I've been hanging around waiting for some news to break the last few days. I had considered going to a local town hall meeting to give up front and personnal coverage but it was to be held at a fire hall here and I figured I'd not get in and be left standing outside listening to the screeming morons. In a stroke of fate our Rep. Rick Larson had the genious idea to change the venue to a baseball stadium. Kudos to Rick for the forethought. In a baseball stadium a mob of fifty people would sound like a mouse screaming in a concert hall. Rick could easily drownd them out over the stadiums PA system. Needless to say it was a bit more civil than what you've witnessed on the nightly news. As they changed the venue on this at the last minute I didn't attend, but yes some of the same stupid talking points were brought up even though the president disproved them the day before. Again I'll say it "don't confuse me with the facts I've made up my mind." I can only conclude that much like a drowning victim we'll have to save the other side from themselves because they won't do it.
Then there's the other issues I wait patiently for. Will there be the deposition transcripts from the Sibel Edmonds meeting on Saturday? Will Holter actually appoint a special prosecutor for the torture issues? Will the investigations into the attorney firings lead to criminal prosecutions? Only time will tell. All I know is that you can only sweep so much dirt under the rug before everyone knows that all you have is a mound of dirt with a rug on it.
