politics and 9/11: more from Olbermann

It's Keith Olbermann on MSNBC, telling his side of the 9/11 and aftermath story.... http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/6210240/from/ET/
It is refreshing to find that I am not the only one who is outraged. ...This happened at the same time as ABC airing a "docudrama" about 911 that got them tons of bad press because it was so biased and factually flawed....

From a heroine: Amy Goodman of Democracy Now interviewed the authors of "One Party Country: The Republican Plan for Dominance in the 21st Century." The authors argue that the Republican party owns a clear advantage in the fundamentals of campaigning and has built up a series of structural advantages that make it increasingly difficult to beat. Listen/Watch/Read: http://www.democracynow.org/article.pl?sid=06/09/13/1331232

I wonder if my hunch is correct; that the battle against the neocons will be won be taking the Republican Party away from them. I want the Republican Party to stand for fiscal responsibility, and the avoidance of foreign entanglements, as it did when it was founded. The neocons will have none of this.

And in other hopeful news, in lovely Rhode Island, anti-Bush Republican Lincoln Chafee was chosen in the senate primary. YEAH. He's more anti-Bush than the Democrat he will run against (Sheldon Whitehouse). It will be interesting to see...

In local news, I was disappointed to read that the jail tax was passed, with a 61.5% yes vote.

I found all of the Arizona propositions online and will be spending a fair amount of time over the next several weeks studying them: http://www.azsos.gov/election/2006/Info/PubPamphlet/english/contents.htm
