Tony Snow starts things off for us in Week Eleven. He spent the better part of this week basically making crap up out of whole cloth about Bush, like how he's the champion of stem cell research and the highest of high protectors of the environment. Luckily there's this little thing called the internets that allows ordinary people to do things like research in order to call BX on Snow-spin. Snow also made time to demand an apology from John Kerry hours after Kerry had already given an apology.

George W. Bush isn't even being subtle about it anymore. I'm referring of course to Bush now coming out and flat out saying that a vote for Democrats this Tuesday is a vote for terrorists. It reminds me of DICK Cheney's nonsense back in '04 as he tried (and apparently succeeded) in frightening the voting public by claiming that the "wrong choice" this November could lead to another 9/11. Bush has apparently now dropped all pretense about being above the partisan fray and is now basically calling anyone who would even contemplate voting for Dems a terrorist sympathizer.

The latest religious right hypocrite to come out is none other than Ted Haggard, a man who just two days ago, I had never heard of. Now, he's at the center of a whole load of shitstorms because he was the leader of a major religious organization that spent much time and energy railing against gays and such. So naturally the guy has been frequenting a gay prostitute for the past three years, obstensibly for "massages" and methanphetamines. As yet another religious zealot is exposed for the hypocrite he is, this will more than likely further depress GOP/conservative get-out-the-vote efforts. Oh, happy days...

Whatever you do, do not ask George Felix Allen Jr. anything that might offend him, for if you do, his goonsquad will assault you, throw you to the ground and forcibly remove you from Felix's presense. After all, that's what happened to one of his own constituents, who wanted to know about Felix's past problems with his wife. Inappropriate to ask? Perhaps, but I would tend to think in this day and age that anything is fair game. If you've got a skeleton in your closet, you'd best be prepared to defend it. Unless you're Felix; then you just have your thugs remove the offending party.

John Boehner spent much of the week felating Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld. What with all the love from Boehner to Rummy, I would almost wonder if the Rum-man has a pic or two of Boehner in a compromising position. First Boehney claims that the Donald is the best thing to happen to the Pentagon in twenty-five years. Then later he claims that, though he is the freakin' Secretary of Defense and as such is in charge of the war in Iraq, Rumsfeld should not be blamed for all the problems in Iraq. As I noted earlier, he is sort of right in that Bush should shoulder most of the blame, but since we all know that that's not how this adminstration operates, the blame must instead fall somewhere else. And Boehner points the finger at the "generals on the ground". Because in this day and age, fault never falls at the leaders' feet; it stops a few levels down.
