The Ghost of Vietnam Haunts the Left and Right Over Iraq

I can’t say that I pictured a happy America, but I had imagined a unified America. But we aren’t going to get that moment, because there was a war in between WWII and Iraq. We’re scared.

Bush’s claim that God – not the American people – chose him to lead America. Then there is the Bush crusade against terrorism, and yet nobody epitomizes the spirit of the past better than former Alaskan governor Sarah Palin.

Nobody in Jacksonville Will Pay $50 to See Sarah Palin

Every morning she hears it as soon as she wakes up, tick-tock, tick-tock. It follows her wherever she goes. It is the sound of Sarah Palin’s 15 minutes almost being up.

The dictionary definition of feminism is “the doctrine advocating social, political, and all other rights of women equal to those of men.” In no way do you stand for that, Sarah.

Unspinning the Spin: The Bush Tax Cuts  the Federal Deficit and You

Turning Karl Marx upside down, Republicans argue that when the money is taken from the poor and Middle Class it is not class warfare. Rather, it is the natural order of things.
