Is the Rush of Dissenting Conservatives On?

Is this enought to give one hope? Will the American people wake up?

Paul Craig Roberts
, (Assistant Secretary of the Treasury in the Reagan administration,) in the Baltimore Chronicle: "At a time when America desperately needs the voices of educated people as a counterweight to the disinformation that emanates from the Bush administration and its supporters, economists have discredited themselves. "

Paul R. Pillar, (CIA National Intelligence Officer for the Near East and South Asia under the Bush Administration, considered the agency's lead analyst in counterterrorism,) in the current issue of Foreign Affairs: "The administration used intelligence not to inform decision-making, but to justify a decision already made. It went to war without requesting -- and evidently without being influenced by -- any strategic-level intelligence assessments on any aspect of Iraq."

addendum: 2/25/06
, (domestic policy aide in the Reagan administration, deputy assistant secretary in the Treasury Department under the first Bush administration and senior fellow at the conservative think tank National Center for Policy Analysis,) in his new book: "IMPOSTOR - How George W. Bush Bankrupted America and Betrayed the Reagan Legacy", writes "...Bush has never really been one of them the way Ronald Reagan was. Bush is more like Richard Nixon -- a man who used the right to pursue his agenda, but was never really part of it. In short, he is an impostor, a pretend conservative."

This is My Sketch of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) riding a camel to Medina

Er, No it isn't. ...Yes, it is my sketch, but it isn't the Prophet Muhammad, okay?

What's This About, Indeed.

Escathon wonders why Bush aide Claude Allen resigns to "spend more time with his family". Hmmm. Let's go a-googling shall we? Wait, what's this? Thru Wikipedia: Allen tied with Baker & Botts, L.L.P. According to this interesting site, "political friendster," Baker & Botts looks mighty suspicious...deep in corrupt and bloody oil money maybe. Check it out. LINK: Political - Baker and Botts

UPDATE: Duh! Baker & Botts, (founded Houston, 1866, serving railroad magnates then), is James Baker's outfit. That's all we need to know folks. Enron, Carlye Group, Halliburton, Prince Sultan bin Abdul Aziz, Azerbaijan, Zapata Petroleum,...Yup! Oil money laundering, war profiteering, murderous South American protection rackets, just the usual mobster stuff folks,...on a global scale that's all. (Hey, who you calling a conspiracy theorist?) There is also rampant speculation that Allen might be another closet White House homosexual, potentially more newsworthy than the Gannon/Guckert affair. Others think Bush's big embarrassment at CSK's funeral made him so red-faced he wanted to punish the nearest black person. (Condoeeza considers George her "husband" so that wouldn't happen.) Stay tuned.

Ms King More Inclusive than I Remembered

Unlike famously bigoted homophobes like Million Man March Executive Director Rev. Willie Wilson, Coretta Scott King was quite outspoken on equality for the gay population. Soulforce has her eloquent speech:
