Oh - There's Something About Those Old-Time Republican "Family" Values

Not to mention that unique GOP sense of humor!

This was Chelsea Clinton in 1998:

This is what John McCain said about a teen-aged girl in 1998:

Why is Chelsea Clinton so ugly? Because her father is Janet Reno.

That was only ten years ago. When is this old man going to grow up?

Interior Ministry: US Airstrikes Kill 76 Afghan Civilians

Afghanistan’s Interior Ministry released a statement regarding the incident. In it they announced that 76 people, all civilians, had actually been killed in the strike. Among those killed were seven men, 19 women, and 50 children under the age of 15. The Independent quotes council member Saeed Sharif as saying the victims “were attending a holy Koran recitation” when the bombing began.

At what cost...?

In a departure from tradition, the Bush Administration has banned photographs of the flag-draped coffins of fallen troops returning from Iraq, citing concerns about the families' privacy. This controversial decision came under scrutiny when photos taken by a cargo worker in Kuwait were published in the Seattle Times.

You can see the photos at Honor the Fallen main page and the gallery.

A Hand to Iraq from Iran

BAQUBA, Aug 7 (IPS) The crisis over electricity failure grows as summer temperatures climb and a drought plagues Iraq. It is a crisis Iran is using to help Iraqis where the U.S. has failed.

But bad as it is, the situation has been improving over the past four months – with Iran's assistance. The Bush administration and western companies like Bechtel have failed to deliver on promises to improve infrastructure.

Joe Lieberman a Real Prick

The AP tells the truth - for once!
His top contenders are said to include Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. Less traditional choices mentioned include former Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Ridge, an abortion-rights supporter, and Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman, the Democratic vice presidential prick in 2000 who now is an independent.

Russia's Putin vs. Georgia's Saakashvili

Which one's got the corner on political realism and responsible leadership?

I haven't figured it out yet, but I'm working on it.

Dana Milbank Gets Purged!

Dana Milbank has been canned from Keith Olbermann's Kountdown program on MSNBC. Milbank's offense has to write that,
Barack Obama has long been his party's presumptive nominee. Now he's becoming its presumptuous nominee.
..... Some say the supremely confident Obama -- nearly 100 days from the election ..... has become a president-in-waiting. But in truth, he doesn't need to wait: He has already amassed the trappings of the office, without those pesky decisions.
A mere suggestion that Obama's world victory tour is a little premature and possibly might feed into the Republican mantra that Barack might be a meglomaniac gets someone 86-ed from a liberal news program. No wonder Milbanks referred to Olbermann as a "whiner"! He obviously found Kountdown more confining than CNN!

R.I.P. Bruce E. ! You, too, John McCain!

Remember the Anthrax attacks?

One month after 911, John McCain told David Letterman (18-October) that the Iraqis dunnit.

It went down like this:

How are things going in Afghanistan now?
I think we’re doing fine …. I think we’ll do fine. The second phase — if I could just make one, very quickly — the second phase is Iraq. There is some indication, and I don’t have the conclusions, but some of this anthrax may — and I emphasize may — have come from Iraq.
Oh, is that right?
If that should be the case, that’s when some tough decisions are gonna have to be made.
But we know now that Bruce E. Ivins, a lead scientist in the investigation of the anthrax attacks, done the deed himself. Ivins, it turns out, was mad as a mad hatter.

But in Bush's government, that did not prevent him from winning an 'attaboy' reward for his 'research'..
