Are we surprised?

Colin Powell is out. Read between the lines of the article, and you'll see that Bush wanted him gone, probably for "disloyalty." Rod Paige is out, too. I can imagine that conversation, where Bush says "Rod, we're bringing on that Mexican fella, and we've still got Condi, so don't take this the wrong way, but get the hell out." After all, although the Reich needs to pay lip service to the idea that all men are created equal, there's such a thing as too much!

CIA purges are going on, too, and you can read about that pretty much anywhere. Up next are the pogroms against anyone who has ever said that Bush is an asshole.


  • (Savannah) What worries me about the CIA purges is...well, everything. First, just the sheer idea of a political purge. Second, the *effect* of a political purge, which, as Christopher Hitchens was fond of pointing out before he became a Bush-supporting lunatic, gets rid of all the smart (and brave and principled) people. Which means that henceforth, at a time of unparalleled peril, our nation's security will be handled by fanatics and yes-men. Great. And third, there is the whiplash-inducing information that Bush considers the CIA--the CIA, now--to be a "hotbed of liberals." May I remind you that we are talking about THE CIA? Them what put the Shah and Agusto Pinochet, just for two right-wing examples, in charge of their respective nations? The day the CIA is considered a hotbed of liberals is the day we have officially entered La-La Land. God help us all.

  • (Matt) Bush is an asshole with delusions of godhood.
