Abramoff and the Gottis

Check out my Daily KOS post on breaking news regarding Tom DeLay's good friend, Jack Abramoff, and his ties to mafioso types arrested today for murdeing Abramoff's business partner. If only there was a male prostitute "reporter" involved in this, maybe the media would pay attention.

Anybody know what they were launching from Vandenburg last night?

For those of you who say that Democrats are a spineless bunch with no ideas, I dare you to read this energy speech by Sen. Barack Obama, and then come back here and comment on how much Democrats suck.
Today I’d like to give you another example of a deal that Washington could make with Detroit. We’d start by raising the fuel economy standards in this country by 3% a year over the next fifteen years. But to help our auto industry make the transition – to give them the competitive edge they need against their foreign counterparts – we’d pay for part of the biggest costs they face today: retiree health care. Right now, health care costs represent $1,500 of the price of every GM car that’s made. By picking up part of the tab for the health care costs of their retirees, we’d
be lifting a huge burden off the auto industry so that they’ll invest in the technology that will finally reduce America’s dependence on foreign oil.
Sounds like a good idea to me. And I know it's something I'll never hear out of George Bush's mouth.

I've been posting Hurricane Katrina related Bush treason over at the Bush Treason blog. Apparently the facade has been ripped off the Republican "Christianity." Perhaps the best version of that I heard lately wasn't even Katrina related. It was on the Daily show Tuesday night in a bit called Heavy Vetting. At about 2:12, Stewart, after going after some pretty lame ass Democrats, plays Oklahoma Senator Tom Coburn's tearful plea for less divisiveness and mindless partisanship which is "almost hateful." Right. He then quotes Coburn's devisive and hateful statements from the past:
"The Gay community is the greatest threat to our freedom that we face today." -- Sen. Tom Coburn (R) Oklahoma, Spring 2004

"I favor the death penalty for abortionists." -- Sen. Tom Coburn (R) Oklahoma, July 9, 2004
If it weren't for John Stewart for the last five years, I'd be as crazy as Tom Coburn.

Check out the latest great google bomb for the word asshole. Great song by Jim's Big Ego.

Finally, my Asia travel agent friend and client, Anne Leveque, is in Hainan Provence China. She's an Asian Travel specialist who visits everywhere she sends people. So, she's vacationing in the Oriental Hawaii and blogging her adventures on Hainan Island on her South Pacific, Hawaii, and Asia travel blog.
