Apollo 4 on column of fire

an excellent idea

Jeralyn Merritt has an excellent idea:

Abu Ghraib, like Guantanamo, will forever be a stain on our national legacy. Along with the War in Iraq, it should be the first thing children in school are taught about the presidency of George W. Bush.

The weaseliness of Barack Obama

Wherein Barack Obama lies to cover up his lack of clear, unambiguous ‘opposition’ to the Iraq occupation: http://www.talkleft.com/story/2008/1/13/155759/094

I say Obama has supported the occupation. Even if Obama has an excuse for calling his support ‘opposition’, it is a lie to call this ‘opposition’ ‘clear’ and ‘unambiguous’.

(Dennis Kucinich can claim ‘clear’ and ‘unambiguous’ opposition to the entire misadventure. Obama’s ‘opposition’ became unclear and ambiguous at the minute he gained the ability to vote on it.

I infer from his own weaseliness that John Edwards also would have supported the occupation as Obama has done, were Edwards still in the Senate.

Rhetoric is cheap.)
