While you wait

Is Commander Guy's sinister sidekick suffering from vascular dementia or is he sliding into paranoid schizophrenia? Is he simply so sure of himself that he offers an excuse so laughably flimsy for refusing to turn over documents as claiming he isn't part of the Executive Branch? Is he trying to point out the impotence of the Public when it comes to taking a renegade administration to task? Maybe it's both. Maybe he's the head of a new branch that makes the other three branches subordinate: Halliburton, but with Cheney's perennial contempt for being asked what the hell he's doing by people with the constitutional right to ask it, all avenues of speculation lead to comedy of one sort or another.

But while we're waiting to see whether his diseased heart will last as long as this diseased administration and wondering whether we or the Shadow will ever know what evil lurked there, we can entertain ourselves with the documentation of decades of secrets about CIA murders, assassinations, thefts, burglaries, illegal wiretapping, kidnapping, infiltration and surveillance galore. It seems that all the things we hippies, subversives, conspiracy theorists and leftist, pinko paranoids once said the government was doing were pretty much true and more like understatement than hyperbole. It's all due to come out next week when the CIA is planning at long last to air enough dirty laundry to stink up the solar system.

I will try to avoid smirking while we read about it; while the remaining true believers try to think of excuses. I'll try not to say I told you so and I will try not to get the dry heaves this coming Independence day when we go through the annual rituals, ceremonies and parades of self praise. I will recall, through the rockets' red glare that people are suffering and dying while yet another generation of evil men sit on the truth and tell lies.

I sometimes chuckle when I see your "evil incarnate" label. I don't chuckle about it when you're writing about Cheney. He's an evil, evil man.

I saw a photo in the paper today of the smirking chimp getting ready to take a bike ride - must be nice. Anyway, he was wearing runner's socks, embroidered with the Presidential Seal. Of course he's entitled to do that, but it made me sick.

Yep, the chimp has a great time taking care of his health at the expense of everyone else in the world. He gets plenty of sleep too, I hear.

Good summary post of multiple subjects. As far as conspiracies, I think we have a huge one in the making and much of what is going on in government is covering it up.

Bush/Cheney must have an ultra secret agenda in Iraq to continue to stand so tough against the wall of protest and resistance in America and the disasterous poll numbers. What the hell are they really up to? Each knows they will never be a part of this government again and must achieve this secret goal before the next election.

Bottom line, I really think the worst is yet to come and I really have no sympathy for Americans who are just going to stand idly by and let it happen - just as they have so far.

I used to laugh at the conspiracy guys who imagined some shadowy cabal who ran the world.

Now I'm not so sure. Whatever their goal is, it involves empire and oil and all the rest is icing on the turd.
