So, Did Osama Wear a Blue Dress?

I'm not a big fan of former President Bill Clinton. I did not vote for him during his second campaign. Therefore, I'd like to put a gentle question to Dr. Condi Rice:

So why didn't you raise the Al-Qaeda danger during the impeachment hearings, you opportunitistic, ass-covering, hindsight-happy twit?

Oh...that's right. Predictions are always made after the fact! Ask Pat Robertson. Ask any psychic.

Holy James Randi, could the Bush Administration get any stupider?

"Holy James Randi, could the Bush Administration get any stupider?"

They're working on it in a secret bunker, with the help of the NSA, the CIA, the ATF, and about a dozen other gun-toting government agencies. I might get erased for telling you this, but they are working on a cluster-fuck of such colossal proportions that it will forever take the place of the Gordian Knot in mythology. I don't know the exact details, but they have been ordering old Keystone Cops, Three Stooges, and "Jackass, the Movie" from their local Blockbuster. Rumor has it that they have also hired a famous Microsurgeon to lobotomize "Dubya".

OK, I'm done.

They may erase me, too, because I know what comes next!

Dubya, of course being the ultimate Gordian Knot (which was "lobotomized" by Alexander).

Yes, they prove it daily.

Well, here’s to the notion that they’ll sink to the level of Grand Unified Stupidity and get it the hell over with! And then collapse into a singularity, which falls into a black hole. (Lifts coffee mug.)

I think there is plenty of blame to go around to both the Clinton administration and the Bush administration concerning the pre-9/11 intelligence failures. But be fair, Clinton had 8 years; Bush didn't.

You have to admit that Clinton's aggressive behavior and rhetoric during that Wallace interview was weasling. Clinton is somewhat of a political genius though. Many of us see his debating techniques for what they are: weasling. But he has effectively energized the anti-Republican, blame Bush for everything, far left base in that interview.

This is not a defense of the Bush Administration's pre-9/11 intelligence failures. But, the facts remain that Clinton had more than his fair share of failures. I would have more respect for him if he owned up to his failures, and quit weasling and making the fault of 9/11 a political issue to divide this country.

Bill is playing his cards in a very calculated matter to set his wife up for the 2008 election. That's all we need; Hillary to lead us in the war on terrorism.... shudder

I'm no big fan of Hillary, but she's much more qualified to lead anything than this gang of ninnies who are leading us now.

No I didn't see Clinton's interview. I don't have much time for T.V.

I didn't see it either. I heard bits and pieces of it, but I read the script online.

What would Hillary do about the terrorist threat that makes her "qualified?"

Well, for one thing, I am sure that she would reopen the investigation into Al Qaeda's activities in Yemen, which was shut down in 2000 by then Ambassador Barb Bodine. The FBI operative who was trying to investigate this quit and was working security at the WTC on 9-11. He died.

Neither Bush nor Hillary are personally qualified to fight wars all by themselves, but I doubt that Hillary would surround herself by gung-ho civilians, as Bush has, and shrug off the plethora of qualified personnel who quit the White House after the beginning of the Iraq War, as Bush has. In fact, I doubt many Republican presidents would have done what Bush has. By not listening to seasoned war generals he's in a class all by himself.

No Commander-in-Chief should go to war without at least one exit strategy--a problem Clinton had with Somalia (and I'm not talking about a "timetable"), and several worse-case scenarios. That's just good war planning, not pessimism.

I am sure that Hillary (or frankly, almost anyone) would heal the friction between Secretary of State Office and the Defense Secretary and his staff. That said, I'm not a big fan of hers and I hope that she does not run.
