Subtle workings, On the road to Dictatorship?

The subtle workings of the elites, and special interests continue.

CNN continues, for instance, to allow Administration shills to spout all sorts of nonsense that has the effect of dis-ing our Democratic way of life.

For instance, they had the Transportation Secretary on this morning, (12/08/07) prattling on about the "Bridge to Nowhere", and other Congressional earmarks, putting the blame all on Congress.

Never mentioned was that "the Decider", could have used his infamous Veto power to block these things. But, of course, he did not.

Too Political?

And, of course, they continue to attempt to resurrect defeated and discredited figures, such as Newt Gingrich, who blame "the bureaucracy" for these problems. Exclusively.

Hey, how about that "Unitary Executive" idea, huh?

Can Obama really win?

Is this yet another case of Democrats snatching defeat from the jaws of victory?

Is "America" really ready for a mixed race President? Are there really enough people, who will actually vote, that will not have a visceral, racist, reaction at the polls, behind that curtain?

Will the Democrats and particularly Senator Obama, have what it takes to counter, forcefully, the sure to come Swift Boat tactics, and worse, that are sure to spew forth? Can they really counter the hounds of hell that the Neo-Cons will unleash?

Oh, well, it seems inevitable, now that Senator Clinton has self destructed, that Senator Obama will gain the nomination. Senator Clinton, sadly lost my support with the "Bosnia fabrication". After her statement about the assassination of Bobby Kennedy, any chance of her gaining the second spot on the ticket has evaporated.

Senator Obama would do well to select a well respected, middle of the road, white female to be his running mate. But not Nancy Pelosi, no way, no how. Or, perhaps, a middle of the road southern male. But not John Edwards.

Like treating a case of the clap (Gonorrhea) with a hammer?

Dawned on me, today, that the efforts to "win" in Iraq, as the current Administration, and its enablers, are doing, is like trying to treat a case of the clap (Gonorrhea) with a hammer.

A nice visual image, eh? But a good analogy, I think.

To further envision the thinking of these disturbed indivuduals, let me relate a "joke" told to me years ago.

When I was younger, a strident Right Wind, sorry, Wing, true believer was fond of images and jokes of a rather odd nature. Here's one:

"How do you cure a case of the "crabs"? Simple, you shave half your pubic area, squirt lighter fluid on the other half and set it on fire. When the crabs run away, stab them with an ice pick."

That, my friends, is a true story. And another illustration of the "neo-con mind".

Marching to the same drummer

The Bush Administration, and it's neo-con nut cases, are nothing, if not predicatable.

It's hard to tell if they are really trying to con the American people, yet again, with their drum beating and cooked "intelligence" on these weapons, supposedly manufactured in Iran, or if they are simply trying to "gin up" their courage, to strike or invade Iran.

You know, kind of like the school yard bully who keeps telling you his is gonna kick your ass, but is afraid to, cause he might be seen to be the bully that he is.

So, instead, he just keeps insulting you and making public accusations, until, at last, he is convinced that enough people will stand by and watch, while he does his nasty deed.

The real reason they used those anonymouse military talking heads to present their "evidence" is to distance themselves, even further, so that, should it become clear that Iran is not involved, at the "highest levels" in the supply of these weapons, they will be in the clear.

Even military leaders are not convinced that Iran is involved "at the highest levels".

In any event, why is that a justification for a strike at Iran? It's just plain stupid.
