Red Idaho Potatoes

I wonder what measures a devoted Idaho Bushie will use to ensure a twitch-free conscience when the truth is no longer avoidable? Is it possible that by ignoring it for so long, they have lost the ability of discernment?

Maybe they’ll adopt one of George’s methods; a combination of outright lies with constant reminders that he is “the decider.” Let’s call that man-stipulation.

Who else but George would use a pass-off reverse flip-flop to take credit for the discovery that skin cells can be used in stem cell research? And all because of his refusal to allow embryonic stem cell research...who’d a thunk it?

White House responses to accusations of torture and the Abu-Ghraib situation are known as falseHOODS.

Ever worry about the unprecedented secrecy of this administration and rewriting of history? The new rule is if truth has been successfully hidden before some nosy traitor reveals it (e.g., executive privilege for all, including the plumber), who’s to say Bush’s pants are on fire? Certainly not the plumber; he’d have to do his work all over again.

Oh, and about those 20,000 U.S. troops found with combat brain injuries not included in the Pentagon tally of 30,327 total wounded–I think they’ve been concealed in the same place as the 6,256 active and retired vets who committed suicide in 2005. CBS collected data from 45 states to get this number after the Department of Defense response was “only” 2,200 suicides by active duty vets between 1995 and 2007. See

In 7 years, this administration has gone from “compassionate conservatism” to “pervasive perversion.”
