29% 29% 29% 29% 29% 29% 29% 29% 29% 29%

Wow! Are we just starting to see the Republican short-sided ones realize that the President and his minions are a bunch of idiots. Incompetance is sometimes hard to recognize. Maybe Americans aren't too sullied by TV news.

In celebration of this new landmark I decided to see if I could find anything else at 29%.

Update: Here is more!!

Welcome to the Terrordome

Wow... How Fast Do You Read!! That's Fast!!

So... I remember some years back having a talk with a buddy about speed reading. He contended that there is a trade off between reading speed and comprehension. I was not so sure. Of course, since neither of us read faster than what would be considered normal (if not below normal), how would we now? Well, maybe its time for me to figure it out. Here are some easy tips.

Baby Steps Towards Dictatorship

Jack Cafferty has been a solid voice for accountability since Republican scandals have hit the
front pages. He has consistently fretted about the danger they pose and why Americans should be outraged. Today, Jack voiced what some liberals have feared.

I don't know about wisdom but you'll get a bit of outrage. We better hope nothing happens to Arlen Specter, the Republican head of the Judiciary Committee, because he might be all that's standing between us and a full blown dictatorship in this country.

No.. We may already be there.

Is it? Is it legal?

Then why did the Justice Department suddenly drop its investigation of the warrantless spying on citizens? Because the NSA said Justice Department lawyers didn't have the necessary security clearance to do the investigation.

Read that sentence again.

A secret government agency has told our Justice Department that it's not allowed to investigate it. And the Justice Department just says okay and drops the whole thing.

And the prosecutors Keep Marching On

Amazingly enough, we are seeing the outcome of the hard work the Justice Department, Federal Inspectors and the various state level prosecutors have done. They deserve our continued thanks for doing the peoples work

Today we hear that Tom Noe plans to change his previous plea of not guilty in the Coingate scandal in Ohio. The HUD Inspector General has opened up an investigation into HUD Secretary Kenneth Jackson. By all accounts, Karl Rove is headed towards an indictment. Libby has been already indicted. Randy Cunningham has just been given a public warning that could lead to a reversal of his plea deal and bring new formal charges for not cooperating with investigators in the DC prostitution scandal. Remember, his plea deal in incumbent on him spilling the beans on everything! The CIA chief and his #3 man, Foggo, resign as bribery and prostitution hits the headlines. Abramoff is tied in with just about every scandal- SunCruise Oceanliners and the mob, the Marianna Islands and forced prostitution/abortions, the New Hampshire election phone jamming scandal and White House links, Coingate in Ohio and the blatant stealing from Native Americans under the guise of a lobbying effort. William Jefferson (a Democrat) is caught red handed with his hand in the cookie jar. FEMA employees currently under investigation for bribery in relation to the Katrina rebuilding effort. The Conditional Provisional Authority, in charge of Federal contracting dollars in Iraq, is headed towards the largest bribe and graft scandal in American history. And there is more! So much more, its almost impossible to remember them all.

We have always known that politics was corrupt. Afterall, power, any power, is a corrupting force. But I got to commend these Bush Republicans. They take cheating to an all new level.
