WWJA (Who Would Jesus Assassinate?)
"We have the ability to take him out, and I think the time has come that we exercise that ability. We don't need another $200 billion war to get rid of one, you know, strong-arm dictator. It's a whole lot easier to have some of the covert operatives do the job and then get it over with."
This is just more evidence that what the religious right calls the "culture of life" is only meant to refer to fetuses and brain dead women from Florida.

A Crawford Update
If that was not insulting enough, there was video footage from later that day of a Pro-Bush group similarly delivering a letter that was happily received by the previously "unavailable" administration officials. This is a slap in the face to all of those who have been made to sacrifice their loved-ones, and only demand a truthful reason why their soldiers, marines, airmen and sailors were killed.
Return of Liberalog
I think that the major story has been Cindy Sheehan, and the rising anti-war movement that has solidified around her Crawford Texas vigil called Camp Casey. This movement has become a major political thorn in the side of the Bush Administration. For this reason alone, I would say that Sheehan deserves our support.
In addition to the grief that Sheehan and her Gold Star Families for Peace Organization is giving Bush, they are highlighting some very important issues concerning the Iraq War. Every day that these people are camped out in front of Bush's ranch, they call attention to the lies that Bush used to get us into the quagmire that the war has become. It also highlights the administration's lack of a realistic plan for post-war Iraq, and the ever changing exit strategy plans that the administration keeps announcing. This has resulted in the Bush approval rating fall to just over 40%.
One drawback of this movement's overtaking the news cycle, is the disappearance of the Karl Rove/Valerie Plame story. We need to work toward keeping this story alive. If we can keep both the Rove scandal, the quagmire in Iraq, and the Abramoff/Delay stories in the news; we have a great chance of regaining both houses of Congress in 2006, and the Whitehouse in 2008!

Bush Flip-Flops on Palme Outing
You Too Can Help Get Karl Rove Fired!!!
It is up to us to apply the pressure needed to make Bush stick to his word and fire anyone involved in the outing of Valerie Plame. How do we apply this pressure you ask? One way is to sign petitions! Congresspeople respond to large numbers of voters reacting to an issue, and tend to sway with the political winds. Here is a link to the DCCC petition that has a short video about the whole Rove affair http://www.democraticaction.org/firerove/?source=d3cfull. Watch the video, sign the petition and send it on to all of your friends (even the Republicans, ask them to put their money where their mouth is on National Security!). The second and most effective way is to write to all of your representatives. It is especially important if they are Republicans, but write even if they are Democrats--they can use the volume of letters to help sway their Republican colleagues. Here is a link to a site where you can find your Representatives and send them email (www.congress.org), I use it all the time. Exercise your right to free speech and tell your elected officials how you feel. Let's get rid of Karl Rove!
