Two GOP one Dem all crooks, Double Take on Hayden, Net Fraud, Bill O'Reilly and other assorted nuts and Hot Monkey Sex.

The House Committee on Standards of Official Conduct or "ethics" committee finally decided to get off it's butt and do what it's supposed to be doing.

The ethics committee is going after 2 Republicans and 1 Democrat. I'd like to think this is just a start. The Republicans are Reps. Robert W. Ney (R-Ohio) and Randy "Duke" Cunningham (R-Calif.). We all know about Cunningham and his latest involvement in WatergateGate, Ney has been playing footsie with Abramoff. But what do you expect from Republicans.

We should certainly expect more from our Democrats, William Jefferson (D-La.) should, but says he won't resign. He about to be indicted for conspiracy. bribery and misuse of Katrina funds. It looks like the real deal. He won't be missed.

On the heels of the domestic spying scandal, lawmakers are taking a second look at Air Force Gen. Michael V. Hayden, who promoted and is defending the plan. He'll be confirmed, unless the domestic spying story really gains traction and the already nervous Republicans blink.

BEWARE!! There's deception afoot. If you notice my little orange "Save the Internet" banner on the right, that's the legitimate site that's working hard to keep greedy corporations from controlling our internet. Click on it and send your politicians an e-mail.

But there's an ad campaign put out by the telecom giants who want to control the internet and it's designed to fool you into thinking that they're the good guys. They're not. It's called Read all about it here.

Even the Boston Globe knows a bad idea when they see one, Keep net untrammeled.

Bill O'Reilly is promoting another witchhunt to frighten and confuse the folks who actually think FoxNews is "Fair and Balanced". It seems that in Fantasyland, we evil lefties aren't just trying to do away with Christians, but now it's specifically white Christians. It's amazing how many people will believe this crap.

"According to the lefty zealots, the white Christians who hold power must
be swept out by a new multicultural tide, a rainbow coalition, if you will."

Trying to get the Fantasyland dwellers on the right to define what liberal means is a pretty hard job. They have no idea, but they're pretty sure it's bad. Here's the story of one man's valiant attempt to get information from those on the right.

BTW, the short definition of liberal is, one who believes in the greatest good for the greatest number of people. Simple.

Maybe the answer to the whole left/right conundrum is in this article titled Human Ancestors May Have Interbred With Chimpanzees . The next time you see Bush on TV, watch real close and think about this article.

I did not mean that Conservatives are generally stupid; I meant, that stupid persons are generally Conservative. I believe that to be so obvious and undeniable a fact that I hardly think any hon. Gentleman will question it.
