Condi Must Go

This just in from Democracy for America:

You and I suspected it. Now, ABC News confirms it:

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice chaired repeated White House meetings approving specific torture techniques before they were used -- then lied about it to Congress.

Now Brave New Films put it all together in a "smoking gun" video. That's why, Democracy for America is partnering with True Majority and Brave New Films to launch an aggressive national campaign with a simple message: Condi Must Go.

Watch the video and sign the petition now.

MoDo: How DARE He?

The funny thing about Dowd today, is that her attempt to snark on Obama ("Wonder Boy"? Really?) will get as little traction as everything else that everyone else has attempted, and she knows it - that's why she's so pissed off.

It will take actual substantive issues to derail Obama, just like they did Clinton, and anything short of that just won't work. The lapdog media, every one of them hand-fed by Rove, et al, hasn't SEEN a substantive issue that they haven't been able to ignore for over a decade.

Molly Ivors, of course, says it much better here.

A Crowning Moment of Awesome

Just stumbled over this at YouTube - Someone combined The Dark Knight trailer with Shirley Walker's mad Gothier-than-Goth theme music to Batman: Mask of The Phantasm. I'd turn it up loud if I were you....

Republican Offenders

One of my favorite topics, proves that Republicans Are Evil™ by gleefully listing hundreds of Thug offenders who have been indicted, or more happily, convicted on charges of ranging from rape to bribery, with a goodly number of pedophiles in the mix.

The next time some rightwing mouthbreather claims moral superiority, make sure you have this ready and pick out three or four of these winners and shut them up but good!


Over at Eschaton, Sinfonian pointed me to his ongoing feature, the Florida GOP Police Blotter for many many more examples of Republican malfeasance, misfeasance and nonfeasance!

Prime Minister of Ukraine, MegaBabe.


Damn. She could do a regular policy address in primetime every damn week.

Yulia Volodymyrivna Tymoshenko (Ukrainian: Юлія Володимирівна Тимошенко) (born on November 27, 1960) is a Ukrainian politician and current Prime Minister of Ukraine. She is leader of the All-Ukrainian Union "Fatherland" party and the Yulia Tymoshenko Bloc.
Before becoming Ukraine's first female Prime Minister, Tymoshenko was one of the key leaders of the Orange Revolution. In this period, some Western media publications dubbed her as the "Joan of Arc of the Revolution"...

Depths of narcissism

Atrios : Years later, it's hard to comprehend the depths of the narcissism of people like Berman who obviously see events in the world as nothing more than referendums on their own awesomeness. He and his fellow travelers spent years berating dirty fucking hippies like me for daring to suggest that maybe war in Iraq was not some awesome idea, but instead, you know, bad. And now he wants to claim he opposed it?

It seemed stupid that we would have to argue AGAINST a war of aggression against a smaller country, against an ongoing occupation over a conquered people, against torture, against mercenaires, against war profiteers.

Even in our worst-case scenario - we couldn't see all of this but we argued, wrote, and marched against it to try to stop any of this from coming to pass.

We need to make sure that these people are never seen in public again without the blood on their hands.
