And yet the president stood by his C.I.A. director, John Brennan, a cheerleader for torture during the Bush years, who continues to do things that are contrary to our values.

Guess what, dear. You can have and hold your values because some people voluntarily give up their rights to obey their values.

Who is this sanctimonious little toad, anyway? I can't be arsed to look it up.

Nothing wrong with MoDo that a good f***in' wouldn't cure, but the problem is finding a volunteer...

A "tape worm of insecurity"?? What the heck has she been drinking?
“My god! How little do my countrymen know what precious blessings they are in possession of, and which no other people on earth enjoy? I confess I had no idea of it myself.” Jefferson writing to Madison on America in 1785 while in Paris.

George W Bush certainly did more than any man in recorded history. The list of things he's "responsible" for is infinite.  :silly:

The arcane Maureen Dowd. Would that I knew what she was talking about.

Maureen Dowd's opinion is must read for the intelligentsia crowd who pretend to understand her.

Barely a single sentence of her hipster exposition makes any sense to me, though. I guess I'm not hip enough.

Thank you... I'm not alone.  WTF?!?!
For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

Bush Derangement Syndrome is alive and well.  However guilty GWB might be, Obama is orders of magnitude more guilty.

At least Bush waited until after he'd done something before writing a book. Or books. Or having books written for him...

Politics aside.....there was a day when I'd have hit it.    :laugh:

Maybe doggie but never missionary!  And always, ALWAYS in the dark!  Probably an assumed name too.

But that 'bartender' is/was the owner of the Washington Post...which means his word can't be trusted.  LOL!
