Blind Leading the Blind

I found a recipe for disaster today. Take one part Bubba's post on the realities of world oil and gas supply and demand (and the Bush administration's seemingly obliviousness to the truth). Add Krugman from today's Houston Chronicle explaining why the White House is so divorced from the truth as seen by a majority of Americans. Stir in Jim Wright's analysis of the power of greed in the US Congress. Fold in the latest news from Iraq. Then bring to a boil the anger Bubba feels, I feel and probably most anyone reading this blog must feel, every time you are forced to listen to a dittohead, a Fox News whore, or any other random Christian Conservative Republican spew forth venomous lies about how we are the liars.

This is dinner in America today. Kinda makes me feel a little sick; must be something I ate.

As a little antacid check out this quote:

"The time has come that the American people know what their Representatives
are doing here in Washington. Are they feeding at the public trough, taking
lobbyist-paid vacations, getting wined and dined by special interest groups? Or
are they working hard to represent their constituents? The people, the American
people, have the right to know... I think the best disinfectant is full
disclosure, not isolation." U.S. Rep. Tom DeLay, 11/16/95

Now isn't that better?
