the only earth?

through the looking glass

So, I'm watching a little of the Republican National Convention. It is really scary and confusing. Their decorations are cheesy and disorienting, people are dressed as Lincoln, the war in Iraq and the war "on terror" are regularly conflated. Lindsey Graham's and Giuliani have implied that John Edwards wants two Americas. And now McCain just got the audience to boo Michael Moore, who is in the press gallery, for a few angry screaming minutes.

... because obviously Moore is a "disingenuous filmmaker who would have us believe that Saddam's Iraq was an oasis of peace." Moore chucked and waved, looking a little like Jabba the Hut. Even Bush (41) & family got in on the heckling action.

Obvs. the Repubs know they aren't on the networks tonight.


p.s. I'm totally voting for Bush -- he stood on a pile of rubble and made threats!

p.p.s. in case you didn't notice, there was a terrorist attack on our country about three years ago.

p.p.p.s. McCain hasn't seen all of Fahrenheit 9/11
