What Are We Going To Do About...

that new little thingy Bushco and friends are trying to get done before they leave office regarding a new AUMF for the GWOT?

It's a typical fear-mongering, national security baiting mess. The Dems are totally likely to cave into this as usual, and it provides complete and total cover for Bushco to cover up all their messes, to continue the disaster of Gitmo and the dog and pony show trials, and sets the stage for an invasion or at least a heavy bombing of Iran.

Somehow, it would be nice to figure out a way to convince the Dems that we the people, have their back and that no matter what Bushco says, WE GET IT! That they will NOT lose their seats if they vote this down, but that if they vote in favor - it could cost them.

It seems that letter writing and email sending and phone calls do no good. What does it take for our Congresscritters to understand they need to be responsive to their constitutents.

Of course the best message is to 'un-elect' some of them. Blue America has been doing some of that - witness Donna Edwards unseating Ed Wynn - a blue dog if there ever was one.

We have to be unafraid to un-elect even Dems if they don't to the job. Don't buy into the crap about seniority and how they are powerful so that's more important than just about anything else.

We need to hold these politicians accountable - including the likes of Pelosi, Reid, Hoyer, Rockefeller, and yes, Barack Obama. But just how to go about doing that - I'm at a total loss here.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Why Did Obama Pick Biden?

I was really sad at first when I heard that Biden was the VP pick. He's been in Washington too long. He really isn't "change". He attacked Obama pretty hard during the primaries (giving McSlime plenty of stuff to throw at him).

But then I thought - no - Obama needs an attack dog. And Biden is it. He has never pulled his punches (even when he would have been better served to have kept quiet). He says what he thinks. He doesn't waffle. And he enjoys going toe-to-toe with an opponent. Perfect!

He adds the foreign policy experience Obama supposedly lacks. And hewill also tell Obama what he needs to hear - whether he likes it or not.

I'm looking forward to seeing Biden on all the Sunday bobblehead shows and hearing him blast McSlime for all the idiotic crap, lies, smears and other smelly stuff coming out of that campaign as of late.

Go! Biden!!
