Life In These United States

One detainee was killed by the CIA, by being exposed naked to freezing cold temperatures overnight. Hey, this is America. We do this kind of thing now.
- Andrew Sullivan

We know how all this happened. It was Joe Wilson out there trying to destroy the Iraq war, the Iraq policy, undermine the presidency and the White House simply trying to defend its policy…This guy is a cup and saucer short of a full place setting, folks. The elevator doesn't go to the top floor. He's a publicity whore.
- Rush Limbaugh

At age ten the madam put the child in a cage with a bear trained to couple with young girls so the girls would be frigid and not fall in love with their patrons. They fed her through the bars and aroused the bear with a stick when it seemed to lose interest.
- passage from Scooter Libby's 1996 novel, The Apprentice

"Naturally the common people don't want war but after all, it is the leaders of a country who determines policy , and it is always a simple matter to drag people along whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, of a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to do the bidding of the leaders. It is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for a lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in every country."

No- this quote was not lifted from a page in the Neocon play book.

It is courtesy of Herman Goering during the Nuremberg Trials. Scary stuff- then and now. I hope the Plame-Gate is the beginning of the end to the darkest days of our Country.

Me too, Cleetus.

Now even the rest of the slack-jawed yokels have to admit something smells rotten in Texas, at least if the polls are any indication.

And if you've ever been polled...
