OBLIGATORY FASCIST REFERENCE OF THE DAY:

No wonder America has so many enemies (ERIC MARGOLIS, 9/28/03, Toronto Sun)

President Bill Clinton was impeached by a Republican-controlled Congress for lying about sex. President George W. Bush and aides lied the United States into a stupid, unnecessary colonial war that has so far killed more than 305 Americans and seriously wounded more than 1,400. It has also cost many thousands of Iraqi dead, and $1 billion US weekly.

Lying about sex is an impeachable offence; lying the nation into war apparently is not.

I was no Clinton fan, but give me his iffy morals any day over Bush's Mussolini-like strutting.


Harold Meyerson calls it a Jefferson Davis strut.

Agreed; how absurd. Il Duce and Jeffy D would never have suffered such a lightweight as George W. (Czar Nick II--aWol might have called him "The Deuce--on the other hand...)

Well, there is one difference: Mussolini would have lost to Saddam.

Ahhh, yes.... a "colonial" war..... of course.

Gosh, those Sixties were just SO much FUN!!! I KNOW they'll come back if we keep wishing, I just KNOW it!

Margolis is a know-nothing who trades on his so-called "right-wing" credentials and connections with Pat Buchanan. Even before 9/11, his columns typically predicted some apocalyptic disaster from every US policy initiative. The only good thing about this article is that Jimmy has been completely taken in.

Nah, I already knew that stuff.
