Politics - Fall's Latest Fashion: Turncoat

This week, on the bad side, it's Lyin' Joe LIEberman, registering as a Democrat, according to diarist Sprinkles at Daily Kos. The Chairman of the Connecticut for Lieberman party is, understandably, miffed that the lying whore LIEberman has rejoined the Democratic party after knifing the entire collective body thoroughly in the back.

Next up, "Straight Talk Was So Yesterday" McCain, announcing that he's been a Baptist for years, although he's identified himself as an Episcopalian for years. When dat happen, John? Right before you went a-campaignin' to heavily Baptist South Carolina? McCain has also dropped all mention of Bush from his campaign speeches. Good luck, John, old buddy old pal. That and a couple of bucks ought to get you a nice half-caf mocha soy latte.

Then, Alan Greenspan tells us that he just didn't realize that all those variable ARMs he was cramming down our collective throat were going to result in so much fail. To add insult to injury, he then tells us that we're in Iraq for the oil, something anyone with multiple brain cells has said from before the war even began.

Next up, Dubya's longtime buddy Vicente Fox, who describes his old amigo as stubborn and cocky, and claims he would never have thought Bush could get into the WH. Neither did most other Americans, Vicente, we all think Bush stole both elections.

Iraq War architect and professional hawk, Donny Rummy came out with a nasty little remark about being "too busy" to pay attention to what's happening in Iraq, and stated that he didn't miss ol' buddy Bushie in the least.

And the Pentagon just took a swipe at Rude Ghouliani, who is using Petraeus' pictures without permission in his attack ads aimed at Hillary Clinton. I wonder why?

On the plus side, an entire generation of Cuban exiles in Florida is giving the Republicans the hairy eyeball. Good. We have lots more to worry about than Fidel Castro and that stupid embargo, when we have Stupie McDrunktard in the WH with his finger on the button, ready to throw us all, willy-nilly, into WWIII.

Iraqi parliamentarians allied with cleric Moqtada al-Sadr have withdrawn from Nouri al-Maliki's sham "government," exposing it for what it really is - a puppet force limited to the Green Zone, with its politicians mostly living in foreign lands. As noted by a Kurdish lawmaker:
"The Americans always try to pretend the responsibility for cleaning up this mess isn't theirs and tend to shift blame onto Iraq, Iran and Syria for everything that goes wrong," said veteran Kurdish lawmaker Mahmoud Othman.
Traditional Republican constituents in Colorado are really really pissed off at Bush's efforts at oil and gas drilling occur in their hitherto pristine state, opening up opportunities for Democrats to take a couple of seats there.

Military families are calling bullshit on Bush/Petraeus' "drawdown" strategies. Perhaps they're finally seeing the Liar 'n Thief for what he is.

Chuck Hagel calls Bush's Iraq policy a "dirty trick." He won't run for re-election, giving the Democrats an opportunity at yet another Senate seat and forcing Republicans to spend time, money, and energy defending a seat that, as long as Chuck Hagel was in it, was pretty much guaranteed for them.

And - big YAY! - Lincoln Chafee has left the Republican party and registered as an independent. I've always liked Chafee. His positions are pretty moderate, overall, and some of them are downright progressive. I hope he wins whatever he runs for next. I'd rather have him in the Senate than that foul, lying, weaselly little tool, Joe LIEberwhore. Or "Dirty Diapers" Vitter, for that matter.
The Los Angeles times reports, via Huffingto Post, that defense secretary Robert Gates is pushing for larger troop cuts in Iraq, although he's apparently being pressured by the Bushies to backpeddle on that.

The Los Angeles Times also reports that U.C. Irvine is in the embarrassing position of attempting to rehire law professor Erwin Chemerinsky as dean of their law school after the chancellor dumped him for being "too liberal."
