They Thought They Were Gods

A BuzzFlash Editorial

In mythology, the Greek Gods dealt harshly with those who thought that they had the power of Gods. That’s what we learned in high school, isn’t it?

We were reminded of that when we re-read the infamous quotation of an unnamed – as always – "senior Bush aide" who boasted to author Ron Suskind:

Would someone ask Speaker Pelosi why, exactly, impeachment is still "off the table"?

It can't be because the public has no stomach for it; what we really have is no stomach for an endless stream of caskets and wounded coming home from Iraq, stretching into the unforeseeable future, all for no greater purpose than salvaging George's inexplicable pride, Dick's dark web of power, and the insatiable lust for overflowing bank accounts that they share with their cronies.

Corporate Media pundits and sellout Democratic personalities are denouncing a return to the Fairness Doctrine standards in broadcasting eliminated by the Reagan Administration. They are falling into a trap set by the Republican Right and the largest corporations in America. Essentially, they are letting Republican political spin set the agenda for "acceptable" political views.

When he announced the commutation of Scooter Libby's 30-month sentence, George W. Bush cited the ways Libby has and will suffer: damage to his reputation, the suffering of his wife and children, large fines, and the "long-lasting" consequences of being a convicted felon.

Subject: Sen. Domenici Latest GOP Stalwart To Break With White House on War

The Demos are going to keep screwing around with This Iraq mess and the repugs are going to steal the ball.

To blow that spin to smithereens
You don't need a big destroyer:
How can they hate Rich so much
When Scooter was his lawyer?

To help the administration make charges not stick
He secretly was leaking to lawyers for Tricky Dick.

But he has parlayed his role back then into our time
As a by-the-book rough guy who's tough on crime.
