campaign/26cheney.html?hp

It's not just that Cheney likes saying "fuck", it's that he likes to tell other people to go "fuck" themselves. What's more is that the Repubican National Committee Chair Ed Gilespie also likes the idea of saying "fuck" or "fuck you" to Democrats.

In the words of one Republican fan from Iowa who is a hospital worker, "[Saying fuck] tells me Cheney is very human".

I wish I had known that when I was young, I would have said it to my parents and friends a lot more and they would have thought I was more human. My parents were Republicans. They would understand today and forgive Cheney for saying "fuck", or was it "fuck yourself" or "fuck you" or "fuck off". I don't remember how he used the word "fuck" but he said "fuck" I think. Gosh I feel better.

"Go Fuck Yourself", Says Cheney To Leahy 

CNN reports:

"Sen. Patrick Leahy of Vermont, who was on the receiving end of Cheney's ire, confirmed that the Vice President used profanity during Tuesday's class photo."


Once again the Republicans prove that they are the more colorful of the two parties in power in Washington language-wise. I'm waiting for them to start using violence against the Democrats - all but certain once they tell a Senator to go fuck himself. They obviously view people as something to hit, beat and take a big crap on. I guess that's what being patriotic means these days.

Commander in Chief Not Responsible For Those He Commands 

Reuters lets us know how Orrin Hatch feels about the abuse:

"'To try to imply that the president of the United States is responsible for these aberrational activities by a few is, I think, irresponsible in and of itself,' Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch of Utah said of the abuses at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq. "

Silly people, thinking the guy in charge of everything is in charge of everything.

Dangerous Plane Easily Handled and Grounded 

The AP reminds us that it is easy to stop intruding planes in restricted airspace, if you want to:

"A single-engine plane that entered restricted airspace Monday during President Bush's visit to Cincinnati was escorted to an airport by two F-16 fighter jets, officials said."

Couldn't possibly do it on 9-11; can do it all the time if it is the President's plane.
