So Maybe I Have A Small Problem With This

Sisyphus Shrugged now, I grant you that in this best of all possible worlds, the ideal way to handle important matters would be for Our Fearless Lead

Sisyphus Shrugged

now, I grant you that in this best of all possible worlds, the ideal way to handle important matters would be for Our Fearless Leader not to be involved in any way, and I find it kind of reassuring to discover that the White House agrees with me.

This, on the other hand, is somewhat disturbing

The violation of the no-fly zone Wednesday led more than 30,000 people to quickly leave the White House complex, the Capitol and the Supreme Court and triggered an eight-minute "red alert" at the White House.

At the time, Bush was riding a bicycle at a wildlife center in suburban Maryland and wasn't told of the alert until after he had completed his ride at 12:50
Vice President Dick Cheney, first lady Laura Bush and visiting former first lady Nancy Reagan were among those evacuated from the White House complex during the alert.

White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan said Thursday that White House Deputy Chief of Staff Joe Hagin and the U.S. Secret Service would review Wednesday's aircraft incident, the response and the failure to notify the commander in chief during his bike ride.

Now, the White House certainly knows the man far better than I do, so I have to assume that they feel confident that he would placidly agree that it was more important for him to finish his nice relaxing bike ride than to know that a red alert had caused his wife to be evacuated from their home.

I would tend to think that was a fairly accurate assessment myself, but then I have a great deal of bias in this area.

Which seems to have been confirmed by events yet again.

 

Sex slaves are classy        The Next Left

... or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Tom DeLay.

Is it just me or is sex slavery classy? Taking young women who come into a country to work in factories and then forcing them into prostitution ... that's class.

You know what else is classy? No minimum wage. Making sure that immigrant workers in the Marianas can continued to be paid whatever factory owners want to pay them ... that's class. Sticking a "Made in the USA" label on the products of their labor ... that's extra classy.

So who is the champion of class? Not the Democrats. When in 1997, Bill Clinton proposed to Marianas governor that workers have rights like those in the United States ... definitely not classy. Telling Marianas governor “certain labor practices in the islands . . . are inconsistent with our country’s values,” was an unclassy move. p.m., 47 minutes after the "red alert" was issued and 36 minutes after an all-clear.
