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.

Wednesday's Waxing

Why Does Governor Pawlenty Support This Guy?

When McCain was asked to comment on missing six consecutive weeks worth of votes: McCain deadpanned: ‘Oh my god, is that right? … It’s a nice day, the weather’s nice.’

Say, didn't Pawlenty support Bush also? Timmy has some serious flaws...

Be Afraid!?
It’s when I read stuff like this that I can’t sleep at night and I worry about America’s future. Before Bush I might have reassured myself with the ‘it can’t happen here’ denial, but given the last 6 years, it can and could and might and would.

With scarcely a mention in the mainstream media, President Bush has ordered up a plan for responding to a catastrophic attack. Under that plan, he entrusts himself with leading the entire federal government, not just the Executive Branch. And he gives himself the responsibility “for ensuring constitutional government.”

The Haircut
As Edwards explained in a North Carolina Town Hall meeting, the haircut was scheduled by staff, squeezed in between the nonstop timetables of campaigning.

“When you are a presidential candidate going all over the country you do what you have to do where you have to do it--you don’t have any choice. And they get people, because you don’t have any time, they get people to come to you--they don’t give you the bill, they send the bill so I didn’t know it would be that much. I knew it would be expensive now, I don’t want to mislead--when a haircut guy comes to your hotel to do your hair it’s not going to be cheap, so I knew that, but I did not know it was this expensive… nobody should be paying four hundred dollars for a haircut.”

Minnesota Vampyre of Note
Besides his short gubernatorial run for office in 2006, Jonathon "The Impaler" Sharkey now get to list a documentary on his resume.
IMPALER documents the strange fascination the media had with Jonathon and the macabre, absurd, funny and ultimately heartbreaking events that took place throughout this 8-month long documentary. Jonathon has made more announcements since the completion of this documentary including his candidacy for President of the United States, his promise to "impale" George W. Bush if elected, and a threat to "impale" the filmmaker of IMPALER at this screening of this film mocks him in anyway. This is a must see film!

Someone More Mad than Me?
I really thought I’d corner the marketplace on my rage over the Iraq funding but the madman at Liberal Street Fighter is there:

Did you REALLY think the Donklephants would actually work hard to end the war, to stop the spilling of blood and treasure in a country WE destroyed in a criminal war of choice? Well, you need to grow up and embrace compromise. more

As funny as a chow chow alert seems, it’s not.
During yesterday’s press conference, President Bush warned individual reporters that terrorists were a danger to their kids. “They are a threat to your children, David,” he told NBC’s David Gregory. “It’s a danger to your children, Jim,” he said to New York Times reporter Jim Rutenberg. Dana Milbank notes:

This last warning was perplexing, because Rutenberg has no children, only a brown chow chow named Little Bear. It was unclear whether Bush was referring to a specific and credible threat to Little Bear or merely indicating there was increased “chatter in the system” about chow chows in general.

Temporary Digs? I don’t think so.
The Iraq embassy we're building in Bagdad has an estimated cost of just under $600 million dollars. a fortress compound of over 100 acres in downtown Bagdad.

The Bu$h Whisperer
Frances Fragos Townsend was appointed Homeland Security Advisor by Bu$h on May 28th, 2004. In the past Fran Townsend has lectured at FBI legal advisors' conferences
about DOJ policy. Bush has entrusted her with, among other things, the task of implementing sweeping recommendations that a presidential commission made last year for reforming the intelligence community which makes her less likable in the intelligence community than gum on the bottom of an agent’s shoe.

Fran Townsend’s comments regarding the failure to apprehend Osama bin Laden after over five years “Well, I’m not sure [it’s a failure] — it’s a success that hasn’t occurred yet. I don’t know that I view that as a failure.” She also cited that bin Laden is most likely in Pakistan and we can’t simply ‘invade a sovereign nation’……

Now part of the inner circle...she whispers to Bush.
