Ghoulish Opportunistic Pandering
Posted by Lorelei Kelly

Stands for GOP. After issuing talking points claiming Ned Lamont's victory would encourage Al Queda, they raise the threat level to red. Didn't stop there. Then there's this revelation :

"Weeks before September 11th, this is going to play big," said another White House official, who also spoke on condition of not being named, adding that some Democratic candidates won't "look as appealing" under the circumstances. - AFP, August 11, 2006

Then yesterday, the Republican National Committee sent out a fundraising letter, written by Rudy Giuliani:"In the middle of a war on terror, we need to remain focused on furthering Republican ideas more than ever before… Please make your commitment felt
with a financial contribution for $500, $250, $100, $50, $35 or $25 ...blah blah blah..."

Americablog does a nice recap.

Is it true that the GOP is so desperate that they have to hope people die in order to raise money?

Be aware of neo-con media, like a background chorus, turning our security challenges today--along with the political opposition-- into a Cold War redux. It really, really is not. Having lived in 1989 Berlin, I'll go into this more later.

Remember, the people in charge now are the same ones who will fund any number of outer space techno-fantasies that enriches their campaign contributors and won't even fix Amtrak. International terrorism has increased every day that George Bush has been president. Its not a coincidence. Bush's policies have thrown gasoline on the fire of resentment and hatred (latest fire, our friends in Lebanon). Remember 04? Mr. Cheney spread the gospel far and wide, declaring that Senator Kerry was "weak" because he talked about international terrorism as a law enforcement challenge. Well, The Heathrow terror plot was uncovered by Pakistani, British and American policework and intelligence. Mr. Kerry was right. He still is. Law enforcement cooperation from nations who are our friends, Mr. Cheney and company, not vanity wars, is what will keep Americans safe.
