I can't get enough of these "Republicans Turn on Bush"
stories. You guys seem to have much wider interests....
But first a question. Is Celia Cohen at Delawaregrapevine
a blogger? Well, let's take a look see. Transparent bias?...Check. Funded by a shadowy group of millionaires?...Check. Interested more in character assassination than reporting?...Check. Yes. She is a blogger. Dave at First State Politics
switches to wordpress from blogger. No signs of switching from the party of fantasy and wishful thinking to the party of common sense and results. Check out Politakid's page on
Delaware's Iraq war dead. It is nice to know that as many Republicans decide to run away from any and all discussion of Bush's misbegotten war (Dave - Where is that Iraq post?) Politakid
is remembering the Lance Corporals and Sergeants that are getting stabbed in the back by Bush and Castle. Karmic Jay
gets the money quote on Friedman's recent column: Mr. Cheney, if we’re in a titanic struggle with Islamic fascists, why have you and President Bush resisted any serious effort to get Americans to conserve energy? Why do you refuse to push higher mileage standards for U.S. automakers or a gasoline tax that would curb our imports of oil? (snip... Why? Because it might impose pain on the oil companies and auto lobbies that fund the G.O.P., or require some sacrifice by Americans.Nancy
is keeping the heat on Carper with help from Frieda Berryhill. Hube's
coverage CHSD harassment religious intolerance case continues to impress: The settlement was based on a separate lawsuit brought BY the US DoJ's Civil Rights Division based on the [Muslim] family's complaint. This is a wholly separate legal case than the individual lawsuit brought by the family (the mother) that was reported on in the News Journal and NY Times.
Hube regrets that the demands of the family include the district's guarantee that the family's daughters wouldn't face ridicule if they returned to the school. No doubt that is an impossible grantee for a district to make when you are talking about writing a policy to cover "student" behavior - but I think a guarantee of freedom from "staff" abuse is reasonable. Donviti is
taking a break. No new posts since Aug. 11th. Dana is onto
Greg Chambers. If you click through to the earlier Chambers story (and you are a Republican), please admit that you are thinking, "WTF?" Tommywonk looks down the road "I would expect to continue to hear Republicans attack Democrats on terrorism, like this television ad with Hilary Clinton's face next to Osama bin Laden's. (The ad also misspells "fascists" as "facists."
I'm not about to give someone a hard time for spelling...but Clinton and Osama? Does the RNC really want to remind everyone about Osama? Mike M at Down With Absolutes
is calling out R's for ducking debates. I'm down with that.
