Happy 40th Birthday To Justice Lewis F. Powell’s War On the American Left
Weeks before his nomination to the Supreme Court by Richard Nixon, corporate tobacco lawyer and right-wing business extremist Lewis F. Powell took a break from golf and his boardroom duties at 11 of America’s biggest corporations to write a manifesto against the then-vibrant American left. His detailed plan, delivered in the form of a memo he predictively titled “Attack of American Free Enterprise System,” was addressed to the corporate criminals at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and used as a blueprint for the whole twisted panoply of today’s fascist propaganda factory: The Heritage Foundation, the Manhattan Institute, the Cato Institute, Accuracy in Academe, Ronald Reagan’s presidency and Fox News can all be traced directly to the full-spectrum methods outlined in the Powell Memo.

Bush/Paulson’s New Communist America Can’t Even Fix Housing Collapse
It’s what America looks like, increasingly. The roads are potholed, the bridges collapsing, metro trains crash and kill as dull-eyed engineers peck text messages, airlines have become Aeroflot, dams and levees busting apart, yearlong waits to get a passport, maimed soldiers sent back to the endless war again and again, and a book-banning big-government cipher from Siberia is briefly popular for being a nasty moron.

Wonkette: The D.C. Gossip » Childlike, Emotionally Stunted Nation Welcomes 2008 Campaign Comic Books
Oh look, it’s America, the nation of 11-year-old fat kids who lack the intellectual capacity to process anything beyond comic books.

Will he man up and admit anything? No. He won’t take questions, won’t talk about his diaper problems, and won’t resign. Wow. Meet the new Republicans. This is the same morality-free douchesack who demanded Clinton quit over a blowjob.
