POLITICS: BA HUMBUG
No reason to post this picture other than they're nice chaps :-)
I won't sit out elections; I'll vote, and I'll vote for Repubs, even the spineless ones if that's my choice. But is it any wonder politics turns some of us off?
In no particular order ...
8 Clinton people undermining national security and selling off secrets again
8 GENERAL POLITICS
The views expressed by retired military leaders Maj. Gen. John Batiste, Maj. Gen. John Riggs, Gen. Anthony Zinni, Maj. Gen. Charles Swannack, Maj. Gen. Paul Eaton, and Lt. Gen. Gregory Newbold that Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld should resign may not have been coordinated, per se. But the generals in question in fact speak often to each other, and some are even coordinating political activities with colleagues here in the United States, according to Pentagon sources.
Some, in fact, are involved in a very quiet group of retired military officers who are behind a "Draft Colin Powell" effort, to see him run for the Presidency in 2008. The operation is well funded, say sources familiar with the group, to the point that they are regularly polling the public on issues and even ticket makeup for a Powell run.
"They more often than not have him [Powell] running as a Republican, so the polling is almost exclusively with other Republicans on the ticket, and almost always with Powell on the top of the ticket," says a source who has seen sampling from the polling.
8 MSM: Mission Accomplished?
The Republicans in the House are useless. The Senate Republicans are smart to drag moral values into the dialogue, but will it work if it is (correctly) perceived as pandering? And as for we right-of-center bloggers, well, I see nothing close to the energy we all displayed in 2004.
So, maybe this is it. It is over. Cancel the election. Give Nancy and Harry the gavels. The MSM has won.
