RILED UP AND ROLLLIN’…MUSINGS AND MISCELLANEA | January 31, 2008

Ralph Nader Flirts with Presidential Bid. Give it up, Ralph…after what you did last time around [including accepting PAC money from REPUBLICANS] who do you think is going to vote for you? When I ponder who it is we need as our next President I try to imagine someone in the office who actually has the ability to LEAD. Nader’s “following” is so minuscule as to be next to non existent. Yes, he had a progressive role at one time, but, despite his rhetoric, Ralphie’s time has PASSED!

Mukasey Won’t Comment on Waterboarding

WASHINGTON (AP) — Attorney General Michael Mukasey said Tuesday he will refuse to publicly say whether the interrogation tactic known as waterboarding is illegal, digging in against critics who want the Bush administration to define it as torture.

Did we say TOLD YOU SO?? Despite harsh questioning by Senators Leahy, Kennedy and Specter, the nations top Law Enforcement official refused [again] to condemn the torture technique of waterboarding as, of all things, torture.

“Given that waterboarding is not part of the current program and may never be added to the current program, I do not think it would be appropriate for me to pass definitive judgment on the technique’s legality,” he said.

The reasoning behind this deliberate dance of deceit? If the AG formally recognizes waterboarding as torture it puts his bosses, Mssr Bush and Cheney, in deep doo doo, mainly because they and their minions are ultimately responsible and could therefor conceivably be charged with War Crimes under the Geneva Conventions. Gasp! Shades of Alberto Gonzalez!

  1. Thanks for the endorsement Gary. The videos can be found here: http://esrati.com/?cat=182
    I believe there will be a day when all candidates will be chosen by their positions and ideas- instead of by soundbites and dollars raised.
    It’s important for everyone who looks and compares candidates- to tell all their friends and spread the word- since I can’t write huge checks to my own campaign like Jane can.
    If you like what you read on my site- please consider buying a t-shirt, sign or making a small donation. And also, download the free book my father wrote me in 1969: “Dear Son, Do you really want to be an American?”
