Deja Vu All Over Again

Ted Rall is considered by the Righties to be one of the most obnoxious liberals in the country. So of course I want to spread the word about him. He's equally talented as a cartoonist and writer.

His current column in The Stranger is a powerful juxtaposition of the Bush Jr. administration and the Nixon years. Both idiots won second terms by a landslide and within two years, their popularity had plummeted, largely due to a military morass in a far off country. Rall's analysis is sharp and unsentimental (where's the joy in saying "I told you so" when 1700 Americans are dead and car bombs seem to be going off every day?). He's easy to read and makes a lot of sense.

I also recommend his column about how the US is perceived around the world.

He's a great cartoonist, a great writer, and a great American. Thanks, Ted.

OK, I hate to link to my own blog from yours, but I think my comments tonight about Shirley Chisolm dovetail nicely here. The parallels between the early 1970s are starting to worry me.

Keep on keepin' on.

OK, I forgot to add some news:

Public support for President Bush is down even more after his speech the other night, which was intended to at least stop the falling approval ratings. Check Zogby.

Public support has dropped to just 43 percent, and the only place where a majority of folks support W. is the OSuth, with 51 percent.

Interestingly, the poll, conducted June 27-29, showed "42 percent would support impeachment proceedings if it were found that the president misled the nation about his reasons for going to war with Iraq." WOW! By the way, it is 52 percent in the West. DOUBLE WOW!

Bush is darn lucky the mid-term elections are a year away. With stalemates or losses on Social Security reform, judicial appointments and other legislative items, Bush is looking like a lamer duck all the time. That's fine with me because while country might not improve, at least it won't get any worse.
