Projection, thy name is conservative

Whatever the right wing accuse others of, that is what they intend to do. When the Democrats win in 2008 there will be a right wing riot to prevent us from taking power. What can we do to stop it before it starts? If it starts, how can we protect life, property, and most of all, the ballot?

The decline and fall of the New York Times


It’s amazing how much we’ve learned over the last four years. We’ve learned about how a large segment of the Democratic Party is sympathetic to neo-conservatism and doesn’t care about our civil liberties or the balance of powers. We’ve learned that the mainstream press is more likely to aid and abet an obstruction of justice than they are to report what they know about White House crimes to the America people. We’ve learned just how much New Democrats and the Democratic Leadership Council hates the left-wing of the Democratic Party. We’ve learned that the Washington Post editorial board is little better than the Wall Street Journal editorial board or FOX News. Now, we learn that even the New York Times editorial board is more inclined to amplify the most discredited people in the country than they are to push new voices that have been proven prescient.

Sulzberger should resign.

A Cold Rain: Excerpt from Neck Deep

John Warner’s popularity

Scott Nolan comments at Blacknell blog:

I think what has happened is that the current group of putzes in office have lowered our standards so much that even John Warner’s failed terms as a U.S. Senator look pretty decent and civilized in comparison.

It is a sad, sad state of affairs when liberals heap praise on a conservative just because he did not act like a frathouse bully, and completely ignore his record of supporting the war in Iraq.

Having said that – if Warner feels somewhat empowered by the praise, and by his new status as a nothing-to-lose senator, he might actually do some good while still in office. It is clear he regrets his blind support for this greedy and illegal war. Perhaps he can make a difference finally.

Time will tell.

Double standards

Why the rush to praise Sen. Warner?

I really don’t understand this rush to praise – as decent and honorable – someone who hasn’t been that at all, when it’s come to the important things over the past six years. Does it arise from some need to convince ourselves that there really are decent Republicans left out there? The traditional aversion of the eyes from the bad that comes when someone announces a retirement? Perhaps that he’s been your Senator for as long as you can remember?
