The Sinking Ship and the Rats

In a preview of coming attractions, certain neoconservative voices are starting to distance themselves or flat out jump from the foreign policy atrocity that is the Bush Administration, and increasingly important parts of the military are voicing demands for Rumsfeld to go, and the GOP's troubles are just beginning. One significant miscalculation I'm a little embarrassed to be seeing so late is how do folks plan to remain in power in a democracy when they serve 5% and screw 95% of the population?

Flat out flim-flamming another 46+%? Completely rigging the elections?

Can't speak to the rigging yet, though the concept is terrifying. Regarding the flim-flamming program with guns, god, abortion, homophobia, and boatloads of fear, well, it appears to be showing some weakness.

How does it go about fooling some of the people some of the time, some of the people all of the time, all of the people all of the time, or none of the people at any time? At any rate, the boat may be taking on water. The disillusioned faithful are finding it difficult to escape the writing on the wall.

Time wounds all heals. Those on a collision course with reality do eventually lose.

If "Electoral Vote" turns out to be right, this could be as good as the resignation of Nixon.

The people speak!!!!!!!!!!

It will certainly be interesting to see how W deals with actual Congressional oversight ;-)

It's kind of funny to see all these folks who were pushing for the war four years ago now trying to distance themselves by various means.

Apparently they are hoping that by appearing to seem "contrary" now, everyone will forget how they enabled the administration so often in the past ... and if we, as a people, do forget, we'll just allow them to enable a series of poor decisions ini the future.
