I've been reading a book of short stories by Neil Gaiman titled Smoke and Mirrors and it contains a story called "The Goldfish Pool and Other Stories". It's about a trip to Los Angeles where the behavior of the inhabitants is nicely summed up by an observation about goldfish: They are so damn stupid that they swim around the pool thinking "I've never been here before" and so even things they have done a thousand times seem new to them. The thing is, the story isn't just about Los Angeles and the cult around the movie industry; it applies to everyone in this country. If it didn't, George W. Bush wouldn't think for a moment that he could pull off yet another Big Lie. It's really unbelievable that he is trying this again... If you have the memory of a goldfish and have forgotten that the same tactic was used on the topics of WMDs and the supposed Saddam/Al-Qaeda link. Follow the link below, and try to remember what you see and read on Election Day.

Bush: â€˜Weâ€™ve Never Been Stay The Courseâ€™
During an interview today on ABCâ€™s This Week, President Bush tried to distance himself from what has been his core strategy in Iraq for the last three years. George Stephanopoulos asked about James Bakerâ€™s plan to develop a strategy for Iraq that is â€œbetween â€™stay the courseâ€™ and â€˜cut and run.â€™â€
Bush responded, â€˜Weâ€™ve never been stay the course, George!â€™.
Why on earth isn't the President of the United States bald-face lying to the American people an impeachable offense? I'm pretty sure it was considered one when Clinton was in office...
