Chafee Today, Tomorrow--? 

We are all disappointed in John Kerry, of course. Mainly because he lost and then didn’t fight the polecats at the polls. But, maybe he’s spending some of that money he had left over for ads that could help. He’s running an ad in Rhode Island supposedly trying to get Lincoln Chafee, according to an email I got today from him. Here’s the link he sent to the ad:

http://www.johnkerry.com/action/chafee-ad.php and he urges us to “see for yourself.”

He then goes on to say:

Why retain and promote those who have failed to make America more safe and secure? Donald Rumsfeld has been a disaster as Secretary of Defense. That's why over 800,000 people have signed our petition supporting my call for Rumsfeld's resignation. Yet the President stands stubbornly by him.

Because he’s a freakin’ psychopath, you might add. But you’re too nice. And then:

Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz has made repeated and serious miscalculations about the costs and risks America would face in Iraq. Yet now the Bush Administration wants us to believe he is the right person to lead the World Bank.
And now, the Bush administration wants to add John Bolton to that astonishing list.

I will keep you posted on our efforts to stop this nomination from advancing.

John Kerry

P.S. I'm sharing this with you because I want you to know how hard we're working on this critical vote. But, I also want you to be prepared. Should the Bolton nomination make it through committee, we may have to wage a nationwide effort to defeat it on the floor of the Senate.

Nice. But maybe if you hadn’t been so gracious after getting smeared and after the shenanigans in Ohio and Florida, we wouldn’t have to be fighting these bastards for another four years. Sorry. Of course I’ll support fighting them now, but you gotta remember there are still a lot of people who got kicked in the guts on November 2, 2004. People still recovering. People who have been fighting in the trenches for a long, long time, as well as newcomers to politics who got their first taste of bitter defeat against the forces of the F-word.

Still, you’re a Senator and I’m not. So, go get ‘em, big fella. You might consider getting a loaner on Barbara Boxer’s spine, though. On NPR this morning, Chafee said he'd vote to confirm unless some startling evidence came out today. OK, who's got the pictures of Bolton with the German Shepherds and mayonnaise? The video wasn't enough for Sen. Chafee.

UPDATE: Too late for damning pictures, as it seems no sleaze is too sleazy to serve aWol...Bolton appears headed for confirmation

But we knew that. And so, St. John miscounted. There are going to be how many horsemen (and women) of the Apocalypse? Rummy, Wolfie, Condi, Alberto, Chertoff, Bolton, Hughes, Negroponte...
