McCain must be insane! It’s the ONLY possible explanation!

On NBC Nightly News, Brian Williams asks John Bush McCain about Iraq. “Will your support be there for however many U.S. troops are required?” McCain answers emphatically: “Yes.”

Senility has set in and the man OBVIOUSLY does not have full control of his mental facilities.

Either that…or he is TOTALLY out of touch with the VAST MAJORITY of the American people.

Reality bites: Hillary bad for ticket

With Hillary Rodham Clinton headed for what many consider a well-deserved place in the political dustbin of has-beens, new polls suggest that she may be just what presumptive Democratic nominee Barack Obama does not need on his ticket as a Vice Presidential candidate.

Dennis the Menace: Impeach Bush

Dennis the Menace is at it again. The mouth that roared in Congress is trying, once again, to impeach President George W. Bush.

Although Bush certainly deserves impeachment for all his high crimes against the Constitution, it will take someone with more clout and credibility than Kuchinich to make that happen. The Ohio Congressman that couldn’t is a Capitol Hill joke and a laughing stock to other members on the Hill.

Kucinich, who has also launched two impossible campaigns for President and failed miserably both times, is the Congressional equivalent of a flea climbing up an elephant’s leg with rape on his mind.

The cheap gas culture that has driven the nation’s economy and fostered unprecedented mobility may be over for good, leaving a major wreck along its vast network of superhighways that could take a decade or two to clean up.

Doing just fine at $8 a gallon

I’d intended to spend only one night in Toulouse, in southern France. But when I tried to buy a train ticket to Madrid on the evening of my arrival, I discovered that the following day was dedicated to a general strike. Trains, buses, and even many airlines were taking the day off. This happened to be the same day that the price of oil hit $135 per barrel.

A society of adulterers?

When I wondered aloud, "Is infidelity a sin whose time has come?" my colleague retorted, "It never left!" Indeed, the string of politicians, sports figures and movie stars cheating on their wives is an endless parade of mea culpas.

"Why do men cheat?" I asked Dr. Ruth Westheimer, psychosexual therapist, as faculty and fellows gathered for the Yale commencement this year. Her voice escalated. "It’s not only men! And put an exclamation point there. I have nothing more to say."
