Curt Weldon’s Able Danger Claims Are Baseless

The Senate Intelligence Committee released a report showing that Curt Weldon’s claims that Able Danger knew of Mohammed Atta before 9/11 and were thwarted in their attempts to warn America are baseless and false, as we reasonable people knew. Curt Weldon and Rick Santorum are men who will go to their graves thinking differently. Well they are now out of position of power and influence, so that helps. There is still so much work to be done though to get past this hysteria and hyperbole, to a point where Americans can think clearly and logically, as well as ethically and morally about our enemy. There is still too much raw anger in the air…

Inside the Worst Congress EVER

Rolling Stone has the cover

and cover story on the worst Congress ever in the history of the United States. And before anyone starts saying this is a partisan swipe, seeing that it was a Republican led Congress, a recent Rasmussen poll shows the 109th Congress has only a 13% approval rate. Who in the world gets only a 13% approval rate! I’m sure more Iraqis approved of Saddam than Americans approved of the 109th Congress! Over at the TPMuckraker, they highlight the lowlights of this most infamous Congress. But I would just like to quote from that Rolling Stone article. He says it far better than I can:

But the 109th Congress is no mild departure from the norm, no slight deviation in an already-underwhelming history. No, this is nothing less than a historic shift in how our democracy is run. The Republicans who control this Congress are revolutionaries, and they have brought their revolutionary vision for the House and Senate quite unpleasantly to fruition. In the past six years they have castrated the political minority, abdicated their oversight responsibilities mandated by the Constitution, enacted a conscious policy of massive borrowing and unrestrained spending, and installed a host of semipermanent mechanisms for transferring legislative power to commercial interests. They aimed far lower than any other Congress has ever aimed, and they nailed their target.

“The 109th Congress is so bad that it makes you wonder if democracy is a failed experiment,” says Jonathan Turley, a noted constitutional scholar and the Shapiro Professor of Public Interest Law at George Washington Law School. “I think that if the Framers went to Capitol Hill today, it would shake their confidence in the system they created. Congress has become an exercise of raw power with no principles — and in that environment corruption has flourished. The Republicans in Congress decided from the outset that their future would be inextricably tied to George Bush and his policies. It has become this sad session of members sitting down and drinking Kool-Aid delivered by Karl Rove. Congress became a mere extension of the White House.”

Bush Needs Bin Laden Free and Alive

I don’t think I’ve made this point strongly enough. Bush needs Osama Bin Laden and his terrorist organization to be free and alive and active in order to make his political points for Republicans. Continue Reading Bush Needs Bin Laden Free and Alive…

Eye of Mordor on Iraq

Rick Santorum’s desparation continues to increase. Now he is trying to tie the war in Iraq to Lord of the Rings by saying:

“As the hobbits are going up Mount Doom, the Eye of Mordor is being drawn somewhere else,” Santorum said, describing the tool the evil Lord Sauron used in search of the magical ring that would consolidate his power over Middle-earth.

“It’s being drawn to Iraq and it’s not being drawn to the U.S.,” Santorum continued. “You know what? I want to keep it on Iraq. I don’t want the Eye to come back here to the United States.”

Um, so Mr. Santorum, for your analogy to be correct, Frodo and Sam would be, who exactly? The Eye of Mordor was distracted by Aragorn and his army from Gondor, so that Frodo and Sam could climb the mountain and destroy Sauron’s ring. So….who exactly are Frodo and Sam in your analogy? I can see that you are comparing Aragorn’s army to our military in Iraq, apparently distracting the Eye and all the orcs from getting in the way of Frodo and Sam, but just who are Frodo and Sam in your analogy?

Or is the reality that you are so desparate now in your campaign, that you are losing so badly that you have no choice but to turn ridiculous?
