Iran. Bad.

* NYT:
" Some senior Bush administration officials and top Republican lawmakers are voicing anger that American spy agencies have not issued more ominous warnings about the threats that they say Iran presents to the United States."
read it. your blood will boil.

* trex:
"Each night before I go to bed, I say a little prayer that the Democrats not only take back the House in November, but the Senate, too. (Subpoena Powers, ACTIVATE!!) I want to see the legislative branch completely in Democrat hands and leading an accountability bloodbath. A blizzard of subpoenas, Freedom of Information Act requests, the disclosure of the minutes of Cheney’s meetings with the Oil Barons who wrote our Energy Policy, and on and on. No more illegal wiretaps, no more free rides for K Streeters and golf trips to Scotland. Oh, yes. Know this. Once we win these elections, the next two years in DC are going to make the Clinton impeachment look like the Teddy Bears’ Motherfucking Picnic.

And I’m going to be right there in the front row, laughing like a drain. Hell, I might even get myself cable TV again, so I can relish every minute of the Republicans’ long, agonizing fall on C-Span. Let’s make a date to watch it together, shall we? What kind of popcorn do you like best?"
if the dems don't win the House, I think i'll die.

same here--then again, i have 3 more years of residency until i'm allowed to apply for UK citizenship. i realise that it's only a little bit better here re: freedoms &c but AFAIC, the perks totally outweigh the part about being American. and the last six years over two continents and the political construct that is the UK have made me totally ashamed to admit i'm from the States.

ps, if i find some sucker, whoops, i mean if i find some very nice British dude to marry me, i may apply for citizenship in like another 6 months.

just sayin' :-)

Oh, that's just FINE, then . . .

Go right ahead, Rimone. Just make sure you pick one who has a big house with lots of guest rooms!!

. . . I can see it all now, as the members of the GBS straggle in, bone weary of this madness, and fall in a heap on your new doorstep . . .
