The News Is Depressing

Fallenmonk notes that Cindy Sheehan is leaving behind the peace movement and the Democratic Party, and who can blame her after the cowardly performance of Congress on funding the war. The fact that the only real benchmark is passing the Oil Law pretty much tells anyone who cares what the war was about – greed.

Of all people, Darth Cheney delivered the commencement address at West Point and the Los Angeles Times notes:

The vice president heaped scorn on “enemies” who “oppose and despise every notion of upright conduct and character.”

“Their cruelty is not rebuked by human suffering, only fed by it,” Cheney said. Yet, he said, they “demand the protections of the Geneva Convention and the Constitution” when captured.

Actually if Cheney hadn’t gotten his five deferments he would have known that they don’t have to demand those things, there was never any question that those rights would be given to them before the Shrubbery took the Wite-out to the Constitution, laws, and military regulations. Hearing Cheney say “Duty, Honor, Country” is similar to hearing Satan preach Scripture.

At this point I will help deserving individuals, but the Democratic Party can go pound sand.
