       Video: Stephen Colberts Rips Bush at WH Correspondants Dinner.

Stephen Colbert, formerly of The Daily Show, and now with his own show The Colbert Report, spoke at the White House Correspondants Dinner (How were they stupid enough to let him in there?) You know the one Where Bush and his double did some schtick, that the press fell over themselves to report. Not much reporting about Colbert's Speech in which he ripped Bush a new one. Live, right in front of the monkey
himself. I would have liked to have been there to see the look on his face. Undoubtedly Bush had no idea who Colbert was. He knows now. Here it is Stephen Colbert, Take it away.

Thats All republicans. Anyone got a problem with that????

       News: Mission Accomplished Redux, Republicans Screw Troops Again, Bush/Hitler Comparison

Back In The Days of Mission Accomplished
We're in here because of Bush

NEW YORK Monday marks the third anniversary of President Bush’s jet landing on the aircraft carrier Abraham Lincoln and his speech declaring major fighting in Iraq over, all in front of a giant “Mission Accomplished” banner.
At the time, it was heralded by the mainstream media as a fitting moment of triumph. "He won the war," boomed MSNBC's Chris Matthews. "He was an effective commander. Everybody recognizes that, I believe, except a few critics."
Since then, it has become -- during three more years of death and war -- a symbol of American hubris and setbacks in Iraq. Today it is often lampooned as a tragic “photo op,”

Senate Republicans Screw Troops Yet Again

Out of the litany of hypocrisy we have seen from Republicans in the last five years, perhaps the most galling is their contrived support-the-troops rhetoric, apparently designed to mask how they consistently screw over active military and Veterans at ever turn.

The latest smackdown came this week when Senate Republicans voted to take $1.9 billion from President Bush's funding request for the Iraq war and use that money to boost border security. S.Amdt. 3594, sponsored by Senator Judd Gregg (R-NH) was intended to pay for new aircraft, patrol boats, and land vehicles and to bolster checkpoints and a fence along the U.S.-Mexico border crossing near San Diego. The problem and the bald-faced hypocrisy comes in Gregg's amendment, which passed 59-39, funding border security by grabbing money that would have provided body armor, tools to defeat improvised explosive devices for troops in Iraq and Afghanistan and money for training the Iraqi security forces. This was an amazing stance for the GOP leadership, given their ongoing assertions that the war should be our highest national priority and their tendency to quickly jump any Democrat who they can even remotely claim doesn't "support the troops." "Isn't it interesting, when it comes down to these choices, so many on the Republican side of the aisle say: Now we are going to be fiscal conservatives, fiscal conservatives at the expense of our soldiers. It is plain wrong,"

Bush-Hitler Comparisons Part 1.

"We had our Hitler, now you have yours."

What follows is a comparison between Hitler’s rise to dictatorial power in 1930’s Germany and the Bush administration’s rise to dictatorial power in America today, focusing on the role “religion” and “patriotism” played in both. It is based largely on the psychological study of Hitler commissioned by the United States government during WWII and undertaken by a team of people including psychologist Walter C. Langer in 1942-43. It was published in 1972 as a book titled "The Mind of Adolph Hitler" by Walter C. Langer.

56 clergy members charge pulpits used for 'electioneering'

Two complaints filed with the tax agency say that the large Columbus-area churches, active in President Bush's narrow Ohio win in 2004, violated their tax-exempt status by pushing the candidacy of J. Kenneth Blackwell, the secretary of state and favored candidate of Ohio's religious right.
The clergy members said the churches improperly held political activities and allowed Republican organizations to use their facilities.
The goal of the challenge is "for these churches to stop acting like electioneering organizations," said the Rev. Eric Williams, pastor of North Congregational United Church of Christ. "I don't want to harm or demonize these churches. I want these churches to act legally."
