Who Are You Gonna Believe, Me or Your Lying Eyes?

In a dramatic and chilling videotape that surfaced a couple of days ago, Der Monkey Fuehrer is shown in a closed circuit video conference wherein person after person warned the Empty Sleevejob about the impending disaster with Hurrican Katrina and the Gulf Coast -- and most importantly, New Orleans -- and the little shit just sat there with that same vacant look that we know so well from the Fahrenheit 9/11 movie.

It's like he just can't process the information. He asked no questions, took no notes, and seemed utterly detached from reality.

And it turns out that Michael Heckuva-Job-Brownie Brown actually did do a heckuva job in issuing warnings about the lack of preparedness. Not that it did any good.

A couple of days after the devastating blow to New Orleans, Baby Doc actually came out and made the statement "nobody could have predicted" that the levees would break down and that the city would be rendered unliveable.

We now know that he was at that meeting and he did get the information. He was there; where was his brain?

Goddammit, how many more lies will it take before everyone gets it?

Listen up, people, he is a fucking liar! Why aren't the same people who were calling for Clinton's scalp when he lied now up in arms over the outright baldfaced hypocritical LIES spewing out of this pathetic pile of notrogenous human waste?

If the Dems can't make this a campaign issue this fall, then they don't deserve to win. If we as a people, as citizens of what used to be universally regarded as the best country on earth, can't rise up and take back our country, then maybe we don't deserve to have it back.

Once again I urge all of you to get active on the local level and the congressional district level and the state level, and work for the election of Democrats who are progressive -- who are, dare I say it, liberal -- and who will do the right thing by impeaching the whole sorry lot of these upstart neocon fascists who have usurped power, emasculated the Constitution, and abrogated our freedoms.

In Washington State, the Democratic caucuses are being held this afternoon. I plan to be at my precinct caucus to actively push resolutions that call for, among other things, making VA Health Care funding mandatory and calling for the impeachment of Bush and Cheney for their appalling record of high crimes and misdemeanors.

The caucuses are democratic government at its most grassroots level. I strongly urge everyone who still cares about this country and who believes, as I do, that it is not too late to save it, to attend your precinct caucuses or other local meetings and push for change. Every state has something similar -- just contact your local Democratic Party and see what you can do.

In the immortal words of President John F. Kennedy, now is the time to ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country.

We are working hard here and I keep saying it over and over and over.

All politics is local.
