Falling In Line (tags)

It is easy to get sucked into the ups and downs of elections. This year's presidential campaign is no different. The idea it's anybody's race and can go any way at any time gets played over and over for us like a two song playlist on repeat and shuffle. Except this two song playlist has added live commentary telling us every time that there is the distinct possibility the song could end up differently than we pretty much already know it will end up. We keep hearing in convincing fashion there is still the chance it could go differently this time. Yet if we've been paying attention we may see... well a distinct pattern perhaps.

The Search for Solid Leadership (tags)

Since learning about fabricated evidence to send this nation’s men and women into harm’s way, our nation’s voters have been on a quest to find something more meaningful in our elected officials. We swept Democrats onto office, and the majority feel they are either still waiting for the change promised, interested in breaking things up a little or ready to give things back to the GOP. The polls and predictions from CNN, FOX, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, NBC, the New York Times, Washington Post and the list goes on, all predict the House will switch hands to GOP control, and the Senate, they say, may very well do the same.

Joe Lieberman, got off the hook with little criticism.

Will he do the same for McCain or will another Israeli Firster get the nod? Stay tuned.

CHILLING DEJA VU: The Original, Eerily Premonitive Bush:Hitler Comparison from July 2001 (tags)

When this essay comparing Hitler's rise to power with Bush, and the tactics of the present GOP with the 1930s Nazis and Stalin's communist regime was first published in July, 2001, I was the recipient of a flood of hate mail and even a couple of death threats from militant rightwingers. But the comparison hit home: the article has been been circulating all over the world, reprinted in at least five languages. Unlike the lame, even bizarre comparisons rightwingers try to make between Clinton, Dean, et al. and Hitler, the similarity between Bush's regime and the rise of the Nazis is REAL and has evoked a shock of recognition in readers - or, as the title says, a "Chilling Déja Vu."
