BLAME CANADA: Our progressive neighbors to the north, Canada, officially made same sex unions legal in all provinces yesterday. Down here in the Divided States of America, we had our worthless, warmongering president on national television once again lying to the people about the war in Iraq. The defining and delusional moment came when Dubya tied the insurgency in Iraq to the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. What a slap in the face to all those who died that day, and to the soldiers sent to fight an illegal war. Is anyone still buying his bullshit? Apparently not as many, since his approval numbers are in the toilet (can we get that courtesy flush now?) I say we impeach the motherfucker and try to right this sinking ship of a country. How can we survive three more years of this hateful, stupid man and his lies? At least Donald "Rummy" Rumsfeld has gotten in touch with reality. He said we'd still be in Iraq ten years from now and it might take more than a decade to end the insurgency. Not to mention, we've got a Supreme Court tottering on the brink of becoming the tool of the Christian right zealots, and can't seem to make up their minds if Ten Commandment displays should be allowed in courthouses (they shouldn't!), but are willing to pervert the eminent domain law allowing more fat cat developers and greedy governments to seize private property. Although Hillary Clinton wouldn't be my first choice for president, I say bring her on. In the meantime, Canada looks better and better every day.
