I grew up reading comic books wanting to be a superhero. Comics taught me that those who speak the truth are heroes, all the rest are liars.

Just Because They Say It, Doesn't Make It So...Does It?

Nail biting with less than four weeks to go, I'm asking: What Do They Know That We Don't?

Bush has publicly and privately banished any talk of losing the GOP majorities, saying, "We'll have a Republican speaker and a Republican leader of the Senate." The question is whether this is a case of justified confidence -- based on Bush's and Rove's electoral record and knowledge of the money, technology and other assets at their command -- or of self-delusion. I suspect the latter. But, what if they know something we don’t? It isn’t by chance that new voting technology is owned and operated by rethugs.

Still, it does sound familiar? It’s eerily like Bush's talk about progress in Iraq. That delusion is killing people. Maybe (as usual) Bush is too focused on the imagine in the bathroom mirror to notice that so far this month 53 soldiers have been killed in Iraq, over 100 non-combatants.
