The Dick had this to say yesterday:
As I’ve watched the events of the last few days it is clear once again that President Obama is trying to pretend we are not at war. He seems to think if he has a low key response to an attempt to blow up an airliner and kill hundreds of people, we won’t be at war.
But let’s remember how his puppet, then president, responded to an almost identical terrorist attempt:
Eight years ago, when a terrorist tried to blow up an airplane under nearly identical circumstances, then-President Bush waited six days before making brief, cursory public remarks. Five days after the attempted terrorist attack, then-Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld refused substantive comment altogether, telling reporters, “That’s a matter that’s in the hands of the law enforcement people.” A White House spokesperson would only say at the time that officials were “continuing to monitor events.”
Was there outrage when Bush didn’t cut his Christmas vacation short and made little comment about the “shoebomber”?
The media also seemed to have little interest in pressing Bush about the bombing, or the fact that the incident had revealed a previously unknown vulnerability in airplane security — that shoes could be used to hide chemicals or explosive devices.
An Agence France-Presse story was one of the few to call attention to the silence from Bush and other top officials.
Those pesky French!
The most dangerous terrorist threat facing this country comes not from overseas but from snakes like Dick Cheney.

The rich buying off lawmakers and amping up the Pig People to help them screw the middle class while blaming the poor is exactly how this country works. Without an ample supply of Conservative meatsticks to help the oligarchs bury their bodies and frame their patsies, we’d hardly ever get a decent war for oil, or secret prison system, or mass wiretapping program or casino-economy off the ground.

Sarah Palin is mind-blowing. Just when you think she couldn’t possibly say something any more ridiculous or insane, she tops herself.
This unfortunate blight on the American public believes that it doesn’t matter that she is bone ignorant on every important public policy question, by golly, her opinion trumps even science!
As you may have read elsewhere, as part of her ongoing effort to position herself as a “serious person,” the Quitta from Wassilla has posted another ghostwritten piece on Facebook and a ghostwritten op-ed in the Washington Post, the subject this time is climate change, and she does not appreciate the pushback, people, so quit it!
They don’t want to listen to some reasonable voices in this. And that was proven with the publication of this op-ed, where they kind of got all we-weed up about it and wanted to call me and others deniers of changing weather patterns and climate conditions. Trying to make the issue into something that it is not.
But Laura Ingraham apparently didn’t get the memo concerning the inviolacy of Palin’s mental bubble and asked her if she would be willing to debate Al Gore!
But, sadly — and predictably — it isn’t going to happen. Oh, Sarah Palin is perfectly willing, she just doesn’t think Al Gore would be.
Oh, he wouldn’t want to lower himself, I think, to, you know, my level to debate little old Sarah Palin from Wasilla.

And the next time you hear a “conservative” referring to Democrats as fascists, keep this little chart in mind:
That’s right. Sarah Palin and John McCain are closer in political temperament to Hitler than anyone in the Democratic Party.
