surprise, surprise....



Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman is among several national security experts helping brief Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin on foreign policy issues as she prepares to hit the campaign trail while cramming for a debate with her Democratic opponent, Sen. Joseph R. Biden Jr. (Del.), in less than a month, according to officials from Sen. John McCain's campaign.

Lieberman, who was the 2000 Democratic vice presidential nominee but is now an independent, has helped introduce Palin to officials of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, the leading pro-Israel lobby. In a meeting Tuesday, the day before she delivered her prime-time address at the Republican National Convention here, Palin assured the group of her strong support for Israel, of her desire to see the United States move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and of her opposition to Iran's aspirations to become a nuclear power, according to sources familiar with the meeting.

I'm serious...I think that impeachment is too long and involved...and that undermining the constitution and if we are getting ready to attack Iran without congressional approval, then that is treasonous...am I off base here?..just seems to me that willfully breaking laws merits arrest...

the RW...i just dont support her stance on this war..i believe that the middle of the road approach to politics is not going to work any longer...i am not spewing bile...im trusting my instincts...and actually if you want to know what i really think, the RW would be exhilarated if we nominated Hillary..i believe supporting her for president is a losing proposition and you are attempting to terrorize me into not speaking my truth..if i learned anything over the past 6 years..it is to speak my truth..lieberman is a democrat and i cant stand him....and while we're at it, while i believe that the 2000 election was stolen and while i respect Nader, i still blame him partially for this mess we're in...not a popular opinion but it is my opinion...
i accept my role in all of this is to share info with others...usually linked info..people who dont come here or read anything..the clerk at the corner store..my republican senior aunt..the twenty somethings in my life...i dont need to make their decisions for them, i trust with enough accurate info, they'll step to the plate...
the rw have their talking points down....my talking points keep evolving as i grow...i would hope the same for you...one thing for sure...im not gonna shut up, lock step, or vote for anyone i dont believe in..

I want them all tried...and found guilty...and ordered to pay like any other embezzler...i want all of their offshore accounts seized...and the bunkers where cheney is hiding our money unsealed...I dont only want them to go to jail I want them to pay us back...all of them...Halliburton, Bechtel, and the rest of them...I'd like to know who they are...and what corporations they hide behind...Id like to know where the 2 trillion the pentagon cant find is lurking....I want our money back...

I woke up Tuesday smiling and realizing that the trainwreck which is about to happen to this administration is inevitable...the speech in Cleveland hit the ball out of the park..and then another pitiful press conference on Tuesday..cant tell you why i feel so confident that the momentum has reached sufficient speed...that was the point of NO return..
truly makes me giggly to think of the self humiliation this administrations supporters must endure to spin any thing positive about a bold faced liar ..knowing that they will have to eat those words one day...i cant tell you why the knowingness that they are toast makes me so happy....

up until now we've been REACTING to a most despicable situation...we havent had time to think about how this mess can get fixed..weve been busy just trying to figure out what was happening and what we could do to stop it...
whats the vision?..it better be smart and interesting and genuine,or its not gonna work...we're suspicious now and a lot wiser..dinos are history...a political cult created an international and domestic nightmare for every american..and that group is on their way out..i know that...i knew it Tuesday..its been a little over 6 months since Camp Crawford and Katrina, and you all know that we were in the twilight zone of a silent and unquestioning media and a dummied down citizentry..that has changed .er, is changing....now what?.....even a few months ago there was a despair here that has lifted..

i think we've moved along enough to start addressing how to fix this horrible mess...whatever happened with Bunny Greenstreet..maybe we could put her back to work stopping halliburtons no bid contracts?...these guys and gal are gonna get tried for war crimes, torture and breaking the geneva conventions among other things...and more..i bet...maybe we could try to get some of our money back from them?

its been difficult to think about how to fix the things that we've been trying to prevent from happening..unfortunately, we didnt succed in preventing the madness but we sure as hell have to acknowledge that we've got problems now...maybe we should start by telling the world that we are sorry?...
