Read some of the live blogging here at DocuDharma and at Daily Kos. As I told her, 73rd Virgin won the prize with her characterization of Petraeus as a “shiny, shiny hero!” That ought to be our new catchphrase, I think.
But it doesn’t matter to me, the hearings, what the shiny, shiny hero said. Nor does it matter to me what our elected Democratic representatives in the House and Senate said. It’s all too surreal for me, all too surreal.
I think I’ve gotten to the point where rhetoric has become meaningless to me, be it in the media or from our government. All I focus on now is what they do — what they say is so predictable as to be … well … surreal.
Mister Bush and his gang of crooks are utterly predictable. We all know what they are going to do — try to continue the War in Iraq as long as they can, make it so the next President has a mess on his/her hands. They can’t change their ways any more and they wouldn’t even if they could.
And from our own side we’ll hear about the investigations, find more and more muck to rake, hear more and more speeches, some so good they’ll be plastered all over the blogosphere in print or video, some so bad they’ll be plastered all over the blogosphere in print or video (plus snarky insults and outraged insults).
