Just a couple of bad leaders

Conventional wisdom said Hillary Rodham Clinton was the smartest candidate among the crowded fields for both the Democratic and Republican Presidential nomination. The same conventional wisdom promised great things from Nancy Pelosi - the first woman to lead the House of Representative as Speaker. So much for conventional wisdom.

Is Washington burning?

The mysterious fire in the Old Executive Office Building on the White House grounds sent conspiracy theorists into overdrive Thursday. What, they wondered, went up in smoke in Vice President Dick Cheney's suite of offices in the OEOB? Hey, we love a good conspiracy theory here at Capitol Hill Blue and we learned long ago that anything is possible from the Bush boys and girls at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue so we're happy to join in the latest guessing game of what did they know and when did they burn it?

The Iraq war is no longer newsworthy

The Pew Research Center’s Project for Excellence in Journalism found recently that news media coverage of the war in Iraq is dropping and, as a result, American support for the conflict is rising. In other words, less news is good news for George W. Bush and his failed war. Wall-to-wall coverage of the upcoming Presidential primaries along with the latest antics of a pantyless Britney Spears and any other bimbo du jour is more important than an illegal and immoral war where the American death toll is fast closing in on 4,000.

Gay-bashing political Neanderthals

As Republican Neanderthals go, Rep. Duncan Hunter of California is a particularly primitive political hack, a back-to-the-stone-age knuckle dragger who thinks men should be men, women should be seen and not heard and gays don’t belong in the military.

Hunter says gays can’t be “hardened warriors.”

Blow jobs for Bush?

Is House Speaker Nancy Pelosi venturing over to the Oval Office late at night to nosh on the First Member and otherwise pleasure the most unpopular President in American history? Or does George W. Bush have a file of photos of Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid shacked up at one of those seedy motels that line U.S. Route 1 south of Washington?

Look into his eyes

Hunters know all too well the look that spilled out of our television sets like political diarrhea Tuesday: The look of a cornered animal, the most dangerous time to face a desperate predator. You saw it in the eyes of George W. Bush, America's too-often discredited President, caught in yet another lie.

Abandon hope all ye who vote here

Slightly less than a year away from the 2008 Presidential elections and many readers of this web site tell me they are already sick of the whole thing. Little wonder. Many of the incredibly large gathering of Presidential wannabes on both sides of the political fence - a crowd by anyone's standards - have been raising money, running ads and sniping each other for more than a year now and the level is only increasing with the primary season just 39 days away.
