Sean Hannity has gotten so desperate that he's begging Democrats to stay home come Election Day. Um, that's about all I've got for this. I just thought it was sort of funny and pitiful.

Karl Rove has either got this election completely and totally fixed so that his party can't lose in eleven days or he is pathologically delusional. And if it is the latter, then apparently math and polling work differently in his delusional world since he believes that while most polling indicates the Democrats gaining control of at least one house of Congress, in Rove math the GOP will keep control. Because he claims to look at more polls. And all those polls we lowly peons do not see tell him that the Republicans are all set come November 7th. So, like I said, either the fix is in, or the guy has lost his marbles. It better be the latter because I'm hoping the American public won't stand for the former yet again.

It's been quite a busy week for George W. Bush as he's spent much of it mired in some insane morass of semantics. I'm not even sure what his latest talking point is since he's gone from "stay the course" to "adapt to win" along with a couple of benchmarks and sort-of timetables thrown into the mix. Of couse, none of this actually addresses ANY of the problems in Iraq; it is more like owning a dog that keeps crapping all of the carpet, but you keep arguing what you should call the dog instead of actually addresses the crap-stained carpet. Of course, if I wanted someone to seriously address pressing foreign policy issues, I certainly wouldn't ask this cretin.

Donald Rumsfeld earned a strong amount of my ire this week when he told people how they need to just chill out on all the Iraq griping. I mean, seriously, it's not like they've given us any reason to be concerned with just how horrendously they've screwed up Iraq, so maybe we should just all just trust that things will eventually work themselves out and until then we should all just shut the hell up.

By far, the biggest hunk of garbage of the past week is obviously Rush Limbaugh, who thought nothing of ridiculing Michael J. Fox for no other reason than Fox came out in support of stem cell research. Mr. "I've actually had a couple of run-ins with the law myself for drugs" actually spoke out of his ass when he opined that Fox got off his meds for Parkinson's in order to look "extra-shaky" for the stem cell ad. Of course, one quick google search would have educated the bloviating one about the effects of not taking one's meds when one has Parkinson's - namely the exact opposite of excessive movement. But then that storyline would fit in with his smear of someone who doesn't comport with his views.
