A preview of the next Bush administration's foreign policy? "If Bush wins a second term with Cheney at his side, neo-conservatives such as Perle might well find themselves back on top. If so, you may be able to buy this book on remainder and use it as a scorecard."
  • Book your 2005 tickets to Australia today; beat the rush.
  • Actually, a better score card is "THE GRAND CHESSBOARD - American Primacy And It's Geostrategic Imperatives," Zbigniew Brzezinski, Basic Books, 1997. http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0465027261/104-8558360-5316758?v=glance Read it in college PolSci. Brzezinski was NSA to Ford, round about the same era that Bush 41 was DCI. Thought to myself upon reading it, "wow good thing these whack jobs aren't in office anymore" Guess I should have believed my feral cold warrior of a professor when he said that he believed this book was prescient.
  • Everything I've read lately implies that Bush will most likely beat out Dean if it comes down to those two in the election. Is this actually true or am I reading the wrong things?
  • "An End to Evil"?? howabout "Perpetual Motion's Role in the Grand Unification Theory - How to Defy Logic as a Matter of Foreign Policy or How My Tinfoil Hat Won the War With Luggage Stealing Robots Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!"
  • Even if there were 'evidence' (i.e. polls) to support that idea, it's far too early to tell. If you want to read things that will give you a more accurate idea of how the election will turn out, you might be better off waiting 11 months.
  • Whoops, took too long to post that one!
  • Nice of them to keep telling us in advance (PNAC, et al). Kinda sweeps the rug from under the conspiracy theorists' feet. Less good how all this suddenly and mysteriously becomes inadmissable evidence as soon as each new excuse gets manufactured. "It's WMD! It's al-Quaida! It's our precious bodily fluids!" "No it's not." "How do you know?" "Er. You said so... ow!" *smack, thud* Still, we'll be fine over here in Britain; there's no way that a Labour Prime Minist- ...oh, fuck.
  • Times change. The impending global collapse caused by zombies will make the rule of the Bushies seem like a happy picnic with teddy bears. After all, then all you had to worry about was debt and keeping food on the table. Now, you have to worry about whether little Billy got infected from the bite, and if so whether you can find the cure in time or if you have to put him down for his own good. Plus, zombie cows.
  • Damn zombie cows. Now are they suppose to appear in Bush's third term, or when he gets declared President for Life? I forget.
  • Well, the Curse of Tecumseh might still strike in the next two years...
