Yes, please.


This so works for me:

Rice considering VP run?

Steve Clemons reports that this morning, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice attended Grover Norquist’s weekly conservative “powerhouse gathering” at Americans for Tax Reform. Although Rice denied running for office was part of her “political future,” one GOP operative was skeptical, noting that the only reason high-ranking officials go to the right-wing meeting is to “secure” their political positions:

Someone like Condi Rice doesn’t go to Grover Norquist’s den to talk about the Annapolis Middle East peace process. She’s going to secure her future in Republican politics and to position herself as a ‘potential’ VP candidate on the McCain ticket.


Oh, dear God, yes, let this come to pass. Because nothing could possibly make a John McCain presidency more appealing to hard-core conservatives than a black, female VP whose stunning incompetence killed 3,000 Americans.

Yeah, that's my fantasy ticket right there.

I thought she wanted to run the NFL. From that to Veep? What a come down.

Typo there, CC. That's 4,000 Americans now.
And if Condi-as-VP isn't the most glaring example of balanacing the ticket, I don't know what is.
"Hey guys, look! We've got Barack and Hillary rolled into one! And she won't be in charge! Isn't that great!"

I'm quite sure CC was referring to the 3,000 who died on 9/11. The 4,000 in Iraq is apparently a bonus ...

CC said...

... at no extra charge.

And let's not forget the hundreds of thousands of dead Iraqis. Good God, that woman is bathing in blood.

I was hoping by this time that American liberals, like the American Right decided in the 60's, that it was probably time for a few strategic assassinations, but I've given that up. They're lambs to the slaughter, now.

"probably time for a few strategic assassinations"

one, because ugh, and two, because a few wouldn't do it anyway.

Liberals aren't going to go about murdering people. At least not today's liberals and at least not yet. The large majority of people in the US regardless of their political ideology are peace loving in their personal lives and most haven't been personally impacted by the war, however loud they might bitch about it.

Paying $4 for a gallon of gas isn't going to cut it. Now, if Bush had called for a draft back in 03 he'da been dangling from a lamppost by now. But Rove was a little too slick for that.

You won't see anything major until Americans start actually suffering in a way that's more than "OMG My starbucks is $12 today?"

But the fact that libs aren't yet going around murdering conservatives connected to the war doesn't mean however, that a very bloody civil war isn't brewing.

Even a people as cowardly as contemporary Americans ( and keep in mind these are my countrymen I'm talking about) will only take so much before they come out swinging. Bush knows this or at least his handlers do, hence the sudden desperate need for insurrection provisions in American law ( Public law 109-364 ) when there hasn't been a real insurrection since the civil war. Were almost at the flashpoint of the powder keg. It's not going to take too much more to set it off.

I'm interested in the fireworks that will occur if McSame wins the election... especially if it's another election like 2000 or 2004. Or even better if Nader jumps back in.

If Obama wins the election things might get turned around for a bit before his assassination at the hands of the racist neo-cons. But if that lying prat Hillary wins we'll have 4 years of Democrats fucking things up because their leadership is power hungry bitch.

By my calculations by 2012 the country will be tired enough of this bullshit that a third party candidate will actually stand a chance for the first time in many moons. Then perhaps we can see some real change. Because the only time real change actually happens is when you hit rock bottom. I figure that will happen around the 2010 midterms.
