Help us help those who have been driven into shrill unholy madness by the mendacity, malevolence, incompetence, and simple disconnection from reality of George W. Bush and his administration! Send notable examples of shrillness to shrillblog@gmail.com!

The NY Times Is Shrill: An Un-American Way to Campaign... undermines the efforts of the Justice Department and the Central Intelligence Agency to combat terrorists in America.... Mr. Bush['s]... own campaign speeches... equally divisive and undemocratic...

The President's Hometown Paper Endorses Kerry: A weekly newspaper that bills itself as President Bush's hometown paper endorsed John Kerry for president, saying the Massachusetts senator will restore American dignity...

David H. Hackworth Is Shrill: ...the miasma of deception... the ugly unsolvable occupation... lies fanned by the same Pentagon propaganda machine... we were told Iraq had WMD that threatened our country’s security... that Saddam was a key player behind 9/11... that liberating Iraq would be a cakewalk... would cost no more than a billion bucks... repaid by Iraqi oil... Super Flack James Wilkinson, the reported Spielberg of the Lynch saga, has recently been shifted from desert duties to advising National Security Advisor Rice on how to further deceive the American people. Like Vietnam, the cover-ups and distortions will continue until the press and the people wake up...

The National Intelligence Council Was Preemptively Shrill Before War: ...classified reports prepared for President Bush in January 2003... predicted that an American-led invasion... would increase support for political Islam... would result in a deeply divided Iraqi societ... violent internal conflict... insurgency against the new Iraqi government or American-led forces... rogue elements from Saddam Hussein's government could work with existing terrorist groups or act independently to wage guerrilla warfare... a war would increase sympathy across the Islamic world for some terrorist objectives...
