Progressive Democrat Newsletter Issue 176

Even Bush is sick of the Iraq fiasco...he has been mumbling about pulling out troops and about a "time horizon"...yes, "HORIZON," not a timeline, for the withdrawal of US troops from Iraq. Don't know about you, but I have never heard anyone talk about "time horizons" before. Makes me think of an event horizon around a black hole...which is an ominous comparison.

Remember, though, Bush's shifting to withdrawal is not by any choice of his. The Iraq government has told him in no uncertain terms that we have outlived our welcome and they do not want us there permanently.

But wait...McCain seems behind here. He isn't talking horizons. His campaign is declaring war on Muslims. That's right...one of his swiftboat wing nuts, in an official campaign conference call, claimed that "the Muslims" have declared that Americans must kneel or be killed and John McCain refuses to kneel. I'd like to hear where he gets the ideas that "the Muslims" have declared this. As far as I know, no one alive today can speak for all Muslims. McCain clearly wants to carry on Bush's Crusade another 50, 100 years. He has said so several times.

And speaking of McCain, here's a great picture from Georgia Women Vote:

Meanwhile, in San Francisco there is a ballot initiative to create a lasting memorial to the George W. Bush presidency: they want to rename the Oceanside Water Pollution Control Plant the George W Bush Sewage Plant.

From engel's diary...

The Following Users Have Recommended This Diary:
bsavage
canadian gal
pan230oh
catfish2

Four recs. That's it. And canadian gal said she was only rec'ing to try and get engel to write more. Outside of that, you've got bsavage (last diary: Barack Obama the Staff Blamer), pan230oh (User page: Committed to electing Hillary Clinton the 44th President of the United States. - Ask me Why!) and catfish2 (last diary: Imus was fired, but Obama raises $$ to 'Ho' Routine).

Clearly it's a slow day here today.

No Indiana?

I guess we're not worthy *sniff*

Used to cover it

I covered Indiana for awhile. Didn't seem to get much readership. Of course if I had the time, I would be doing all 50 states!
