the flag-burning amendment is nigh.

* so the flag-burning amendment is nigh. i kinda hope it passes, and the dems can proudly overturn it when they are back in charge, and it will remind everyone of these dark, dark days and be a perma-stain on the repugs

* bradblog is still doing a bang-up job covering the busby election. Velvet Revolution is running a petition:
"Demand That The Busby-Bilbray Election Results In CA-50 Be 100% Hand Counted To Ensure That The Results Are Accurate In Light Of Improper Procedures On Diebold Machines Used In The Election"
* don:
"1) It is still telling at this point that despite rumblings early on in this affair that there is still no indication of Ash, Leopold, or TruthOut being served papers for libel"
* nydn:
" "Rita's (Cosby) nice," Olbermann wrote to a fan from his MSNBC E-mail account, "but dumber than a suitcase of rocks." Yesterday Cosby retorted: "Keith got it wrong. I'm not that nice.""
hysterical. (don thinks there's more to it)

* flashback: this from wapo, october 24 02:
""They are politicizing intelligence, no question about it," said Vincent M. Cannistraro, a former CIA counterterrorism chief. "And they are undertaking a campaign to get George Tenet [the director of central intelligence] fired because they can't get him to say what they want on Iraq."
6 weeks later he was 'slam-dunking' (see here for more pre-invasion debunking of 'intelligence')

yep, tenet was on that list i destroyed (i believe i mentioned in a comment on another thread here)...i'd dig recreating it but at this point in time, i'm too demoralised and depressed over everything political. still reading though and yeah, i imagine i'm a masochist for doing so (never had masochistic leanings before 12/2000).

Yup, and the Dems reversing that flag burning ammendment will give us the chance to see which side our DLC corporate whore senator Dianne Feinstein is on who helped sponsor this mess, and perhaps have a means to show her as the part of round 2 purge (purging DLC Dems after we purge Republicans) of restoring *people* represenative democracy!

rimone - im suer its a very long list.

calipendence: Feinstein sponsored the bill? EGADS!

Not sure if this is the same bill or not, but she and Hatch teamed up for this gem that was on the Senate Floor in March! That DINO bitch has me yelling "Wilma!" already now! And people wonder why I voted for Fernald last week! :(

I vote that the day this thing passes, we all find a huge burning flag animated gif and we feature it on the front web page of people's sites EVERYWHERE! What are they going to do, ban animated gifs of flags burning too? If they go there, then I wonder how many video games will have to be pulled of the shelves, etc. Idiots!

Well, The Bush family is bad enough to have the likes of the daughters of Jeb and Dubya... Well it looks like Bilbray's kids come from the same cloth! Check out this page on Wonkette! Come on you kid "town drunks". Aren't you supposed to be saving up that beer money to be paying your out-of-state tuition instead?
