“It is useless to attempt to reason a man out of a thing he was never reasoned into”

Jonathan Swift
"The Democrats have moved to the right, and the right has moved into a mental hospital." - Bill Maher
"The city is crowded my friends are away and I'm on my own
It's too hot to handle so I gotta get up and go

It's a cruel ... cruel summer"

Roving the Buckbrush

It's about corruption, ladies and germs. Walk right up! See the three-headed monster revealed, slithering on its belly like a reptile! Yes, it has three heads, but it'll try to deceive you. Shine a light on it, and it's kinder, gentler face will swell right up to the camera, while the other two hide behind the curtain. But don't get too close! This beast has no human morality. It'll steal your job, sell your mother into slavery and eat your children whole, all in order to win the next election. Welcome to the big top of the 2006 mid-term elections!

Joshua Michael Marshall is all over the Rove story this week. A particularly juicy find is this bit about Rove's attorney, another sleeze bucket of the first order. Click here to see an instant poll of aol readers on this subject. This should all lead to a bunch of commercials. We have Bush saying he'd fire whoever was responsible, and we have Rove's attorney admitting to it. We also have Tom DeLay and Bill Frist yakking about Terri Schiavo. We have Gov. Mo' Fo' and gitondowntheroad. We have lots of legislators talking in positive terms about Bush's Social Security fiasco. And on and on.
