Déjà Vu All Over Again
Maybe it's just me, but I feel like there's a certain consistency in the Cheney/Shrub administration...consistent incompetence in just about everything except "awarding" money by the steam-shovel load to their political supporters. For instance, reading the latest news about war veterans shafted by Mr. Five-Deferments-in-Chief and his Lieutenant boy TANG-pilot is to be expected. Think about it: New Orleans was and is left to fend for itself, despite criminal negligence; in 2001 they likewise gave California the shaft during a fake energy crisis designed to fill campaign contributor Enron's coffers (and that money went SOMEWHERE, despite Enron's biting the dust...I wonder if they've checked Big Time's various bank accounts), also in 2001 they let out a collective yawn when told about bin Laden's plans to attack the US...the WMD snipe-hunt would be farcical if not so unbelievably tragic, they've botched the invasion of a country that not only wasn't threatening us, but a country that makes the mess in New Orleans actually look managable in contrast...
Why is anyone surprised?
My only question is whether it's a matter of stupidity or mendacity...and neither one's a pretty picture:
