Lies, Hypocrisy, and Lies

Dowd: "The only balance W. likes is the slavering, Pravda-like "Fair and Balanced" coverage Fox News provides. Mr. Bush pledges to spread democracy while his officials strive to create a Potemkin press village at home. This White House seems to prefer softball questions from a self-advertised male escort with a fake name to hardball questions from journalists with real names; it prefers tossing journalists who protect their sources into the gulag to giving up the officials who broke the law by leaking the name of their own C.I.A. agent." [NYT]

Herbert: "As a nation, does the United States have a conscience? Or is anything and everything O.K. in post-9/11 America? If torture and the denial of due process are O.K., why not murder? When the government can just make people vanish - which it can, and which it does - where is the line that we, as a nation, dare not cross?" [NYT]

What has happened to this nation? We're now ok w/ torture, pollution, an economy in the dumpster, lies, hypocrisy, lies, and did I mention lies? Somebody pinch the collective nation, it's time to wake up.

More disgusting acts of Republicanism. [NYTE] And Wal-Mart is still the Devil.
