Plunging Into the Bizarro World of Neocon Madness

Just when you think it can't get more bizarre, it does. Constantly. We have democrats defending Bush's pick for the supreme court. We have republicans attacking Bush for making said pick. WTF!?

The first link is more evidence that the democrats are not the solution to the problem. They are better than republicans by a longshot. But they are only a means to an end - an available party that can be used to defeat the neocons - to progressives who want to creat a good and decent society.

The second link is funny and sad. Republicans jumped on the neocon bandwagon, yet they are discovering that even they can find limits to bad behavior. Unbelievable, coming from the party of lies, deceit, debauchery, and hypocrisy; but true.

Too bad neither party will admit that she was chosen as a "get out of jail free card" for the Bush regime. As they are convicted of their various crimes, they need an ally on the supreme court. You see, they couldn't care less about Roe vs Wade, except for the popular support they can muster through exploiting the issue. The reason they like to pack the supreme court with their own "activist judges" is because they keep committing treasonous crimes (anyone remember the Reagan and Bush I administrations?) and getting convicted for them. Miers can either support them, or recuse herself for conflict of interest and leave a tie vote. Evil wins. Again.

I have to laugh when I think of how many christian conservatives believe that bushie boy actually has their interests in mind.

The great scam that has been foisted on the american right is that the republican leadership actually has the same values and concerns that middle america has. HA! It is unfortunately the same scam that has been foisted on the american left.

Few if any, of the office holders in washington have a grasp of what life is like for the vast majority of us. As long as the elites on both sides of the aisle can keep us distracted by convincing us that our next door neighbor is the enemy, they can maintain their power and wealth no matter who is in the white house or congress.

Good post SheanC. What has me the most amazed about the NeoCon hypocrisy when it comes to the SCOTUS is the fact that just last month, they were barking at Democrats for asking questions of Roberts, which NeoCons equated with obstruction of the President's right to pick a nominee. Now, weeks later, they are bitching and moaning about Miers, saying Bush should pick a wingnut like them. Yes, the Democrats and the Republicans are both parties of buffoons but at least the Democrats are pock full of pure hypocrites like that.

..."but at least the Democrats are(n't) pock full of pure hypocrites like that."

That's correct.They're not all hypocrites, only about 8/10ths of them, give or take a dozen or two.

We need progressives and more social democrats.

It's so sleazy and corrupt. But what drives me batty is the in-your-face brazen attitude that comes along with it. It's a big fat one finger wave. Remember the days when that finger was attached to the helping hand of a representative voted into office to serve on behalf of their constituents?

Hey, wait a minute--! I get it now! Maybe the democrats are endorsing her not because they support her, but because she is so much trouble for the republicans that even the right is having a cow! Hah! Maybe it's the old "I know that you know that I know that you know..." ploy! Don Adams is dead, but the spirit of Maxwell Smart lives on, in the "logic" of the US Congress!
