C: every other person who still votes Republican.

Oh gawd. That picture of McCain hugging Bush nearly made me vomit!

Chris: good point. They couldn't do it withouth the little people.

Sis: I knew you'd love it.

Okay, it's a little like choosing which Staphylococcus variety you'd like in your wound, and I'm gonna add C: my own Sen. Dick Lugar, even though he's an also-ran (yet again, Dick!), for using his stature as the Senate's eminence gris on foreign policy to sort of mumble vague warnings about Iraq into his shirt before voting for the war resolution, then when it all turned to shit mumbling something about having mumbled a vague warning earlier. But he's a piker. Powell, for doing photo-ops at Crawford in November 2000, and for not resigning in early 2001 when a) he was put under Cheney's thumb and b) the "Hey, let's take our hands off the handlebars and see where we go!" Middle East policy was announced.

Hi Riley: I forgot about the abdication of a Middle East policy. That would have been a good time to alert the country of the insanity at our helm. Powell was probably in savior mode at the time, thinking he could get it all back on track if he hung around. By the time they handed him the anthrax and pointed him to his seat at the UN, he didn't have enough integrity left to do the right thing and resign.

Colin Powell takes the cake for me.

Colin Powell. I've got a book called War in a Time of Peace by David Halberstom that explains why.

Colin Powell. Hands down.

McCain gets to be understudy in the B-cast of this creepy MacBeth rewrite.

When you open the competition for the title of Miss Congeniality in Tragic and Despicable Republican contest, I want to nominate Lincoln Chafee.

He comes so close, so often, to being wholly despicable, but never makes it to the finals. Generally likeable, unwilling to offend his party by actually taking a principled stand, Chafee crosses the aisle to chat with--but never date--Senators with spines.

Now his own party talks about replacing him. How tragic.

On the plus side, he can almost cry on cue (as we saw during the Bolton nomination process).

On the plus side, he can almost cry on cue (as we saw during the Bolton nomination process).

Always a plus for an ineffective moderate Republican. You want to lock up that pity vote. The Chaffees of the world crack me up. Why don't they fight back with some imagination? What do they have to lose?

How can John "black baby" McCain even stand to be in the same F*ckin state as Bush let alone "hug it out"....I lost what little respect I had for McCain...as for Powell...he and Condi have done more to promote the "uncle tom" image than anything else. I would like to see a McCain/Powell ticket in 2008...go dems!

  • "[O]ur time, our energy, should be spent in educating, agitating, organizing our fellow citizens in the workplace, in the neighborhood, in the schools. Our objective should be to build, painstakingly, patiently but energetically, a movement that, when it reaches a certain critical mass, would shake whoever is in the White House, in Congress, into changing national policy on matters of war and social justice."


  • "True religion will not let us fall asleep in the comfort of our freedom. Love thy neighbor is not a piece of advice, it's a command. ...

    God, my friends, is with the poor and God is with us, if we are with them. This is not a burden, this is an adventure."

    Mr. President, we love America, not because of all of us have seen the beauty all the time.

    But we believed if we kept on working, if we kept on marching, if we kept on voting, if we kept on believing, we would make America beautiful for everybody.
