How hard did we have to fight to get Iraq back to the Iraqi people and clean up a little of the mess behind?

Breech-birth labor at a minimum, but closer perhaps to the horrors of Vietnam (for us geezers).

It was infuriating for the news networks to run the footage of Dubbyah's absurdly quiet and pragmatic address to the nation when he got his lifelong dream of getting to blow shit up in Iraq for the invisible WMD's.

Paging Cat Stevens, Green Day, Pearl Jam, U2, Neil Young, Yoko Ono and Joan Baez on one cool conference call, your president needs you to do some kicking pacifist songs and get America grooving on what is good about liberals and President Obama.

There's too much Iraq news. Blackwater must be licking their chops, as well as the (celebrating) Military Industrial Complex coffer counters.

Let's first have a look at the hepped up gun fondling war-lovin' extremists over at Fvx Nation.
And a peek at La Palin's channel (laughter is the best medicine). As always apologies for the Fvx in the morning egregiousness.

And Morning Joe went there, naturally. The nausea medicine Zofran is third shelf down in the complimentary TPC cloak room. Take two, it's early yet.

How effing long do we have to protest wars?

I feel like I'm going to be 92, in my best gardening hat, carrying a placard (sarcastic, I'm releasing the inner grumpus at 80-85), and botching ourselves about civil rights, gender equality , LGBTQ and guns.

For starters.

Lindsey Graham Clutches His Pearls On Foreign Policy … #CuzPutin !

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

Cuz ...... PUTIN. Is pretty much what Miss Lindsey clutched his pearls and sputtered for David Gregory Sunday.

It's a popular GOP All Purpose regressive stutter.

Cuz ...... PUTIN.

Los Three Amigos, Graham, McCain and the Other Guy (let's give them a running start for the day and make it a certifiably dis-self-interested Republican Lady today, Kelly Ayotte comes to mind); these are the ones we HAD to hear from on Sunday Tawk … and then again, on Monday Morning Punditry.

playing-footsy

For a sumup of the latter, early morning messnbc serves to update.

meanwhile

Thomas Roberts (I'm going to keep on loving him unapologetically, and keep hoping he and Maddow are friends for some odd reason), current charming steward of messnbc's Way Too Early at the crack of what(?) advance show to Morning Schmoe [ my autocorrect kept putting Morning Hoe I Swear!] summed up the Lindsey Graham Sunday Pearl Clutch well.

Thomas ...

On another planet's must sees of Sunday Talkers, John Kerry found himself on the business end of a hot mic and not far enough away from the only (they allege) voice we libs have to at least give a listen to ... Mike Wallace's kid, Chris.

Kerry was caught reacting to an aide about civilian casualties in the latest Mideast skirmishes and of his desire as Secretary of State to be on gia way to the region. This was the normal human reaction to hearing that ANY CIVIIANS have died in war ANY where ... and got drenched in "We told 'yaz" from Fvx Nation until, well, ... now.

For grins and giggles, let us compare. Early-bird messsnbc ran a breaking/kind of banner about the deadliest day yet in Gaza, including two Israeli soldiers born here in America ... to Schmoe and the Wall Street Journal predicting a Ramp Up.

And the Curvy Couch of Ick on Fox and Friends went with ...

TWO AMERICANS DEAD!!! Two Americans spilled blood ... Dizzy Hasselbeck tried to capture the gravitas of Gaza and frenzy her wee base at one go.

Cuz ...... PUTIN.

And now Mika and Joe are declaring a Deafening Silence is coming from the White House.

Cuz ...... PUTIN, and Mika's Daddy doesn't like Putin or Joe Schmoe for that matter. And where would Haass go but down to the bunker also too?

Joe Schmoe's obligatory GOP Ronald Reagan paean included, before a gratiutous dig to the legendary feckless Obama's Lack Of Feck. Are we back to the Ego Bowl again?

Heilemann pointed out that this president takes a lot of flack for not doing enough to help his party as midterms approach ... well this is about as much as he CAN contribute. This level of fundraising!

Seriously. Go Heilemann. You might have a future in the evening lineup. Keep that pseudo-reality train stopping through there on a regular basis.

'Kremlin control' in a nationalist-frenzied Russia was reported on first hand by none other than David Remnick, however, by the 7:15 mark.
Worth the few moments to get his perspective. Mind the neo-con manure.

Hey, Won't You Play Another Somebody Done Somebody Wrong Song

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

Say What

One thing about the Sunday Talkers, more often than not it's the same old players singing that same old song. Once in while, you get an Alan Grayson who speaks his mind or a Todd Akin who speaks lacking a mind.

Then you get the next kind of chatterbox, the one who says things you really don't expect to hear -- at least from them. This past Sunday it was the human political piñata , Karl Rove.  He was criticizing the GOP, or at least their most public mouthpiece of late, Rafael Cruz.

Rove, who despite having very little to work with, singlehandedly gave this country 8 years of George Bush. What he did with that Texas rube GW was best described in the lyrics of a song from Fiddler on the Roof--, "...and out of a worthless lump of clay, God has made a man, today." That was Karl at his best.

Well, that miracle worker is seeing crisis right here in the Capital City that starts with "C" which stands for Cruz. Rafael 'Ted' has raised more than eyebrows with his shut down the government banter. He's caused some deep ire among the faithful.

For Cruz, it's not just what he's saying, it's how he's going about it. He's not taking orders, he's giving them.

And for arch-conservative strategists, like Rove and the Koch Brothers, he's proven more rogue that their former poster boy, John McCain. With McCain they knew they had a loose cannon, but they had such a need to keep a Black man out of the White House that they felt encumbered to get behind him because to the Republicans, the alternative was untenable. Something they could never live or work with. And the last five years have proven that to be true.

Now comes another rogue. And his crazy side is identical to the minority tea party which is what the GOP has become ruled by. Rove, the Koch's and Adelson don't like it. This guy won't listen to the money men. He's Pinocchio come to life without any strings.

So, there's a plan -- destroy the monster before he becomes too powerful and usurps their control. So they've sent out hatchet man Rove to start felling the old Canadian oak tree. The first chop has begun. Ax man Rove has taken to the airwaves and the press corps and has fired an anti-Cruz missile hoping to take out some branches, if not totally remove the stump from that smirky adolescent.

Here's Karl Rove setting up the clearer thinking, yet still rightwing of the Republican party.
