Voters are to Blame for Bad Politics

"We like to blame the news media for all of the "gotcha" political stories that pry too deeply into the personal lives and distant past history of candidates and therefore keep many good and qualified people out the political arena."

"Wars never fail to produce their share of pithy lines. Tommy Franks made sure this one would be no exception."

"The British elite are all in a grand tizzy! No, it’s not about Prince Charles marrying his mistress, Camilla Parker Bowles. They are roaring mad over the IRA supposedly robbing a bank in British-Occupied Belfast, on Dec. 20, 2004, of $50 million dollars. The IRA denies any involvement. The hypocrisy of these British Imperialists is simply breathtaking. They “stole” Ireland from the Irish people! Now, they complain when the tables are turned!"

George Bush will demand all kinds of immediate Syrian concessions without so much as mentioning the Golan Heights."
