This just in from the email box:

Hi Everyone,

PBS is doing one of those instant online polls to ask ” America ” if they

think Sarah Palin is fit to be Vice President.

The GOP has launched a successful all out blitz to get Republicans to go

on the site and click “Yes”. As a result right now it looks like 62% of

” America ” thinks Palin is qualified. The Republicans are going to be

milking this for all its worth in their press efforts.

We need to drive more Democrats and those opposed to Palin to the site to

click “NO”. Let’s not give the GOP another easy weapon to put in their PR

arsenal!

How do you feel about that?

Need some convincing?

Apparently, there has been some headway in the Sarah Palin email hacking case. I don’t know if you can really call it hacking if your PW is one of your children’s names. Or the answer to your secret question is y our husband/wife’s name…but whatever. Anyway, David Kernell *son of Tennesse Dem state rep Mike Kernell* is about to get his 15 minutes of fame and a nice slap on the wrist. Will the Repub spin doctors work their hoodoo voodoo all over this here unfortunate turn of stupidity and eek another presidency out of it? Or will the Dems play it smooth and just chalk it up to college kid antics?

Only time will tell.

Another news item that seems to have gotten buried:

Suit seeks to save Cheney files

Litigants fear that the vice president could destroy his records as personal property.
By Christopher Lee, Washington Post
September 8, 2008
WASHINGTON — Historians and open-government advocates are concerned that Vice President Dick Cheney, who has long bristled at requirements to disclose his records, will destroy or withhold key documents that illustrate his role in forming U.S. policy for the last 7 1/2 years.

In a preemptive move, several of them have agreed to join the advocacy group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington in asking a federal judge to declare that Cheney’s records are covered by the Presidential Records Act of 1978 and cannot be destroyed, taken or withheld without proper review.

The group expects to file the lawsuit today in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. It will name Cheney, the executive offices of the president and vice president, and the National Archives and chief archivist Allen Weinstein as defendants.

The goal, they say, is to protect a trove of information about national security, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, domestic wiretapping, energy policy and other major issues that could be hidden from the public if Cheney adheres to his view that he is not part of the executive branch and is not required to make his papers public after leaving office.

Access to the documents is crucial because he is widely considered to be the most influential vice president in U.S. history, they say.

Congress passed the law after the Watergate scandal to ensure that the country’s highest elected officials preserve their papers for public review.

“I’m concerned that they may not be preserved. Whether they’ve been zapped already, we don’t know,” said Stanley I. Kutler, an emeritus professor and constitutional scholar at the University of Wisconsin Law School.

Cheney has not disclosed his plans for his papers, nor has he argued publicly that any are exempt from the 1978 law.

“The Office of the Vice President currently follows the Presidential Records Act and will continue to follow the requirements of the law, which includes turning over vice presidential records to the National Archives at the end of the term,” Cheney spokesman Jamie Hennigan said.

Kutler and others, including the American Historical Assn. and the Society of American Archivists, are not reassured. Their lawsuit contends that President Bush sought to improperly narrow the scope of the records law in a 2001 executive order that declares, in part, that the statute “applies to the executive records of the vice president.”

Scholars describe “executive records” as a term that is not found in the original act and that seemingly opens the door to withholding some documents on the grounds that they are “nonexecutive” records — legislative records, for instance.

It raised red flags because Cheney has argued that his office is not part of the executive branch but rather is “attached” to the legislative branch by virtue of the vice president’s role as president of the Senate.

The group wants the Archives to abandon its interpretation that legislative records of vice presidents are personal property and not covered by the presidential records law.

Martin J. Sherwin, a history professor at George Mason University and a plaintiff in the case, said it would be impossible to measure Cheney’s influence without access to the records. “It horrifies me as a citizen to think our government can operate in total secrecy during the administration and then, after the administration, remain in secrecy.”

So you mean we have to sue this devil to prevent something we’re pretty sure he’ll do, and he’s still in office? See what happens when ya’ll let your grand parents vote Republican just cuz somebody says they believe in God. I’m sure Lucifer told the fallen agents he was doing it for God before he started that war too.

Oh yeah, happy 9/11

Evans>Liddell

Posted in Editorial with tags , , , , , , on September 7, 2008 by tomwars

Last night Rashad Evans, the quiet tongued loud posturing winner, from the Ultimate Fighter reality series knocked out former light heavyweight champion the “Iceman” Chuck Liddell. One minute and forty one seconds into the the second round, Mr. Evans showed Liddell what that curious W tattoo on his arm meant when he said “Wu Tang clan ain’t nuttin to f*ck wit”.

Given the history between Liddell and Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, I would say I notice a pattern. I am willing to believe that Liddell’s chin is allergic to black people. Oh sure, laugh but the numbers don’t lie. Someone say this isn’t a color thing, its an age thing and Liddell is just over the hill. Even if it is an age thing, I find it to be symbolic of other things to come.
