Black Friday: USA v. Iraq

My fellow Americans are enjoying a peacful day of overspending after a peacful day of pigging out. Are we the most blessed nation on earth or what?
Meanwhile our democracy-challenged protege in Iraq are slaughtering on another.
I feel so guilty sitting here on my privilaged ass while thousands and thousands of people are being in Iraq.
What to do? What to do? I really don't know, but I want you to know that it's upsetting and I"d like to care about pre-dawn sales and red-tag specials, but Iraq is a mess to put it mildly, and we, American's are responsible for the damage.

Land that I Love

I've never been so excited about an election. This was the best election ever. I'm trippin': Go America!
Take That Neocons! See, you can't just run a country like you own the place. This is American and we're taking our country back from you assholes.
We are partying like the Superbowl here at my house. Little sausages, chips and salsa and a wicked sense of poetic justice.
Next to resign: George W Bush. Political Capital my ass.
How did that idiot ever get elected in the first place? I'm proud to say that I never voted for him and I'm a registered Republican.
Yeee-Hawww, Go Democrats. My friend Vicki was a loyal Democrat her whole life and I'm sure she's having a party in heaven.
Donkeys Rule.

Yawn, a governor's race.

Ron Saxton wants to unseat Kulongoski as the governer of America's most pleasant but fiscally challenged state: Oregon.
He's going to loose not because Kulongoski is such a great governor or that Saxton is such a bad guy but because Kulongoski hasn't done anything shockingly bad or pissed off the wrong people.
Oregon is about the same as it was four years ago when Kulongoski was elected, and Saxton is blabbing the typical politician's promises of better schools and better jobs, but he's not exactly blowing us out of the water with his charisma.
Even a political enthusiast like myself can get sick of a politician and last night Saxton made me sick of him. While watching an hour's worth of news on TV, Saxton's bland commerical trying to distance himself from the problems of Republicans played over and over and over and over.
Kulongoski is no dynamo, but he's OK and in Oregon OK is good enough.

If independent Ben Westlund had stayed in the race I would have voted for him, just for livening the race up a little.
